Heron Live Hotel (Gródek Nad Dunajcem), Poland

Situated within miles of secluded forest on the edge of a beautiful lake, the Heron Live Hotel is a blissful escape from reality in Poland’s Gródek Nad Dunajcem.

Relaxation is the main affair here and the hotel boasts a fully serviced spa and an outdoor infinity pool that appears to jut out across the lake itself. Other activities offered to guests include canoeing and hiking, and bikes are available to hire for those who want to explore the natural beauty surrounding the hotel.
