The hotel was officially opened in May 2009 after EUR 42 million reconstruction of former spa house complex Hviezdoslav.
Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras offers 98 rooms and suites (including Presidential and Honeymoon suite). It also offers Spa & Wellness services.
The hotel is located in the immediate proximity of the alpine lake Štrbské pleso, which is situated at an elevation of 1,351 metres (4432 feet) above sea level.
The current Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras consists of three interlinked historical buildings built over a period of 34 years, one next to another, on the Štrbské Pleso moraine: Jánošík (1893), Kriváň (1906) and Hviezdoslav (1923). They are distinguished by their varied architectural forms, which range from historicist design to the modern style of 1920s. Together, they give the impression of picturesque and quaint construction, with various roof shapes that contribute to the panorama of the surrounding Tatras peaks.
The oldest building, dating back to 1893 is Jánošík. Originally, Jozef Szentiványi had it built for his own needs and named it Jozef's villa. The romantic small villa, decorated with paintings and engravings on its facades and with richly furnished interiors, was visited by the highest levels of the aristocracy. Guests included several family members of the House of Habsburg and the House of Coburg, the King of Serbia - Milan and others.
