I Want to Go to Go to There: The Hezen Cave Hotel in Turkey

There are so many great places to stay when traveling, whether they be easy on the wallet, easy on the eyes or easy on our backs as we enjoy a relaxing massage. I’m going to make more of an effort to share lodging that’s full of great design with you as it crosses my path. In honor of Liz Lemon, we’re going to christen this column “I Want to Go to There.” Sadly, this amazing hotel did not cross my literal path, but rather entered my life via an email from, which is always full of tempting trips I wish I could take.

Forget the bat cave, this hotel was formerly a house of bedrooms, carved out of a cave in Cappadocia, Turkey.

Common areas even have wi-fi, though unless you are booking a local hot air balloon ride online, being on your laptop at a place as beautiful as this should be a crime.

Turkish interior designer superstar Halide Didem designed the beautiful and exotic rooms. She layered bright colors, luxe fabrics, metallic finishes and exotic shapes atop neutral and natural base of textures, a design lesson we can all take a note from.

Beautiful terraces give guests a chance to soak in the views from a luxurious perch.

Cave bedrooms are a combination of rough-hewn walls that form a cozy room with sumptuous linens; the perfect combination for a great night’s sleep.

Are there any areas or hotels on your dream trip list? Please let us know about them in the comments section!

    I spent a month living in Turkey with a friend. It’s such a beautiful country. The architecture is particularly amazing.

    Turkey is the best place to appeal. You have many beautiful beaches and the place went to ask, is here!
