Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko – luxury Ski and SPA hotel
Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko invites guests to experience a luxurious stay at the most popular winter resort in the Balkans and unveil the mystery behind Bansko – one of Bulgaria’s most significant cultural and historical centres. Being the only ski-in and ski-out hotel in the town, the hotel is located in the very heart of the mountain resort, ideally positioned right across from the Gondola lift station. During the winter season, the hotel provides VIP ski passes to its guests, which guarantee direct and quick access to the Gondola. The guests of the hotel also benefit from the state-of-the-art ski room, so in the morning they can just take their warm boots and jump on the slopes. The five-star luxury hotel is the only international brand hotel and is open year-round. It features 157 Alpine-style rooms, including 25 suites and an exclusive Presidential Suite, fully renovated Kempinski The Spa, four conference rooms and dining rooms with spectacular views of the majestic Pirin Mountains, offering an authentic Kempinski gourmet experience. The Gallery restaurant offers themed buffets throughout the winter and BBQ at the sunlit terrace during the summer. The guests can explore the spirit of Mediterranean cuisine at Come Prima Restaurant in a romantic and cosy ambience. Live cooking by the hotel’s international culinary team headed by Executive Chef Trevor Portelli in the open kitchen creates an amazing experience for every visitor, and the big fireplace makes the atmosphere even more spectacular and warm. The Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki Grill (open in winter) welcome guests for an exquisite meal and show by expert Teppanyaki chefs. This is the only place in the region to feature three Teppanyaki tables. In summer, La Veranda Bar & Lounge offers not only a breathtaking view of the mountain but also a unique menu, superb summer cocktails and the (exclusive for Bansko) sushi corner by the pool. Piano bar Sing Sing (open in winter) warms up the winter nights with amazing live performances and a spirited atmosphere. The Lobby Bar is the perfect place for a morning coffee or a light snack for lunch, or even a nice cocktail in front of the cosy fireplace on cold winter nights.
The SPA centre was recently renovated in May 2018 and features unique thermal facilities of the world-leading Germany company Klafs, including an authentic Finnish dry sauna, a last-generation herbal sauna, an innovative sanarium, an infrared cabin, two adventure showers for heat-cold contrast, a deep digital detox area, a tailor-made aroma steam bath and a self-heating wellness bench laconium. The brand new SPA further offers one indoor and two outdoor swimming pools, kids’ outdoor swimming pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi, fitness centre equipped with latest Technogym appliances and unique snow room.
