Hotel Plesnik, where you will be staying, has a great position at the center of this beautiful valley and offers an amazing view of the nearby mountains and the stunning Palenk waterfall. All rooms are equipped with wooden furniture and designed in a mixture of modern and old styles.

Rooms

The body calms down. The soul is awakened, revived, and alive. The magic view of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps seen from the hotel rooms fascinates and enchants.

Thoughtful modern architectural design is reflected throughout the hotel and in every detail of the hotel rooms, yet a sense of familiarity and the spatial identity of this unique valley has been retained.

Vila Palenk - Annex building

In the shadow of the hotel, but still bathed in sunlight, slightly obscured by treetops and yet with a strong presence; this is Vila Palenk. Vila Palenk is a pleasant and comfortable outbuilding, built in an alpine style, connected to the hotel by a covered passage that protects guests from all weather conditions.

At first glance, though small in size, the villa is deceptively spacious and comfortable and offers a distinctly homely experience. It features 11 spacious rooms, each with its own individual character, providing everything guests need for a comfortable stay. A family apartment is also available. Each room has the following amenities:

  • Bathroom with shower
  • Most rooms have balconies

The rooms were totally renovated in December 2018.

Program

You will start your day either with meditation, pranayama exercise or silent walks in the forest. Each morning will bring something different. After these activities, you can help yourself with a cup of tea or coffee, after which, continue with a 75-minute yoga class of stretching and asanas to enjoy the day with some action and good exercise.

You'll sure need a wholesome breakfast after such an active morning, don't you? An organic breakfast is made with local products from nearby farms, and you also have vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan options.

During the day, you can choose between various activities. Hiking trips, all well organized, include being accompanied by Tomo, a local and international guide, and, also, a yoga teacher.

You are also free to explore the area on your own if you wish. You can choose all ranges of walks, from though mountaineering to gentle walks in the forest. One day during the retreat, they will organize a cycling tour in the valley. If you are tired and you want to just spend some quiet time by yourself, you can choose to relax in the Eco Wellness Spa with panoramic views of the Slovenian Alps or experience some Ayurvedic Treatments and massages.

Before dinner, you can join another yoga session, more restorative, with the support of yoga bolsters, during a guided gentle yoga sequence. After dinner, you are free to return to the wellness center or spend time chatting by the outdoor campfire, weather permitting. Going to bed early is also a good idea after such a full day. Doubtless, this long yoga weekend retreat will leave you feeling rejuvenated, full of energy, and coming back to yourself.

Even if you are not practicing yoga, they will help you learn something new, a very useful skill in your life of how to help yourself and relax on your own. All yoga levels, including beginners and more skillful or advanced practitioners, are welcome. Working as a team, the two yoga teachers, Tomo and Tjaša, will accommodate everyone and find a pace and space for all.
