Transylvania, Romania

Matca Transylvanian Sanctuary

An authentic Romanian escape

A natural haven where tradition perseveres

Designed to immerse you in Transylvania’s natural charm and cultural heritage, MATCA is a hill-top sanctuary which honours tradition, without compromising on comfort or luxury. Its isolated and scenic location affords it the privilege of remaining authentic, and you’re invited to discover the history and customs that take pride of place during your stay.

The 16 guestrooms and suites are situated in two traditional Transylvanian farmhouses, with two private villas enjoying an undisturbed spot nearby. Peaceful interiors elevated by locally crafted décor and thoughtful touches inspire an atmosphere of quiet contemplation, in harmony with your pastoral surroundings.

The chef at STUP, the hotel’s restaurant, has created a tribute to Transylvania’s culinary heritage through painstaking recreation of traditional recipes. Enhanced by seasonal, local produce, this revived cuisine is best enjoyed with a glass of Romanian wine from the restaurant’s discerning selection. The finishing touch to your dining experience are the enchanting vistas of lushly forested Carpathian mountains. Discover their abundant biodiversity on a range of guided activities, including a walking bear safari and an insight into beekeeping, which holds a special significance to the property, whose name translates to queen of the bees.
