Hotels in Serik, Turkey - your base to discover the city.
Belek HotelsBelek is a small township set on the southeast coast of Turkey, boasting year-round balmy weather and a blend of modern luxury and ancient heritage. Although a buzzing tourist hotspot - with soft green golf courses and palm-lined boulevards of designer boutiques - Belek has a thriving local culture, evident in its magical multi-coloured mosques and ancient Greco-Roman ruins. Belek also benefits from being surrounded by vast swathes of verdant greenery and rocky hills, speckled with waterfalls and rare wildlife.Things to seeStart your bountiful sun-kissed Belek morning by visiting the nearby Aspendos theatre. This ancient amphitheatre is the last remaining ruins of the once great city Aspendos, a Grecian settlement steeped in myth and legend. The perfectly preserved amphitheatre showcases thousands of white-stone seats and columns, and is capped by a still-standing Basilica. Belek encourages the continued use of Aspendos, using it for live ballet, operatic and theatrical performances. After, spend your afternoon exploring the Kursunlu Waterfall Nature Park, which echoes with the melodious songs of over 100 species of bird. Walk through the meandering, flower-rich footpaths, through dense bright-green forestry, and discover the crashing waterfall. Settle down for a picnic beneath the shade of a pine, and watch the sunlight project rainbow patterns across the waterfall. After, wander back to Belek, visit its central silver-coloured mosque, and lay down on the soft white sands of Belek beach.Hotels in BelekAs one of Turkey’s most affluent up-and-coming resort areas, there are many stellar 4 and 5-star Belek hotels.
