A sneak peak at Sensatori Resort Turkey

They say good things come to those who wait and, having done the rounds of the site and seen the builders in action, I’d say that’s certainly true for guests booked in for a holiday at Sensatori Resort Turkey this summer. The first foundations of this brand-new property were laid last March, and the good news is, everything’s set to be done and dusted in time for the grand opening on the 2nd of May. Here’s how things are looking with less than 3 months to go…

Location, location, location

There’s no doubt about it, Sensatori Resort Turkey makes a great first impression – even in its work-in-progress state. After making the hour’s drive from Antalya Airport, we meandered off the main road and experienced a complete change of scene. Gone were the shops and petrol stations, and in their place stood the towering trees of Sorgun Forest. The hotel itself is sandwiched between the 300-hectare forest and the Mediterranean Sea, and the views are as incredible as you’d expect. It’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors, too – there are gardens to the front of the property, plus you’ve got direct access to the beach.

Make room

There was plenty of ooh-ing and ahh-ing when I stepped into the Sensatori Resort Turkey showroom, as well. True to Sensatori form, it looks something out of an interiors magazine. Lampshades hang from the ceiling, fragmented mirrors jazz up the walls, and – in the adults’ section of the hotel – the deconstructed bathroom features a large sink that takes centre stage in the hallway. Take a look for yourself…

It’s not a case of style over substance, either. All the rooms at Sensatori Resort Turkey will come with the usual suspects – air-conditioning, balconies and the like – as well as nice-to-haves like iPod docking stations and flatscreen TVs. Want to go one step further? You can also upgrade to a whirlpool or swim-up room, or a suite with a private pool.

Behind the scenes

The wheels are in motion behind the scenes, too. The hotel’s general manager has been put in place, and he’s hard at work recruiting his team. The executive chef has also been hired, and he’s busy creating Sensatori-standard menus as we speak. They’ll take pride of place in 6 restaurants, which range from an authentic Turkish eatery to a beachfront BBQ house, where you can enjoy steaks and burgers just metres from the waves. Not to be left out, the resident show team are already being put through their paces, rehearsing for the West End-style shows Sensatori is known for.

Making a splash

Lots of you have been asking about the hotel’s splash park, and I’m happy to report it’s coming along nicely. The finished product will feature a shallow pool (about 60 centimetres deep), which will be accessorised with some fun play items for little ones. There’ll be a water shower and a water curtain, perfect for games of tag or hide-and-seek. Add a miniature slide and a pint-sized pirate ship into the mix, and you’ve got hours of fun for youngsters.

That’s it from me for now. Hopefully you’ve all a good idea of what you can look forward to at Sensatori Resort Turkey. All that’s left to say is, let the countdown begin!

      Hello Margaret, The Air Passenger Duty (APD) will automatically be refunded in due time, providing you are eligible. It’s taking a lot longer than we expected to refund due to the amount of refunds that need to be processed. If the balance is outstanding then this will automatically be deducted. If the balance has been paid then a cheque will be issued with the relevant refund amount. ^Daniel

    You clearly are not adhering to the following statement on your blog “and all the adjustments for bookings not paid in full will be made by the end of February.” It is now the end of April and our outstanding balance is due in one week but has not been adjusted. Having just spoken to your call centre in India, with all its inherent communications problems. I gather that it may be corrected in time or I have to pay more than I should and hope for a refund at a later date. I know its only £13 per child under 12 years, but why is it so difficult when to correct when you can put your website prices up and down virtually instantly? A cynic might think that you are being deliberately awkward. Maybe time to look at another ITC for 2016.

      Hello Karl, We do apologise for the delay in the refund process of the Air Passenger Duty (APD). We do have a dedicated team who are working through these as a priority. I’ll get the details fed back to my Web Team to look into updating the website. ^Daniel

    I have 2 package holidays booked with Thomsons in 2015 and 1 flight only. None of these journeys includes children.
    My question is will the APD refund apply to all those journeys for adults.

    Thank you
