Taş Otel has been opened in 2001 as the first small hotel by Zeynep
Öziş who was one of the pioneers of “protective tourism” implemented successfully in Alaçatı. Ms. Öziş has questioned the ‘mission, vision, strategy and action plan’ steps that she has learned in professional life in line with her expectations and the answer she found was to be able to live and work away from the big cities, together with people and animals, doing physical exercise and having a balanced life and Taş Hotel, which was also her dream when she was young, came into being.
Taş Otel is a century old Greek house with a swimming pool and peaceful green garden and it has been awarded as one of the best 20 small European hotels by the British Sunday Times. The hotel has an olive grove of 200 olive trees and each year olive harvesting is done together with the guests. The harvested olives are processed and served. Delicious Alaçatı cake with lemon is served with the five o’clock tea made with the Çeşme lemons and in the winter the fireplace and the books are waiting for the guests.
