Cappadocia Cave Resort and Spa
All guests enjoy a welcome cocktail and complimentary fruit basket.
Overlooking the jagged lunar landscape of Cappadocia – Turkey’s very own moonscape – Cappadocia Cave Resort & Spa is just the place to bed down in five star caveman style.
Spend the night amid this elemental landscape in five star surrounds with every 21st century comfort thrown in. Add on stunning views, a luxury spa and Turkish culinary delights and you have a top-of-the-range hillside cave retreat hotel. The area's most famous sights – the rock-carved dwellings of Uchisar and the Fairy Chimney formations – are close by.
Built into the mountainside on the slopes of Uchisar Castle from the same rocks that have been used for cave homes over the centuries, Cappadocia Cave Resort & Spa blends into this dramatic, otherworldly lunar landscape – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Rooms are not surprisingly a mix of curved cave-style walls, wood ceilings and natural stone, with up-to-the-minute features like a digital jukebox, LCD televisions and (in some) balconies. Inspired by the dramatic shapes of Cappadocia’s rock formations, each one features cave-like flowing walls, with Turkish kilims and local ceramics adding splashes of colour. And don’t worry, these cave quarters all have windows!
Suites feature huge beds, jacuzzis designed for double dips and fireplaces for snuggling beside after a day’s sightseeing in the nearby Pigeon Valley at Goreme – scene of the world’s biggest Open Air Museum.
Award-winning fusion cuisine is served in the hotel’s glass-fronted Padishah restaurant, or out on the terrace when the sun is shining. Naturally there’s a good selection of local Cappadocian wines to accompany your meal.
Ready to work off the damage? Chalk up some lengths in the cliff-edge outdoor heated pool overlooking the valley below or turn up the heat with a traditional Turkish hammam – the perfect way to de-stress.
