TURKEY Holidays with a purpose are an increasingly popular trend among incentive and leisure travellers alike. These are exactly the customers, which the Hillside Beach Club Fethiye in Turkey's Aegean region aims to cater to with its new range of complimentary Learning in Luxury programme.
In weekly cooking classes at Pasha on the Bay restaurant-bar, guests will learn how to make delectable Turkish specialities, while a cocktail workshop on Serenity Beach will teach budding mixologists to make a number of the resort's signature cocktails.
For something out of the ordinary, youngsters, who want to get in touch with their inner DJ, can try their hand on the deck of the Pasha Night Club. Would be stargazers can sign up with the in-house astronomist to delve into one of the world's oldest sciences, and the Yoga for Mothers & Daughters course provides some precious family bonding time.
Thrill-seekers will be spoiled for choice in aqua sports such as water-skiing, wakeboarding, mono-skiing, sky-skiing, knee-boarding and sailing, with professional instructors standing by to mentor. Motorised water activities are also available, but will incur added costs.
Diving opportunities are vast. These include beginners' modules up to experienced divers' programmes such as wreck dives, refresher courses and dive master training, and offer the chance to acquire SSI, PADI or CMAS certificates.
Easily accessible from Dalman Airport, the five-star Hillside Beach Club Fethiye has rates starting from US$105 per night, per person, twin share on a full board basis.
