About Hotel Plesnik
Hotel Plesnik is an Alpine hotel in the heart of the regional park, a small family boutique hotel with over 80 years of experience in the hotel industry. The history of the Hotel Plesnik reveals a story of family, love, tradition and a passion for socializing in one of Europe’s most beautiful Alpine valleys. Hotel Plesnik’s elm tree embodies their journey – it is one of the symbols of the Logar Valley and represents a bridge between the generations. There are deep roots, the Plesnik family originally owned a hotel in the near vicinity of the current one before the Second World War. The foundation of their project was a small post-war inn that was transformed into a new hotel between 1992 and 1994. It was the following year of 1995 that saw the grand opening and the hotel quickly became synonymous with the modern comfort and familiarity of a countryside house, as well as a boutique family hotel.
A new renovation came in 2015/16 and in carrying out the refurbishment the spirit of local tradition, the predominant feature is wood. The solid parquet flooring gives you a feeling of warmth and coziness, which continues in the furniture with their modern inserts in elegant white. Bright tones and designer furnishings are the norm throughout, the rooms now boast an ultra modern shower with geometrically shaped tiles in pastel brown. As a whole, the renovated hotel rooms feel very elegant, with well thought-out lighting and original pieces that will be especially noticeable in the winter days.
This hotel is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.

In the shadow of the hotel, but still covered with sunlight, slightly obscured by the treetops and yet with a strong presence is Villa Palenk (3*). It is a pleasant and comfortable outbuilding, built in the Alpine-style, connected with the hotel by a covered passage, which protects guests from all weather inconveniences. The villa offers a distinctly homely experience with 11 spacious rooms, each with its own individual character - rooms can be arranged to provide family apartments.
Facilities: High quality food with fresh local products is an important value; covered with flowering meadows and green forests and away from everyday hustle and bustle, the Logar Valley is in culinary terms a challenge for every chef. However, they use as many local and organically grown ingredients and products from the surrounding idyllic mountain farms as possible, following local recipies. All the food is cooked with sensual sophistication and love, without any artificial additives.
The restaurant presents a mix of a la carte and buffet options and its large fireplace, which in the long cold winter gently and subtly brings warmth and peace. Opposite the elegance of the restaurant there is the Hunter's room, a dinning room designed in a distinct alpine style with wooden floors, wood-lined walls and ceiling, artfully constructed wooden chairs that proudly show forms of tradition and subtle lighting of the room shape a friendly and familiar atmosphere. On a beautiful sunny day, no matter the time of year, the spacious hotel terrace is perfect for relaxing, catching sunlight and enjoying a good cup of coffee. The direct view across the meadow on to the striking, mighty mountains of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps will enchant you.
Hotel Plesnik is the perfect choice for hiking but if you are feeling less active guests also have wellness options, an indoor swimming pool with panoramic window offering magnificent views to the mountain peaks, a sauna, solarium and massage.
Wellness Centre: an intimate and exclusive experience that will fill you with fresh energy. Preserved nature means a lot so they renovated the wellness centre following sustainable development and environmental conservation. Here they have created ‘to die for’ views and an architectural design that has no match in Slovenia. There are three different saunas, whirlpool with massage seats, outdoor natural swimming pool, a rest area and panoramic window wall with the view on the peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Gravel-stone covered walls define the sauna experience in the basement and subtle lighting aids you in relaxing. An Ayurveda master will take care of all your knots and bring you to a state of Zen. There is no chlorine in the biological outdoor pool and you truly feel like you’re swimming in an Alpine lake with an amazing view of the summits of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps.
