January my friends!!! The most ideal period for those who love snow and winter sports! So this year, like all ski funs, I searched for the most suitable destination to get away! Bansko (in Bulgaria) is the place which is “the full package”.
But in region like this, with hotel facilities in plenty, the choice of the appropriate hotel is the “key” which makes your trip unforgettable. That is why I saw to choose Premier Hotel for my residence. And below you will realize why!
Premier combines everything and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING! The rooms, the spa, the variety in food, the comfortable spaces, the excellent design, the view, the restaurants, the ideal distance from the lift, the warm environment and the exceptional service make the hotel one of the best 5 stars of the region! But let’s put things in an order:
The room I stayed had two spaces, the bedroom and the living room and it offered a wonderful view of the mountain and the pool. A view which I didn’t get enough of staring, waking up in the morning and (from my pillow yet) set eyes on the snowy mountain was a priceless value. And this way, a good beginning starts in the morning! Being in an extremely merry mood, I didn’t have the heart to leave the room. Because except from the fantastic view, it provided all the comforts such as a coffee pot, a stereo, 2 TVs, a dvd, a mini bar, a safe, an office and all the bathroom’s cosmetics were from Bvlgari firm! A little paradise! And instead of “sweet dreams” on the bed there was a pillow menu of 4 different kinds which covered all tastes.
Literally an oasis in the hotel! Premier Hotel associates with Victoria Spa and this is the reason why you can stay in the hotel all day. The space is so large that you can literally get lost! It includes Turkish baths, sauna, steam-baths, interior pool, Russian baths, a vitamin bar, VIP SPA apartments, Jacuzzi and solarium. It’s the most ideal after a day in the ski resort!
The options for food in the hotel are the following:
-Nectar Bar for relaxing
First night I couldn’t resist the relaxing atmosphere of Nectar Bar where I chose to dine. I could stay in that place all night and chill out lying on the bolsters having my drink next to the fireplace.
-Dionyson for variety
Dionysos restaurant is used for the hotel’s breakfast which there is in a great abundance! American type breakfast is the best for starting your day and get strength for skiing all the rest of the day! The buffet is open during the night as well with a theme menu from cuisine from all around the world.
-Amvrosia for gourmet flavors
I received a warm welcome from the restaurant’s manager Ivan Dimitrov who informed me that at the time they were host to the famous Italian chef Prokopio Gaitano from Sicilian descent whom I had the pleasure of meeting! The dishes I tasted were at first a salad “Primavera Style” and for appetizers “Canelloni of Swordfish” and after that for main course “Duck Fillet” and “Kangaroo Steak”. The flavours were excellent and the image of the dishes referred to a painting. I implicitly recommend it to the flavour demanding. And in the end nothing is random……Amvrosia worthily possesses the title of the best restaurant in Bulgaria. Colors, fragrances and special flavors compose a unique dinner.
One thing I liked about the hotel, and it is something you don’t see often, is the fact that in the hotel there where families with children. While their parents were relaxing in the spa, the children were having fun in creative ways in the hotel’s organized playground.
Playroom with various options in games and a knowledgeable gymnasium to be always fit!
And for us women hair-dresser’s and a shop with jewelry and clothes!
Residence in Premier will be unforgettable! I didn’t want to leave…….
A little more of this room, one more taste of the restaurant, one more massage in the spa. You can never get enough of luxury!
I would like to express my warm thanks to the hotel’s principal m. Drettakis for our quality co-operation and his care in general during my residence.
Ready for Bansko? Make a reservation now! I implicitly recommend it!
