This beachfront hotel comes with 4 swimming pools, 6 restaurants, and a stylish bar designed by Philip Treacy.
Sensatori Resort Turkey’s biggest selling point is its location. It’s right on a gold-sand beach, and just footsteps from Sorgun Forest, which covers more than 400 hectares.
You can choose from 4 swimming pools, and take your pick from activities like tennis, pilates and watersports. There’s just as much choice when it comes to dining. The hotel’s 6 restaurants showcase national dishes, gourmet cuisine, and everything in between.
Designer Philip Treacy was the brains behind the hotel’s Butterfly Bar. Here, you can sip a Sensatori Mystery – vodka, sparkling wine, cherry juice and strawberry – in a funky booth, while looking up at a rainbow of hanging baubles.Read more ››
The buffet restaurant serves up dishes from around the world for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Gentlemen are asked to wear smart shorts or long trousers, smart polo or tee shirts and closed shoes in the evenings.Highchairs are available.

We have stayed in a few Sensatori resorts as we are reassured to receive excellent service and facilities. The Barut Sorgun was no exception, we were impressed with quality of the staff and the attention to detail. The nursery and Play House was excellent however probably could do with more staff to accommodate the number of children as you have to book in advance to guarantee a place for the following day, however this is the only small issue. The food was lovely and fresh with an excellent variety of choice. Highly recommend!More
Spent the first week in April at the sensatori turkey. Great hotel, loved the layout keeping adults separate from families so the adult side was really peaceful. Fantastic meals at the restaurants and the buffet had a great selection too. Cocktails were one of the highlights and the butterfly bar was a great hideaway. Would definitely return :) More
First Thomson Senasatori Experience - Super value for money ...
Our son has stayed at the Sensatori twice in Egypt and sang its praises so we thought for our Easter family holiday this year with our 12 yr old daughter we would book the Sensatori Turkey hotel. Thumbs up - this is a hotel which are doing their utmost to ensure you have a great holiday, no matter what your individual needs are, they are doing their best to meet these. The hotel itself - one of the attractions for us was the variety of restaurants, all of a high standard. There are always Managers at service ensuring smooth running of their front of house staff and the attention to detail is fantastic. Junior Soux and Soux Chefs are also clearly visible at mealtimes constantly monitoring the food for guests, particularly in the Divan Restaurant. We loved the food, as mentioned this was an important reason for booking this hotel. The grounds around the hotel are beautiful and lead you to the beach. Beautiful Cabanas for your use if you wish or the comfortable sun beds. All the sun beds have Umbrellas which is terrific and robust tables attached. There are shops in situ. and generally the amenities are excellent. Thomson always have great trips organised if you wish to partake and the hotel Entertainment was super. Our room was lovely and the beds so comfortable with plenty pillows. We had a sea view room which had a double bed and then a sliding door into a twin bedded room for our daughter. Each room had a TV and again, attention to detail in the room and bathroom impressed us. I would finally like to mention the Spa inside the hotel, can I tell you it's amazingly good. The staff are wonderful and so want you to enjoy the experience you have there with them. For me particularly being post cancer the Spa offers Lymphatic Drainage Massage - I was thrilled - I indulged and had two! In Scotland, in my experience, even Health Spas like Stobo Castle and the Fairmont in St Andrews don't have trained staff who can offer this type of massage. I am lucky that I can go to Lumina in Bridge of Allan for these Lymphatic massages as they have staff trained in Iris method. It is however a 40 mile round trip. Big thanks and 10 out of 10 to Sensatori Turkey - your staff/team are a credit to you.
Room Tip: If you are travelling without children just double check you have a room in the area designated for...More

Lovely resort, fantastic staff !
We stayed here first week in April with our eldest daughter and husband and our youngest daughter (13) and her friend (15). We had a lovely week in a family swim up room which was a nice luxury. The facilities were very good and the overall look of the place is well kept and clean. The booking in for the restaurants was a bit of a pain and unless you got there just after midnight they were mostly full. A little gripe was the 20 euro per head surcharge for the ocean restaurant, we expected it in the swanky french inspired restaurant as the standard was extremely high. The food overall was excellent, though the buffet breakfast didn't do it for us, in the Mexico Sensatori you can choose breakfast service which is much more relaxed. There was also no bar service around the pools, which would be a plus. The cocktail bar is lovely and what we saw of the entertainment it was very good. Many thanks to the manager and staff of the Ocean restaurant, it was one of our party's birthday and they made it very special for her. Overall we had a lovely week.More

I visited here last week either my mum and my 7yr old daughter.
We had the perfect holiday.
Stunning hotel - reception is big but inviting, room was fab - we had a two room swim up.
Mini bar is restocked daily for free, wifi is free all over the hotel.
Food was great - lots of variety at high standard.
Beach was clean and just in front of hotel. This was practically empty for us as we were there at a quiet time but it's large so even at busier times I'm sure space wouldn't be an issue.
Ice creams and cakes available all day - totally recommend these!
There are separate areas for family's and adults only for people who want to avoid the noise - this includes the main restaurant too.
Staff were friendly and helpful, any issues (minor) were resolved instantly.
Thompson reps on had 8-8 which was excellent.
We will be returning!
