Turkey Dinner
Bailliage of Antalya
Belek, May 12, 2018
The selected ones at the selected one!
" Dining at Selectum was another outstanding experience for our members and their guests "

“Selectum”, the timeless Latin word for “the selected one”, is given to maybe the hippest establishment in Belek.

The owners of this boutique-styled hotel have a passionate vision that draws inspiration from the renowned beauties of ancient times. Their desire is to bring Turkish hospitality from a classical perspective into the present paying homage to the legendary figures of antiquity.

Champagne, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were served on the terrace whilst we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The colourful menu created by Chef Bülent Yildiz was then presented.
