At night it hulks high above the landscape like an ancient glowing temple that wants to transport you back 1000 years. Staring back down from one of its ramparts, the backlit rock formations create a mystical lunar landscape that by day is achingly raw in its beauty. Moving around inside the Cave Resort, the time-machine revs back and forward. The hewn rock walls keep you locked in the ancient, while technology brings you back to now. A range of treatments in the cave-like Leea Spa urge you to drift off into no-time, but we are left to wonder - whose idea was the karaoke bar? Fortunately, between massages and in-room Jacuzzis there is enough cave luxury to keep this a wholly avoidable option. Stick to Turkish cuisine in the Padishah Restaurant and odd little east Asian encounters like the Yoshi Sushi Bar will not take you out of Cappadocia.
