La Capria Hotel is a stylish and romantic boutique hotel with a laid back bohemian feel located in Alacati on Turkey’s West coast. Alacati is the favourite weekend haunt of the Istanbul style crowd who flock to the pretty little town with its rambling cobbled streets; great mix of pretty white washed pavement café’s, top class restaurants and art galleries. The town has a wonderful climate most of the year round, with a gentle breeze to keep things cool in the summer months.
Described by The Sunday Times as one of “Europe’s Hot New Hotels,”, La Capria has been created by husband and wife interior design team Mete Nisari and Italian born Alexandra La Capria. Together they have combined their influences to create a unique mix of Italian and Turkish design. From deluxe rooms to a range of suites, the hotel is decorated with a flamboyant mix of antique pieces from across the globe – huge mirrors from Marrakech, rich fabrics from Italy and Turkey – all with an oriental flavor. With colour everywhere, the look of La Capria is quirky, original and romantic.
The hotel’s rooms are all set around a lovely pool, which doubles as a wedding dance floor if required, surrounded by lush gardens, beds of Turkish lavender and huge banana palms. The overriding atmosphere is one of romance – at night the garden is lit up with Turkish lanterns and candles.
La Capria is licensed for weddings and can accommodate 250 wedding guests for dinner or 350 for canapés and cocktails. In addition to the Turkish weddings, La Capria can also create more traditional European style weddings.
The service at La Capria is fantastic – nothing is too much trouble for hosts Mete and Alexandra who pride themselves on a very personal service. They will guide you through the whole legal process of getting married and can arrange any personal touches be they huge garlands of flowers, special cocktails or a live band. With design their speciality, you can be sure that your wedding will look beautiful too.
For honeymooners the intimate setting of La Capria offers privacy and space. Newlyweds should choose one of the four “Love Suites” – 50m en suite rooms with their own large private terraces overlooking the pool.
