About Us

Turkey's best mountain resort, Grand Kartal Hotel in Kartalkaya goes beyond guest expectations and provides excellent service quality with Spa concept. It isn’t that difficult to get rid of stress and get out of rush and crowded cities to relax in nature while minding your health and body. Gazelle Resort & Spa; which is located in an oak tree forest in Bolu, 2.5 hours from Istanbul and 1.5 hour from Ankara; awaits you.

The Only Green 5-Star Hotel in the Area

Story of that 300-year-old oak tree… Gazelle Resort & SPA is located in an oak tree forest. Not even one tree was cut during the construction. The project of the hotel was completely changed because of a 300-year-old oak tree in the middle of the project. Gazelle Resort & Spa is the area’s first and the only green five star hotel because of its sustainability rules and eco-friendliness.

Turkey’s Most Extensive Spa Hotel

Silva Spa is one of the most extensive Spa centers in Turkey and Europe. From classical Swedish massage to Balinese Massage, from Turkish bath to Russian sauna, from crystal sauna to hay therapy, from aromatherapy to rose sauna… Every therapy you can think of is waiting for you in 5000m² Silva Spa.
