Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras
You are now in one of my favourite luxury hotels in Slovakia. With a Lake View room you can sit on your balcony and marvel at the Štrbské Pleso lake and Tatras Mountains, which rise up to 2,655m.
After a day of following well-marked trails mountains (many of which pass close to the hotel), you can ease your aches in the chandelier-strewn spa. Here you can enjoy views over the mountains through which you walked, while soaking in a hot tub, sweating in a sauna, or swimming the 16-metre pool. This spa is worth the journey here alone and I must have spent many hours here gawping at the view.
Meals – including breakfast – are served in the elegant Grand Restaurant. There’s something very special about enjoying Champagne with your breakfast in a large room warmed by a massive fireplace at one end and furnished with pale wood beams above.
I particularly liked how I could stagger into the pristine reception, covered in dirt from scrambling up rocks, and the staff didn’t even bat an eyelid.
I’ve seen prices for as low as £159/night. Combine this with a £30 return flight from London, a £12 return taxi journey, and a return train ticket for just over £3, you could have a 5* ultra-luxurious 3 day spa/hiking break in the mountains for only £522.
