Kempinski Hotels & Resorts

Nestled in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, Poiana Brasov is a fairy tale brought to life. The understated ski resort will be home to the first Kempinski hotel in Romania, bringing our signature European elegance to the Transylvanian Alps.

Thick spruce forests criss-crossed with hiking and biking trails blanket the surrounding hillsides, a playground for active visitors in the summer months. When winter falls, 24 km of uncrowded slopes lure skiers and snowboarders.

Behind a contemporary façade, this elegant hideaway promises a minimal, naturalistic aesthetic, with flowing organic lines, natural materials and interiors that reflect the forest and highland landscape.

Romania’s cultural heritage is celebrated in three dining outlets, while the healing powers of the mountain environment are channelled through immersive wellbeing experiences in the spa and wellness centre.

Guests can choose from 120 rooms and suites, for a luxurious moment in this picturesque pocket of Romania.

Hotel set to become the first five-star hospitality project in the year-round resort of Poiana Brasov.

Situated in the mountains of central Romania, Kempinski Hotels reveals the latest addition to its European constellation: a contemporary ski resort that will transform the town of Poiana Brasov into a must-visit destination for trail-blazing travellers. With 120 guestrooms, Kempinski Poiana Brasov mountain resort will be the first five-star hotel in the Transylvania region and the debut Kempinski address in Romania.

The EUR 70 million project marks Bucharest-based developer Rock Holding’s first foray into the luxury hospitality space after successfully developing a collection of high-end residential projects in the Romanian capital.

A collection of 120 lakeside rooms and suites in the main hotel will be augmented by extensive spa and wellness facilities that will tap into the healing powers of the mountain landscape, while three dining outlets will showcase the flavours of the Romanian and international cuisine. A conference centre and events space with stunning mountain views provide a blank canvas for spectacular corporate events and summer weddings.

Behind a sleek, contemporary façade, the hotel promises a minimal, naturalistic aesthetic, with natural building materials, flowing organic lines and interiors that reflect the landscape of the Carpathian Mountains.

Poiana Brasov is a gateway to some of the most spell-binding landscape in Central Europe and a magnet for outdoor afficionados. During the long summer days, well-marked trails between lush spruce forests and mountain meadows blanketed in wildflowers draw hikers, cyclists and horse riders, while the snowy peaks lure skiers and snowboarders from across Europe each winter.

Guests staying at Kempinski Poiana Brasov mountain resort will have direct access to almost 24 kilometres of ski slopes on the flanks of the Postăvarul Massif, one of the most picturesque areas of wilderness in Central Europe. The nearby medieval city of Brasov is home to gothic churches, cobbled streets and baroque townhouses that evoke the essence of Transylvania. In less than 45 minutes, guests can reach some of the other must-see sights of Romania, including Bran Castle, home of Count Dracula, the fairy-tale spires of Peles Castle and the mighty walls of Rasnov Fortress.

Direct flights from cities including Dubai, London, Brussels, Barcelona, Munich, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv and Geneva serve the new Brasov-Ghimbav International Airport, a 30-minute drive from the hotel, while the larger Bucharest International Airport can be reached in 2.5 hours.
