Lying in south central Turkey is a city called Cappadocia, it sits within Turkey’s Antolia region. The city has one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world – a deep valley with soaring rock formations, hills and beautiful “fairy chimneys”, hot air balloons floating around the city. Cappadocia is most famous for its “fairy chimneys” and also for its beautiful cave hotels.
If you decide to plan a trip to Cappadocia, don’t settle for an ordinary hotel. Instead, have an original experience in one of the cities landmark cave hotels.
Cave hotels are renewed ancient dwellings. They are called “cave hotels” because ancient man literally carved into the rock to construct the city.
The Sacred House is a grand example. The luxury hotel is literally inside a cave. It has just seven rooms, one of which used to be a private chapel.
The concept for the design was dreamed up by a Hollywood fantasy cinema designer-historian-artist. The design takes partial inspiration from the dramatic curves and textures of Cappadocia’s famous grottoes.
The sumptuous hotel was constructed without regard to cost- imagine Turkish marble flooring, hammam spa, shimmering stone walls, cross- or barrel-vaulted ceilings, original carved-stone moldings and hanging stone sculptures, fireplaces and heavenly frescoes.
The guest rooms décor features ornate furnishings, from decorative rugs to painted ceramics that pay tribute to local craft tradition, and the amenities are thoroughly modern, including large LCD screen televisions, wireless internet and hydro-massage showers.
And the food is classic Greek, Turkish, and Armenian fair.
The outdoor experience is equally decadent.
It’s the perfect place to sit and watch “fairy chimneys” in the morning.
