Sultan Cave Suites

Cappadocia, Turkey


Carved from the rocky peak of Aydinli Hill, Sultan Cave Suites offers a unique subterranean experience in the midst of Cappadocia’s magical heart.  Breathtakingly beautiful and wildly romantic, this historic landscape of fairy chimneys and arid mountains is home to the world-famous array of hot air balloons, which fill the sky with their myriad of colours every day of the year.

Key Features

  • 35 luxury cave rooms and suites set into the hillside
  • Huge array of private excursions including hot air balloon rides, ATV tours, horseback riding and jeep safari
  • Access to stunning outdoor pool and one of the world’s only cave Turkish Baths
  • Preserves local architecture
  • Traditional Turkish restaurant with rooftop bar and terrace
  • Home to the Seten Restaurant & Anatolian Cultural Centre
  • One of the best rooftops in Cappadocia from which to watch the balloons

With its sandstone caves, secluded courtyards and intimate terraces, the hotel is nothing short of a fairy tale delight. Built upon the dwellings of ancient civilisations, cavernous rooms tastefully combine modern luxury with authentic geological features. Hallways with vaulted ceilings lead into spacious rooms, where pillars of stone are carved to create large, four-poster beds, while rich Turkish rugs cover the dark wooden floors. Suites boast wide terraces with spectacular views over ancient rooftops and rocky mountains. Deep, copper bathtubs stand by arched windows, with the Sultan suite also offering a wood-clad jacuzzi for an extra romantic touch.

The hotel’s highly successful restaurant is fast becoming known as one of the best in the region. Serving a delicious selection of authentic Turkish cuisine, you can enjoy the warm light and low arches of the intimate indoor seating or soak up the relaxed ambiance of the open-air courtyard.

Take to the skies yourself with a range of balloon trip packages and excursions offered exclusively by your hosts. Venture into your wild surroundings on horseback, or plough through the rocky terrain on a thrilling ATV tour. You will also enjoy access to the spa facilities and outdoor pool of the neighbouring sister hotel, from which you can watch the bright balloons peacefully drift across the sky.

Why we love it

From its vantage point high on Aydinli Hill, Sultan Cave Suites offers the perfect location from which to observe Cappadocia’s main attraction. Every morning, weather permitting, the air above this ancient village fills with the vibrant colours of a plethora of hot air balloons. As the sun rises across the unique landscape, head to the rooftop for a leisurely breakfast and watch in awe as they saw overhead. The resident, highly photogenic dog might even pay you a visit!
