Tourism

Limak has entered the tourism sector in 1995 with Limak Arcadia. Acting on the principle of being a pioneer and leader in every sector of operation, the investments have been continued and Limak Limra has been taken into service at Antalya Kemer in 1998, and Limak Atlantis at Antalya Belek in 2002.

In 2000, the Limak International Hotels & Resort brand has been created and the “Warm Hospitality & Excellent Service” slogan has been registered as the brand commitment. Limak Ambassadore has been the first step into urban hotel management in 2006, while Limak Lara has been presented to the country tourism at Antalya Lara in the same year. In 2010, the first thermal boutique hotel of Turkey, Limak Yalova Thermal has been taken into service. Limak Eurasia Hotel, the newest link in the Tourism Group, has started to serve at Istanbul Kavacık in 2011.

As of today, the Group has a capacity of 5,000 beds. Services are offered throughout the year at the facilities and occupancy ratios over 80 percent are maintained consistently. Limak Tourism Group hosts guests from almost 40 different countries around the world, as well as its domestic guests.

Limak Tourism Group is currently continuing its investments with the Limak Cyprus Deluxe Hotel, being constructed in the Bafra region of Cyprus. While alternative tourism varieties such as congress, golf, wellness and sports tourism have been added to the traditional sea, sand, sun tourism; operations are continued over a broad range, from urban hotels to resorts, from wellness to airport hotel operations.

The Limak Tourism Group, advancing with the goal of evolving into an international chain, continues its activities for hotel investments in different geographies. As different from the other hotel chains, the group realizes the establishment, construction and management its hotels within its own organization from “a to z”, and accomplishes significant savings in the investment and cost areas by its experience in construction.

The system built in the supply chain allows the ability to use scale economy effectively. The Group also trains the staff of its new hotels, and thus ensures high standards in service quality and constantly develops its human resources.

Since diversity is one of the important factors in the development of tourism, services aimed for the sector are continually improved in order to benefit from the opportunities offered by sports tourism.

A difference is created by sports tourism, which is one of the most important segments of alternative tourism, and groups are hosted in a variety of sports contests, as well as football.

Our country’s potential in sports tourism is quite high. Every year 1,200 football teams come to camp in Antalya only. Last year, 350 football teams and almost 18 thousand athletes in total have lodged at the Limak hotels. Other than these, our hotels have hosted basketball, volleyball, judo, tennis, rugby, softball, baseball and many other sports tournaments, national team try-outs and national team preparations.

A tree planting organization is being held every year since 2011, on behalf of the Limra, Arcadia, Atlantis hotels and holiday villages and the Lara De Luxe Hotel in Antalya. Limak, planting trees for the guests coming to its hotels every year at a land of 100 acres in Antalya, Serik district allocated by the Ministry of Forestry, has added 10 thousand more black cedar and nut pine trees to the Memorial Forest in 2017. Other than Antalya, the 500 trees promised to the guests during the opening of the Limak Tourism Group’s Limak Eurasia Luxury Hotel at Istanbul Kavacık have also been planted with a ceremony. the objective is to plant 100 thousand trees in 10 years in the Memorial Forest Project.

On the other hand, the tradition of presenting plant seeds to the guests staying at the Limak Tourism Group Hotels, which they can grow at their homes, balconies, gardens, has also been continued in 2017. The seed sets include 14 varieties as sunflower, fennel, hibiscus, cosmos, redbud, echinacea, coriander, sage, anise, thyme, melissa, eucalyptus, basil and black pine.

Limak Tourism Group is conducting the ‘Bedside Books Project’ in order to introduce certain outstanding names from the Anatolian soils especially to the guests coming from abroad. Within the project scope, Mevlana, Karagöz-Hacivat and Dede Korkut stories are provided in booklets. In addition, booklets that contain messages of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk from his Nutuk are also presented to the guests.

Limak Tourism Group, crowning its achievements with awards received in 2017, just like every year, aims to evaluate 2018 as a year when it will maintain its sustainable growth and reach closer to its goal of becoming an international hotel chain.
