Argos in Cappadocia

This unique, boutique property is open all year round and is set amongst the magical moonscapes and fairy chimneys of one of the world’s most fascinating and historic regions. As breathtaking under a blanket of snow in winter as it is spectacular in bloom during spring and summer, this bucket-list destination and beautiful hotel has to be seen to be believed. Ideal for romantics (twin it with Istanbul), wine lovers, culture vultures, thrill seekers and Instagrammers alike.

Argos is a luxury boutique hotel with 51 guest rooms and suites across seven different ‘mansions’, each uniquely designed and furnished with antique rugs and artefacts from the region. Connected by underground tunnels and celebrating the local tradition of cave dwellings, accommodations offer open fireplaces, valley views over the fairy tale landscape and private in-suite pools.

The main restaurant is Nahita, a unique culinary experience offering one of the world’s most ancient views. The beautiful Seki restaurant and Lounge offer indoor and outdoor seating with incredible views over the Fairy Chimneys below. Regional, Turkish and international dishes are served using fresh local produce some of which is grown on-site. Deep inside the underground caves of the property, the SEKI wine cellar offers the very best of world-class Anatolian wines in an extraordinary, ancient setting.

Wine tasting in the underground cellars; cookery classes; hot air ballooning over the region; classical, jazz and Sufi concerts in The Chapel; Goreme Open Air Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; underground cities; hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking; unique venues for weddings, celebrations and events.

A choice of daily flights approx 1 hour 15 minutes from Istanbul to Nevsehir (25 minutes’ drive to hotel) or Kayseri (1 hour’s drive). Argos is located high above the village of Ushicar in Cappadocia, central Turkey.

Argos will have 71 rooms from April 2024 and a new spa opens in April.
