We arrived early in the afternoon from Istanbul and after an hours ride from the nearest airport we pulled up to the gates of the Museum Hotel in Uchisar. Nothing could have prepared us for this experience!
The Kubbeli Suite as described by the Museum Hotel website: The opulently spaced Kubbeli Suite takes its name from the customized dome design in the bathroom. The room is spacious and comfortable and is distinguished by wealthy Ottoman-style decoration: the ceilings have been meticulously decorated with special wooden handicrafts and an antique central dome. The entire room is decorated with many precious antiquities, and also has a breathtaking view of the Cappadocia landscape. The bathroom reflects the magnificent harmony of unique Turkish marble and Ottoman Iznik ceramics. The Jacuzzi is one for the romantics, with its fabulous and fascinating view.
The next morning began bright and early with a 4:30 wake up call in order to catch the balloons! I can’t out into words what it felt like to open our doors and see the sky filled with balloons!
This is the view from our terrace! We met our photographer Kursatacar and set to work just as the balloons began to rise behind us.
The infinity pool wound up being the most popular place for photos! So if you are wanting that incredible Sunrise photo it’s best to get there very early!
I also can’t say enough about the incredible breakfast buffet! I recommend the cheese platter full of local delicacies. In addition to an ecological garden the Museum Hotel also has their own vineyards and produces their own wines.
A final note, I was so interested when I was researching the best hotels to stay at in Cappadocia and saw this on their website:
. . . As evidence of this, Museum Hotel is the only hotel in Turkey invited into the family of luxury hotels and special dining establishments that comprise Relais & Châteaux.
