There are some destinations which you want to discover once in a life time, and there are some which you always want to be back. The ancient Cappadocia is definitely one of them!
It might be the way the Land of Beautiful Horses glows as the sun rises, or how intoxicating it is to see the moonscape area around Goreme, Urgup and Uchisar as that same sun sets.
When we started planning our trip to the Turkish most visually striking region, our imagination ran wild with location ideas filled with surreal scenery from a land that´s steeped in history and rich traditions.
It made sense that the lodging options would be equally astounding. But in a destination brimming with amazing cave hotels, how do you discern which ones are the best of the best?
A Unique Stay
Like something straight out of a fantasy epic, Sultan Cave Suites Hotel is a jewel box of a home base for all sorts of Cappadocian adventures. The location, in the old part of Goreme, means everything is within walking distance.
The hotel features 30 rooms, each of them exceptional in their own inimitable way. With a cavernous interior, our Junior Suite was beautifully appointed and comprised a living room with a cozy fireplace, an equally dazzling bedroom and generous bath amenities.
The moment we entered this hideaway splendidly perched atop Aydinli Hill, we immediately realized that this otherworldly hotel was truly unique. The magic of the property can be felt from its stunning outdoor spaces that welcome you to relax with a mint tea as you take in the fabulous views.
Every morning, we would wake up to a magical Capaddocia dream. I remember rushing to the hotel’s terrace to watch hundreds of beautiful colored hot air balloons filling the pink, pastel sky.
Around 6.30 the expansive terrace is always lively, filled with travellers and lovers willing to immortalize the breathtaking experience. One day, we ventured out to a near valley from which we enjoyed dreamlike views with nobody around.
We’re not generally huge fans of a buffet breakfast but Sultan Cave Suites does overachieve with their spread!
After a high-energy day of touring, we would spice up our lives with classic Turkish dishes at the hotel’s fabulous restaurant. Offering a beautiful setting indoors as well as in the open-air arched courtyard, Seten was definitely our option for dinner. These are definitely the meals we would fly around the world for!!
We just couldn´t leave Cappadocia without admiring the region´s natural grandeur from above.
Sultan Cave Suites arranged a breathtakingly beautiful balloon ride for us with Butterfly Balloons- an experience well worth paying for!!
