The magic of the past for the perfect pleasure of the present
The Otočec Castle, first mentioned in 1252, has undergone many transformations in its eight-century long history. It was owned by numerous noble families. Nowadays it is ideal for romantic holiday pampering, fairytale-like weddings and other ceremonies, gourmets, and businessmen as well. Its uniquely renovated atmosphere in the spirit of Gothic and Renaissance offers the guests the comfort of a five star hotel. There are 16 rooms available in the castle for topmost accommodation, including four suites and two royal suites. In the Castle Restaurant the cooks under the guidance of the chef Dejan Pavlič take care of the culinary experiences, with which they link the cultural gastronomy heritage of the Dolenjska region with the modern perceptions and achievements in the culinary field.
