Soncna Hisa

Banovci, Prlekija, Slovenia


  • Indulge yourself at the in-house wellness centre. There's a whole host of treatments to try out, 2 types of sauna (Finnish and bio-herbal), an outdoor Jacuzzi and various loungers to stretch out on and doze. The room is tranquil, both in décor and atmosphere, and robes, slippers, drinks and towels are provided (be warned though, the Ayurvedic hot-oil massage is a naked one, something we weren't expecting!)

  • Take a thermal spa; the region is famous for its natural hot springs, and the nearest one is in the village

  • Read a book on the outdoor terrace, have a coffee and chat to other guests in the lounge, or retreat to your suite to watch TV

  • Explore the region; although this side of Slovenia is less well known and not as spectacular as the Soca Valley, there's still plenty to do. Go for a picnic on Love Island, visit the local vineyards for some wine tasting (the local Sipon grape is wonderful), or go to a stables and see the beautiful palomino Lipizzan horses. Reception can organise bespoke day trips with excellent guides, as well as golf, fishing and hot-air balloon rides

  • Borrow a bike and explore independently. You can pedal right to the river and take the traditional cable ferry over to Love Island, or go kayaking and rafting down the rapids

  • Go hiking; the flat plains offer excellent walking by the river, through forests, and via the small but picturesque villages of the Prlekija region

Save to favouritesPrintMailSoncna HisaIt'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 [r:SV003: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. [kids:SV003: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.
