Caves You Can Actually Stay In Around the World


Staying at a unique hotel with breathtaking views of otherworldly landscapes is many vacationers’ dream that can easily become a reality. The location and accommodations of certain lodgings may even astonish the most experienced travellers. When four boring walls, a large bed and a mini-bar fridge are acceptable but not exciting, use your imagination and book a cave. Not all underground rooms are equal. Some are luxurious, while others are very basic. In any case, they all have their own unique history and mystery.


Corte San Pietro, a tiny neighbourhood with a courtyard where rooms and suites are carved out from the tufa stone, soft local sedimentary limestone. It has everything you need for an intimate and comfortable vacation, including bathtubs for two. Designed by a romantic couple, the five-room stylish lodging where the walls are made of stones also has candles, large beds, flat screen TVs and Internet. The hotel also offers baby-sitting and massages upon request. The historical structure has been laid bare, enhancing the masonry in tufa stone featured by niches and old-aged openings, and topped by large vaults. A standard room for two is £211 


Why not stay at the “largest, deepest, darkest, oldest, quietest hotel room in the world” or at least in the U.S.? The Grand Canyon Caverns are 200 feet by 400 feet with 70-foot ceilings (there is no chance you will feel claustrophobic), formed more than 65 million years ago, and located 220 feet below the surface. The Underground Cave Suite is £613 per night for two people. It is completely furnished with all amenities one would need – two beds, sofa, kitchenette, bathroom, tables and chairs. The water is hand carried down and up by staff. Possibly the best part of the trip is the chance to explore the caves without the crowds.


While there are above ground options, you can opt out for the dug-out style living and find everything you need underground – from rooms to stores and bars. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings, quiet, cool, dark and airy. Go on a specialised tour to explore the surrounding rugged and stunning outback. Drive over toLake Eyre, the lowest natural point in Australia at approximately 50 feet below sea level. Underground rooms are about £123 per night.


Cappadocia is a semi-arid region in central Turkey that is most famous for odd rock formations clustered in Monks Valley. Tourists go to explore Bronze Age homes carved into valley walls by cave dwellers and later used as refuges by early Christians. There are many hotels you can stay in including the Uchisar Cave Pansion, which offers hiking, horseback riding, hot air balloon tours as well as bike tours. Other popular choices are K?smet Cave House in Göreme, known for its colourful rooms, Serinn House, a small cave inn, and Cappadocia Cave Suites with folk and handicraft items as décor. Some of the 33 guest rooms even have a Jacuzzi. The rate is about £77 per night.
