The hotel is located in the immediate proximity of the most beautiful Slovak alpine lake – Strbske pleso, situated at an elevation of 1,351 m (4,432 ft) above sea level. The surroundings invite you to take part in a variety of activities, which you can do in your free time or as part of an incentive trip: long walks along the hiking paths, cycling paths, the possibility of riding in a horse coach, bungee jumping and paragliding in summer, as well as cross-country skiing tracks, downhill skiing areas, and snow scooters in winter. Furthermore, the main focus of the location is relaxation in the wonderful mountain scenery of the smallest mountains in the world, the “High Tatras”. Moreover, several UNESCO heritage sites are within one hour’s drive, from castles to churches and traditional villages.
The history of the hotel dates back to the year 1894, when the first building was completed. Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras perfectly captures the romance and charm of royal times while providing all the luxury and comfort of today. The combination of the lake, altitude and location within a National Park, where the air is famously clear and medically beneficial for individual leisure travellers or athletes with its climatic spa effect, creates uniquely ideal conditions.
