In the most beautiful part of Sokobanja, on the banks of the Moravica River, surrounded by greenery and beautiful landscapes, Sunce Hotel has spread its arms wishing to provide unforgettable moments of rest and relaxation to its visitors. And in the new season, many novelties are being prepared for its guests. An increase in the number of accommodation units is expected, and this will be accompanied by the expansion of the restaurant`s capacity.
We spoke with the director, Stefan Savic, about the importance of the hotel, its offer, as well as the planned investments.
eKapija: What can visitors of hotel Sunce expect in the upcoming season?
– After two years of successful business, Hotel Sunce, the pride of Sokobanja, announces the expansion of its capacity for the upcoming summer season. The plan is to open an annex with 31 modernly equipped and comfortable accommodation units. Due to the increasing interest of domestic and foreign guests, there was a need to increase the number of accommodation units. The hotel`s offer in the new season will include 155 rooms and suites intended for guests with refined taste and the need for a high-class hotel, equipped according to the most modern standards. The young team of designers from Naos Studio

– The increase in the number of accommodation units is accompanied by the expansion of the restaurant`s capacity, so guests of the Sunce Hotel will be able to enjoy the new full board restaurant with a view of the city park and the Moravica River. The idea of our gastronomic team is to revive somewhat forgotten foods specific to the Sokobanja area with the help of modern food preparation technology and to present dishes in a unique and modern way.

eKapija: Sunce Hotel is a congress center as well. What is offered in that regard?
– In addition to providing the opportunity to rest the mind and body, the Sunce hotel has also become a base for holding corporate events in southeastern Serbia. Two halls with a capacity of 110 people each, food from the southeastern region and the possibility of organizing additional activities with the support of the sales team, attracted numerous pharmaceutical and IT companies, non-governmental organizations, companies from the country and abroad in the organization of seminars, congresses and smaller team building events.
During two years of work, the need to expand the congress space arose, so the construction of a multi-functional hall with a larger capacity is the plan for the next phase of construction.
eKapija: How do you see the development of the hotel in the future and what are your plans?
As an ecologically oriented company, by wanting to achieve a positive impact on people, the economy and the environment, the Sunce hotel develops its business through promoting the goals of sustainable development: from environmental protection, heating and cooling of the building with completely ecological systems, through optimization of energy efficiency to the highest safety and health at work. The hotel is extremely committed to a pleasant working atmosphere and employee satisfaction.

In addition to the announced investments in accommodation facilities, investment in employees through professional trainings and personal development workshops proved to be a very significant investment, as the Sunce Hotel team became recognizable for its superior service. Most of the employees are from Sokobanja and its surroundings, so the spontaneous friendliness and homely atmosphere have become the main feature that sets the Sunce hotel apart on the market. Guests who regularly return to this pearl of Sokobanja emphasize the unobtrusive friendliness and natural smile of the employees as the main reason for their trust.
Our mission, as the bearer of the tourist offer in Sokobanja, to bring a new dimension of tourism to this part of Serbia, is showing significant results. High guest ratings and a large number of those who gladly return to us represent the greatest motivation, and at the same time, the desire to raise the limits of business. The opening of a new a la carte restaurant and the expansion of the Wellness&Spa offer are just some of the upcoming investments.
