Hilton golf resort to boost Dalaman property market


The Hilton Hotel Corporation has announced a €100 million franchise agreement which will see the creation of an up-market golf and spa resort near Dalaman, a rapidly developing tourist area on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. The 384-room Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa, located on the Blue Flag-awarded beach at Sarigerme, will open at the end of 2009 and boast its own spa complex and 18-hole golf course.
“This announcement will be a major boost for the property market in Dalaman, with the area’s developing tourism infrastructure, including this international golf resort, having a very positive affect on local demand and property values,” says Dominic Whiting, editor of the Buying in Turkey guide, www.buyingin.co.uk
High-quality apartments actually overlooking the golf course and beach are currently available for £95,000; villas from £135,000. These values are expected to rise significantly as the Hilton resort comes online next year, with Dalaman also boasting easy access from the UK via a growing number of charter flights to its recently expanded airport, which is now the country’s third largest.
According to Hilton, the golf and spa project in Dalaman, which is the company’s first resort in the country, marks the beginning of a period of expansion in Turkey, which has one of the world’s fastest growing tourist industries with over 24 million visitors expected by Turkish officials this year.
˝We plan to increase our investments threefold in this strategic market with in five years, and this investment is extremely exciting for our company, ˝says Wolfgang Neumann, president of Hilton Hotels Europe.
