The Serinn: New Boutique Hotel Opens in Cappadocia
For a fresh perspective on the stunning Cappadocia skyline, discover the new Serinn Hotel, a unique boutique cave hotel that integrates cutting-edge design with the intimacy of the natural caves.
Nestled in the heart of Urgup, Cappadocia, with magnificent views of the town and surrounding mountains, the Serinn is a stylish hotel with just five guest rooms: each has been individually designed by renowned Turkish architect Rifat Ergor to reflect the beauty of the caves' natural curves while maintaining a sleek and contemporary design ethos. Indeed, the caves have been lovingly restored without any structural additions, so that the hotel blends harmoniously with its natural surroundings. Elegantly furnished rooms have been designed for your utmost comfort - and to complement the tranquillity of the rural setting - with plush beds draped with fine cotton linens, fluffy towels and custom-made toiletries, as well as seamlessly integrated modern facilities that include wireless internet access.
Ideally located in one of the world's most mysterious and extraordinary landscapes, the Serinn offers spectacular views and easy access to the region's extraordinary rock formations - and whether you choose to explore on foot, horse-back, mountain bike or on one of Cappadocia's celebrated hot air balloon tours, you will not be disappointed.
The Serinn also offers sophistication in design and cuisine: celebrated Turkish chef Defne Koryϋrek combines Turkish and international flavours for a menu that make waking up a joy. Indeed, the superb culinary delights at the hotel include an enticing breakfast buffet on the terrace and an evening drink overlooking Cappadocia's dreamy moonscape.
In Turkish, "Serin" means "cool temperature"; indeed, the ancient volcanic rock of the caves, "tuffa", acts as the perfect insulation retaining a temperature of 17 - 20 degrees Celsius throughout the year, meaning it is comfortably cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
A hotel like no other in the region, the Serinn is owned and run by Ms. Eren Serpen, an Istanbul native whose personal service sets her apart. Now, after more than two decades in the international air travel and hospitality sectors, including several years at British Airways, she has returned to Turkey to open her ideal hotel in one of the world's most enchanting landscapes - thereby creating the perfect blend of seclusion, modern comfort and a sleek design ethos - there is simply no better way to experience Cappadocia.
