Turkey Dinner

Bailliage Antalya, Turkey
Fehtiye, October 29, 2022

Workspace oasis visit
" It was a lovely weekend in an incredible hotel with wonderful people. What more can we wish for? "

Members and guests were invited to visit the new workspace oasis of our Bailli Nihat Tümkaya.

At the beautiful beach in Fehtiye (West of the Turquoise Coast) the new Liberty Fabay Hotel has the pleasure to be in the loving, guiding hands of our Bailli.

Despite being only a few hours from Antalya everyone decided to stay overnight. During overnight events and trips, we enjoyed each other’s company even longer experiencing the true bond of friendship.

Our Gala Dinner was on October 29th, a Turkish public holiday commemorating the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in 1923. Chaîne flags waved in the summer breeze with many Turkish Flags. It was extra special to enjoy on a festive day such a delightful dinner.

Dessert was served after an ode to the festive day whilst everyone sang. The service brigade changed their uniform to a Turkish flag shirt. They served a Turkish flag decorated dessert called the ‘Wish Tree’.

Sitting outside in the private, separate cabanas was a challenge for synchronised service. Much planning and training beforehand paid off. We are very spoiled here in Turkey with service and possibilities. When an invitation from our own Bailli arrives, we know the spoiling will be first class.

It was a lovely weekend in an incredible hotel with wonderful people. What more can we wish for?

Love and respect to our dear Bailli and his inspiring Chefs, Managers and Liberty team workers. We appreciated the Liberty Fabay Hotel family for their unwavering support
and self-sacrifice.

Vive la Chaîne!
