As promised in my article about Piran & Portoroz from last week, I’ll write about my hotel tips in this region today & in another post about my restaurant & leisure time tips.
So, let’s start with the most luxurious hotel in this region, the Kempinski Palace in Portoroz.
KEMPINSKI PALACE PORTOROZ
The wonderful hotel is located directly in the centre of Portoroz and offers a fantastic view at the sea. You can truly feel the history in this palace. Just imagine, Archduke Franz Ferdinand already led the waltz in the grand ballroom during the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. Nowadays this one of a kind palace is a luxurious hotel with the old world all around, where every guest still feels like a princess or prince. Isn’t that fantastic !?
This one of a kind hotel offers everything your luxury loving heart desires. Wonderful luxurious & spacious rooms & suites and direct sea view. You can choose between rooms in the historic palace part or the modern part. Both parts of the hotel are absolutely wonderful.
Since the 13th century Portoroz has been famous for its rich spa tradition. Today the Kempinski Palace Rose Spa, a pure oasis of tranquillity situated on 1500 sq m, offers well-known luxury brands, revitalizing treatments, connected indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Jacuzzis, Turkish, Finnish and infrared saunas. Everything you need for a perfect spa day.
The lavish breakfast buffet in the magnificent Crystal Ballroom is one of the culinary highlights of the hotel. Here you’ll find everything you need for a perfect elongated breakfast. (you can have breakfast until 12:00!!)
It’s also a must to enjoy top-class culinary creations in the restaurant Sophia, dedicated to the miraculous beauty of the Italian diva Sophia Loren or modern cuisine and delicious pastries in the wonderful restaurant Fleur de Sel. Fleur de Sel is making a name for itself for its fusion of wonderful food and a laid-back lifestyle.
LIFE CLASS HOTELS
GRAND HOTEL PORTOROZ
The wonderful Grand Hotel Portoroz is located directly in the centre of the small town and in direct vicinity to the wonderful Adriatic Sea. Wonderful newly renovated rooms that combine elegance, tradition of salt panning and the history of Piran, a prestigious private beach, the sun bathing terrace, top quality Mediterranean gastronomy and experienced staff with traditional Mediterranean hospitality are welcoming you here. 5 star luxury at it’s best. The hotel is directly connected with the Terme & Wellness LifeClass that offers the most comprehensive spa, medical and wellness offer in Europe. I’ll talk about the Life Class Spa in my next article. It truly is one of the most amazing spas I’ve ever been to.
A visit to the patisserie here at Grand Hotel Portoroz is a must! They serve the best cakes in town. I’m still dreaming of these;)
A totally refurbished unique active wellness hotel. All rooms have been refurbished with love and now offer beautiful modern styled rooms & suites, which are all inspired by one typical Mediterranean herb. You also have the possibility of room training in the spacious rooms & can easy easily rent training equipment from the hotel.

This lovely hotel is located above the main promenade of Portoroz. Its comfortable rooms and the nearby pine tree garden make it an ideal choice for families. A covered passage connects the hotel to the Terme & Wellness LifeClass and the refurbished swimming pools.

A covered passage leads to the Terme & Wellness LifeClass where various well-being centres and swimming pools with the thermal Prehistoric Sea are located.
The LifeClass gastronomy is full of Mediterranean character and plays with the aromas of Mediterranean herbs, such as rosemary, basil, sage and thyme, etc. The sea and earth offer a wealthy selection of Mediterranean delicacies that are carefully prepared by their top-class chefs and cooks for their guests health and well-being.

This 4 star hotel is located in lovely Piran. As already mentioned in my last article, whenever you crave for some peaceful rest, the company of pleasant people, and warm hospitality, Piran is just the place for you. Its rich history and narrow alleys which will draw you right in are filled with interesting stories, lovely people & the wonderful Mediterranean spirit.
The hotel is directly located by the sea and offers the most wonderful view at the sea and the picturesque town of Piran.
I would recommend to stay at one of the newly refurbished suites, which offer you unique 4 star standard with a one of a kind sea view directly from your bed.
Hotel Piran pampers their guests with a huge breakfast buffet which offer everything a breakfast-loving-heart desires. You can also enjoy a perfect affordable and comfortable dinner experience here. Treat yourself with a romantic a la carte dinner for two with a wonderful view at the sea.

The highlight of the hotel truly is the rooftop terrace. It offers one of the most wonderful views over the lovely town, the sea and if the weather is perfect you can even see the Italian coast from up here. This terrace is the perfect place for sundowners. When ever you are Piran, a visit is a must! Enjoy the most wonderful sunsets from up here. Tip: For all the lovers out there, you can book this wonderful terrace for your romantic engagement or even your wedding ceremony. It truly is a one of a kind location!
**note: Portoroz is actually spelled Portorož or Portorose, but due to my theme here it’s not nicely displayed, that’s why I wrote it without the “ž” ;)
