One of the best rooftops in Cappadocia from which to watch the balloons
With its sandstone caves, secluded courtyards and intimate terraces, the hotel is nothing short of a fairy tale delight. Built upon the dwellings of ancient civilisations, cavernous rooms tastefully combine modern luxury with authentic geological features. Hallways with vaulted ceilings lead into spacious rooms, where pillars of stone are carved to create large, four-poster beds, while rich Turkish rugs cover the dark wooden floors. Suites boast wide terraces with spectacular views over ancient rooftops and rocky mountains. Deep, copper bathtubs stand by arched windows, with the Sultan suite also offering a wood-clad jacuzzi for an extra romantic touch.
The hotel’s highly successful restaurant is fast becoming known as one of the best in the region. Serving a delicious selection of authentic Turkish cuisine, you can enjoy the warm light and low arches of the intimate indoor seating or soak up the relaxed ambiance of the open-air courtyard.
Take to the skies yourself with a range of balloon trip packages and excursions offered exclusively by your hosts. Venture into your wild surroundings on horseback, or plough through the rocky terrain on a thrilling ATV tour. You will also enjoy access to the spa facilities and outdoor pool of the neighbouring sister hotel, from which you can watch the bright balloons peacefully drift across the sky.
Why we love it
From its vantage point high on Aydinli Hill, Sultan Cave Suites offers the perfect location from which to observe Cappadocia’s main attraction. Every morning, weather permitting, the air above this ancient village fills with the vibrant colours of a plethora of hot air balloons. As the sun rises across the unique landscape, head to the rooftop for a leisurely breakfast and watch in awe as they saw overhead. The resident, highly photogenic dog might even pay you a visit!
