Externally, the modern building may not be much to look at but inside it’s supremely stylish and decorated throughout with original paintings, many of them done by artists who have attended art camps here.
The Karlık (KAHR-luk) is a hotel with an alternative touch. The 22 spacious guest rooms are spread out over two floors. Beds, some of them circular, some of them on stone platforms, come with orthopedic mattresses and anti-allergenic fillings.
All rooms have either Jacuzzis or steam baths.
Candles are a conspicuous feature, and every room has its own music system. The furnishings mix the old and new to pleasing effect. Color schemes are bold and original.
A huge dining room and reception area ensure plenty of space for guests to get to know each other.
The annual art camp in June draws a mixed bag of sculptors, painters and graphic artists from all over Turkey and the rest of the world.
