Set alongside a Mediterranean beach and backdropped by the forested Toros Mountains, LykiaWorld and GolfLinks Antalya combines access to historic and archeological sites with resort amenities in one of the most beautiful settings in Turkey. Its 18-hole championship link golf course—a Pete Dye design—opens November 2008 and becomes the first of its type in Turkey and the southern Mediterranean. But its the eight artificial grass courts the color of red clay that lure tennis players, along with a broad range of instructional programs and events for adults and juniors under the International Tennis Academy, which operates both here and at the sister property LykiaWorld Oludeniz. Otherwise, there is a broad, inviting private beach, three guest swimming pools, the Ayurveda and Wellness Centre—which offers traditional Turkish hamam, Ayurveda treatments, Pilates, and more—watersports, fitness classes, and more. There's also a well-run children's program, for those ages 3-12. Lodging consists of rooms and suites, some with private pools, while dining ranges over a variety of international cuisines—Turkish, Italian, Singaporean, steak—at the resort's seven restaurants.
