For the past 100 years, this iconic hotel has played a key role in Slovene history. With its authentic mix of Art Nouveau, Secession, Bauhaus, and Art Deco architecture, the Kempinski Palace Portorož combines Viennese elegance with contemporary flavor. Nestled in a historical park, the hotel dates back 1910 when Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Renovated during the mid-2000s, the hotel’s interior was masterfully restored by the Paris-based DESSEINS Interior Design Studio with Jean-Claude Laville as the head designer. Laville has created a successful symbiosis of historic architecture and modern influences throughout the Kempinski Palace Portorož. The Kempinski Palace Portorož is situated in the enchanting region of Istria. Guests can explore the most famous Slovene landmarks such as Tartini Square, the Walls of Piran, and the UNESCO-recognized Škocjan Caves. The Lipica Stud Farm is located nearby as well, which has been the cradle of all Lipizzaner horses since 1580. Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, offers its own wealth of stunning cultural attractions, such as Ljubljana Castle, The City Museum of Ljubljana, National Gallery of Slovenia, and the Dragon Bridge.
