The New Face of Borovets Resort -
the Rila Hotel!
Established as the first mountain resort in the Balkans, by the royal family in 1896, Borovets Resort boasts 120 years of history and tradition. The four-star Rila Hotel, with its close proximity to the ski slopes (the classic ski-in/ski-out location), is the most impressive hotel in Borovets. Built in 1986, by a French contractor, following the model of the French ski resort -Les Arcs in the Alpine Savoie region, the Rila Hotel is located amidst the breathtakingly beautiful and unspoiled scenery of Rila Mountain, in the heart of Borovets, at an altitude of 1350 meters. The hotel provides perfect holidays for any age and during any season.
In 2015, the Rila Hotel underwent a massive renovation, which was completed in December 2015. The renovated hotel will offer: an impressive Spa center, featuring a variety of treatments and a relaxation zone; a panorama bar “The Terrace Lounge” with stunning views of the ski slopes; the most modern disco club in Borovets resort – the new “After Eleven”; a dynamic conference center with approx. capacity of 1300 participants. The restaurant outlets and lobby bar “Champions Bar & Diner” have also been completely renovated, featuring the latest trends in alpine style ambiance.
