Türkiye Epic Stays

Sleeping in a cave might not exactly sound luxurious (or at all enticing) — until you see the Divan Cave House. Located in the ancient city of Göreme in Cappadocia, Turkey, the cave house is a remarkable blend of luxury and ruggedness, hearkening back thousands of years and giving you a glimpse into ancient Turkish culture.

We hope you love the Divan Cave House! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.

The Divan Cave House is set in four restored antique caves that have been transformed into luxurious accommodations with modern amenities. Each cave is designed to offer guests the comfort of modern living while still embracing the rustic charm of the area’s traditional architecture. Guests can choose from two single-room or two double-room caves that offer beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. All rooms come complete with air conditioning, heating, WiFi access, and satellite TV.

In addition to offering comfortable accommodations, Divan Cave House also provides guests with a variety of other services and facilities. The on-site restaurant serves up delicious local cuisine prepared by experienced chefs. There is also an outdoor terrace where guests can soak up some sun or enjoy a romantic dinner under the stars. Other facilities include an outdoor swimming pool and hammam (Turkish bath). The property also offers shuttle service to nearby attractions such as Uchisar Castle and Fairy Chimneys National Park.

At the center of Cappadocia is Göreme National Park and the Göreme Open Air Museum — both easily accessible from the hotel. The park houses many incredible rock formations known as “fairy chimneys,” which are formed when erosion caused by wind and water exposes softer layers of rock beneath harder ones. These fairy chimneys can be up to 131 feet high and are best seen from hot air balloon rides in the mornings when they are illuminated by the sun’s rays. Once you’re done admiring these majestic formations from above, explore them further on foot and visit ancient cave churches with frescoes dating back to 700 A.D.
