“It is an honor for me to be part of this magnificent event and to accept the prize for” Bulgaria’s Best Ski Hotel “, commented Miss Kashishskaya. I would like to thank everyone who has voted for us for their recognition and the whole team, of course, for their dedication and excellent results.

And this year we are glad that besides the Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena in Bansko winning then so too was again Bansko resort, awarded for the sixth consecutive time for “Best ski resort of Bulgaria”.

I believe that these international awards further contribute to establishing the hotel as a leader in offering a luxury skiing experience and the resort as a leading ski destination with an excellent price-quality ratio.”
