1. Argos in Cappadocia, Cappadocia
How about some priceless moments alone together, away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, with a little bit of thrill thrown in? The semi-arid region of Cappadocia is a geological wonder that is said to resemble the landscape of the moon.
To experience all of Cappadocia in one place, Argos in Cappadocia is the one-stop-shop for all things romantic. You can idle away your moments together sipping on wine from their vineyard, wading in your personal suite pool, and exploring stone caves and underground tunnels, all the while enjoying some stunning vistas of the wondrous region.’
What’s more, the hotel has been awarded as a global forerunner for its romantic amenities and curated experiences.
Every morning, as the sun begins to rise in Cappadocia, colourful hot air balloons rise up from the ground and dot the sky. You can hop into one of these balloons for a tailor-made personal flight, and a magical morning for two. A bird’s-eye view of Cappadocia from a sea of balloons is an unmissable experience.

Very much like the river, which gives you the experience of being in two continents at once, the hotel gives you a chance to have some stolen moments while experiencing the hubbub of this large city.

The property is beautifully lit in the evenings, and you can have a romantic dinner watching the yachts and boats sailing by. A short distance away from the hotel is the Bosphorus Bridge, where you can take a walk or drive across to drink in the sights of the city from afar.
The hotel has another property at Sultanahmet, which is closer to the city’s tourist attractions, but further from the Bosphorus.
