About Delphin Imperial
The Delphin Imperial Hotel is a luxury 5 star hotel in the resort town of Lara, near Antalya, Turkey. The beachfront hotel evokes the look of a cruise ship ready to sail out into the Mediterranean Sea. The interiors of the hotel have been decorated with an eye to luxury and comfort, an aesthetic that follows through into the guest rooms.
Being directly on the beachfront provides the sound of the ocean waves rolling into the beach as a gentle background as you relax on your private balcony or on the sun loungers or cabanas on the pool terrace or on the beach itself. The hotel takes a family friendly approach, with ample space and facilities for those seeking to relax, while the kids are entertained by the children’s clubs, amusement park and waterpark on site.
