A seriously hip hotel, a tranquil rural setting and 5 stunning rooms.
It’s rare to find such a beautifully designed, contemporary hotel in such an untouristy part of Europe. But here you have it. Soncna Hiša is a real find: swish rooms, excellent service and a wellness centre, bang in the middle of an agricultural region near the Hungarian border. And the hotel itself is buried in a unremarkable village – incongruous, to say the least.
But get your head around the location and you’ll love it. Just 2 hours east of Ljubljana, this is a gorgeous place to chill out for a few days, whether you’re after a spa weekend or a romantic getaway with your partner. The 5 luxury rooms are super cool, with sumptuous beds, fat candles, thick robes and mosaicked shower rooms. The garden is small but tranquil, and you can lounge in the outdoor Jacuzzi, heat up in the saunas or treat yourself to a range of wonderful massages. Families will love the toddlers’ play area in the garden. To stay here is to unwind and trust us, you won’t want to leave. But tear yourself away and try light Sipon wines in the vineyards, go kayaking down the River Mura, or bicycle through the rolling plains of pretty Prlekija.
