While it may sound odd to say that there’s a luxurious cave you can stay in, that happens to be the truth. Argos is one of a handful of “cave hotels” in Cappadocia, Turkey that combines luxury accommodations and spa sensibilities with the truly unforgettable landscape of this amazing place.

When Martha Stewart visited Cappadocia, she stayed at Argos and called it a “Spectacular and charming hotel.” Argos is located on the site of an ancient monastery in Old Uchisar Village, where people lived in caves that were carved into the rocks. The advantage of cave dwellings was that they generally provide year-round temperatures that don’t vary too much, regardless of the cold or heat of the sometimes punishing environment outside.

Argos worked hard and thoughtfully to restore the interconnected homes in the village, which now provide tranquil and aesthetically charming accommodations, terraces, and gardens.

You can tour the grounds and see the underground tunnels and wine cellars, view the vegetables and fruits growing in the incredible volcanic soil or drying in the Turkish sun or just relax on your own private terrace.

Winner of just about any award you can imagine, the Argos is a unique hotel in Cappadocia, one of the most unique destinations anywhere.

We also recommend spending an early morning sipping Turkish tea and watching the hot air balloons at sunrise from the lobby terrace. You will make memories here that you will not soon forget.

    This looks amazing! I’m all for splurging on luxury hotels which are unique like this. So now my hotel bucket list is the icehotel in Sweden and the Cave hotel in Turkey :D! Thanks!

    • Hi Megan! Yes it is amazing. We’re with you on the Icehotel – would love to try that too. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Whaaat? Cave rooms with their own pools? That sounds pretty unique! Although the name Argos makes me laugh because it is a chain store here in the Uk, haha. Wouldn’t stop me staying there though. 🙂

    Wow. The view from this luxury hotel is spectacular. With some Turkish tea I don’t know if I would ever want to leave

    This looks like it would be so much fun. Beautiful details and the dining space looks as superb as the food must be.

  5. Have always had Cappadocia on my list and that includes a stay in a cave hotel as well apart from the hot air balloon ride. Will keep this hotel in mind if I ever get to Turkey again. 🙂

    I’m a little obsessed with caves, so I do love the idea of staying in one. This is definitely more luxurious than any of the caves I’ve been in. 😉
