After a long & successful career at Henkel, Zeynep Öziş returned home, bought an old stone house in Alaçatı, and transformed it into a wonderful hotel in 2001. By then few people knew about the village, and Taş Otel was the first boutique hotel of Alaçatı. I was one of the first customers and fell in love with the place.
When I first met this graceful lady with golden hair, curious big eyes, warm smile, I appreciated her vision, courage and sophisticated taste which shows itself in every detail. One comes across very original and fine touches on every corner of the hotel: rooms, lounge and garden. She was personally involved in every step of the renovation process: the architectural design, construction, decoration, management and created this oasis in such a short time. Due to large interest by the people who admired the architecture and decoration of Taş Hotel, Zeynep has since been involved in plenty of old stone house renovation projects in Alaçatı. Taş Hotel, as a pioneer in the village, has played a key role in creating Alaçatı’s reputation. Zeynep has put a lot of effort into ensuring Alacati grows without losing its soul & identity, and her contributions in Alaçatı’s current status in undeniable – it would be safe to say that Taş Hotel is a milestone for Alaçatı!
Occupying a 120-year old Greek mansion in Alaçatı’s centre, Tas Otel offers elegant rooms with authentic features and a garden with a 10-metre pool. Aegean beaches are just a 10-minute drive away. All rooms at Tas Otel feature wood beams and natural stone elements and they come decorated with handmade quilts and curtains. Each room is air-conditioned and comes with a private bathroom and toiletries. A daily breakfast with olives and fresh vegetables from the hotel’s garden is served on the sheltered garden terrace. Homemade jams and delicious pastries are also included in the comprehensive breakfast menu. Guests can enjoy drinks from the bar all day long, and free Wi-Fi is available in all public areas, as well as free car parking on site. Şaundry service is provided at the 24-hour open reception desk, along with a shuttle service and sightseeing tours.
