Radisson BLU Hotel Kaş Integrates with the Spirit of Kaş

The Radisson BLU Hotel Kaş project, located in the Kaş district of Antalya, known for its natural beauty and historical heritage, draws its design inspiration from the region’s topographic structure and cultural context. Structural elements such as natural stone facades, traditional roof tiles, handcrafted special ceramic surfaces, and wooden joinery used in traditional buildings were modernized and functionally incorporated into the project. The walls were covered with traditional “village plaster” techniques, which have been brought to life with knowledge passed down through generations. This plaster not only aesthetically reflects the essence of Kaş but also provides natural insulation. Earth tones support this naturalness by adding warmth to the rooms, and the blend of these tones with modern design creates a tranquil atmosphere. Glass facades and sliding panels that allow easy transition between indoor and outdoor spaces bring the peaceful rhythm of nature into the interiors. The Radisson BLU Hotel Kaş operates on sustainability principles: waste management, energy savings, and water conservation practices are adopted to protect the natural beauty of Kaş and minimize environmental impact.

The Radisson BLU Hotel Kaş, with its architecture respectful of the region it is in, is not just a hotel but a space where guests can feel and experience the spirit, history, and nature of Kaş. Designed to offer guests not only the chance to explore the unique beauty of Kaş but also to touch the city’s story and become one with it, the hotel embodies the idea of “I am new but I belong here,” reflecting respect for Kaş’s history, culture, and natural richness in every aspect.
