When you step inside a CLC World Travel Centre, the first decision won’t be if you should go on holiday with one of Europe’s leading resort developers, but rather where? While the sunny coast of CLC’s resorts on Spain’s Costa del Sol or the island beauty of Tenerife are a constant temptation, there’s another more exotic destination that ticks all the boxes, especially if you are looking for a break that offers world-class golfing facilities, spa treatments and much more. On Turkey’s sparkling Aegean coast, CLC Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort is a destination where you can be as active or as relaxed as you please.
A green paradise
Surrounded by verdant nature in the hills behind Kusadasi with a sparkling ocean vista for company, keen golfers will love being able to tee off for a round on the 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course, no matter their handicap. Set 270m above sea level, the view from the fairway over Kusadasi Bay is distractingly spectacular. While you’re here, why not brush up on your skills with a lesson from a certified PGA Professional from the Kusadasi Golf Academy?
The beauty of Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort is that, away from the fairway, every vacation need has been taken care of, leaving the important business of relaxation up to you. Admire panoramic ocean views of the Aegean Sea, enjoy spacious and comfortable air-conditioned apartments, sample an array of on-resort dining choices, and find an activity to please guests of all ages at CLC World Turkey: from a supervised kids’ club for ages 4-12, to an on-site entertainment team, fully-equipped gym and sports such as tennis, volleyball, archery and mini-golf. It’s a destination where you don’t feel the need to leave the resort, where the only decision to make is which of the 11 outdoor pools to go for a swim in or which book to take to your sun lounger.
A luxury touch
No visit to Turkey is complete without a Turkish bath experience and fortunately, guests at Kusadasi Golf & Spa Resort don’t have to venture off-resort for an authentic experience. Along with traditional Turkish bath treatments undertaken in soothing marble surrounds, the resort’s beauty and spa professionals also offer Balinese massage and therapies such as shiatsu and reiki.
A rich history and culture on your doorstep
But for those times when you want to head off-resort, what cultural and historical discoveries await? Kusadasi is one of Turkey’s most beloved seaside towns with vibrant markets and atmospheric restaurants and bars. Take a step back in time as you admire the traditional sailing gulets docked in the marina, and perhaps even catch the morning ferry across to the pretty Greek Island of Samos for a day? The majestic ruins of Ephesus are just a 35-kilometre drive from the resort, where you’ll be dazzled by the wonders of ancient Greek civilisation.
Of course, a visit to Kusadasi isn’t complete without wriggling your toes in the soft, white sands of its famous beaches and from CLC World’s Aegean Coast resort a free shuttle bus runs to the perfect sandy stretch of beach at Sogucak, 8 kilometres away, where your complimentary sun lounger awaits. It’s all part of the service that means travelling to CLC World Turkey provides you and your family with everything you need to relax, recharge and spend time together.
