Perfect for bespoke events and celebrations, The Dacha experience will be the perfect back drop to your special occasion. Whether it be  a family holiday, romantic retreat, intimate wedding or catered  dinner party, The Dacha team will design and tailor make the event to suit your requirements and ensure that whatever you’re hosting will be memorable.

We specialise in small group events with big outcomes.

Family Holiday

The Dacha was created with family living in mind and the design, layout and bedroom configurations are testament to the versatility and flexibility a family needs.

Let us create the perfect holiday for you, whatever that looks like.


The Dacha is able to host small intimate weddings with emphasis on attention and perfection. The lookout is the perfect spot to exchange vows with the lake and mountain framing the occasion.  Cocktails and canapés can be enjoyed on the lawn, pool side or on the outdoor deck and dinner can be catered indoors or out. The bridal party can all be accommodated at The Dacha and perhaps the couple will spend their first night in the romantic Banya.

Contact our team to see if we can make your dream a reality.


The Dacha can be rented to host small special events such as wedding anniversaries, birthday parties, reunions, family gatherings and such like. With our highly skilled chef, staff and amazing local resources we can assure you of a celebration to remember.

Contact our team to see what we can create for you.
