Argos in Cappadocia
Over the past year we saw the advent of an unlikely trend: the luxury cave hotel. In the hillside village of Uchisar, the site of a thousand-year-old former monastery carved out of the region’s soft volcanic rock face encompasses 33 guest rooms with arched ceilings and hand-carved wall niches. We were thrilled to find an indoor plunge pool in our Splendid suite, and soaked in the 88-degree water before settling in front of our roaring fireplace with a book. In the evenings, classical, jazz, and Sufi music recitals are performed in the Bezirhane concert hall, known for its extraordinary acoustics and connected to an ancient network of underground cave dwellings.
