Sacred House in Urgup, Turkey

Lose yourself in the mystical beauty of Cappadocia, and find serenity in the ancient comforts of Sacred House. Built into the caves of eastern Anatolia, in the center of Turkey, this 250 year old Greek mansion welcomes you with a charm all its own. Twelve different suites offer fabulously unique décor, from the bright, warm Cycladic style of the Fullmoon Suite to the dark chic of Anka's Lair. Soak in a deep whirlpool tub surrounded by the playful mysticism of Deep Forest, and stretch out next to the fireplace in the vibrantly regal Bacchus Hideout. With stunning middle-age art, antique handcrafted furniture, and the marvelous fashion.

Begin your day with a delicious breakfast, then step out into the sun in the brilliant courtyard before venturing out for the day. In this picturesque land of sweeping valleys, grandiose mountains, and otherworldly spires you can spend days exploring in fascination and wonder. Take a tour of Red Valley and Ihlara Canyon and see villages carved into the volcanic rock, built up in the sweeping meringue-like spires, and deep underground. Gaze over the stunning rock formations of Soganli Valley then take a tour of the marvelous underground cities of Kaymakli, Tatlarin, and Deinkuyu, built to protect the original settlers from the might of Rome. Wander through the Goreme Open Air Museum where more than 30 churches and chapels, beginning in the 10th century and adorned with ancient frescoes, were carved from the rock. In the afternoon mountain bike or ride horseback through the valleys, then take in the view from high above on a magical sunset hot air balloon ride. After a day spent exploring the ancient lands of Anatolia, return to Sacred House for a delightful medieval dinner featuring Mediterranean and Armenian cuisine before retiring to the deep comforts of your room.

I've traveled the world and I can confidently say there is no hotel similar to this one. It's in the quaint little town of Urgup with of view of it and of the mountains. There is a place to sit on the roof and admire it. If you have any time to relax during your stay, there is a sauna, massage room, Turkish bath room, and a pool that looks like it's blood due to the tiling. All of this is built into the rock and some parts of the rooms are as well. And don't even get me started on the service. They are extremely hospitable and caring for what your liking is and will do whatever to make you happy. If you are coming to Cappadocia, there should be no question, this is the place to come.

Sacred House is unlike any hotel I've ever stayed. A series of 21 guest rooms, a library, and salon this amazing cave hotel is decorated in a way that feels like another world. Mystics and poets meet angels and sprites in a palace of fine art. I slept and lingered in the Sultan room. The decor was sumptuous. The linens and towels were top quality with good smelling designer amenities and a generous mini bar. The room has a speaker and each guest receives an iPad with a series of playlists courtesy of Sacred House with a Bluetooth enabled speaker in the room. The wifi is strong all over the property. The room has a fireplace, wardrobe, divan, and a large bathroom. The room is decorated with Italian glass and Ottoman fine art to transport you to a little dream. The message is to relax and let your creative mind take over. My only discomfort was lack of air movement in my room despite it having large windows (it was hot weather) and the lovely woman at reception immediately brought me two standing fans which I kept for the three nights I stayed. The dining room and salon are a pleasure to take the fresh breakfast in each morning. The Staff and the Chef are all exceptional people and I enjoyed their kindness throughout my stay. While I did not use the subterranean pool and spa I did visit it. If Dante went for self care that would be the place. See for yourself! I hope to return to Sacred House often enough to stay in each room. It is a tableau for a dream.

We had actually booked into another Lovely cave hotel in Urgup - but I'd heard about this place and was dying to see it with my own eyes. We knocked on the door and asked if we could look around. The staff couldn't have been more kind - We had cocktails at the bar and the treated us to a tour of the entire place - No picture or description can do it justice - Your jaw just drops and stays that way - Every new corner was a vital and sensual delight. No detail or cranny was left to chance, every inch had been thought about and embellished with art and united vision - It was literally like being in a dream. I cannot wait to go back and stay there full time!!

We have travelled a lot in our lives and seen some incredible places, but when it comes to hotels, I don't think anything will surpass our experience at the Sacred House Hotel. Even standing at the entrance gate which in itself is beautifully detailed with figural elements and exquisite ironware, you know you will find something extraordinary beyond. I'd had a glimpse of this hotel on their website but nothing compares to being there in person. I have a particular love of gothic architecture so this hotel appealed to me initially because of all the gothic revival features but as we explored the hotel we realized that there is such a broad reference to different periods of history but the way they are combined and work in unison is due to the love and skill of the architect, who happens to be the owner of the hotel along with his wife. We had many conversations with Ece and we were delighted to meet her husband Turan as we were preparing to leave on our last day. The different themes of the suites present different perspectives on architecture and feature different materials philosophies and styles. We would have loved to spend a night in each suite however as that was not practical we chose the Archangel suite as it seemed to be the most cohesive gothic revival style. When we walked through the door we were overwhelmed with the feel of the space. It seemed reverend and mystical but most of all it was awe inspiring. The scale was perfect with the pointed arches and the height of the ceilings. The hand basin and the bath especially are works of art as they were carved out of a solid slab of marble. The traditional gold gilt gothic wall lights, chandelier, sanctuary lamp and candelabras that were dotted around the suite gave a touch of elegance and refinement to the rooms lined with course marble blocks. The royal blue velvet drapes added a softness and welcome warmth to the hard, cold sharpness of the stone walls. It was a pleasure just sitting in front of the fireplace, taking in the surroundings and if we could have stayed longer we would have just stayed in the suite but there was much more to explore. The dining room with the carved stone arches was the most exquisite room to eat in, however when we were shown to the underground pool which was like a palace carved into a cave, our jaws dropped. The juxtaposition of the rough hewn cave walls with detailed pillars, chandeliers and giant cupids coming off the wall holding lit sconces was just sensational. Being in the pool was like swimming in palace that had sunk into the subterranean waters of a cave after an earthquake had opened up the ground. Beyond this description it's hard to convey the emotive response to this incredible architecture that was built from the rubble that used to be an old Greek mansion. The family that lived there at the time was forcibly expelled from their ancestral property during the population exchange between Greece and Turkey in 1923. Kudos to Turan for the incredible showpiece that he has created from the remnants that remained of that family home.

we stayed here as a couple in their standard room. staff is very hepful and always kind. our room was big but had only one window. the bathroom was nice. room gets very hot and there is no built in or remote a/c which is a big problem for us. shared areas are gorgeous and architecture is beautiful one an only kind i have seen. rooms are different but if you pay more there are beautiful rooms. it is upsetting that this much price difference can change rooms so much. like i said no a/c and no tv in the rooms. breakfast is good i wish they used organic products. dinner is ok. the hotel arranged pick up from airport and tours for all days. they were very good. we took private tour for everything. overall it is a good hotel. concept is great.
