Rezidor announces Hotel Missoni Belek Antalya
Rezidor (www.rezidor.com) has announced that the Hotel Missoni Belek, Antalya, a 138 room-property on the famous Turkish Riviera, will welcome its first guests in 2013. Hotel Missoni, which debuted in 2009, is Rezidor's bold and fashionable lifestyle brand, and each hotel is personally designed by creative director Rosita Missoni, founder of the iconic Italian fashion house Missoni.
"We develop Hotel Missoni in carefully selected city centres and upcoming resort destinations. Antalya is a perfect location for this exciting, design-conscious and authentic brand," said Kurt Ritter, president & CEO of Rezidor. “The very first Hotel Missoni opened its doors in Edinburgh, Scotland - further properties are under development in Kuwait, Oman and Brazil."
The hotel in Antalya will be a golf and wellness resort located 5 km east of the city of Belek on a hilltop overlooking olive groves, fruit orchards and the sea. It will form part of a high-profile mixed-use development; featuring residential villas, a country club, a sports club, and boutique retail shops. The focal point will be an 18-hole golf course adjacent to the hotel, designed by the Swedish golf champion Annika Sorenstam.
The hotel will offer 110 stylish guest rooms and 28 luxurious villas ranging from 200 to 900 metres square. All will feature Missoni's design and colour scheme. Two restaurants, including the signature Cucina Missoni will be available in addition to a ballroom and meeting space. For relaxation after a round of golf guests can enjoy the 1,100 metre square spa and leisure area, offering two swimming pools, a spa, Turkish baths, a fitness centre, and a kids club.
Antalya is Turkey's most visited tourist area, with visitors being drawn to its miles of sandy beaches, year-round sunshine and a wealth of tourist and historical attractions. It is also an established golfing destination with over a dozen courses.
The Rezidor group now has four hotels in operation and two under development in Turkey.
