Kempinski Hotels unveiled plans for its first 5-star hotel in Romania that will be developed in the Poiana Brașov mountain resort.
The new hotel will feature 120 rooms and will be augmented by an extensive spa and wellness facilities. It will also include three dining outlets and spaces for events. The hotel will be developed in partnership with Romanian real estate company Rock Holding following an investment of €70 million.
“Poiana Brașov is without doubt one of the most attractive parts of Romania and holds great development potential,” says Mircea Cotiga, CEO and Founder of Rock Holding.
The hotel guests will have direct access to almost 24 kilometres of ski slopes on the flanks of the Postăvarul Massif and will be able to visit the historical Brașov city.
“From snow-packed winter ski holidays to adventurous summer escapes, Poiana Brasov provides a year-round destination for outdoor pursuits,” adds Bernold Schroeder, Chief Executive Officer of Kempinski Group and Chairman of the Management Board of Kempinski AG.
In less than 45 minutes, guests can reach some of the other must-see sights of Romania, including Bran Castle, Peleș Castle and Râșnov Fortress.
Direct flights from cities including Dubai, London, Brussels, Barcelona, Munich, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv and Geneva serve the new Brașov-Ghimbav International Airport, a 30-minute drive from the hotel. The larger Bucharest International Airport can be reached in 2.5 hours.
