Lucky Bansko Spa Hotel: Ultimate Review

Sharing is caring!

I recently attended the first-ever Bloggers on Top Conference in Bansko, Bulgaria. While there, I was invited to stay at the Lucky Bansko Spa Hotel, one of Bulgaria’s premier luxury properties.

I was first impressed by the location of the hotel- a short walk to the center of town, and the hotel even provides a shuttle if you prefer. I recommend the walk, so you can explore the charming town.

As I entered the property, I was immediately struck by the impressive modern lobby.

As I checked in the manager reviewed a few of the property’s features with me. Along with the standard wifi, satellite television, business center, and room service, I was also excited to learn about some features not offered by most hotels- wine tastings, a huge spa, and even escape rooms! I was eager to drop off my bags and explore the property.

As I was led to my room, a staff member explained that the property features 115 elegantly furnished and completely soundproof luxury apartments and studios. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable, and each room features a small kitchenette.

The property features two presidential suites, and the different room types make the Lucky Bankso Hotel perfect for any guest- solo travelers, couples, or families.

I was most excited to visit the spa, which I’m told is renovated annually. The spa features multiple indoor swimming pools, including this heated saltwater pool. I prefer saltwater pools because they don’t have chlorine! The pool also has hydro jets and underwater music, which I found impressive.

But the pools were just the start of my spa experience. The hotel also offers a jacuzzi, shock bath, hydromassage shower, two Finnish saunas (one of which is herbal), an infrared sauna, two steam baths, a hammam, and even an ice cave!

You can also purchase additional services, such as massages and cosmetic therapies.

While at the Lucky Bansko, I dined in their authentic Italian restaurant Leonardo’s. The menu features traditional Italian recipes with modern twists.

My friend joined me, and together we tried several dishes. We loved them all.

The restaurant has an open kitchen concept. We sat back with a glass of wine and chatted while watching the chef expertly prepare our meal.

It would be difficult to pick a favorite dish, but if I had to choose one, it would be the perfectly grilled steak.

Not only was the steak amazing, but my waiter’s wine pairing was spot on.

The Lucky Bankso also features two other restaurants, which I wasn’t able to try for dinner, and a daily breakfast buffet with made-to-order options such as omelettes and waffles. The buffet also featured several local and international selections. The property’s lobby bar features small plates you can order to accompany your drink choices.

As Bansko is a popular Bulgarian ski town, the hotel also offers many services aimed at guests on ski holidays. You can take advantage of free transportation to the ski lifts and even a heated ski wardrobe to store your equipment.

With all of these features and incredible customer service, it’s no wonder Lucky Bansko is one of Bulgaria’s most widely renowned. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and recommend it to anyone looking for a pampered, refined experience.

Hey Nathan,

Great pictures!

I haven't yet been to Bulgaria, but I have heard of Bansko, as they had this blogger who did great things, in order to put his town on the map!

'Nice one!
