Hi everyone! I’m Günsenin, hotelier, artist, designer and passionate advocate for Ölüdeniz. First of all I would like to thank all of you: my guests, my staff, my family and friends because without you I would not have brought home to Oludeniz Skål’s Tourism’s Oscar.
Yes, my dear parents played their part too and I thank them from my heart. It was as a result of my childhood summers spent on the picturesque beach at Ölüdeniz that I was later inspired to create Oyster Residences in the centre of this idyllic part of Turkey and now I want you all to have the chance to see and share it with me.
I have been all over this precious planet of ours and believe me when I say Ölüdeniz is a totally unique place: where else can you find a mountain like Babadağ with its incredible nature? And yet it towers right over our resort, providing opportunities for paragliding and walks. Within metres of Oyster Residences is the constantly changing azure and turquoise blue sea, our flawless horseshoe bay and the mysterious blue lagoon; an icon for our nation’s tourism.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is a little corner of paradise. Take the captivating beauty and add to it my eye for detail, artistic flair, imagination and desire for perfection and you have my creation, Oyster Residences: a small but perfect hotel surrounded by all this magnificence.
My staff are also like my family, as are each and every one of my guests. At Oyster Residences we make sure you have everything you need, from comfort, relaxation and tranquillity to beautiful fresh, locally sourced Mediterranean food. We are here to cater for your every need and I would like you all to have the chance to share with me some of the wonderful experiences Oludeniz has to offer.
Right on our doorstep we have some of the best paragliding in the world. When you are soaring through the air you can see the beautiful countryside and sea below. Walking the Lycian Way and the other trails you can become part of our natural world. Sailing or sea kayaking along our exquisite coastline you can maybe understand why I am so passionate about my country and why I have devoted so much of my life to making sure Oyster Residences and the surrounding environment is one of the best holiday experiences you’ll ever have and I, for one, want to keep it that way.
Being awarded the Skål Tourism Oscar has been one of the highlights of my professional life and I can say with complete sincerity that all of you are part of this remarkable winning team. Thank you.
