“Fantastic hotel in the woods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

This hotel is crazy good! Located by a lake. In the middle of the woods. Far from anything else.
The estate was beautiful. Buildings extremely impressive. Rooms beautiful. Fantastic food. Great service in every respect. Great wines. And the Russian banja with Igor working hard to keep us happy. Bathe in the cold lake (October) to cool off from the banja.
Experience of a lifetime. Truly recommended.

Room Tip: You will probably want a room with lake view.

We planned this holiday as a weekend escape from London. Everything about it was perfect - here are some highlights
-Our plane was delayed for 2 hours meaning we arrived very late (2am) but the friendly driver was waiting at the airport for us with a sign. Made it very easy
- the reception staff were there to welcome us and all weekend the different reception staff were very helpful and friendly
-the restaurant staff at breakfast and in the main restaurant were very knowledgeable and attentive
-the location is beautiful - by a little peaceful lake. We enjoyed our 'tour' of the grounds as well. We hired a little row boat and went fishing on the lake
-the Thai massages were fantastic and reasonably priced by London standards anyway!
-they organised for a transfer to Trakai and recommended some excursions there
-the facilities were very clean and everywhere was warm which is important at this time of year.

All in all it was a wonderful break away. Thank you to all the staff for ensuring we had such a great stay.

Who knew that the country from which my grandparents fled in 1900 would have come so far in such a short time? This world class resort in the midst of a forest has everything - incredible beauty, tranquility, recreational facilities, fine dining.

A communications glitch outside the resort's control was attended to immediately and we were compensated for having found our own transportation to the resort. Thank you to the staff.

Our family with 3 kids really enjoyed this autumnal getaway in Esperanza. The magic of the place obviously is that it is at its best around the year - all the time. Any season is enjoyable if You've really made up Your mind to do it and there are people capable and willing to take care of the service. In Esperanza they are.

To find this place took a bit of effort as the GPS did not locate-and directions were hard.But it was worth the search!Coming into the picturesque setting made the look worth while.All was superb,all was calm,service superb and the fruit left in my room (my Birthday) was such a nice touch.Activities varied so even in bad weather there is plenty to do,but in warm weather with lake ,walkway through the forest and hills,boating on the large lake,basketball,tennis-such much to do!Will be happy to book again and partake in one of the finest restaurants in Lithuania!A superb place and worth a stay ,you will not be disappointed.

That was just a remarkable stay and for sure we will come back! Location is absolutely outstanding, staff is very much friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, food in restuarants is great. the only advice would be to include Lithuanian cousine as well.

The Esperanza Resort at Lake Ungurys in Vilnius, Lithuania

Our Leuzinger-Family-Reunion with 35 people from all over the world is unforgattable! We 8 participants from Switzerland were surprized and impressed by such a high quality of the hotel. Not only are the luxurious wodden buildings a pleasure to look at but also the smartly dressed staff is extraordinarily helpful. A quiet five-star-hotel!
A thousand thanks to the family-organizers Liisa and Marius and the great Esperanza Resort!
Vreni Schiesser-Leuzinger, Switzerland

Room Tip: It`s a quiet hotel area at a little lake, therefore, all rooms are good. More luxurious are the ones...
