How to spend a perfect birthday at the Hotel Harnaś

Welcome to luxurious Hotel Harnaś located in the Podhale region. Hotel Harnas is a place for people with passion for design, architecture, nature and delicious food. Located in Bukowina Tatrzanska, only a few kilometres from Zakopane.

19th March is my favorite day – my birthday. Every time I try to spend this day with family and friends by doing something special. Last year I had a chance to celebrate at the Hotel Hilton in Niagara Falls.  This year I have decided to relax far away from the city in the most beautiful area in Poland – Tatras mountains.

I was dreaming about staying at Hotel Harnaś since I have learned that they will be reopening this hotel after a few years of renovations.  I was excited by following their Social Media channels where they were posting a lot of pictures of the hotel rediscovering step by step some changed they have made to the building. I have decided that my birthday weekend would be a perfect time to discover Hotel Harnaś! I had so much fun and literally felt like a princess for two days. If you want to find out why – I invite you to read my post.

When I was making my reservation almost two months before my arrival, I have chosen luxurious and spacious Panoramic room (42 square meters surface) located on the 4th floor. Thanks to the glass wall between bathroom and bedroom you can enjoy the beauty of Tatra Mountains while taking a bath or shower. At the Hotel Harnaś, every single room has an iconic view of mountains. Higher floors have of course better views than the others.
When I have arrived at my room, there was my birthday bouquet prepared from my favorite tulips.

My hotel room was also decorated with balloons not only to remind me of my special day but also to make me feel like a kid again 🙂

Very comfortable and well-designed furnitures Noti are a perfect addition to the modern rooms in Harnaś. Inside my room, there was also a sofa bed (ideal for a 3rd person in your room), beautiful blue chair and a drawer in the middle of the chamber on which a big TV screen was located.

Inside my room, I was really fascinated by my bathroom decorated with black tiles. If you know me, then you remember that black is also my favorite color. This was a first time I have seen a dark bathroom. Before you consider to redecorate your bathroom with black tiles you have to know that they are tough to keep clean, you can literally see every water drop on your tiles.
This is the best color for hotel bathrooms, and it makes it look very elegant. Inside my bathroom, there were also luxurious cosmetics set Chopard – Take Time For Happiness  (Inside Classic rooms there were different types of cosmetics).

Admiring the beauty of renovated Harnaś I came to a conclusion that I would love to live there forever My favorite place in the whole hotel area was definitely reception. It was a place very well decorated in every small detail. Space was open, big and very well lighted thanks to big windows. Inside lobby area Noti furnitures are also playing an important part, they are making this place look very elegant and modern at the same time.

I would also love to share my experience concerning people working at the front desk and in different departments. Well prepared, experiences, young people who are very professional and really care about guests well-being at the hotel. At the Harnaś Hotel, they know what a real hospitality is. Thanks to them I really felt lie a VIP guest. Unfortunately, a lot of hotels still don’t understand what a real hospitality is… Maybe they should learn from Hotel Harnaś’s staff?

You should also use their elevator where you can meet a real Highlander with his dog  He has everyday clothes of people living in this part of Poland.

After a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed and in a silence, it was a time for breakfast. In this post, I won’t be writing about food as it deserves another, individual blog post. Delicious food at Harnaś requires particular blog post.

For breakfast at Hotel Harnaś guests have access to the buffet where they can find a lot of unique dishes fro, the local cuisine prepared with fresh products. Bg choice of cheese, cold cuts, meat, hot and cold dishes will satisfy every need. A big selection of homemade cakes, sweets and… but about this, I will be writing in another post. Be patient, please!

In the whole hotel area, we can observe a lot of interesting and modern architectural solutions. General renovations gave this hotel another life. Before, Hotel Harnaś it was a dream destination for a lot of travelers from whole Poland. Now, after renovations, people will be still coming here and discovering not only the beauty of Harnaś but also of the Tatras and local area.

Inside the hotel on the first floor, there is a relaxation room where you can invite your friends. You can find there a big TV screen and comfortable sofas.

Next, to you will find a small but very well equipped room for conferences and business meetings.

The best part of Harnaś is that every single room has a view on the magical Tatras!

During my stay at Harnaś, I also had a chance to visit, located only a few kilometers Hotel Bukovina, which belongs to the same owner. This is where Harnaś’s guests can use for free (up to 3 hours) famous Bukovina Thermal Baths with a lot of pools with hot water and other attractions. During the summer time it is no problem to walk there, but during the winter time is more difficult. That is why Hotel Harnaś provides a shuttle to and from Bukovina Hotel. They own a limousine which transports hotel guests. All you can do is to contact Front Desk 10 minutes before leaving, and the driver will be waiting for you. In case there will be more guests at the hotel they also provide a shuttle bus.
This is how hotel’s limousine looks like.

Hotel Bukovina is a big and luxurious property where Bukovina Thermal Baths are located. I’m happy I was able to try Thermal Baths, they are definitely helping you to relax and to warm your body during the cold season. I also had a chance to use their honey massage which helped me with my muscles sore. When you are at Harnaś, you can’t miss your chance to visit Bukovina Thermal Baths where you can stay for free up to 3 hours (it is definitely enough to enjoy all attractions). All the guests of Panoramic Mountainview, Skysuite and Harnaś Suite get a VIP lockers where they can find a robe, towel, cosmetics, and water.

You know how to spoil your guests!
