A five-star hotel has 40 rooms, two restaurants, and a SPA. The place for slowing down, uniting with nature, and immersing in refined Carpathian authenticity.
The hotel building offers a 360-degree view of the Carpathian landscape. You can see a different part of the mountain slopes from the windows of each room. The building is organically integrated into the landscape and resembles a rock with cascades of plants. Local trees, grasses, strawberries, and blackberries decorate the facade, hotel terraces, and balconies. Plants change in the same way as it occurs in nature: some grow at the foot of the mountain, others at the slop and the top.
One of the design features of HAY is a metal swimming pool on the 6th floor of the hotel. One part of the water path is indoors, and the other lies in the open space where you can enjoy the view through the end side of the pool made of glass. The bottom of the pool has round portholes opening into the ceiling of the lower floor corridor. Thus, the fifth floor corridor became the HAY’s most Instagrammable place.
