The first stage of the Hotel Ajda renovation saw the refurbishment of 134 hotel rooms and bathrooms, the lobby and reception area, and the aperit ...if bar. Some of the rooms and bathrooms were renovated in 2016, followed by the remaining rooms and some of the common areas in 2017. Creating authentic experiences for the guests, the hotel is themed around buckwheat, a grain that has been cultivated in the fields of Prekmurje for over 500 years. Guests are greeted by large images of buckwheat as soon as they arrive. In the rooms, they can discover and experience the interesting stories of buckwheat, which are different on every floor of the hotel.
The stories cover the history of buckwheat, its healing powers, beneficial effects on a good night’s rest, and more. We are working with a local provider to ensure that every room features pillows filled with Prekmurje buckwheat hulls, which have an antiviral and antibacterial effect, alleviate headaches, and improve general well-being. The accompanying services at Hotel Ajda are also linked to the story of buckwheat, as it relates to caring for the health and well-being of our guests.
