The decision – Our criteria
And once again the time came that we said “I really need a break”…This time, we searched for a 3-day winter excursion that would combine luxury, relaxation and an adrenaline rush. Are you close to finding the destination? We did, and it is none other than Bansko. The town, during the last few years, has been growing in fast pace and it is now called “St. Moritz of the Balkans”. Hotels and restaurants sprout all around like mushrooms, trying to satisfy the ever growing numbers of visitors, who come to enjoy the favorite winter activity, skiing.
Among the multitude of hotels, the one that we picked out was the 5-star Premier Luxury Mountain Resort, which is located on the foothills of Mount Pirin. And just like that, the puzzle was complete! After we had settled on the destination and accommodation, there was nothing left to do than visit Bansko for…the 3rd time!
The arrival – The hotel
Our arrival could not have been better, as our two-storey loft was warm, while the table was full of champagne, fruit, desserts and snacks to accompany the sparkling wine! As for the view, it was exquisite, with a background of the snowy white landscape and beautiful mountains…The ideal scenery to spend three days of relaxation.
The Premier Luxury Mountain Resort has 111 rooms and suites with four collections of rooms (each collection has different types of rooms), two restaurants (Amvrosia Modern Butcher Cuisine, Dionyssos Main Buffet Restaurant) and 1 bar (Nectar Gastro Bar), which will add more quality and taste to your life! Its interior decoration is modern, with warm/friendly touches, while all areas are squeaky-clean. The staff, keeping up with the general.

The rooms follow the elegant concept of the hotel with the element of wood, luxury and comfort having the first word. How could it be any other way, since the smallest room is 40(!) m²? The beds are soft and offer quality sleep, spaces are warm, bright and welcoming, while –here as well- cleanliness has the leading role. In the room there are plenty of amenities, of which we picked out the mini bar, the autonomous heating/cooling, the name-brand beauty products, the free WiFi, satellite TV, safe box, the blow-dryer and the coffee/tea machine. Furthermore, we should highlight the excellent Soundproofing, as well as the quick room Service. In a few words, the rooms of the Premier Luxury Mountain Resort offer a lot of reasons for you to never leave them.
The 5-star hotel offers complete Spa services with lots of options for massage and invigorating programs. We tried a complete relaxation and beauty program and we left restful and five years younger…! We recommend it without any reservation. In the same area, there is also an indoor heated pool, sauna, hamam, hot tub and Turkish bath. The Premier Luxury Mountain Resort also provides a Game room, the Kids Club & Animation for children that are guests of the hotel, a Clothing Store, Concierge service, a Gym, Free Wifi in all areas, a large Conference room, as well as an Outdoor pool with a pool bar.
And as for the transportation to and from the lifts, you should not worry, as a van waits at the hotel’s entrance to take you to the gondolas for free, every 10-15 minutes. Finally, we should mention that at the hotel you can find Ski and Snowboard equipment, as well as the chance to purchase a VIP Ski Pass, so you don’t have to wait in the endless line for the lifts.
