Experienced hotelier Ahmet Antepli is looking forward to a new challenge after being appointed as general manager at the Kempinski Hotel The Dome, one of two five-star hotels at the PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club.
Antepli has vast knowledge of the luxury hotel sector having worked in a number of different positions across Turkey and the Middle East over the last 20 years for some of the industry’s biggest names, including DoubleTree by Hilton and Rocco Forte Hotels.
The 46-year-old took up his new role in Belek before Christmas – the second time that he has worked for the globally-renowned Kempinski brand – and is relishing the opportunity to further cement the Kempinski Hotel The Dome’s reputation for delivering outstanding customer service across key golf, family and business markets.
Antepli said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the team of not just one of the leading hotels in Turkey, but also one of the top golf resorts in Europe.
“The hotel is recognised for its ability to consistently deliver high levels of service, and to have been given this chance to play a leading role in enhancing its position in new and existing markets is a challenge that I’m looking forward to immensely.”
Situated just 25 minutes from Antalya, the Kempinski Hotel The Dome features 158 rooms and suites in the main building, as well as 18 villas situated directly among PGA National Turkey’s two 18-hole golf courses – the Pasha and PGA Sultan.
The hotel offers an array of outstanding sports, leisure and business facilities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, numerous watersports, meeting room and banquet facilities and a private beach and pier.
In addition, a luxury 3,600sqm spa – one of the biggest in Turkey – is also available, while guests can sample an array of different international culinary experiences at the resort’s variety of seven bars and restaurants.
Set in the heart of the Turkish golf riviera, PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club was the first golf resort in Turkey to feature 36 holes and has hosted numerous high-profile tournaments including the 2012 Turkish Airlines World Golf Final.
Alongside the Sirene Belek Hotel, the Kempinski Hotel The Dome is one of two five-star hotels at PGA National Turkey, with both offering access to a variety of five-star golf, sports and lifestyle experiences.
