On a beautiful early Sunday morning, at 7 am to be specific, 30 instagramers found their way to Beirut Intl Airport and the adventure began!Ok now that sounded like a fairy tale, but wait it was!
A sweet invitation from Nakhal to spend a day yes a day not in Lebanon, nope in Antalya!
How is that even possible?! I tell you how, Nakhal has been a leader in the tourism since 1959, catering the packages to all need and likes.
With their charter, Wings Of Lebanon they run direct flights to many destinations including Greece, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Egypt, Turkey… All the details are available on their website, and you can book a flight only without buying a whole package.
Back to our flight, at 9:30 am the journey started, and I was pleasantly surprised of the quality of the service, it all starts with the check in, as well as the on board service. A team that was trained to make you comfortable in your flight, even if it was for one hour and half.
We arrived to Antalya’s airport around 11 am, after security check, a bus was waiting for us to take us to our destination. Nakhal are the exclusive agents of The land of legends inside the Rixos premium.
In less than 30 minutes, our bus stopped in front of a majestic location. A roman theme inspiring the decoration, live entertainment welcoming us, as well as a huuuuge sweets table right at the center which is the dream of any child and adult too! Did I mention the different mirrors and the big sanp effect selfie camera!
It was time to catch the brunch buffet before 1 pm so we head down to an enormous area that has options to please all tastes.
Live cooking stations, salads bars, cold cuts, cheeses, cooked meals, turkish specialities and much more! Let the photos do the work!
The Hotel is decorated in a way to attract and please the younger generations as it is a family destination too.
Time to lay the bags in the rooms, I particularly loved the bright colors, the space, the small balcony and bathroom!
A quick change, and let the water games begin.
Land of legends is the perfect address for the water fans, with its slides, relaxed pools for kids and for adults, as well as the dolphins, sea-mores and whales shows, they are catering all tastes.
Not to forget the different food kiosks distributed in every corner, the souvenir shops and much more.
As for shopping, Rixos has also a huge mall with high-end as well as more affordable brands, what more can you wish for! A beautiful location indeed.
After the long day, we ended the day at Al abir restaurant which ranks as one of the best Lebanese restaurants.
Again the same level of attention and service, a table to please the eye and the stomach. The lebanese mezze done to perfection from the regular staples to new plates with twists such as their take on fatte with cauliflower as well as adding eggplants to fatoush.
The grilled meat and taouk were top and we ended it with a an ice cream osmalleyi before rushing out to catch our bus to airport.
Back on board were we ended the day just like it started in a fun way, just watch our video!
A smooth flight back was the perfect end, so next time you feel like a vacation even for a day, just check with Nakhal and leave it to them for a perfect service guaranteed!
