I don’t need to say much about the exceptional service level, facilities and overall offerings of Titanic Beach Resort Hotel, Antalya as reflected by the positive reviews posted here, which I concur personally. Instead, I wanted to provide a brief review focusing on the conference hotel features and unique level of service provided by the staff of Titanic Beach Resort Hotel to make our conference in mid October a success in spite of the bad weather in 3 days out of 4.
I was involved from the early on with the hotel selection in Turkey by the conference organizers. The managers of the hotel got personally involved starting from the initial contact till the last day of the conference, which is quite rare in five star hotels. Due to fragile economy across the world, total final number of registered participants was a big uncertainty for the conference organizers. The hotel management understood the constraints and offered some flexibility in making last minute adjustments without imposing severe penalties to the organizers.
Although there were few glitches at the beginning of the conference, thanks to the close attention of the managers and staff they were resolved immediately without any disruption to the conference or participants. So I would like to acknowledge and extend my appreciation to Mr. Erzaim and Ms. Cete for their keen attention and professional promptness in all matters.
Throughout our stay, the level of service extended to our conference and participants was beyond a typical five star hotel conference service. I am confident that majority of our participants would agree Titanic staff didn’t hesitate to go the extra mile in every aspect to make the conference organization a success and memorable one. All of the staff that I encountered appeared to enjoy their work and what they do, which I consider it as a significant accomplishment of the management style at Titanic Beach Resort Hotel.
The close proximity of the hotel to an international airport in Antalya (AYT) with direct flights from Europe and still being on the Mediterranean coast was a unique combination in addition to the exceptional conference facilities offered. Easy access to quality restaurants and food is one of the typical concerns in international conferences or when you are abroad. Especially when you are meeting with colleagues you haven’t seen for a while or with new colleagues you have met, deciding on where and how to go for lunch or dinner in another country is sometimes difficult unless you have a native with you. Titanic Hotel eliminated this problem by offering several very high quality diverse dining options within the hotel. The concern on where to eat was replaced with a new concern on how to resist tasting all the delicacies offered to avoid extra weight gain. One of the conference participant reported that he counted 29 different desserts for dinner service :) Based on the feedback I got, all of the participants greatly enjoyed both the famous Turkish cuisine and delicious samples from other cuisines around the world. The best part, it was all free of charge as this is an all-inclusive hotel (excluding the specialty theme restaurants, which required a nominal fee for reservation). A separate section in the main restaurant was always reserved for the conference participants during each meal, as table availability sometimes becomes a challenge in all-inclusive hotels especially when you have a big group.
In spite of the bad weather, on the last day we were able to see several historic sites namely, Perge, Side and Aspendos through a touristic tour organization arranged by the hotel. The tour operator with the assistance of hotel management offered the flexibility to postpone the tour due to weather conditions on the initially scheduled day. After this brief glimpse of sites, everybody wished we had more time to see all of the historic sites surrounding Antalya.
The Gala dinner organization with a professional belly dancer and live music arrangement was another remarkable social event of the conference.
As a Ph.D. level engineer/researcher, I had the opportunity to visit many five star hotels and resorts throughout the world including high profile hotels/resorts in Hawaii islands, North America and southern Europe while attending various international conferences and workshops. Without any reservation I can say this was the best conference hotel that I have ever stayed and enjoyed participating at a conference in a hotel.
I would strongly recommend it for conference organizations of all scope and scale as well as for vacation. I look forward to be back either through another conference opportunity or for holiday with my family.
