It is important for us to offer alternative forms of entertainment during the ski season according to guests’ national customs by organising such thematic events along with the hotel facilities we have on site, like our Kempinski The Spa, variety of bars and the free Kids Club for the families. We are already planning our new festivity season with more added value packages with cultural experience to ensure pleasant holidays for our guests combining ski and culture”.
