In 1998 OJT Dâmbovița sells the hotel and buys it Romcif SA which, after a capital repair classifies it to three stars. The inauguration was made on the occasion of the New Year’s Eve 1999-2000. The accommodation capacity was 108 places in 54 rooms.
As a novelty, a spa area with pool, sauna, showers and toilets appears on the ground floor. The swimming pool was built right in the spaces of the former thermal power station (on fuel). Also, the chimney was demolished and in its place was installed the elevator that serves the hotel’s customers. At the Reception level there is a day bar next to a games room equipped with billiards and two tennis tables. Above, was opened the new Restaurant served by a modern kitchen in the spaces of the former cabin.
“Foișorul” was built – a place for outdoor dining which is highly sought after and appreciated by tourists.
The great activity of Mr. Lucian Dragusin is a great lover of the mountain. During his time as director, through sustained efforts, he reintroduced the Pestera Hotel in the tourist circuit.
