Calista Post-Project:
Calista Luxury Resort started to build in 2005 and was completed in 2007. This was to be the first Tourism based investment for Özkar İnşaat LTD. however, as are all of their Projects, Özkar made sure that they “completed construction using products only the highest of quality regardless of the cost”. Each material used to construct Calista Luxury Resort was of high quality to ensure a lengthier use life. Frank Solano, the Interior designer had organised a grand opening for the hotelas a fitting tribute to his valued friends, who had commissioned him to design this remarkable hotel interior. 
It was Frank the Artist, Sculptor, Hotel designer and ingenious motorist who had suggested to Calista that the best way they could celebrate the opening of this new resort, was to bring the finest automotive sculptures to the show, which was the grand finale for a fleet of 1920s & 30s Bentleys. 

Frank Solano, an international Award winning interior designer from London who up to date has taken on more than 280 of the worlds finest establishments to complete a unique interior design, was extremely happy when he heard about the Calista Project. He decided to put all of his projects that has brought to life up to now into Calista, to make it the most unique hotel in the world. He quotes: “The area where the project you work on awakens a soul inside the person. Calista is established in a geographically fascinating place. Where blue meets green, everything about these location is tranquil and therefore deserves nothing more than the best and those that are lucky enough to visit hear are equally lucky and that is one of the things that inspired me about this project, I wanted to add all of my works and put them together. Everything then fell into place”.
