Maxx Royal’s Turquoise Coast Resorts Take Relaxation To A New Level
What influences you most when you book a holiday? Is it the food? The scenery or nature? Perhaps it’s a bit of history and culture you need. Or maybe it’s deep blue sea on your doorstep.
The Turkish Riviera, also known as the Turquoise Coast, comprises 620 miles of beach, Aegean and Mediterranean waters and mountains on the southwest coast of Turkey – and it delivers all of the above. The town of Belek boasts pine forests and archaeological sites, including the Roman amphitheatre at Aspendos. Kemer, on the other side of the city of Antalya, also has its fair share of Greco-Roman ruins and the spectacular Olympos Beydağları National Park. And let’s not forget the delights of Turkish cuisine.
So far, so many boxes ticked for a great holiday. We are ignoring one inescapable fact, however. When you are not splashing in the pool or playing a round of golf (more on that later), you will spend a large part of your day doing absolutely nothing. Because this is what a holiday is about. The not doing. The inactivity. The opposite of whatever your normal, hectic, day-to-day life involves.
Where you stay is king, then. Maxx Royal has resorts in Belek and Kemer and understands the importance of rest and relaxation while you are away. It is dedicated to making its guests’ downtime as special as possible.
Maxx Royal Kemer Resort makes the most of its glorious natural surroundings. The resort’s design, which was shortlisted for an award at the 2015 World Architecture Festival, is inspired by the synergy of the four elements. It is built in the middle of the bay, surrounded by pine trees and private beaches. It is cleverly set into the mountain and goats are known occasionally to wander down and join guests on lazy afternoons. Those are the only visitors you will see – privacy is a big part of the experience with Maxx Royal.
For a truly indulgent holiday, check into one Maxx Royal’s hotel’s most exclusive properties, its villas. Combining the seclusion of a private villa with the impeccable service of a five-star hotel, these spacious properties are intended for families or large groups who really want to push the boat out.
At Kemer, the Royal Beach and aptly named Presidential villas provide the ultimate Maxx Royal experience, with in-built amenities including steam rooms, saunas, fitness rooms and Turkish baths, along with direct access from the villa to the beach. You’ll also enjoy the services of your very own private butler, who is on hand to indulge any request, however trivial, for the duration of your stay.
The service is also available in Belek’s finest properties, the Owner and Presidential villas, a pair of colonial-style properties nestled in wooded areas on the resort’s award-winning golf course. Sounds pretty luxurious, right? Don’t just take our word for it: the Kemer resort has been given the nod by Leading Hotels of the World, an independent hotel group known for holding its members to exacting standards of quality.
At Maxx Royal Belek Golf Resort, you will find the same luxury and high standards. If you’re here to play golf, you might have to work on that swing at home, because the accommodation and facilities will exceed your expectations and you may not make it onto the fairway. The Albatross Villas are elegantly designed and overlook stunning landscaped gardens. The Presidential and Owner Villas can sleep 12, so are perfect for a large group of friends or family. All the villas here are two storeys and come with a Jacuzzi bath or shower and a sauna. If you want to go even deeper, visit the MaxxWell Spa, which offers a wide range of massage treatments and therapies.
Maxx Royal understands the importance of downtime. How many times have you come back from a holiday feeling you need a holiday? This summer, we are taking our rest and relaxation seriously. And we know where we’ll be heading.
