HERO Slovenia Hotel Grad Otocec Exterior


The only castle situated on a river islet in Slovenia, this Gothic masterpiece is set among a seriously gorgeous landscape. Halfway between Zagreb and Ljubljana it’s an ideal stopping point for those heading toward one of these historic cities. But stay a while and you’ll find so much here to entice.

Otočec Castle is the ultimate getaway for a romantic stay, offering peace and tranquility in an authentic castle filled with character. Inviting guests to slow down, the hotel’s magical setting puts wellbeing and connection at the heart. Whether that be a morning walk in the idyllic surrounds, teeing off at one of the best European golf courses or an evening sampling some fantastic local wine in the on-site winery, there’s something for everyone here.



Restored from a Medieval manor to a Renaissance residence and now a boutique luxury hotel, this gothic castle is something to behold: Red roof tiles, tall turrets and warms stone walls encase a rich history. Rooms are vast with grand beds, plush furnishings and serene river views that provide a haven of tranquillity after a day spent exploring this diverse and beautiful landscape. Rich golds, earthy tones, and polished wood add warmth to the castle’s original features, ensuring your stay is steeped in both luxury and authenticity.

Arguably its main attraction, the Castle Restaurant is deeply rooted in local, fresh and delicious ingredients – many of which are grown on site. The hunting lodge decor with crackling fires provide a romantic setting for a quiet dinner. In the kitchen traditional Slovenian dishes have been enhanced by the skilled chefs to create a fine dining experience and, when paired with a bottle from their extensive wine collection, make for an unbeatable evening.
