NEW! Hotel Bohinj

Hotel Bohinj has been built on site of the former Kompas Hotel, in the heart of Julian Alps, raised up on a plateau on the edge of Lake Bohinj. It is one of the hotels bought by Damian Merlak, who stands behind the highly wished renovation projects in Bohinj. He already renovated Apartments Triglav; famous Hotel Zlatorog is the in line and as the last one Ski hotel Vogel on the top of ski resort Vogel will be renovated.

Hotel Bohinj features 69 rooms in light larch wood. Each room has a silhouette of Triglav – Slovenian highest peak. They have a modern ethnic inspiration, which takes patterns, details and materials from the Bohinj tradition. Rooms differ in size, from double, triple to family rooms. Most of them have a balcony. On the top floor, a superior room with a jacuzzi has been arranged. here is a superior room with a jacuzzi.

Long common corridors represent a walk through the construction of the Bohinj hayrack known as “toplar”. These traditional monuments of Slovenian craftsmanship can be found in the villages around the hotel. The walk to the room offers guests a unique experience of walking through these unique structures that are present only in Slovenia. The geometry, recreated on the carpet floor, on the ceiling and wall coverings is not only a design feature, but also a form of request for visitors and locals to protect cultural heritage. 

The common area includes a two-level entrance lobby, a restaurant, a conference room and a club. The interior has been uniquely designed by Slovenian craftsmen. Chairs, benches, curtains, upholstery, even lights are unique products of Slovenian companies, which were interpreted in their own way especially for this hotel. The intimate lights represent branches, while chairs are made from felt produced of recycled plastic bottles. Larch wood is the main material used for walls, furniture and ceiling. Floors in common areas are made of terrazzo that has a light grey color of surrounding rocks. Large black stone traces leading to the entrance and the hotel lobby remain in the memory of the famous Mr. Max, the legendary hotel cat that resided in the former hotel and one day suddenly disappeared. The hotel also has a spacious garden with a large fireplace for events.

The vision of Alpinia is to become an example of excellent socially responsible business practice based on creativity, youthful enthusiasm and understanding of the vision of Slovenian tourism.
