Barut Hotels, a hotel brand of 50 years in Turkish tourism industry

This April 2021 we were fortunate to be staying at one of the most iconic Urban Social concept hotels in Antalya – Akra Hotel. Akra is part of a larger hotel group called Barut Hotels which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.

Started in Side, Antalya in 1971, the journey of Barut Hotels continues with 13 hotels, over 3,500 employees and a bed capacity of 10 thousand today. Hundreds of awards received every year are the foremost proof of the commitment of the brand to hotel management.

Barut Hotels secured the rights of all of its employees in 2020, which it completed without compromising its philosophy of “Happy Staff – Happy Guests”, and succeeded to ensure the economic stability of its employees by applying several working models without downsizing the team, receiving great admiration of the industry. Continuing its latest investments in Didim, which has the most crystal clear water in the Aegean coasts, Barut Hotels will reach over 6 thousand employees by 2025. 

Coming to the forefront in gastronomy and art, Barut Hotels contributes to development of new identities for Mediterranean Region through the festivals it holds. With a unique identity in Turkish tourism industry and among the hotel management brands, Barut Hotels continues to carry out the projects that it has created for the benefit of the society and environment in 2021, in which it is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its incorporation, through the sponsorship of excavations at the Ancient City of Side, sponsorship of International Bicycle Race of Antalya, International Akra Jazz Festival, Classical Music concerts and workshops with contemporary artists. Participating in the 16th Runatolia Races held in Antalya in March, 50th-Year Running Team of Barut Hotels came in first place in the race by collecting the highest amount of donation, ensuring one-year scholarship needs of 10 students to be supplied.

Granted with 127 awards in 2019, Barut Hotels received most of these awards for hygiene, gastronomy and guest satisfaction. The brand has gathered the environmental projects that it has been carrying out for long years under a single roof by the We Care Environmental Awareness Project launched in 2019, and it wins the appreciation and affection of its guests for four nature books, plant and animal species under protection, and the cat houses built in suitable spots in the garden for animals in need of care. 

With a revisiting guest ratio of 35%, Barut Hotels hosts 3rd generation guests, who have been visiting for 40-50 years. With a constant development through its innovative approaches, the brand hosts guests of all ages with new products and services. 

The brand brought four of its hotels under its Collection concept in 2019 through Barut Collection, which reflects Barut luxury. The concept welcomes the guests with long service hours, more than 200 high-end drinks, rich A’la Carte restaurants and various privileges.

Offering its guests a number of deals such as early reservation opportunities in the 50th anniversary of its incorporation, Barut Hotels is referred to as an ecole in Turkish tourism industry. You can visit the website of Barut Hotels and check the hotels in Antalya, Lara, Kemer, Fethiye and Side to discover the privileged world of Barut Hotels and meet rich gastronomic variety, lush green gardens and performance of world-famous groups.
