The best hotels in Altai – tourism in an ecologically clean place

For supporters of active recreation, the best solution will be a trip to the vast Siberian expanses – to the Altai, an area that is famous for its unique nature reserves, archaeological sites and ski resorts. Especially for you, we have compiled a list of the best hotels in Altai, where you can relax not only body but also soul.

Teneri Mountain Hotel

For active summer recreation and exploration of the Altai reserves, a mini-hotel located right on the banks of the Siberian Katun River is perfect. The easiest way to get here is by your own or rented car, but the property also provides a transfer service from anywhere.

Simple but stylishly decorated rooms have a division into several generally accepted categories: luxury, private house, superior apartments, deluxe villa and family suite. Even seven people can comfortably accommodate here – the object is perfect for a vacation of a large family or a group of friends.

The hotel has a bias towards sports activities: guests can go cycling, fishing, horseback riding along the river coast, as well as devote time to walking tours of the area. All necessary equipment is provided by administrators. Younger guests are also not deprived of the attention of employees – a playground is open for them and various board games are provided.

Breakfast is served every morning in the lounge area, which is included in most accommodation options. Not far from the building there are grocery stores, and a kitchen equipped with everything necessary is also available for all guests.

Evgenia, Irkutsk: “The location is beautiful – around nature, silence, atmosphere of complete tranquility. It is good to relax here even in winter, despite the harsh climate. We will definitely come again!”

Eagle’s Nest Hotel

In the same area, near the mountain river Katun, three years ago another mini-hotelwas opened, surrounded on all sides by a lush pine forest. Guests of the complex breathe fresh air, walk near the river and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere.

The number of rooms has only three categories, differing in amenities and level of comfort: junior suite, suite and deluxe. The rooms can safely accommodate four people, so the object is perfect even for large families with small children (extra beds are available on request).

One of the main advantages of the property is the presence of its own outdoor swimming pool, SPA-center with a large selection of different care and wellness services, as well as a massage room where you can completely relax.

Specialists of the SPA zone provide cosmetic services and make various body wraps. On-site facilities include a picnic area, cycling paths and a table tennis court.

The eponymous restaurant in the main building is highly appreciated by tourists due to the first-class quality of service and delicious food – here the service is carried out on an à la carte menu (for children or adults). In the lounge area there is a small bar, where you should definitely try the excellent aromatic coffee.

Marina, Yaroslavl: “A wonderful tourist base for recreation with young children. Located right on the bank of a small river, constantly felt fresh air. Bunnies walk quietly on the territory at night – such a good ecology here!”

The apart-hotel with an unusual and interesting concept is located in the Altai village of Ust-Muny and attracts travelers from all over Russia – here you can fully relax your body and soul, recharge your energy for the whole year and recover from hard working days.

Altai Village Teletskoye

A comfortable country complex, marked by five stars for a high level of service, was opened almost two years ago in the small village of Artybash, on the shore of the picturesque Siberian Lake Teletskoye.

Elegant apartments in the hotel complex are stylized as a typical Russian country estate and are divided into several types available for booking on different sites: double, chalet (with one, two or three separate bedrooms), an improved cottage and a small single suite.

The hotel has a very developed infrastructure and offers its guests a lot of entertainment – both active and relaxing. Tourists can visit the swimming pools (indoor and outdoors) and the spa area, visit the Turkish hammam and the Finnish sauna, and then splash in the bath. Shuttle services, laundry services and access to the conference room and business centre are available upon request.

In the restaurant with the melodious name “Lake” service is organized on an à la carte menu, which includes a variety of Russian and European dishes. If desired, food can be delivered directly to the room, which is very convenient for tourists tired of active pastime.

Editor’s choice

Any holiday should combine both active pastime and relaxation in an atmosphere of complete tranquility – that is why our experts believe that the most comfortable vacation will be in the country hotel complex “Village Teletskoye” on the shore of the lake of the same name. This option compares favorably with several points:

  • excellent service
  • location in the reserve
  • developed infrastructure
  • availability of own SPA
  • equipment of suites

To get to the base from the airport, we advise you to book a transfer from the staff in advance – you will have to go within an hour, the path will not be close (about a hundred kilometers), so it will be difficult to find a taxi.
