With perceived levels of security in different places of the world playing a large role in our day to day lives now it is clear that it is affecting the places we choose to holiday to. Belek, Turkey is one of the best golfing resorts around both for service, value and its courses and hotels. This blog is about how we know that things in Belek are as good as they ever have been despite everything that is going on!
One of the grandest resorts in Belek is the five-star Maxx Royal Belek Golf Resort, which like most of the resorts here is situated directly on a beautiful sandy beach. With a fabulous 18-hole golf course on site as well as stunning rooms and 7 different swimming pools this resort is in a league of its own. The hotel also boasts several great restaurants which serve many different cuisines from traditional Turkish specialities to Japanese and Greek food. There are also nine different bars in the hotel which means that you will always be able to find the perfect place to rewind after a long day on the golf course or after soaking up the sun all day! The hotel also features a beautiful spa with a range of treatment options including both skin treatments and massages as well as a traditional Turkish bath. On-site there is also a mini-waterpark and other such activities run by the animation team so there is never a dull moment at the Maxx Royal Resort. This is one of the most luxurious and high-class hotels and a golfing holiday here is definitely not one to be passed up on!
The Montgomerie Maxx Royal course is a spectacular course and is one of the most sought after courses to play in Belek. With beautiful fairways playing through pine forests and navigating eight lakes over the duration of the course and especially on the front nine holes it is no surprise that this course is a tricky one and ideal for those golfers looking for a stern challenge! On the back nine, there is a lot less water involved but that doesn’t mean that the course gets any easier as the greens are undulating which makes placing the ball where you want to play it most challenging! This course has a multitude of great holes but the 18th is spectacular where you need the upmost skill and concentration to navigate your ball from the tee through a narrow stretch of pine trees before avoiding strategically placed bunkers and a last water hazard that will more often than not trip you up at the final hurdle!
Voyage Belek Golf & Spa is a five-star, all inclusive resort placed directly on its own stretch of beautiful Mediterranean beach which guests can enjoy. With eight different restaurants serving a range of different cuisines from Italian to Mexican to Japanese to of course, traditional Turkish food there is definitely something for everyone here. All of the rooms are fully-furnished with a lovely balcony on which guests can enjoy their own private views of either the Mediterranean or the stunning gardens surrounding the hotel. As well as many restaurants there are also nine different bars to choose from when deciding where to enjoy your post-round drink! The resort also boasts a stunning spa centre where guests can enjoy a range of massage treatments and a Vitamin Bar. The resort hosts five different swimming pools as well as an adventure park – the excitement never ends here! This is the perfect destination for your next golfing holiday to Belek and with the Titanic Golf Club so close by as well as a regular shuttle to the Maxx Royal Montgomerie course what could be better than a stunning hotel with some great golfing options?
At Titanic Golf Club there are 27 spectacular holes which are unlike most other courses in Belek. The course is set against the backdrop of the stunning Taurus Mountains and between the river and the seafront which means that there are some truly special views from this great course. With three different loops of nine holes it is possible to mix and match the loops meaning that you can play the course you most want to and will most enjoy – making sure there is something for everyone here! The second loop of nine holes runs along the Mediterranean coastline whilst the others are more of a parkland style! This is a fabulous golf course and is definitely worth a play on your next golf break to Belek due to its diverse course layout and great value!
A Golf Escapes group of 24 golfers recently came back from staying in the Sueno hotel in Belek and had a fantastic time without any stresses or worries!
“Our group of 24 has just returned from Belek; this was our fourth stay and won’t be our last.
Despite some security concerns from some of the group (and others who decided not to go) the standard is as good as ever, if not better than previous visits. The Sueno hotel was great, staff friendly and the golf courses in excellent condition. Best of all, because of the “situation”, the courses were the quietest they’ve been and the service and reception we received from the locals was superb.
Security is an obvious concern in the current world we live but I have no hesitations in recommending Belek. The current value is beyond compare, and the service is better than ever.”
We hope that this blog has opened your eyes to some of the treasures of Belek and that you will consider a golf break to Turkey in the near future for a golfing holiday full of top quality service, great value and even better hotels and golfing experiences!
