Golf's Quintessential luxury resort…

The Gloria Serenity Resort is a 5* luxury retreat surrounded by the picturesque and lush pine forest of Belek. With an abundance on offer from relaxation to energy, food to golf, this resort allows you to tailor your holiday experience in any way you wish. 

The Serenity offers an all inclusive board so you can enjoy the overwhelming food and drink on offer as you please. With eight different dining experiences, including various bars and even a Patisserie, you’ll get to enjoy a range of worldly dishes. From the indulgent Komnenos Steakhouse Restaurant to the worldly Sha Japanese Cuisine Restaurant, you’ll have almost too much to choose from. Or if you can’t decide and want to experience a local Turkish grill, pop over to Tetrasomia Main Restaurant where the hot coals are sure to cook up a storm. Then wash it all down while watching some live music, from Latin Dancers to Opera, all provided by the Serenity’s excellent entertainment team.

Between the five rounds spread over the seven nights, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to relax and unwind as you please with the abundance of facilities on offer at the Gloria Serenity Resort. You’ll also be able to relax along the 500 meter stretch of golden beach and take a dip in the dazzling turquoise sea. If you’re after something a little more active then there’s excellent sporting facilities on site, a gym and also a huge pool.

After breakfast, each day begins with golf instruction where your tour host will focus on a different element of you game. We use a Trackman swing analysis system which tracks your swing and ball flight via sonar so you can get detailed insights into your swing, helping you improve like never before. 

This tour will take in five rounds including the Gloria’s Old, New and Verde courses, not to mention Nobilis and arguably Turkeys best course Carya. To make this more fun your host will run a range of competitions between the groups, giving plenty of opportunity for all to compete with a final cocktail prize presentation taking place on the final evening.

I have been on quite a few winter golf trips with this group. They are superbly organised, at hotels with first class facilities and service. The golf courses are amazing and the camaraderie and fun is second to none. I have joined the trips with friends of mine, or by myself. The groups are always welcoming and I have made many friends with whom I maintain contact outside of the trips. The golf professionals create a unique atmosphere of excellent coaching skills with an air of casual enjoyment and laughs. It is always one of my favourite holidays of the year and I plan to go in again next year. I can't recommend it enough to travelling golfers who want more than just a golf experience. It's a complete package which will leave you wanting to come back for more.

Day to day...

22nd March
After arriving on the four hour flight into Antalya from Stansted, you’ll make the short transfer across Belek’s pine forests where the luxurious Gloria resort awaits. Sat on the Mediterranean coast with 500 meters of private golden beach the Gloria is a tranquil heaven, perfect for those who want to get away from it all.

After a late evening check in at the Gloria Serenity, those still full of energy, we’ll finish off the night with a few drinks in the Ella Fitzgerald Lobby Bar and Terrace.

23rd March
Start your day with breakfast served in the Tetrasomia restaurant overlooking the resorts beautiful gardens. After breakfast we will head to the resort Golf Academy where your host will hold a short game instruction, including Trackman which will help when it comes to getting out of all the bunkers and water that comes into play on the New Course.

Once confident you can splash the perfect bunker shot, we’ll head down to the first tee of the Gloria’s New Course for a team Texas Scramble competition. This is the second ‘championship’ course, par 72, 6,523m which undulates through the tree lined terrains, in a challenging and unforgettable but fair test of golf. Like many of the great courses, the final holes live up to the hype, especially the 17th which isn’t too dissimilar to another legendary 17th at Sawgrass with its own take on the island green. This lake comes into play on a few holes so in your Texas Scramble team just make sure one plays safely out of trouble as scorecards can easily dramatically turn around if you don’t give it respect.

After your round it’s time to relax with some post round drinks on the veranda overlooking the 18th before making our way back to the hotel for a bit of rest time before dinner. 

Before dinner we will meet in the lobby bar before making our way to enjoy the very finest of French, Italian, Asian, Aegean, Turkish and world cuisines at the stylishly presented Tetrasomia Restaurant.

