My Favourite Luxury Hotels – Tatras

The hotel:
Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras

  1. Fly to Poprad Airport
  2. Take a 10-minute taxi to Poprad-Tatry train station
  3. Ride the spectacular Tatra Electric Railway to Štrbské Pleso
  4. Walk 5 minutes to the 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.

Large rooms with a view

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.

Looking back to the hotel

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.
