A Haven In Nature, Hidden In The Tokaj Wine Hills
MGallery Hotel Collection, a leading premium brand of Accor, has officially opened its new property in Hungary: MINARO HOTEL TOKAJ – MGALLERY. Located in a former andesite stone quarry, the boutique-styled hotel is nestled in the Tokaj hills in Hungary’s World Heritage-listed wine region. Travellers discovering this hidden treasure will be charmed by the hotel’s serenity, bespoke design, signature experiences, and thoughtful self-care rituals offered by the MGallery brand.
The remarkable MINARO HOTEL TOKAJ – MGALLERY, is an exquisite five-star property featuring 100 lavish and contemporary styled rooms spread across 4 floors with 10 Junior Suites and 3 deluxe rooms offering a unique experience of the in-room sauna. The hotel’s design is inspired by the old quarry and surrounding nature, with the name Minaro coming from a genuine combination of Tokaj liquid gold and the hotel location – mine. A subtle South American design influence serves as a nod to the Incan Empire, which used Andesite stone found in abundance in the Andes. The rivers, forests, and wetlands surrounding the hotel are also incorporated into its design, with the juxtaposition of humanity and nature creating a serene guest experience. The renowned team of local designers, namely interior designer – Barna Gyula of Interioor One Kft and the exterior designer, Dudinszky Orsolya of Dudinszky Tervezőiroda, worked together and created a unique conceptual resort theme.
The hotel’s proximity to the World Heritage wine region, renowned Wine Museum, and vineyard hills complement the culinary focus of the hotel. The picturesque location offers guests the opportunity to sample a variety of wines and immerse themselves in the spirit of the region during their stay.
“Opening this astonishing hotel is the perfect addition to the MGallery Hotel Collection and the beginning of a beautiful adventure.
