A message from CEO
Our Marvellous Guests,
The world, including our country is going through some extraordinary times. Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly altered our daily lives, habits and the way we work. We had to lock ourselves in our homes to keep safe, during which we had plenty of time for serious navel-gazing. We contemplated our rights and wrongs. As the pandemic razed through humanity, we were surprised to see how nature was healing itself from the destruction caused by us, humans. Nowadays, we often hear the same resolution from people all around the world, “When we get back to normal, nothing will be the same as before, ever again.” True, nothing will remain from the old-world order. A new world where sustainability is the core value of life, where life and nature receive the much-deserved respect, will rise after the pandemic is over. That kind of world is no news to us.
I had this dream three years ago to establish a small heaven with nature and sustainability as the key-norms, Club Marvy was the realization of that dream. A distinguished team that shared the same core values helped me build Marvy, a simple world that consists of nature, art and local cuisine. We were aware that the new luxury meant providing people spaces where they felt free and become whole again with the nature and the sea. Club Marvy was designed specially to offer our guests happiness, inner peace through wonderful experiences in culture, locality and simplicity. Today we are proud to see how spot-on our predictions were and how well we had prepared for a future that became a reality so soon. We have managed to create a perfect reference point for the codes of the new world order. Sure enough, our dream to make a better world continues, we will be working even harder now to outshine ourselves.
We will see through these hard days because we are Club Marvy..
Our horizons are as wide as the oceans with our spirit as free as the birds soaring high above…
We are inspired by our roots and we have a deep respect for the world, the nature and humanity. Our values that define us have a vast range from art, architecture to local cuisine and folklore. With guests from all around the world, we are a big family. Our objective is to make the world a better place for the generations to follow. Solar energy is used for hot water on our premises and we have a dedicated team to sustainability that keep working on implementing and maintaining energy saving principles. Working to achieve zero-waste, we recycle almost all our waste in collaboration with government approved recycling companies. We have minimized the use of plastics on our compound.
All food waste is used to feed animals and birds. Tea leaves and egg shells are used for compost. Vegetables and fruits are disinfected using ozone instead of chlorine, enabling us to minimize the use of chemicals and energy. We have taken all the necessary measures to prevent any pollution of the land and the sea, implementing quick response systems in case of leakage. Our establishment is working to achieve a paper-free system to protect and preserve our forests. Not a single tree was harmed during the construction of our resort, our beach is blue-flag certified. We organize workshops for wonderful experiences that range from macramé to organic dyeing. Our cuisine is inspired by local and traditional tastes, but it has a global approach. With our Turkish baths, SPA center and kids’ club, we were expecting a wonderful season in 2020. Unfortunately, Marvy, despite its amazing environmental approach and deep regard for nature, had to have its share of the unexpected crisis that shook the whole world.
The corona virus pandemic has changed our lives profoundly. Not only Turkey, but the whole world is fighting the virus. Our main priority nowadays is to stay healthy. We are unable to welcome our guests that we deem as part of our family and for the time being we cannot add new saplings to the 800 young trees on our 2500 square meter land in Özdere, but we will abide and we will prevail.We have faith that the corona days will end without causing our establishment too much harm.
One day, when this storm is over, we will rejoin at Club Marvy, in the mesmerizing beauty of the Aegean Region, on the Kesre Bay where pristine beaches meet the crystal blue waters. We will compensate every day that we were locked in our homes with magnificent sunsets after basking in the sun, enjoying the deep blue waters and the amazing green environment all day.
Happy to see you at Club Marvy soon.
