Sometimes, I look for a small gap in my daily routine to escape somewhere, connect with nature, do a digital detox, eat healthily, maybe learn something new, or be by myself and relax. Recently, I found such a place in the mountains of Armenia.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who does this, so I want to share my experience in this article. It’s about a wonderful place called Nature Rooms Cozy Cabin in the Woods, where I had an amazing time and satisfied all my detox needs.

Where is Nature Rooms’ and what is its Purpose?

The cabin is located in the Gegharkunik region, north of Lake Sevan, in Martuni Village.

Nature Rooms’ mission is to help you find inner peace, inspiration, and joy away from the noisy cities. It is about complete relaxation without man-made distractions.

It is about pausing your life for a moment to hear your inner voice, the call of your heart, and to enlighten your soul. It is about allowing yourself to just be, without busy schedules and to-do lists.

About the Founder and Her Dream

Meet Satenik Khachatryan, founder of Nature Rooms. In 2019, she left her job at an international organization to pursue her dreams.

With a master’s degree from four European universities and over 10 years of community development experience, she launched several projects in her native village of Martuni with her sister.

It took years of patience, hard work, and commitment to bring this project to life. The dream of Nature Rooms became a reality thanks to numerous people from all over the world who believed in and supported it.

Inside the guesthouse, you can see a framed sign listing the names of all the contributors. Artur Avagyan, a repatriate from Moscow, helped Satenik with the unique planning and design.

Satenik identifies herself as a perfectionist, and every single detail in the guesthouse is meticulously planned, from its concept to its design. For her, Nature Rooms is about emotions, perseverance, magic, and the love and care you feel as soon as you arrive.

How to Get to Nature Rooms in Martuni Village?

Distance from Yerevan: 130 km (81 miles)
Distance from Tbilisi: 197 km (122 Miles)

Village Martuni is part of the Chambarak unified community in the Gegharkunik region. It is often confused with the town of Martuni, also in Gegharkunik, which is over 130 km away. To ensure you reach the correct Martuni, Satenik will send you a map and a video guide upon booking.

  • Best Maps to Use: Yandex Maps works best for this area. You can locate Nature Rooms and follow the directions using this link.
  • Public Transport: A minivan runs once a day from the Northern bus station in Yerevan to Chambarak, stopping at Martuni village center, about 1.5 km from Nature Rooms.
  • Taxi: If taking a taxi from Yerevan, mention you are going to Chambarak to avoid confusion with town Martuni. Local taxis familiar with the area are also an option.
  • Driving Directions: The road from the main road to Nature Rooms is an uneven, unpaved village road. The last 200 meters are a forest road, best suited for jeeps, though sedans can manage if the road isn’t muddy. If you’re driving a sedan, you can park safely near Satenik’s house, and she will drive you to Nature Rooms.

Satenik provides full guest support from reservation to checkout, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience.

What is Around?

You can take a hiking tour to the waterfall, which is about a 2-hour hike two way.

Not far from Nature Rooms lies the medieval Old Getik Monastic Complex, also known as Karmir Yeghtsi among locals, dating back to the 9th-12th centuries. It’s about a 7-kilometer hike one way, and it’s also possible to drive most of the way and hike the last 1.5 kilometers.

Alternatively, you can drive the entire way if you have an off-road vehicle and an experienced driver. The monastic complex was buried for about 900 years after a 12th-century earthquake.

Only in the 1980s did excavations reveal this hidden treasure, where the main walls of the church are visible with carvings and columns.

According to some locals, it’s believed that Mkhitar Gosh, a renowned scholar and monastic figure, once lived there and established Goghavanq after the earthquake.
