The Gloria Serenity is the most impressive beach and golf hotel in Belek. What makes it the best? The styling and architecture are fascinating and very clever, the main building is built in a circle from which there are two wings.
The French, Aegean and Asian restaurants, the Serenity Spa, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, the lobby bar and the main restaurant are all accessible as you walk around the circle.
The hotel offers half board options which includes wines with your evening meals and you have the excellent buffets each evening, but most people take the all inclusive supplement, which gives you inclusive food and beverage and a very fine array of liquor and all snacks plus afternoon tea and cakes from the Patisserie are also included. Choose between Gordon's or Hendrick's gin, Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky, very good Turkish champagne, a great selection of cocktails, aperitifs and post dinner liqueurs also, Irish Coffee etc.Cointreau, Zambuca, etc.Email Us
During your weekly stay you are entitled to eat 3 times in the a la carte restaurants, during the winter months this includes the excellent French, the Aegean, which is a fusion of Greek and Turkish cuisine and the first class Asian option. In the mid April to October period you also have the option of dining by the riverbank on the way to the beach in the outdoor fish restaurant, a wonderful al fresco experience. Also in these high season months you can also dine al fresco in the French, Asian and Aegean outlets overlooking the Laguna Pools on the seaside side of the Serenity.Email Us
The buffet dining is however exceptional and there are 4 to 6 different dining rooms you can sit in, giving you different ambiences each time, including a lovely outdoor area which is sheltered and takes advantage of large barbecues which include some fine meat and fish selections. In the Summer and Spring months you can enjoy from 12 noon to 4 pm the Italian or the Steakhouse Route 66 al fresco restaurants, which are equally impressive, this eases the pressure on the restaurants in the evenings. The themed evening buffets offer a wonderful array of international cuisine, giving plenty of variety every night.Email Us
The service in the hotel is the best in Belek and the staff are the best trained, professional and friendly in the region, which adds that extra dimension not apparent in most other 5 star properties. The Spa at the Serenity is a major highlight and they have a very highly skilled team of masseuses from all over the world including places as far away as Bali. The treatment rooms are all sumptuous and atmospheric and some treatments are done outside, in the garden areas. The indoor pool and hammams, saunas and steam rooms are all of the highest specification and adjacent to the Spa.
The staff in the lobby bar are exceptional, where the waitresses are very attentive and always on hand to ask you for another drink, no need to queue up at the bar, it is all table service. Charming and friendly staff in all areas, even the chamber maids wear a smile.
As far as entertainment is concerned Gloria Serenity wins hands down in this department, the impressive amphitheatre, which is very adjacent to the main building hosts nightly shows which can be very wide ranging from Dancing on Ice, to full musical shows to Chinese Acrobats, to name a few examples. Three are also extra ultra cool evening like at the G Beach venue, when live music takes over, or very cool party nights under the stars with great music, dancing and free bars for all inclusive guests. There are impromptu jamming sessions, themed evenings and at all times a great buzz on the resort.Email Us
The landscaping of the resort is a major asset at Gloria Serenity, the gardens are simply gorgeous, filled with pine trees and other species and a wide selection of flowering shrubs and plants which all add up to an oasis of greenery and colour throughout the year.Email Us
The accommodation at Gloria Serenity is superb, the standard superior rooms are in 2 buildings which have superior garden view, sea facing or Laguna rooms, which are on the ground floor and have patios with very comfortable sun beds overlooking the Laguna pools, you can literally just walk out into the water for a morning swim. The superior rooms are 40 square metres with bathrooms that have jacuzzi baths and walk in showers, king size double or twin rooms and plenty of cupboard space with wooden floors which lead out to the ample balconies which overlook gardens, the Laguna pools and or the sea beyond over the line of pine and cypress trees. The 3 room categories in the main building are all the same size, it is just the balconies are different, the Laguna rooms having ground floor and sun beds rather than chairs. We would highly recommend paying a little more for sea facing or Laguna doubles, they are worth the modest supplement. The corner rooms in the main buildings are called Serenity Suites and have massive balconies with a hot tub, one bedroom suites, with a separate lounge to the bedroom. Ideal for 2 adults and a child!Email Us
The upgraded rooms outside the main 2 buildings are villas, there are 2 bedroom garden villas, 2 bedroom pool villas and 2 and 3 bedroom de luxe villas. The garden villas are the cheapest option and are very secluded in a quiet area with pine trees and gardens being the view from the patios, all of which have outside hot tubs and large patios. The garden villas have a twin bed downstairs, with private bathroom and communal lounge, with upstairs a king size double bed and larger bathroom for adults.
The Pool Villas are stunning as they all overlook the Laguna pools giving you direct access to the pool from your patio, they all have hot tubs and are exactly the same set up as the Garden Villas, the Pool Villas are closer to the main hotel facilities than the garden villas, many clients staying in e villas hire bicycles from guest relations as there are super paths around the Resort.
The De Luxe Villas are situated on the edge of the Gloria Old Golf Course and are 3 bedroom with 2 twin rooms and a double room upstairs. The main difference is that they overlook the Old Golf Course and have private pools and hot tubs outside.Email Us
There are 45 great holes of golf at Gloria including two eighteens on the Old and New, whilst the Verde nine is almost just as enjoyable and impressive and nice to play for a change. All holes are laid out through a forest of umbrella pine trees, some holes are tighter than other – the Old being the most testing. The practice ground which lies between the Old and New Course is the most impressive in Belek and underwent a major renovation during 2015.Email Us
The Gloria New Course is the best of the two main 18 hole courses at Gloria, wide fairways flanked by pine trees, 5 excellent par 3s and 5 superb par 5s, some of which are designed as double dog legs, the par 4s are a mix of long and short holes with a risk and reward combination. The course has some great water hazards and mature trees and lovely manicured tees and fairways, making it a very fine and attractive golf course, never over difficult and an absolute joy to play. Holes 9 and 18 are great par fives to complete each nine.Email Us
The Old Course is much tighter and plays 3 shots tougher than the New Course, very tight tee shots, the first hole sets the standard, a great 3 shotter, with a very narrow driving area and a second or third shot over water.
The second hole is a par 3 all carry over water. The course is simply relentless in that the tee shots are so tough on many holes. The Old Course enjoyed some superb modifications including new greens on two of the par 5 holes including 9 and 17 in 2015 which has made a difference, whilst the course has become even better than 2015.
he Old Course has water on as many as 13 holes, mostly very much in play.
