Bohinj Park hotel - green hotel, built according to environmentally friendly guidelines


Close your eyes and try to imagine a large clear blue natural glacier lake surrounded by verdant slopes looking up to alpine meadows and the towering snow-clad peaks of the Julian Alps and you have a picture of north-western Slovenia's gloriously beautiful Bohinj Valley. At its head, the magnificent Savica waterfall, which gushes forth from beneath the surface of the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley, hurtles down the walls of the Komarca with a thundering intensity to finally flow generously into Lake Bohinj, Slovenia's largest natural lake and the showpiece of Bohinj Valley. Pretty villages and towns nestled amidst pastures, woodlands and hills complete the picture. Welcoming you to this gorgeous valley are numerous charming and well-equipped hotels, pensions, rooms and apartments.

Five star Bohinj Park ECO Hotel is a unique synergy of exceptional comfort, environmentally aware architectural blueprint and its mind blowing location. In recognition of its peerlessness, Finance magazine and Slovenian Ministry of the Economy in cooperation with the leading Slovenian scientific research Institute - the Jožef Stefan Institute, have given away another set of annual acknowledgements for Energy efficiency. Bohinj Park ECO Hotel was awarded as most efficient enterprise and Boštjan Čokl, its owner, recieved the flattering title of Energy Manager of the Year.

Having a full understanding of the sophisticated environment friendly construction approach is a heavy duty task out of average person reach. However, I am going to introduce you to the core of environmental architectural approach and that is Bohinj Park ECO Hotel 430 meters deep energy well.

Energy well

Next to the hotel 430 meters deep energy well was drilled. The whole area has high quantities of crystal clear water. Water - together with heat pump, is used for warming sanitary water and heating for the hotel. When geothermal water is exploited, it is not sent back into the ground, but is partially used for flushing sanitation. Only then - fully exploited - it can be directed to the sewage. We spend water wisely.

Warm sanitary water from showers and washbowls is also fully exploited. Instead of sending the warm water to the sewage, as it is usually done, it is collected in special containers, where heat pumps take away the rest of the warmth and then the water is fully exploited and at 9°C sent back into the sewage. After the warmth was taken away from the water, it is sent over the heat exchangers, back to the system.
Energy geothermal well and water that comes from it, is also used for cooling in summer. The water is sent to the cooling grids which then cool rooms and other areas in the hotel.
