I meet with the genius of hospitality, Y. Vadi Karatopraklı this week. We shared his yesterday, today and tomorrow in his career and his achievements on his road to the top of the industry. Here is Y. Vadi Karatopraklı, the golden power of hospitality.
He carried all the cases with the fastest and best strategies to the final as he combined a strong hospitality spirit with his leadership. His skills, courage and motivation was the victory crown. He planned his management with the hihgest concentration. He was the frontier of transformation, development and inovation.
A real hotel leader is the destiny of a hotel
He created a brand through his efforts starting from the corridors of Ela Quality towards the crowded streets of the hospitality. He worked hard day and night. His courage and vision enabled him to create this brand from a ‘baby’ investment.
He was confident, he persuaded; he was never tired, he never paused, will not ever do
His respect, discipline, loyalty, his spirit dedicated to success, confident and dynamic leadership, corporate governance enabled him to go ahead on his way to be a super power of hospitality
His honesty and powerful estimating, his attention on his job and his consistency in making effective business plans, dedication to a motivating team work spirit, his special grade definiton for the best hotel as ‘ The best hotel is the one which satisfies his guest most’, helped him to stay strong ever. He did not attempt on the jobs which does not give him a full enthusiasm. Ever he attempted, he adored himself.
He deserved the loyalty and trust of all the investors he worked for. He trained himself, he trained his staff, he improved and he helped people to improve.
I learned being modest from Silkar Group
Corporateness from Alarko Tourism Group
How to be a boss from MNG Tourism GRoup
Sustainable uniqueness from Ozak Global Holding
“ This is my career route Mr Alper. If you have no targets you cannot achieve. Experience is the result of working. Whenever I undertake a job it becomes my own business. I do what I have to immediately. There is no excuse of delaying your priorities.”
The first performers of the Puravida Concept
The content of the Puravida Concept is the result of the service quality and high awareness of the Ela Quality Hotel.
Puravida Resort is privately designed brand for Europe’s largest tour operator, TUI’s guests in the highest level segment and this is a real ‘first’ among all the other hotel brands of TUI.
“ This new unique brand is a result of our strategic cooperation with TUI. This brand is a matter of international admiration. We carried Turkish hospitality to the global vision of the 21st century. We imagined, believed, adopted and we did what we know best.”
“When I started in 2007, I was focused on the next 15 years planning rather than 2008. Turkey will receive more direct investments by 2023. Thus we are planning a chain of Puravida by Ela Quality& Spa by 2015.”
“ I am self confident about mamaging the funds and assets of my company. I work professionally and I have the morality for this. I never doubt about doing what I have to once I am convinced and I trust. Mr Ahmet Akbalık, the Chirman of the Board of Ozak Global Holding, is an incredible investor. I is confident in the training and staff sources. He believes in changing and inovation. He never keeps away from investing these fields.”
And my ‘Never do’s; I never comment before I understand, I see and I meet. I have no prejudgements. Vadi Karatopraklı never fails in keeping his promises. I connect with the milk supplier or cheese supplier if I have to.
I know my suppliers personally. I care about the details where the secrets of quality is hidden. I believe in team work spirit and I always feel as WE instead of I for a perfect result.
Puravida Ela Quality Resort Hotel welcomes you with the special Ela Smile, traditional Turkish Hospitality and warm friendship. We host you to the best and we farewell with a bottle of water poured after you.

From Sakarya to the Oceans
My brave son. My kind hearted friend.
“ But, father, all the elders were kids once upon a time”
Born in 14 August 1969 in İstanbul, Y. Vadi Karatoprak’s family roots are in Sakarya. The secrets of his success is hidden in the strong family ties, his wife’s support. His son Sarp Karatoprak inspires him for better performance in his career.
“ Father, why do you go to work? Why do you love your job?” asks Sarp with a kiss on his cheek.
“ My son, loving your job means loving your country. We have to work hard so that we can do something for our country.” says Vadi Karatopraklı.
Sarp admits all these. “ But lets play football, lets swim as well. You keep fit if we do all these and be more succesfull. I pay for the meals.”
I admire this yound boy. “ You are so smart, sympathetic and charismatic boy. I am happy to meet You.” I say and Good Bye…
