OBERURSEL, Germany, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The SENTIDO Perissia hotel, located in the Turkish holiday region of Side, is to offer products from its own farm. Guests who visit any of the six restaurants of the hotel are spoiled for choice with aromatic home-grown olives, tomatoes, grapes and figs as well as freshly-harvested pistachios and peanuts all on offer among other fresh produce.
Ahmet Turgan, General Manager of the five-star hotel said: "On our 500 hectare farm we harvest organic apples and organic vegetables, we press our own olive oil and we produce wine from our organic grapes. All this effort is worth it because good catering is an important holiday decision-factor for many guests. 37 per cent of our guests are regular visitors.
"Fruit, vegetables, olives, olive oil, bread, jam and nuts are served with organic quality and without additives directly from the farm. Our cooks prepare many of the dishes directly in front of the guests."
The beach hotel in Turkey and the farm benefit from their location on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. The Turkish Riviera is known as the country's garden. The slopes of the Taurus mountains ensure an ideal climate. Fruit, vegetables and cereals grow particularly well on the fertile plains of the Mediterranean region. The farm of the hotelier's family is worked by 60 staff. Olive trees and grapevines grow on an area of 250 hectares, while the fruit trees and vegetable gardens cover the remaining 250 hectares. The olive oil and the wine is pressed and produced directly at the site. About 60 per cent of the wine offered in the hotel comes from its vineyard.
The five-star SENTIDO Perissia lies directly on a long sandy beach and is 3km away from the historic centre of Side. Guests can select from one buffet restaurant and five a-la-carte restaurants specialising in fish dishes, barbecue food, Turkish, Italian and Chinese dishes. Five bars, a Turkish cafe and three pools ensure a perfect holiday. Visitors can relax in the newly-renovated wellness centre, with sauna and Turkish bath. Sports enthusiasts can choose various water sports, tennis, volleyball and basketball as well as aerobics and pool gymnastics. For children, the hotel offers a children's club with an outdoor play area, activities, cinema and a separate children's swimming pool. The SENTIDO Perissia has 352 rooms that are fitted with marble floors, satellite TV, coffee- and tea-making facilities, mini-bar and air conditioning.
