Hen do boat party in Kalkan, Turkey

Who said all hen parties have to be raucous? For a more relaxed and sophisticated hen celebration, we arranged a luxury gulet experience followed by an evening of dinner and cocktails back on shore.

In more detail

Hen by day: Welcomed on board the gulet with prosecco and a personalised goodie bag, the hens spent the day cruising round the local bays with plenty of stops for swimming, paddle boarding and frolicking with inflatables. And, with a drone on board, amazing footage was captured as a memento of the event.

Hen by night: Back on dry land, the hens continued the celebrations with a meze dinner followed by drinks, dancing and some more traditional hen party games in the local town.

I was lucky enough to attend a hen party organised by Oligra out in Turkey and it was quite possibly one of the best days of my life. Every aspect of the day was organised flawlessly and yet it still felt relaxed, intimate and personal to us as a group.

As soon as we boarded the boat there were drinks and goodie bags waiting for us with personalised towels and swimsuits - a really special touch. We spent the day swimming, eating delicious food, sipping on cool drinks and relaxing on sun loungers on the deck of our private boat. We had inflatables, canoes, snorkels and paddle boards which added an extra element of humour as we all attempted some water sports a few bottles of champagne down.

To say that Oligra thought of everything would be an understatement. As a group we love capturing memories. They took this brief on board and arranged for a drone to take snaps of us during the day, so no one had to be left out of the photos.

I’ll forever be in awe at how Oligra managed to organise this in Turkey all the way from England. Our day really was a testament to the attention to detail, care and dedication that only a small boutique events planning company can bring. We had such a diverse group of ages and personalities in our group and they catered for everyone – thank you so much for such a special day!
