Casa dell’Arte The Residence lives and breathes the aesthetic and cultural atmosphere of the past, present and future. Old stones from Kayseri and one-of-a-kind antique door from Edirne were used in the hotel’s construction. Every stone, every painting, every sculpture at the hotel is an original piece of artwork. The Büyükkuşoğlu Family Collection is exhibited throughout the hotel; in the lobby, in the rooms, in common areas, in the garden and even by the pool for the guests’ enjoyment.
Guests can wake up facing contemporary Turkish masterpieces by Burhan Doğançay or Nuri İyem, have breakfast aside a Komet, sip champagne while watching a Botero or dine in a room with sculptures that one would have a chance to view maybe only in a contemporary art museum. There are over 200 Turkish paintings displayed at the hotel, the pieces displayed in the public areas are revolving every year.
Each of the 12 guest suites are individually decorated and bear the name of the signs of the zodiac. The Babylonians imagined the sky as a huge circle divided into twelve separate “houses”, each representing different energy patterns on earth. And thus, the twelve signs of the zodiac which rule these diverse energies were born. Similarly, because the suites are decorated with works of art; each more prized than the other, it too is like an astrological “house” each with a different kind of energy.
For the ultimate peaceful, romantic vacation and due to high value of the artworks exhibited in the rooms and the public areas, we are not able to accommodate guests below the age of twelve in The Residence section.
