Mövenpick BalaLand Resort is located on the coast of one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Central Europe. The new hotel is a significant milestone for the local hospitality and tourism industry as this highly anticipated opening brings the Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts brand to one of Hungary’s most beloved regions and tourist destinations. The hotel resort is part of a wider development project encompassing a unique in- and outdoor family park named BalaLand.

“Opening the first Mövenpick hotel resort in Hungary is a great privilege, a true milestone, and big development for the local hospitality and tourism industry,” said Dieter Prachner, General Manager of Mövenpick BalaLand Resort Lake Balaton. “Being the first international five star resort at Lake Balaton means a big distinction for us. Breath-taking surroundings with captivating interiors and modern design are attributes that we want to be recognised for. The connection between our décor with popular Jules Verne’s novel and Caribbean-colonial style provides a magical and unforgettable guest experience.”

Mövenpick BalaLand Resort shelters 109 modern and comfortable rooms, including 46 suites. Each room stands out by a unique theme, created in the spirit of the ’80 days around the World with Phileas Fogg’ theme. Guests can also benefit from the extensive offering of relaxation and wellness amenities in the hotel – on the fourth floor, there are five SPA treatment rooms with three saunas, a salt cabin, a steam room, and a couples therapy room. Travellers looking for active rest can use a fully equipped fitness room. The BalaLand Family Park offers indoor and outdoor entertainment facilities perfect for families with children, with an emphasis on preschool-aged kids.
