On 26 December, the Sparkling Wine Festival will take place in the Crystal Hall of Kempinski Palace Portorož. Guests will be able to taste different sparkling wines from providers in the region. Simultaneously, the renowned sommeliers will announce the winner among the sparkling wines. For all music lovers, we have a treat prepared this year; a famous Slovene acapella group Perpetuum Jazzile will sing a few songs for all guests.


Christmas is a time for giving, and this festive season will also bring a charitable touch. In the hotel lobby, Kempinski Palace Portorož has, as tradition has it, a special Christmas tree. The Kempinski Giving Tree will be decorated with vouchers of a certain value, which guests can buy and contribute by donation to children from socially disadvantaged families in the region. The collected money will help Kempinski Palace Portorož to buy presents for over 40 children from socially disadvantaged families in the area.


Christmas is not only the time of giving and family but also a time of hustle and bustle and stress. It is important to make some time for yourself, to relax and rejuvenate the body. Rose Spa at Kempinski Palace Portorož has prepared an invigorating pampering for the body and soul. An aromatic 60-minute treatment for glowing and silky skin will elate the body and give the skin a festive glow, which will light up every evening dress! The winter HUR for the glowing and silky skin evening ritual starts at EUR 99 for 60 minutes.
