A hotel out of a fairy tale

Hotel Platán is a true gem, situated by Lake Balaton. Thanks to its family-friendly size and beautiful surroundings, it is the ideal destination for those who wish to have a relaxing break. It is located in the town of Zamárdi, on the southern shores of Lake Balaton. It is a great place to visit not just for one of the most spectacular sunsets you can catch anywhere around the lake but also because Zamárdi has a wide range of exciting events on offer all summer.

It hosts fantastic music festivals such as Balaton Sound, Strand Festival and ZamJam Festival. It is also home to large-scale sporting events, exotic day trip destinations, museums and a large number of leisure activities.

If you are looking for waterside fun, it is important to stay as close to the beach as possible so that you won’t have to walk far, whether you want to have a splash in the lake or take a pleasant evening stroll. In order to have a really memorable holiday, make sure to pick a place that offers great food and a beautiful environment with Lake Balaton right on your doorstep.

This hotel is a mere two minutes’ walk away from the beach, so you can dip your toes in the lake in a matter of minutes. Actually, you don’t even have to leave the hotel if you are looking for a splash because it also has an outdoor pool that guests can enjoy. You can also lay down on a lounger by the pool, whether for a bit of relaxed reading in the cool shade under the trees or for a spell of sunbathing.

Hotel Platán also has plenty on offer to please those looking for active relaxation. It has a pool table indoors and a superb beach volleyball court, table tennis tables and, for the youngest visitors, a small playground outdoors. And if you feel like hopping in the saddle for a quick ride, you can even hire a bike in the hotel. There are many bike routes and interesting attractions to discover nearby. You should definitely not miss Kőhegy Lookout, which towers over Zamárdi, and offers a breath-taking view of Lake Balaton. It is only a short walk or bike ride away.
