The Meetings Star Award has been awarded for the past twelve years by the editorial board of Kongres Magazine and Conventa to the best destinations, meeting hotels and individuals. The gala ceremony for the winners will take place on Tuesday, 22 February 2022 at 17.00 online.

Before the event in February, it is our honour to present the best convention centres in the seventh category – BEST SLOVENIAN BOUTIQUE MEETING HOTELS.

We have defined boutique meeting hotels as hotels that offer less than 50 hotel rooms and smaller congress capacities. 12 hotels were evaluated in this category, their average final mark being 4.79. Boutique Slovenian hotels achieved the highest marks in our evaluation, presenting themselves as an intriguing segment of the congress offer. They are appreciated most by incentive organisers and organisers of smaller corporate events.

WINNER: SUNROSE 7 – Heritage Boutique Hotel
Final Mark: 4.95

If we were to judge by Hotel Sunrose 7, Bohinj is set for a tourism resurrection. With the addition of the hotel, the destination shifted focus to authentic tourism with a high added value. The hotel succeeded in its endeavour by implementing countless details that tell the tale of its history and destination. The hotel deserves the top spot in our evaluation because of the youthful and highly professional staff. The signature breakfast is a reason on its own to visit the hotel. They received the certificate “Bohinjsko” for their breakfast, which signifies that all ingredients are being produced locally. Even though the hotel does not offer classic conference halls, in reality, demanding clients no longer look for them. Instead, they appreciate special venues the hotel certainly does not lack. The wine cellar, for instance, is where guests can enjoy wine degustations or focus on work. Alternatively, the hotel’s magical garden can become an outdoor lecture hall in warmer months. The hotel cafe and lobby seem to have been made for unconventional meetings. Sunrose 7 is the first hotel in Slovenia to offer an original digital detox that entails no mobile phones, televisions, wi-fi or other disturbing devices. The hotel claimed the title of the top boutique meeting primarily because it practices what it preaches. Moreover, it returned to its essence – exquisite cuisine, friendly staff and a sense of homeliness. Hidden gems like this can positively transform an entire destination and blow the whistle on unsustainable mass tourism.
