Perhaps it's a girls' (pardon me: womans' - no need to infantilize ourselves non-consensually more than the patriarchy already does) weekend away or a business trip. Maybe you're celebrating an anniversary or you're on your honeymoon (congratulations)! Whatever the reason, if you're looking for luxury hotels Slovenia, you've come to the right place - I travelled to Slovenia for three weeks and I absolutely love this beautiful country. Furthermore, I am an expert when it comes to picking the best luxury hotels. So, I've written this travel blog post to help you find the best luxury hotels Slovenia.

The Best Places To Stay In Slovenia

For such a normal country (roughly the size of New Jersey), Slovenia has so much to offer! Lake Bled is an iconic, beautiful spot that's an absolute must, and Ljubljana is one of the coolest cities in Europe - but it doesn't stop there. Where Slovenia's beauty truly lies is in the nature, you simply have to make sure you also do glamping Slovenia.

At a minimum I recommend 2 nights in Ljubljana, 3 at Lake Bled and 2 glamping Slovenia - but this will vary a bit depending on what you want to do and how long you have, whatever your time constraints and priorities, I insist you split your time in some way or another between these three musts. Thus this travel blog about Slovenia is split into three sections:

  • Luxury Hotels Ljubljana
  • Lake Bled Luxury Hotels
  • Glamping Slovenia

Grand Hotel Toplice Lake Bled ☆☆☆☆☆

If you are looking where to stay in Lake Bled, the Grand Hotel Toplice is the best Lake Bled luxury hotel. The hotel is part of the renowned Small Luxury Hotels of the World group.

Glamping Slovenia

Last, and certainly not least, glamping Slovenia. I was really impressed with Ljubljana - it's an incredible city and one of my favourites in Europe, but the real beauty of Slovenia lies in its nature. 60% of Slovenia is forest and it has 59 rivers - each clear as crystal, as blue as blue can be.

If you're anything like me, you'll want to get the most you possibly can out of nature, but you're not a fan of camping - you simply like your luxury comforts too much. That's where glamping Slovenia comes in, aka the best of both worlds: experience the breathtaking beauty that is Slovenia's nature, whilst still being pampered and getting the perfect night's sleep. Here's the best glamping Slovenia:

Big Berry ☆☆☆☆☆

Big Berry is without a doubt the best of glamping Slovenia.
