5-Star cave experience? Yes Please! Yunak Evleri is a five-star luxury hotel built right into the volcanic-formed mountainous region of Cappadocia, Turkey. Opened to its guests in 2000, the cave hotel features a combination of 7 cave houses with a total of 40 private cave rooms dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries and crowned with a 19th century Greek Mansion.
The rooms have each been impressively decorated with antiques from the Ottoman Empire, along with full hardwood flooring, spacious marble bathrooms.
“The name of the neighbourhood “Yunak” comes from the old days when women used to do all their washing and of course, socialising by the fountain located at the village square. Being by the fountain and at the Yunak was the center of daily life,” according to the hotel’s website.
The nearest airport is Kayseri International Airport, a 1.5-hour flight from Istanbul on Turkish Airlines.
