Aya Kapadokya | Hotel
Aya Kapadokya is one of the finest existing examples of Anatolian Greek architecture in Cappadocia. Nestled behind the beautiful facade and amazing outdoor spaces, the twelve room boutique hotel is also home to ancient cave dwellings, grand arched rooms, a chapel, two subterranean wineries and much more. Every room, regardless of size or location, is installed with the same high-end furnishings and amenities.
When we began excavation of the property in 2016, our goal was to create a family retreat. Shortly after excavation began, we made an important discovery that changed the course of our mission. A photograph from 1924 showed Aya Kapadokya before the building collapsed into rubble and ruin. What we once believed to be a humble structure was actually a multi-story mansion. From that point onward, our goal was to restore Aya Kapadokya to her former glory. With precision, loyalty and love, we took great care in preserving the site. Only historically accurate methods and materials were used for the restoration. In fact, nearly every portion of the structure was repaired by hand.
Our guests have access to three beautiful outdoor spaces. The garden level is the perfect spot to lounge in the sun or simply meditate. Our second level veranda is home to Masal Restaurant and Bar. The space offers panoramic views of the valley. It is the perfect spot to enjoy to enjoy wine at dusk. Like the veranda, our terrace level has spectacular panoramic views. Additionally, the terrace is the perfect vantage point for viewing hot air balloons at sunrise.
