This summer has seen the opening of three new hotels in some of Slovenia’s tourist hot spots. The four-star Hotel Kras opened in Postojna, in the immediate vicinity of the world-famous Postojna Caves, the largest known cave system in Slovenia.
The hotel has 24 double rooms and three superior suites, as well as a conference room which can hold up to 50 people. The hotel’s terrace offers stunning views of Nanos Plateau, an area of limestone landscape features popular with cyclists and hikers.
Room prices start from €62 per night and more information can be found at www.hotel-kras.si.
The four star Bohinj Park Resort and Spa, situated on the edge of the Triglav National Park, one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist areas, also opened this summer. The Bohinj Park Hotel has been ecologically designed to be energy efficient and have a low impact on the surrounding environment. Every element of the hotel has been designed with the environment in mind, for example, the lights are actually LED lamps which use up to 40 times less electricity than normal light bulbs. Windows in bedrooms are also fitted with sensors that shut down the air conditioning when they are open. A low-temperature regime has also been employed throughout the hotel, with under-floor heating and climate beams helping reduce the energy consumption.
The hotel has 102 standard rooms, seven luxury suites, a honeymoon suite and a presidential suite with its own terrace and outdoor pool. A wellness centre is located at the top of the hotel with a swimming pool offering panoramic views of Bohinj.
Room rates start at €69 per night and more information can be found at www.park-hotel-bohinj.si/eng.
Finally, the Hotel Špik in Gozd Martuljek, northwest Slovenia, has undergone a full refurbishment with a new building containing 56 rooms and two suites added to the original 60 rooms, which have been fully renovated. The rooms in the new wing all have balconies offering views of the Julian Alps.
The hotel is managed by the Hit Holidays group, which also offers accommodation in nearby Kranjska Gora.
