Dear Guests, Business Partners and Colleagues,

Elit Turizm Yatırım A.Ş. has been devoted to taking firm steps by making decisions from a continually entrepreneurial and innovative attitude to meet the expectations of our guests since joining the industry by opening our first hotel in Van in 1976. At the ten hotels operating under the Elite World Hotels & Resorts brand, five of which are in Istanbul, we are dedicated to providing our guests with the best service and excellent quality. To ensure that our business and leisure guests have a relaxing and rejuvenating stay, we offer services with our exclusive brands accompanied with tasteful and exquisite restaurants. Our hotels serve as centers in the area they are located, where people can enjoy such privileged services with Elite World Hotels & Resorts excellence.

We provide our guests with convenient access to shopping, meeting, congress, culture and art centers thanks to the central locations of our hotels in Istanbul. In addition, our guest-focused service philosophy offers a fresh take on the idea of urban lodging.

With our most recent hotel venture, Elite World Grand Sapanca, we developed a unique concept that upholds the ideals of better living. We provide our visitors with a getaway from the city where they can reconnect with nature while enjoying our SPA services and unique natural surroundings.

While Elite World Van welcomes both business travelers and tourists by delivering a tasteful fusion of neoclassic architecture and palace architecture, Elite World Marmaris aspires to please our local and foreign guests seeking a retreat by the sea.

By fully complying with the standards of modern entrepreneurship and hospitality and in line with our Social Responsibility and Environment policies, we carry on the spirit of Turkish hospitality with our superior quality focusing mainly on customer satisfaction and invite guests within our country and from all around the world to experience this unique culture.

Over the years, we have continued to grow while also contributing to the development of our tourism sector in accordance with the targets and interests of our nation. We set a precedent for our industry by becoming the first hotel brand to participate in the TURQUALITY Brand Support Program run by the Turkish Ministry of Commerce with the intention of fostering Turkish brands with international aspirations. With our brand Elite World Hotels & Resorts, we are firmly moving in the direction of becoming an international hotel chain. In order to retain our service quality and track record and elevate our Elite World Hotels & Resorts brand, we will thus continue to broaden our service offering over the next five years by expanding our investments. Our goal is to be the best international hotel chain in Turkey, as well as a large, happy family with our guests, business partners and employees... We will move forward and raise the bar even higher by ensuring customer satisfaction thanks to the strength of our business partners and the support of our personnel. In order to contribute to the future growth of our nation and the tourism sector, we will continue to do our part, increase our investments and create employment opportunities.
