Sirene Belek Hotel given €2m new look for 2019
Golfers and families will have even more to look forward to when staying at the five-star Sirene Belek Hotel from 2019 with the luxury Turkish venue undergoing a major €2million refurbishment this winter.
As part of an on-going investment programme, all 233 Standard Junior Suites in the main building of the all-inclusive hotel are being modernised and given a fresh new look.
Each bedroom – which measure from 47 to 95sqm – are being redecorated and equipped with an array of new furnishings including top-of-the-range beds as part of the upgrade but disruption will be kept to a minimum, with the work due to be completed before February 1.
One of two five-star all-inclusive hotels at PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club – one of Europe’s premier golf resorts – the 442-room Sirene Belek boasts an array of outstanding sports and leisure facilities including the resort’s two world-class 18-hole golf courses, The Pasha and the PGA Sultan – host of the 2012 Turkish Airlines World Golf Final which featured former world number ones Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
Facilities on offer include a 50m Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis, football, numerous watersports, a water park and kids’ club. A luxury spa is also available while players can sample an array of different international culinary experiences at the resort’s variety of bars and restaurants.
Situated 25 minutes from Antalya in the heart of the Turkish golf riviera, PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club was the first golf resort in Turkey to feature 36 holes.
Opened in 2003, the par-71 PGA Sultan course measures 6,477m from the back tees and players must negotiate a number of hazards to score well on the narrow, challenging layout, including no fewer than 12 lakes and 122 bunkers.
The Pasha, which was also designed by David Jones in association with European Golf Design, is wider and more inviting as it meanders through a mixture of towering pine trees and woodland.
Alongside the Kempinski Hotel The Dome, the Sirene Belek Hotel is one of two five-star hotels at PGA National Turkey, with both offering access to a variety of five-star golf, sports and lifestyle experiences.
Golfers can enjoy seven nights’ all-inclusive accommodation at the Sirene Belek Hotel this March including four rounds of golf (two on The Pasha, two on PGA Sultan) for £679 (based on two people sharing a double room).
