Restaurants & Bars at Phokaia Beach Resort

Foça, Turkey


Leah Oldroyd

General Manager

Hello, I am Leah, I started off my season life as a tennis coach back in 2010, and I have been very lucky to work in some fantastic countries such as Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Australia, France, Austria, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I love working in different countries as I find different cultures and languages fascinating. I am very sporty and you will see me trying my luck at both land sports and watersports throughout the summer. One of the reasons why I love Phokaia so much is the village of Foca that is 2.5k away. It’s a beautiful fishing village and very authentic, there are lots of little bars and fresh fish restaurants around the fishing harbour and the yacht marina. The locals are so welcoming.

I am so excited to be back to Phokaia Beach Resort, it is my favourite resort for so many different reasons.

Yasemin Guler

Operations Manager

My name is Yasemin, I first started working with Mark Warner in 2022, as a sports admin on the waterfront. I am now the Operations manager at Phokaia. I love the Phokaia beach resort, and the local town, where I have lived in for many years. When I am not at the waterfront, I gravitate towards the Tiki bar, my favourite spot with its beach vibes and beautiful sunsets. I can’t wait to welcome you all to this beautiful country and excellent resort.

Hana Kenealy

Childcare Manager

Hello, My name is Hana I have been working for Mark Warner since 2019. As a childcare Manager, I really like having the chance to work with children of all different ages. I love the Phokaia beach resort because of the different activities, and the beautiful places you can chill and enjoy the views around the beach.

Oscar Golt

Waterfront Manager

My name is Oscar. I joined Mark Warner in 2019 as a Dinghy Instructor in Sardinia and have worked my way up ever since at a number of different Greek resorts including Kamari in Rhodes and Aeolian Village in Lesvos. I've also worked winter seasons in our ski resorts in the French Alps. My favourite things about Phokaia are the great conditions and sailing area, and the beautiful surrounding areas like Foça town. I look forward to seeing everybody out enjoying all the watersports we have to offer.

Spoilt for bar choice

Enjoy a drink at one of the three bars at Phokaia Beach Resort.

Tiki Bar

The Tiki Bar is located on the beachfront near to the Waterfront centre. The bar boasts a beach club vibe that serves beers, cocktails and soft drinks for you to enjoy whilst you relax on comfortable seating to contemporary chilled music - the perfect Instagramable setting!

Terrace Bar

Situated by the Dionisos restaurant, perfect for a catch up after a long day on the beach or out on bikes.

Jetty Bar

Enjoy a sundowner and the incredible views at sunset from a choice of two beach bars while you catch the last of the rays.

Evenings to suit all tastes

Phokaia Beach Resort evenings are as chilled or as entertaining as you choose. Many guests opt for a relaxed catch up in one of the bars after a day in the sun or on the go.
The Mark Warner team organises some low-fi entertainment on a few evenings a week, that might include a quiz or a game of "Tipsy Tennis" for which tennis skills are little advantage!
The hotel also has its own entertainment programme that attracts both Mark Warner and other international guests from around the resort and is packed with live music and cabaret style shows for all the family.
What's more the childcare team always ensures our younger guests are well catered for with films, games and evening activities laid on for all age groups.
