Yunak Evleri Cave Hotel
  • The 46 rooms of Yunak Evleri are housed in a network of 5th and 6th century cave houses, so evocative of the surrounding landscape

  • With a pool, spa and restaurant with outdoor and indoor dining areas, the hotel serves as both a base to explore the surrounding landscapes and a beautiful spot for a relaxing break

  • The rooms are a particular highlight, carved from the mountainside and with delightful quirks that make each one unique and evocative of the rugged mountain surrounds

  • Meals at Yunak Evleri are a delicious range of local and Turkish dishes, conjuring up a flavor of the vineyards, orchards and olive groves of the area


There can be few hotels more evocative of their surrounds than Yunak Evleri. Mirroring the extraordinary landscape of Cappadocia that lies on its doorstep, the hotel’s accommodation is carved from the mountain in a series of 5th and 6th century houses that contain 46 guestrooms, while a 19th century Greek mansion houses the main lobby and various social spaces. A pool, charming restaurant and spa create a self-contained retreat that you may never want to leave.

Each of the 46 rooms and suites feature a private patio overlooking the Turkish Mesa, all accommodation is individually designed and sympathetic to its ancient roots. Killim rugs and traditional handicrafts add color to the bare stone walls, their natural lines creating a cosy and romantic escape. Antique furniture, brass beds and traditional lighting add further charm without detracting from the intriguing whitewashed cave walls while marble bathrooms add an element of luxury.

With sweeping views of the caves and featuring local Cappadocian dishes such as grape leaves, kebabs and ravioli, the Caverna Restaurant is a taste of Cappadocia in scenic surrounds. Outside terraces offer al fresco dining with a view while a cosy fireplace corner is ideal for cooler evenings. If the tranquil surrounds and mesmerising views don’t prove sufficiently relaxing, the caves also house an atmospheric spa, with holistic treatments taking inspiration from Balinese and Thai traditions.

Yunak Evleri is ideally located for exploring the extraordinary geological oddities of Cappadocia, whether flying over the ‘fairy chimneys’ in a hot air balloon or trekking, cycling or horseback riding through the valleys, villages and vineyards. With cavernous churches and underground cities dotted throughout this iconic landscape, Yunak Evleri is a chance to experience a slice of this history in person.
