The Museum Hotel
Have you ever stayed in a luxury cave? Well, now you can at The Museum Hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey. Overlooking Cappadocia’s famed Fairy Chimneys, guests can watch hot air balloons soar over the otherworldy rock formations from their bedroom window or while enjoying a sunrise cofee. The Museum Hotel ensures your awe-inspiring experience does not end once you enter your room. The 30 rooms and cave suites occupy restored ruins, some that are literal caves carved into the rock side. All are decorated with rare antiques from the owner’s personal collection of Ottoman, Seljuk, Roman, and Hittite period pieces giving guests the sense they are staying in a living museum, hence the hotel’s name. Sneak out of your room through a secret tunnel to wander the organic garden or take a private cooking lesson. The Museum Hotel takes food seriously. Guests can join a chef on butcher shop and spice market visits then learn how to whip-up their own turkish dish in the hotel’s kitchen. The spa is equally impressive. Indulge in a Cappadocian Roses massage on the massage terrace, surrounded by open arches and lanterns.
