The coastal town of Belek in Antalya serves as the setting for the brand new, 5-star Cullinan Belek, named for the largest rough diamond ever discovered. Set along the sparkling azure waters of the Turkish Riviera, the new property boasts its own private white-sand beach, with 600 plush guestrooms (including 10 luxurious villas), all providing sea views. The hotel also has 13 swimming pools, 10 dining venues and five bars.
Guests can arrange for personal butlers and guest assistants. Leisure activities for adults include golfing on the 36-hole European Golf Design course while enjoying views of the Mediterranean Sea, Beşgöz River and Taurus Mountains. Night-owl golfers can access the course after the sun goes down, thanks to night lighting incorporated into the design.
“Cullinan Belek aims to transform the luxury hospitality offering in the region. After many years of preparation and planning, we are thrilled to be opening in June 2022,” said Gökhan Özbatır, COO, Cullinan Belek. “The hotel has a wealth of activities for guests to partake in, including our crown jewel, the Cullinan Links Golf Course, which I am certain will be one of the most beautiful golf courses our guests have ever seen. The resort is the ideal escape for families with Upupa our fantastic kids club and aquapark. The entire team is excited to welcome our first guests this summer and we look forward to a successful opening season.”
There’s also the full-service C’Espace Spa, a 26,000-plus-square-foot spa and fitness center with a full menu of soothing treatments and therapies. Bring the family — the resort’s Upupa kid’s club features Hasbro licensed shows and a waterpark with more than a dozen slides.
