Bled's biggest hotel reopening after EUR 8m renovation


The epidemiological uncertainty of travel and the government-sponsored tourism vouchers available to all Slovenians will have an effect on the structure of guests in Bled.

Whereas the lakeside town is usually just a day trip destination for Slovenians, who account for no more than 5% of overnights, this year, the reservations suggest that about a half of the guests will be Slovenian this summer.

Sava Hoteli Bled head Mojca Krašovec told the press yesterday that Park Hotel will reach 50% capacity in July. Another Sava Bled hotel, the Grand Hotel Toplice, is expected to open in mid-July, while the opening of the rest of its hotels will depend on demand.

In mid-June, the Zaka camping site, also operated by Sava, has reopened, generating a lot of interest. It is currently hosting about 400 guests.

Krašovec said that more or less the entire Sava Hoteli Bled staff would return to work on 1 July, however some will be helping out on the coast, where the Sava group is relaunching another renovated hotel, Slovenia's biggest, the Histrion.

The renovation of the Park Hotel set Sava back EUR 8 million. Starting in autumn, the renovation was completed amidst the coronavirus epidemic in Slovenia. To address the changed circumstances, the hotel has introduced a number of safety and additional hygiene measures.

All guests will receive a personal protection set at check in, including a mask and disinfectant. Moreover, the staff will frequently be disinfecting the rooms, while thermal cameras have been installed at the front desk to check the guests' temperature.
