For your global itinerary:
- Les Hautes Roches, Rochecorbon (“From $252 for a double.”)
- Alexander’s Boutique Hotel of Oia, Santorini (“180-degree views of the Aegean Sea.”)
- The Laleh Kandovan, International Rocky Hotel, Kandovan (“Rooms once hid residents from invading Mongols.”)
- The Caves, Negril (“All-inclusive rates start at $798 for double rooms during high season.”)
- Cuevas Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, Guadix (“Once sheltered those fleeing the Spanish Inquisition. Now they house half the town’s population.”)
- Kelebek Hotel, Göreme (“Views of—and rooms carved out of—the rock formations known as ‘fairy chimneys’.”)
What are self-respecting, miserly, monadic troglodytes like you and I supposed to do when word like this from Afar* starts getting out?
Somehow, though, I think the panoramic views place isn’t doing the cave thing quite right. Caves that “make you feel like you’ve taken a vow of chicness”? No, thanks.