24th March
After breakfast and golf instruction looking at fairway woods and drivers, it’s off for our first of two rounds at the Antalya Golf Club. This first round is at the Sultan course which has been designed around crystal clear lakes in a beautiful woody setting. With water featuring on more than half the holes, if your ball doesn’t get wet, then surely it will get sandy in one of the many tricky pot bunkers the course has to offer. Your score card will be tested around this risk and reward course which is topped off at the 18th named ‘Looking Back’, with water lining either side of the fairway, leaving little room for error before you plot your way onto the heavily bunker guarded green.

 

This evenings meal is a taste of magical Japanese cuisine amid the exotic atmosphere of Sha Japanese Restaurant.. After dinner the evening continues in to the Lobby Bar where the regular evening entertainment of live music keeps the day alive well into the night.

26th March

With a beautiful evenings round awaiting on the Carya you’ve got a relaxing morning and lunch to spend unwinding by the pool, or why not experience a treatment or two in the luxurious spa facilities.

After a relaxing morning by the pool or in the Spa, its off to one of Europes and arguably Turkeys finest course, the Carya. Just a stones throw from the Gloria and surrounded by Belek’s lush forest, the Carya is unlike any of the other courses in the area with its touches that will remind you of a top quality Berkshire course. Aptly named ‘long’ the Carya also hosts the longest hole in Turkey at the 621 yard 6th hole where even the very longest hitters won’t be reaching the green in two. The Carya truly is a beautiful course and a great test of golf, and regularly hosts tour pros and competitions as it holds up the flag for Turkish golf.

Tonights meal is at the resorts steakhouse restaurant, Komnenos. In a warm and relaxing atmosphere, you’ll exceptional dry-aged steak and red meat at its most delicious, which is sure to be a meal to remember.

25th March
After breakfast together you’ll have the opportunity to stay back at the hotel and enjoy some of the wonderful facilities on offer at the Gloria Serenity, or join the hosted tour as we experience the local town of Antalya. 

With the Serenity offering one of the best spa experiences in the whole of Turkey and a host of sporting options, not to mention an extra round of golf, you’ll have your work cut out deciding on what to do. For those who want to experience more of Turkeys culture you can join us as we head over to the local town of Antalya, know for its historical yacht filled marina. Antalya actually was once a Roman port and remains of its history are still reminiscent to this day.

In the evening we will meet in the Lobby Bar before experiencing the best of French cuisine on this side of the Mediterranean coast at the Le Jardin Au Printemps Restaurant. 

27h March
Before its time to workup a thirst on the corse, it’s time for something different down at the Patisserie where we’ll have the morning enjoying freshly baked pastries, not to mention cake, cookies and macaroons for anyone with a sweet tooth. 

After a relaxing morning, it’s off to our second course away from the Gloria resort at the Robinson Club Nobilis. This beautiful course sits at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, winding its way through the eucalyptus and pine forrest along Belek’s sandy coastline. It’s not a long course but there a few holes like the 9th and 16th where water dominates the landscape on the approach ton the green, making for an interesting time as you try and protect your stableford points score. 

After a freshen up it’s time for dinner, this time at the River Landing Fish Restaurant which is another of the Gloria’s amazing restaurants. You’ll experience a magnificent Mediterranean evening by the river with the most delicious seafood, crowning off your day beautifully.

28th March
After two rounds at The Gloria Golf Club on the Old and New course, its on to the final round at the third and final Verde Course. Who will hold their nerve as you’ll be split into two teams, competing in the ultimate Ryder Cup style battle. Before taking on the challenge todays golf instruction will focus on your short game and putting so you can make the most of the carpet like greens. After a great game, our two teams will soak it all up with post round drinks before we transfer back to the hotel.

After our final dinner at La Trattoria Romana Restaurant for some delicious Italian food before its time to congratulate all our players and winners throughout the weeks competition with a cocktail presentation evening.

29th February
After your final breakfast it’s a lazy day and opportunity to make use of the vast facilities that the Gloria Serenity has to offer. You can exchange your clubs for rackets at the tennis court, hit the gym, take it easy down at the pool and so much more. The Gloria Serenity resort isn’t the place where you’ll be wondering what to do, its the decision of what to choose. Hopefully now you’ll be itching to book a golf experience and we would love to welcome you on an Ike hosted tour soon.
