Reka Hisa was definitely the best place we stayed in our six weeks in Europe. The accommodation was lovely and the food fantastic. The hosts, however are the real standout! Clive and Myrna were so generous and kind. You feel instantly comfortable and at home at Reka Hisa, we have recommended it to all out friends! There was so much to do that we are definitely going back! Make sure you try the schnapps!

My husband and I just returned from a really fantastic ten-day vacation in Slovenia and would highly recommend the place we stayed. I don't usually write reviews on places we have been (this is the first), but we had such a fantastic time in a country I really knew nothing about, that I wanted to let others know of this wonderful place. This riverside lodge is the best place we have ever stayed! Wow! Clive and Myrna (the owners who you will view as friends when you leave) do not run their lodge like its just a business. They really welcome you into their home and make sure your vacation is one to remember. This is a very special place! "Full service" does not even to begin to describe what Clive and Myrna offer. Clive goes out of his way to make sure you are having a wonderful time and takes time to help you get to your activities, set up things to do each day, and gives you advice on where to go for the activity of your choice. You can stay at Reka Hisa (River House in Slovenian) and plan your own activities or do what we did and choose a multi-activity holiday where your activites are part of the package. If you want to change the package to meet your own needs/desires, Clive is very flexible. We went kayaking (twice), canyoning, rafting, biking, hiking, swimming, and visited an astounding cave. Slovenia is absolutely beautiful! The rooms at Reka Hisa are spotless, comfortable (never slept better), and the river view from each room breathtaking. Each night we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the rushing river just under our window. But the true highlight of our trip was meeting and staying with Clive and Myrna -- both very extraordinary people! You will be treated to a delightful breakfast which includes Clive's homemade jams. However, dinner is the real treat! Clive is your chef (unless you are lucky enough to talk Myrna into preparing traditional Filipino dishes for you!) and everything is made fresh and is so delicious! We enjoyed every three-course meal! We also had the pleasure of making new friends over dinner, especially Clive and Myrna, who will join you at the dinner table each evening. Don't make the mistake of booking a brief stay. Those who stayed only a few nights were regretting it and wishing they had made their stay longer! I just hope that this place doesn't get so popular that I can't get a reservation next time I want to go! The Reka Hisa rates are very reasonable and include breakfast and dinner. Airfare to Ljubljana is cheap if you book ahead and Clive will pick you up at the airport. The town of Bled (with a lovely lake) is ten minutes by bus/car and Lake Bohinj is fifteen minutes away as well (this lake is absolutely gorgeous). Besides the activities I listed, you can also horse-back ride, paraglide, tour the local area, go fly-fishing, and in the winter you can ski, sled, and ice-skate.
Reka Hisa Guesthouse Reviews from the Web
Beautiful spot overlooking a river, clean comfortable accommodation and welcoming hosts. Really great value considering meals included
We enjoyed the stay :-) and had a perfect vacation ... the concept of having breakfast & dinner together with the other guests and the hosts was perfect.
Clive & Myrna (the hosts) were also able to suggest actions and tours from Reka Hisa in order to see the unique non tourist sights in Slovenia and the recommended guides for action tours like canyoning & paragliding were highly proff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at Reka Hisa. Clive and Myrna were wonderful hosts and the food was terrific.
We heartily recommend Reka Hisa to anyone looking for good company and good food right on the river.
Plus, Clive and Myrna know the area extremely well and can recommend activities, etc.
