Amidst this natural heaven lies MATCA. Offering awe-inspiring views into the Transylvanian Forest and Bucegi Mountains, this luxurious hill-top sanctuary has been conceived with its guests’ utmost comfort in mind, creating the ultimate immersive experience.

As you take in the fresh air and the views you will be marvelled by the astonishing natural setting and by how MATCA combines these views with locally and traditionally inspired contemporary interiors.

A year-round location where every season has got its own magic effect on the surroundings, MATCA is that special place where to fall in love, where to find inner peace, where to unwind and where to get pampered in the most soothing of settings.

MATCA offers 16 exclusive guest rooms and junior suites plus 2 private villas that seem to have been dropped on a hilltop by divine inspiration, overlooking the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Guest rooms offer a perfect combination of authentic Transylvanian style and contemporary elegance and comfort, unseen to date in Romania.

Paired with a magnificent SPA and a restaurant inspired by a new local culinary awakening, MATCA is quintessentially Transylvanian. 


MATCA translates into English as the queen of the bees. We not only indulge in our local nature and tradition. MATCA furthermore disseminates values related to and products manufactured by our bee colony. 

Since ancient times and across all cultures, the honeybee and especially the queen of the bees are a symbol of wealth, good luck, and prosperity, said to be diligent, sociable, pure, wise and creative. We have incorporated these values into our philosophy and are continually looking for additional opportunities to incorporate the health-benefiting products manufactured by our bee colony to the benefit of our bees and guests alike.


From the beginning, MATCA was envisioned to be part of the Relais & Chateaux family. Everything about MATCA—the location, architecture, accommodations, staff, services, and cuisine—was crafted to connect guests to the essence of the local nature, heritage, community, and finally, to their own roots.

MATCA aims to unveil the essence of genuine hospitality in Romania and everywhere around the world. Becoming a part of Relais & Chateaux association represents a milestone for MATCA, as it is not just a recognition of our achievements so far, but also a promise to continue our journey of innovation and excellence in hospitality.

We are honored to bring the warmth and soul of Romanian hospitality to the global stage, sharing our story and the beauty of our roots with the world.
