At Plesnik Hotel, we are committed to sustainable tourism and the sustainable use of resources. We have taken a number of measures to raise awareness among our guests and suppliers. We follow a Sustainability Plan that includes environmental, socio-cultural, quality, health and safety aspects.
We carry out an annual assessment of improvements and keep a record of new measures, taking into account the opinions of our guests and suppliers. We are also proud holders of the Green Globe eco-label, which provides a structured insight into the performance of sustainable tourism accommodation and service companies and their supply chain partners.
Tradition and an inherited mission have committed us to consistently stand up for and take care of the local community. We strive to use resources sparingly and to preserve the environment for generations to come. We direct our development in a way that does not threaten the survival of other species or destroy their habitats. We have clearly written rules of acceptable behaviour in the Logar Valley Landscape Park.
Our aim is to improve the quality of life. Healthy local food, which we are happy to offer to our guests, contributes a lot to achieving this goal. Guests can also choose from health treatments based on the principles of permaculture, Sebastian Kneipp, Rudolf Steiner and Ayurveda. The packages consist of personalised, healthy diets, the healing effects of herbs, outdoor activities, relaxation with wellness packages, massages and therapies.
Our development is based on the sustainable use of renewable resources, sustainable use of space and responsible waste management. All these procedures are detailed in our internal document, which is part of the Green Globe Eco-certification - Sustainable Management System. For more than ten years, the tourist facilities in the valley have been heated with wood biomass from local sources and also a waste water treatment plant has been installed.
To stay healthy, we need to take care of nature and our bodies. We will do this by living as sustainably as possible. Our relationship with food is extremely important. We offer products from local and Slovenian farms, and to minimise food waste, we have introduced lunch and dinner ordering and menu options for guests to choose from daily.
The rules and guidelines for sustainable behaviour and respect for the nature of the landscape park must be respected by everyone: the locals who live in the valley, the hotel staff, the hotel guests and visitors to the Logar valley.

Our cooperation with the wider community is also important. The Logar Valley Landscape Park and the Municipality of Solčava have been promoting the principles of sustainable development for many years, as evidenced by numerous awards, prizes and certificates. We have been awarded the Slovenia Green Destination Gold Label, and we have been ranked among the top 100 sustainable destinations in the world several times, to mention but a few.
