Set in the heart of a stunning Mediterranean landscape of sea and forest, Gloria Hotels & Resorts offers a luxurious and stylish guest experience. Its trio of five-star seaside hotels plus a premier golf course that caters to everyone from adventurous, outdoorsy types to spa lovers, beachgoers and gourmands 

With the Mediterranean coast on one side and fragrant pine forests on the other, Gloria Hotels & Resorts offers guests an unforgettable experience in the heart of nature. Catering to active, adventurous types, as well as to sun worshippers and gourmands, the beachfront complex includes thalassotherapy centres and spas, a la carte restaurants specialising in a variety of cuisines, and the Gogi Kids’ Club. It’s also the perfect place to swing a nine iron — the Gloria Golf Club is the only 45-hole course in Turkey. 

Elsewhere, the Gloria Sports Arena is the most comprehensive privately financed sports complex in the whole of Europe. Transportation between the Gloria Sports Arena, Gloria Hotels & Resorts and Gloria Golf Club is provided by free-of-charge shuttle buses (the distance in between the three sites is from two to
three miles). 

Gloria Hotels & Resorts offers exquisite accommodation at all four hotels (Gloria Golf Resort, Gloria Verde Resort, Gloria Serenity Resort and Gloria Sports Arena). The number of standard rooms in all the hotels — ranging from 100 to 293 — reflects the company’s commitment to quality over quantity. And to complement these rooms are elegant suites and villas that leave no wish unfulfilled.

Extraordinary architecture and elegant design, as well as personal atmosphere, create an unforgettable experience for guests staying at Gloria Hotels & Resorts. 

The Gloria Serenity Resort has 369 rooms, many of which have their own whirlpool bath, terrace and garden. Gloria Golf Resort is situated next to a 1,600ft-long sandy beach, at the estuary where the Acisu River meets the Mediterranean Sea. It has a total of 515 rooms and is ideal for families who want to enjoy all the amenities the hotel group offers.

After a holiday at the Gloria Verde Resort, which lies in the midst of a pine forest and contains no fewer than 293 rooms, guests are guaranteed to return to their day-to-day lives refreshed and revitalised. 

The enchanting world of Spa & Thalasso

Diverse wellness and beauty treatments with seawater await guests in the Asklépion Spa & Thalasso. One-of-a-kind therapies, natural beauty treatments, healing effects, relaxing zones, enchanting scents — discover the world of Spa & Thalasso, full of enjoyment, health and cosiness.

Gloria Hotels & Resorts Spa & Thalasso provides international branded products and employs professional spa therapists with international experience to offer relaxing and natural healing treatments — many centred on seawater, algae and sea salt.

In addition to the first thalassic centre of the region, the Asklépion Spa & Thalasso in the Gloria Verde Resort, two further wellness areas are available for guests: the Serenity Spa of the Gloria Serenity Resort and the La Source Spa of the Gloria Golf Resort.

Golfing all year round 

The mild climate of the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding landscape are ideal for golf enthusiasts. Throughout the whole year, Gloria Hotels & Resorts offers the chance to play at its Gloria Golf Club, which is the largest golf course of its kind in Turkey. Gloria Golf Academy, meanwhile, has one of the largest playing areas for guests to enjoy — more than 35,000sq ft — the ideal platform for perfecting a swing and improving putting accuracy.

The Gloria Golf Club has a total of 45 holes (two 18-hole championship courses — the Old Course and New Course — and one nine-hole course known as the Verde Course). The site was designed by the renowned French golf course architect Michel Gayon. Here golfers will find the perfect service — whether on the golf course, in the Club House, in the restaurant-bar, or in the Proshop, which is fully stocked with leading brands. A further privilege is the free-of-charge shuttle service between the golf course and the accommodation inside the hotel resort.

At one with nature

Gloria Hotels & Resorts is definitely at one with nature. Corporate social responsibility is of the utmost priority. Thus, the company’s philosophy is to protect the natural environment and everything associated with it for a better future, and a healthy and safe playground for children. Gloria Hotels & Resorts is convinced that with plenty of little steps, huge leaps can be taken. One of the company’s most successful recent projects is its Forest of the Future programme, during which it planted around 500 trees.

Delights in the Gloria Hotels & Resorts

A vacation at one of the Gloria Hotels & Resorts sites also includes top-quality cuisine. In the classy and beautifully designed restaurants, delicacies from around the world are served. Guests can enjoy a choice of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, sample the latest trends from modern cookery, and tuck into authentic dishes from countries including France, Italy and Spain, as well as far east cuisine and of course fish dishes.
