The Aquatio Cave Luxury Hotel & SPA in Matera, Southern Italy, is one of the most unusual hotels to open in 2018. Carved into a tufa ridge in the city’s Sasso Caveoso district, this 5-star hotel is just a short walk from Sassi di Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city of Matera, famous for its stone-carved churches, was also recently awarded the European Capital of Culture 2019.
The hotel uniquely consists of a network of intricate caves and is decorated with minimalistic white furniture, craggy limestone walls, domed archways and secret nooks.
The spa comes with saunas, sensory showers, hammams and an indoor infinity pool carved into the rock. Treatments are available for an additional fee.
The restaurant serves traditional Basilicata cuisine and there is secluded outdoor seating (weather dependant). There is also a bar.
The rooms are modelled on ancient grottos with a modern twist. Wi-Fi is free.
