This Slovenian boutique hotel is promising a digital detox for the webcam weary

There’s a boutique hotel opening in Slovenia this year that promises a digital detox for guests, which could be just the ticket for webcam weary warriors.

Originally built in 1890, but now completely reconstructed, the 18-room adult-only Sunrose 7 will shun TVs, multimedia and other consumer electronic devices on site. Instead, it plans to entice guests with a library, scenic views of the 1000m2 garden, protected chestnut grove and local river. The Julian Alps and Triglav National Park are right on the doorstep.

So what happens if you need to get connected? When asked, the hotel owners told The Luxe Review, “WiFi is only available per request for business users or leisure guests if specifically required. Network is hidden all the time, only  switched on per request.”  

Looking for a TV? You won’t find one here…

In the 1900’s, the Sunrose 7 attracted high-profile visitors from the region, including members of the Empire’s Royal Family, and high society.

The Austro-Hungarian villa is furnished with local spruce and oak wood, has floor and wall heating and individual air conditioning. Bathrooms offer certified toiletries and eco friendly cotton bathrobes and towels.

Rooms also boast a showering experience inspired by the Savica waterfall.  

The lobby has been designed for socialising, drinks and co-working. There’s a small library corner, plus fireplace seating area. and cosy ambient draws guests to enjoy all day long. Hand-made brass chandeliers hanging from the 6 m ceiling round off the interior of the ground floor.

The Sunrose 7 celebrates local wines

A wine cellar in the basement boasts both local Slovenian and international wines along with a separate brandy corner. Wellness needs are catered for with an infinity pool, steam, finnish and IR- saunas.
