A British couple from Sussex experienced the disappointment of their lives, right on their honeymoon, after finding that the lush forest surrounding their luxury hotel in Turkey had burned to the ground … with a year before their arrival.
The newlyweds now claim that hotel staff in Dalaman, a city on Turkey’s southwest coast, did not tell them nothing about disaster.

“ It was a huge shock when I got there– I opened the curtains in the room and looked at a burnt landscape and I was so angry that I burst into tears. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Alecz Finch (50 years old) described the apocalyptic scene for Kennedy News.
The couple chose the hotel uniquely for its wonderful setting, described online as “ bordered by deep green mountains on three sides”.
In August this year, the couple booked their honeymoon for September 13, planning to fly out just a week after they tied the knot. But the honeymoon turned into a nightmare.
” It is simply sterile. It looks like the apocalypse has happened, it’s just nothing. There were no birds, foliage or flowers. It was gloomy. That view is the same around the entire hotel. Colin (60-year-old) just looked at my own and said: “What have I done?”. We were so disappointed”, said Alecz.
The couple claims that the honeymoon was ruined by the remains of the burned forest, but also by a mysterious disease that infected them both, without giving more details.
Alecz went down to the hall to complain, but got no answer from to the people at the front desk.Finally, a bar worker informed the distraught travelers that a terrible forest fire had ravaged the area the year before, in September 2021, completely destroying the land.
After complaining to TUI about the “total misrepresentation” of the hotel’s image, Alecz claims they were denied any compensation on the grounds that the fire was an “act of God”.
” Forest n there is such an orgasm as they describe it, and there is nothing on the website to indicate that the forest is no longer there,” said Alecz.
She claims the hotel and TUI have had “plenty of time” to update their websites and advertising.
“ To think I would accept that this is an act of God a year after it happened it’s absolutely ridiculous,” she added.
A bearer A TUI spokesperson issued a coupon and apology, according to Kennedy News, acknowledging that the stay “did not meet the standard expected” and announcing that it was investigating the issues raised.
Representatives also ” Julian Hotels” did not respond to the request to comment on the situation.
