TUI Magic Life takes over Turkish club in Belek

All Inclusive club brand returns to five strong portfolio in Turkey for the Summer season

TUI Group will take over the former Asteria Belek Club on the Turkish Riviera from Summer 2020. Through the acquisition of the resort, the leading tourism group will complement the portfolio of its All Inclusive club brand. “With the opening of TUI Magic Life Belek, we are meeting the strong demand for holidays in Turkey from TUI Magic Life guests,” says Andreas Pospiech, Managing Director TUI Magic Life. “This means, we will once again be able to offer five clubs in Turkey from the start of Summer 2020. The highlights of our new club are a recently expanded aqua park, extensive range of watersports and well-established, mature gardens.” This new club will replace TUI Magic Life Waterworld, which exited the portfolio this Winter.

The future TUI Magic Life Belek features village-style buildings with 594 rooms, spread across the vast gardens. Eight pools and an aqua park which is currently being expanded to offer ten slides as well as extensive watersports options will be available to guests. Moreover, the club is an ideal holiday resort for families thanks to numerous activities for kids & teens. Over the next few weeks, the resort will be converted for repositioning as a TUI Magic Life club. Its reopening is scheduled for the end of April 2020. The club will shortly be available for bookings. Existing Asteria Belek Club bookings will be honoured and guests will be informed about the new and expanded offering.
