HAY Boutique Hotel and SPA by Edem Family in Bukovel 

Another project from the YOD Group from the Upscale Restaurant category. Organically integrated into the mountain landscape, the building is distinguished by its authentic Carpathian design. The concept of the hotel grew out of admiration for the luxurious nature of the Carpathians, in particular the local plants that decorate the terraces and balconies.
