Kismet is an hotel to be remembered, just like the famous musical of the same name. It is a “love at first sight” place – just like when it was founded. The late Humeyra Sultan, the Ottoman Sultan Vahidettin and the last Ottoman Grand Vizier Tevfik Pasha, fell in love at first sight with this beautiful landscape almost 50 years ago. Her husband, Mr. Ozbas, bought the land and the couple built a beautiful home of a hotel – fit for kings and queens, but also for you and me.
