3.47pm 8th July 2024 - Travel

Kempinski Hotel The Dome Belek, located on the shores of the Turkish Mediterranean sea, has ushered in a new era of luxury with an impressive upgrade across the entire property.

Following a comprehensive renovation of all 158 rooms and suites, the hotel just unveiled 31 exclusive Lagoon Suites and 12 Lagoon Golf Suites, offering a new sense of private luxury in addition to the new restaurant Seljuk and the fully refurbished restaurant Lale.

Architect Kürşat Aybak, well known as the architect of a range of five-star hotel projects in Türkiye and also the architect of the main building of this Kempinski hotel in Selcuk style, has done an impressive work to create these new building highlights. At a size of 90 sq m, the new Lagoon Suites offer luxurious comfort and peace allowing guests a completely private stay away from the main building.

With direct access to the Lagoon Pool from each terrace, beautiful golf course views and green surroundings as well as stylish wooden architecture, these villa style accommodations can be easily reached over a wooden bridge from the hotel lobby. The Lagoon Suites feature a bedroom, living room, powder and dressing room, large bathroom and a private deck with loungers so guests can enjoy nature in blissful surroundings. Interior designer Tre Tasarim has chosen warm colour schemes like stone grey, wooden brown and orange to create a serene and contemporary ambiance for golf and leisure travellers, couples or small families alike. 

Golf enthusiasts will certainly be thrilled by the 12 new Lagoon Golf Suites as they are incorporated into the grounds of the golf course. Away from the main building and near the villas, these Lagoon Suites also offer guests spacious and comfortable accommodation with a high level of privacy and the feeling of an exclusive retreat. 

Additionally, all other guest rooms and suites at Kempinski Hotel The Dome, have been meticulously renovated to offer an exceptional guest experience for all guests. 
Among the culinary hotspots at the property the new restaurant, Seljuk, offers a mix of world-class cuisine and impeccable service in an unrivalled, serene location. At Seljukthe day starts with a scrumptious breakfast buffet showcasing locally sourced produce and ingredients.  From freshly baked croissants and pastries, authentic Bircher muesli, freshly squeezed juices and power shots to local specialties that include Aegean olives, Turkish Simit (bagels), Turkish cheese, homemade yogurt and freshly baked Turkish Gözleme (pastries) as well as Healthy Turkish Soup.

At lunch, Executive Chef Adnan and his brigade continue to amaze guests with a live interactive buffet of Traditional Turkish, European and Levantine specialities, including pizza, pasta, steaks, grills and a fresh seafood catch of the day. With its colourful light green and beige color scheme, glass décor elements in turquoise and blue with gold Selcuk patterns, guests can enjoy a relaxed setting overlooking the hotel’s gardens with easy access to the main pool, the beach and the kid’s club.

Copper, gold, off-white and beige are the colours creating a warm and elegant atmosphere at restaurant Lale, the place to be for a dinner with indoor and outdoor seating and nightly live entertainment. Themed buffets with various live sections encourage guests’ interactions with the chefs while an open kitchen allows for the showcasing of their culinary expertise.

Locally sourced ingredients, a fresh selection of fish, ethnic and authentic cuisine with flavours from around the world, in addition to an extensive wine and champagne selection and a dedicated kid’s corner for the little ones, make Lale the ideal evening spot to round off an exciting day.
