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.
Gastronomy gets serious attention here too with incredible wining and dining at the SEKi restaurant, lounge and wine cellar.
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.
There are 53 rooms, suites and splendid suites (these include private cave pools) offering their own unique style.
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.
