Perched high above the village of Uchisar, this serenely beautiful and utterly unique hotel is built from ancient ruins, caves and underground tunnels and is perfectly located for the exploration of all of Cappadocia’s treasures. Celebrating Cappadocia’s tradition of cave dwellings, the hotel provides 53 spacious suits with 6 mansions that open onto balconies, terraces and secluded courtyards, often with splendid views of neighboring Pigeon 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. All Splendid Suites even have their own private in-suite swimming pool.
Other features of the argos in Cappadocia include the Seki Restaurant, with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the valley and “fairy chimneys.” It uses locally grown products and spices to create the ideal combination of regional cuisine with international fare. The hotel’s huge cellar, housed in its own caves, showcases bottles from its own Kalecik Karasi and Shiraz vineyards as well as other Cappadocian selections. Bezirhane, a spectacular event space over 26 feet high with giant stone walls and pillars, is situated in the two-thousand year old underground monastery and can accommodate up to 120 people for special events.
Uchisar is located 7 km east of Nevehir, 12 km west of Urgup and 10 km south of Avanos. It is situated in the exact center of the large Cappadocia triangle 80 kilometers from Aksaray to the west, Kayseri to the east and Nide to the south on the Uchisar highway. There are daily scheduled flights from Istanbul to Kayseri and the Nevehir Cappadocia Airport.
