Celebrating Cappadocia’s tradition of cave dwellings, the hotel provides 42 spacious rooms and suites that open onto balconies, terraces and secluded courtyards, often with splendid views of neighboring Güvercinlik Valley and distant peaks. Capturing the feel and texture of timeless stone and wood, each room is different, designed as a fusion of ancient and contemporary styles often using local artisans. All splendid suites even have their own private in-suite swimming pool.
