With its majestic mountains, pretty coastline, historic towns, exceptional nature and accessible Central European location, Slovenia is a destination which offers everything within its relatively small borders. Meetings and incentive travel is on the rise in Slovenia and the high-quality accommodation options are keeping pace with the rise in demand for events, conferences and meetings. The next couple of years will see a number of excellent additions to the already vibrant Slovenian hospitality scene.
Looking to organise your meetings or events in luxurious and pristine nature? It would be hard to beat 5-star Vila Planinka , which opened its doors in 2019 in Jezersko, just 30 minutes from Ljubljana airport, but a world away in terms of ambience. This oasis of tranquillity offers an escape from the pressures of modern-day living against a backdrop of stunning mountains and adventure tourism options. In order to facilitate the natural way of life, there is no WiFi or plug sockets in the rooms.
More than a century after its opening in 1906, the hotel with the longest running tradition in Bohinj, Sunrose 7, will reopen its doors in summer 2019 after a complete renovation. The boutique hotel that once hosted high-profile visitors, including the Austro-Hungarian royal family members, now features 18 rooms in alpine chic style, library by the fireplace, a private garden of 1600 sqm and a dinning capacity of up to 36 guests. Suitable for smaller groups with an option for private use, the Sunrose 7 spoils guests with incredible views of Triglav national park and local delicacies.
2020 will bring the opportunity to experience the famous Lipizzaner horses close up as a unique event location, as Hotel Maestoso in Lipica completes its renovation. Located a short drive from Trieste and Portorož, Lipica offers a range of incentive activities, including horse whispering, horse carriage competition, dinning in a stable close to the Lipizzaner horses and a golf course close by.
