Check out our latest update ‘A sneak peak at Sensatori Resort Turkey’
We’re really excited about building Sensatori Turkey, the fifth addition to our Sensatori collection that’s set to open in. This brand new hotel will join our 4 existing Sensatori resorts – in Tenerife, Sharm El Sheikh, Crete and Mexico – and we’d like to invite you to join us behind the scenes as we follow its progress on the blog.
As the name suggests, Sensatori resorts – which are only from Thomson – have been designed to fuel your senses. After all, the more senses stirred, the more we enjoy an experience. But that’s only half the concept. The other half stems from the idea of ‘satori’ – a sudden feeling of enlightenment. And that’s how the word ‘Sensatori’ came about.
What will make Sensatori Turkey stand out?
The hotel itself will have all the hallmarks of a Sensatori property. Its real standout feature, though, is the location. The hotel will be right on the beach, and just footsteps from Sorgun Forest, which covers more than 300 hectares.
How will we build it?
With over 40 years of experience, we know what separates a good hotel from a great one. We also know the value of local knowledge, which is why we’ve enlisted the help of the Barut family to help us take Sensatori Turkey from drawing board to reality.
Barut have extensive experience of building hotels in Antalya and will be a real asset to the team. As our partner, Barut will be acting as the developer, employing local people for everything from engineering to labour and then buying materials separately. Even the architect is local. Thomson staff will be heavily involved to ensure the design follows all of the Sensatori guidelines.
What else is planned?
Sensatori Turkey will have a total of 297 rooms and be made up of three blocks, one of which is for families, and one that’s for the adults. Inside, we’re building a wide range of room options, from swim-up suites to rooms with private pools.
On the dining front, there’ll be 4 restaurants included in the All Inclusive package. You can take your pick from a buffet restaurant that serves dishes from around the world, a Turkish restaurant that brings you the best of the country’s national cuisine, a seafood restaurant and an Italian place that specialises in classics like pizza, pasta and risotto. If you want to pay a bit extra, there are 2 more options – a BBQ restaurant on the beach and a fine dining restaurant that’s perfect for extra-special occasions.
Elsewhere there’ll be 5 swimming pools to pick from, including one that’s just for adults and another that’s all geared up for families. And there’ll be plenty more to keep you entertained. We’ll be building a multipurpose sports court and gym, first-rate entertainment venues, and a Play House and multi-sensory nursery for children.
