Travel Bug: Cave Hotel in Turkey

This hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey is built into a mountain, so all the rooms are cave-like.  In a cool way.

Intriguing, right?  Plus, it’s a luxury hotel, so no cardboard pillows and paper sheets once you get to your little private cave.  And take a look at the bathrooms…

So serene…

Here’s a little history for you:

The name “Cappadocia” dates back to Persian times, when the region was called as “Katpatukya” meaning “The Land of Beautiful Horses”. Since then Cappadocia has seen the rise and fall of many different civilizations. It is a land of vast plains, rolling hills, rugged mountains and extinct volcanoes. It is a veritable treasury of historical relics from the Chalcolithic era to the Seljuk Turks period. The visitor may seldom travel more then a few miles without encountering some derelict reminders of Cappadocia‘s colorful past.

According to the hotel website, “the closest Airport to Cappadocia is in Kayseri and it is 75 kms. from Yunak Evleri. There are 5-6 flights a day from April through October and 3 from November through March operated by Turkish Airlines, Onur Air and Fly Air.”  And just a quick Expedia search tells me that flights next May are just over $1600 (round trip) and have at least two stops.  So, not super easy or cheap, but pretty unique.  I wonder what there is to do over there (besides marvel at your neato hotel)?

    Hello! I think this is my first comment on your lovely blog, NBA.
    1) can I readers request a DWTS post/guest-post?
    2) I think i would be creeped out staying in a cave… BUT if that floats your boat, there is a Cave Bar in Granada, Espana just down the hill from the Alhambra. I think it would be right up your alley! Plus I think its a tad cheaper to go to Spain. and the southern part a beautiful this time of year 😉

let me know what you think!
