The Destination: High Tatras

Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras

If you feel like you need a break from busy city life and dream of long weekend surrounded by nature, Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras in Strbske Pleso, Slovakia, is the right place for you. This luxurious 5 star hotel is built inside 3 beautiful historical buildings, the oldest one dating back to 1893. It might seem far away from everywhere, but if you are visiting this part of Europe, it is surelly worth the drive. You can spoil yourself with spa treatment, explore local food at hotel’s restaurant and bars, take long walks, enjoy boating on the lake in summer and skying in winter, or maybe even have a wedding here! My favourite feature of this hotel is swimming pool overlooking the glacial mountain lake and panorama of High Tatras. Theres nothing more cosy than sitting in a huge lounge chair at the pool, wearing bathrobe and watching mountains with a snow outside. I sank into my lounge and fell to sleep immediately.
