The Hotel Missoni is Hungry for Turkey, Opening a Hotel in 2013
Edinburgh...Kuwait...Oman...Brazil. The list of current and under-construction Missoni Hotels is an exotic one, and today we can add another city to the list: Antalya, Turkey. 2013 will bring a Missoni Hotel to the Turkish Riviera, and although this one will follow the pattern of the other Missoni by having the interior personally designed by Rosita Missoni, its exterior will differ greatly. It's going to have a celebrity-designed golf course!
Hotel MIssoni Belek, Antalya is bringing in Swedish golf champ Annika Sörenstam to create the 18-hole course, which will be just one of the attraction in the development around the hotel; there'll also be a country club, shops, residential villas and an olive grove. That last bit sounds much closer to Missoni's Italian heritage than gray days in Edinburgh.
All in all, the hotel has 138 rooms planned, 110 guest rooms and 28 villa-suites. All will feature Missoni’s "dazzling design and colour scheme." Yippee! If you've read our review (and photo gallery!) of the two nights we spent at the Hotel MIssoni Edinburgh, you can probably tell that we're big fans of the brand and have high hopes for the chain of fashion hotels.
