Abstract: Depending on the intense life of modern human, the desire for recreation, entertainment and discovering different places has caused the concept of tourism to grow and diversify day by day. The phenomenon of tourism that has developed after 1990s had faced a burst after 1980s and the people has filled the coasts with hotels in order to access the triple of 'sea, sand and sun'. The significant damages caused by mass tourism have directed the tourism industry to alternative tourism types and to design of facilities adopting ecological approach. The designs formed in the light of ecological approaches are reviving the local memory by reflecting the characteristics of the relevant area, and are revealing structural approaches which are susceptible to environment. In this context, the examples of touristic buildings at different areas of the world which are designed based on the ecological architecture criteria had been reviewed in literature, and the contribution they provide to natural environment had been searched. As the result of these researches, the principles that are being based on the design of ecological touristic accommodation facilities had been determined, and the contribution of these buildings to nature had been revealed. It is being observed that the selected and examined touristic facilities bear traces peculiar to the area they are constructed, and that they support the ecological facility comprehension through their materials, formal characteristics which are in conformity with nature, and through their approaches that are not constituting waste material in nature, using the energy efficiently and imposing restrictions on consumption of natural resources. As the result of this research, it will be tried to determine what kinds of principles are being based on in the formation of ecological touristic accommodation facilities.
