Hilton Hotels and Gocay Tourism, Management, Investment, Transportation & Trade are planning to open a Hilton Worldwide Resort in Dalaman, on Turkey’s south-west coast, under a new franchise agreement. With its opening scheduled for mid-2009, the Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa will be Hilton’s first resort property in Turkey.

Wolfgang M. Neumann, the president of Hilton Hotels, Europe, was enthusiastic about the new property: “Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa is a fantastic new signing for us. Over the past 50 years we have built a significant Hilton presence in Turkey so we are delighted to be adding our first dedicated resort property to the portfolio. It comes at an exciting time for our growth of Hilton’s family of hotel brands in Turkey as we look to triple our presence in this strategic market over the next five years.”

Neumann added: “With Dalaman’s popularity as a tourist resort on the rise it is considered to be one of Turkey’s emerging tourism hotspots as a leisure and golf destination. Despite this there is a real lack of top quality, internationally branded hotels, so we believe there is a great opportunity for Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa to cater for the demand from both international and domestic travellers alike.”

The new resort will situated on Sarigerme beach, and comprise 384 well-appointed guest accommodations, of which 52 will be spacious suites.
