With an average winter temperature of up to 22C and up to 8hrs of sunlight, the Turkish Riviera can offer the perfect respite for those looking for some warm and sunny days away this winter, without the jet lag of long-haul travel!
Recently opened, the luxury five-star Cullinan Belek resort in Antalya is situated on the turquoise coast with its expansive stretch of private white-sand beach, offering a big dose of vitamin D along with plenty of vitamin sea.
Some of the 13 pools at the resort are heated in the winter making sure that guests can enjoy the facilities, entertainment and gastronomy options all year round. Inspired by the largest diamond ever found, Cullinan Belek is a shining example of seaside perfection that is redefining the luxury travel experience for couples, friends and families.
Set against a backdrop of the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, bird-rich pine forests and the magnificent Taurus Mountains, Cullinan Belek has been designed to highlight the beauty of its surrounding nature and has combined it with elegance and style at the forefront.
Cullinan Belek offers a personalised approach to luxury with a wide selection of accommodation options including family rooms, swim-up suites and private villas. Guests can expect 24/7 access to a guest/smart assistant throughout their stay.
Winter is the ideal time to enjoy the extensive range of massages or Ayurvedic treatments at C’espace Spa. The spa is 8,000 square metres making it one of the largest in Europe. It is the perfect place to fit in a workout, book a beauty treatment such as a laser facial, a Thermes Marins or Ayurvedic massage, or experience a traditional Turkish Hammam.
Guests can relax with a cocktail or two in one of several bars around the resort or refuel in one of three restaurants during the winter season, the Beef Grill Club, Asian Breeze and Pascarella, offering a range of international dishes to choose from. With a commitment to using local produce where possible, the food options are as delicious as they are nutritious.
The resort is also home to the Cullinan Links Golf Club, a 36-hole golf course that boasts both sea and river views, as well as night lights to accommodate late tee-offs.
