IDW Esperanza Resort
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Trakai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2011

This place has a marvelous wood scent. It is built from huge logs, which are said to be Canadian cedar.
The resort is situated by the small lake. The territory is quite big and fenced and even includes a private forest with well-kept alleys.
Generally, the resort leaves a very nice impression of unexpected combination of traditional ecological hut and very modern luxury hotel: There is a lake and a fully-equipped Spa, there is a forest and different sport courts, terrace to enjoy the nature just outside your room and bowling lanes. Finally, huge logs and very contemporary colorful bar made of steel and glass.
Same goes to food. It is also a very special combination of local ecological products and international top class cuisine. I had a fantastic dinner with pumpkin soup and chicken as a main course. I was told that the pumpkins they grow at their own garden, while special organic chickens (I am not a chicken expert, but maybe that's why this one was very tender and crunchy at the same time) are ordered from France.
IDW Esperanza is a perfect escape from the city into the world of ecological luxury.

Two months passed since we visited this beautiful resort and we already want to go BAAACK !!!
The place itself is one of a kind, scenery is breathtaking, food is outstanding and service is a FIRST CLASS !!!
We were happy with their pick-up shuttle from the Vilnius Airport, happy with the smiles of the girls at the reception and with suggestions from the staff from the excelllent restaurant on site.
Food is superb and prices are reasonable
Vine list is extensive
Don't forget to try a local beer.........

I have stayed at IDW Esperanza resort one time.
I was very surprised because i didn't think that such a place in Lithuania exists.
The resort is indescribable, it so beautiful and the staff is super helpful.
I was very surprised that they have there eco garden and growing there own vegetables.
The food is wonderful two best chiefs of Lithuania is working at the restaurant.
I was also very surprised that they have so many indoor and outdoor activities .
They even have their own spa where treatments are wonderful especially thai massage.
I will definitely come back again and recommend this place to everybody.

This Resort is located just one hour drive from Vilnius to the direction of Trakai. My first impression was who could afford to make such a huge investment in the middle of nowhere. Private lake, closed teritory, precisely cut grass, high fence and security guards on the main gate. NO Advertising signs if you plan to go by car. When you are inside you feel like in the closed suburb club where only members are allowed. But the quality is worth trying. Two main buildings are made Of autentic huge tundra pine wood. Very St,moritz atmosphere inside. Swimming pool, towels, Spa and everything else is provided inside for member. Even showers have hans grohe rain showerheads about 2000 euro each which i could not afford at home. We were three couples inside and about 20-30 personel on duty. Sounds like bad Business Model but very pleasent to enjoy. Perfect place to gettaway or relax with Business partners or Government officials if You want to avoid Public

We have stayed at IDW Esperanza several times and one was awesome. Apart from the fact that the service as such is impeccable, the staff is very approachable and helpful, which makes the stay a very pleasant, unforgetable personal experience.
The resort includes high level sports facilities and other leisure activities. The SPA services are of the highest quality and the food was AMAZING.
We will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends!

This is the first resort in Lithuania. Built by Canadians from imported log trees from British Columbia. It worth every $ we spent there.We are from Canada, we were like home.Service and food is exellent, I can see a big difference between local hotels and IDW Esperanza Resort. Stuff is trained by Canadian management.
They have own vegetables, you can pick by yourself.I pulled out a huge fish from the lake and they cooked it for me!
I loved the spa and Russian style sauna rituals.I was there 3 times already. We will go for the New Year celebration ( they have a skating rink , ski trials, snowmobils). This is like one more Canadian territory ... in Europe !!!

Room Tip: You can choose lakeview or forest-view, both are good and quiet.
