As far as spa resorts go, sometimes it seems that if you’ve tried one, you’ve tried them all. Discovering a place like Slovenia’s Rogaška Slatina - a destination famed for its peaceful setting, wondrous water, and historic relevance - is all the more exciting. After all, if the rumors are true, and people have been coming here for five centuries in search of rest and relaxation, why would one question our ancestors’ wisdom?
Guests to this area - especially history buffs – are in good company at Hotel Aleksander, whose original building has played host to famous individuals like the Austrian emperor, Ferdinand; the Yugoslav King, Peter; and the famous composer, Franz Liszt since 1905. How’s that for name-dropping?
Suites, apartments, and a luxurious rooftop apartment are available at Hotel Aleksander, where windows open to fragrant fresh air and an exquisite climate. No need to worry about your waistline here, by the way, since health food has been a priority as far back as 1909.
