Enjoy these real hard rock hotels.
Beckham creek cave lodge

Don your finest tiger print and embrace your inner Flintstone as we showcase the world’s finest cave-based digs. Thankfully, troglodyte dwellings have improved a little over the last few millennia, and our array of rocky retreats is less rubble, more resplendent.

It turns out being stuck between a rock and a hard place isn’t so bad with a California King and private pool.

Yabba-dabba-do.

Caves may not be the first thing that springs to mind when considering Southern Italy. Sextantio will most definitely change that. The town is the result of thousands of years of human development, earning it the honor of being a UNESCO world heritage site. The once simple caves have been transformed over the centuries into a structured town with churches, homes, and palaces.

Sextantio looks plucked from a fairytale. The hotel comprises sixteen unique rooms built deep into the rock and an ancient church that’s now a communal area. Each unique chamber is remarkable, the largest of which covers 130 square meters and celebrates its location with minimalist elegance. 

Dinners in the centuries-old church are a dramatic highlight, along with a delightful list of activities to enjoy the Italian countryside, including wine tastings, guided nature and history tours, cooking lessons, and many others.

There’s a reason we’ve all dressed up as cowboys at one time or another. They’re cool. Even at 30, it’s still cool. If you’re still unsure, Capitol Reef Resort will at least make sure your experience of the Old West is a little comfier than the original pioneers.

The stunning old-time wagons are framed by the rock formations of Utah, and inside is the highest form of glamping imaginable. If you don’t feel like camping, you can just head inside to the luxury hotel across the site, but come on, you’re a cowboy. Get out there.
