However, if you are looking for something special and dream of a measured rest without fuss, the level of the hotel, of course, must match.
The most suitable options can be found in the area of Belek, considered one of the most elite and privileged. Thanks to its mild climate, friendly service and decent hotel complexes, spread on a long pier of the Mediterranean sea, this resort town has long (and firmly) won the love of tourists who come here from all over the world to not only enjoy a great beach holiday, but also to improve their skills in Golf – for avid golfers here all conditions. Therefore, based on what people choose this destination for recreation, you can be sure that the quality of service here will definitely be at the highest level.
One of these complexes, which is guaranteed to be a quiet romantic weekend and a noisy family (or friendly) holiday, is the hotel Ela Quality Resort. Why pay attention to this five-star hotel? First, the trip from Antalya airport to the resort, located in a picturesque location near the center of Belek, takes about 30 minutes, so you do not even have time to feel discomfort from the road (this is especially important for those who can not tolerate travel by car or those who travel with young children). Secondly, it is not a chain hotel, so it is under the close care of the owners, who make every effort to make your stay as cozy and memorable as possible.
For example, you can stay in one of the comfortable rooms with incredible sea views and a Jacuzzi, where you can relax after a flight and a 30-minute drive from the airport, or choose an impressive family duplex.
At your service: spacious Suite Resort Suite consisting of a living room and bedrooms with panoramic views of the garden, Deluxe Suite includes a living room, a bedroom with carpet flooring, a bathroom with Jacuzzi and a balcony with sea views, a two-storey superior Suite consisting of a living room with a balcony and a bedroom with access to a terrace with Jacuzzi, two-storey Suite Premier Suite with a balcony and a terrace overlooking the sea, on the first floor of which is a living room, and on the second floor — bedrooms and terraces with Jacuzzi, ELA Prestige Suite is decorated in a classic style and has stunning views of the Mediterranean sea and the Taurus mountains. A helpful Butler and a private pavilion are a nice bonus for those who decide to choose this room.
In addition, the hotel has honeymoon suites Honeymoon Suite with bedroom, bathroom with Jacuzzi, balcony overlooking the sea, luxurious satin bed linen, pillows in the form of hearts, fresh flowers, “Breakfast of love” and other romantic attributes.
But if you want to really impress your soul mate, then look at one of the seven luxury villas with a private pool (there are five compact villas Ela Palace and two stunning villas Sultan Palace, which will comfortably accommodate a large company).
Two-storey Sultan Palace, where the splendor of Palace luxury is felt immediately, as soon as you cross the threshold, includes four bedrooms with bath and Jacuzzi, lobby, dining room, living room, kitchen, staff room, relaxation room, Turkish bath, fitness room, beautiful garden with heated pool and Jacuzzi. By the way, if you suddenly after a few days spent in this wonderful place, you decide to exchange vows (or suddenly want to repeat them), then right at the Villa you can organize a solemn wedding ceremony and an exquisite Banquet.
And in the two-storey Villa Ela Palace, which includes three bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, as well as a Turkish bath, sauna and terrace with Jacuzzi, so comfortable environment that you can forget for a while that you are in the hotel complex and feel at home. A cozy hammock by the pool and home-like intimate barbecue in the garden complete this picture.
Regardless of which Villa you choose, you can be sure that your stay will not be disturbed, on the contrary, you will have the impression that you are just the two of you in this resort. This is because the architects came up with the idea to arrange the villas so that each guest has the feeling that there is only him, the sea, activity for every taste and individual service. Indeed, the villas are waiting for a truly Royal reception: transfer “airport-hotel-airport”, easier check-in, room service, personal Butler service, free reservations in all a la carte restaurants, a separate telephone for communication with staff, sauna and other privileges. If you want to enjoy your holiday on the beach, then there will be a separate Bungalow, and if you have booked a Villa for at least a week, then you will also receive a compliment from the hotel – lunch from the chef, consisting of grilled juicy meat, local fish and vegetables.
Variety of tastes
For all other guests who choose to stay in a room with a sea view, there is a “generous” Breakfast in the main restaurant of the hotel Enderun, which runs the risk of smoothly flowing into lunch, if you will not force yourself to get up from the table – so delicious, fresh and quality dishes are offered by the local chef. If you want traditional Turkish cuisine, then for lunch look at the Ottoman institution Ab-i Lal. The incredible design of the restaurant (starting with a stunning carved wooden door, which was created eight months on ancient samples and ending with ancient Turkish utensils and a copy of the room of the last Sultan) will not leave anyone indifferent. For a moment you may think that you are in the time of the Ottoman Empire or suddenly found yourself among the scenery for the film “Magnificent century”. Just do not get too excited when you find yourself in the room of the Sultan – any of your word or exclamation will be heard in every corner of the restaurant.
For those who prefer East Asian cuisine, we recommend to book a table for dinner at the Japanese restaurant Teppanyaki Hida, where the witty chef will arrange for you a real “fire show”, showing the process of cooking on the so-called “hot” table.
But, and if you and this is not enough (or want culinary diversity for every day of rest), then you can taste the dishes in one of the seven restaurants a la carte, working on the system of pre-paid reservation, snack bars, confectionery, which offer local sweets and incredibly delicious ice cream, which, according to experts, is not inferior to the famous Italian Gelato.
Here, for sure, every guest will find something to their liking: from the soothing beach doing nothing and leisurely exploring the amazing landscape, to active sports (around the hotel there are 15 Golf clubs developed by European designers), incendiary parties at the club Heat On South or watching new products in the hotel cinema.
If your chosen one suddenly decided to become an avid fan and hung in the men’s Club bar in front of huge screens for broadcasting sports events, then you can spend this time usefully and go down to the Spa with a gym and a heated pool. Well, if you have planned a “special evening” and you want to conquer your partner , then, in addition to standard procedures, you can try Royal care in the form of masks with 24-carat gold and caviar extract. During these procedures, every woman is guaranteed to feel like a representative of the Royal dynasty, no less.
In Ela Quality Resort, in fact, everything is thought out in such a way that you, in fact, can not even leave the hotel – only if you want to go on one of the many excursions, walk around the city center or suddenly decide to remember your childhood in the amusement Park, located nearby.
