Vila Bled is the former residence of the Yugoslavian President Tito, so it's no surprise to find that the lakeside location overlooking the island is second to none. Surrounded by parkland and with direct lake access it is now a small luxury hotel offering superb quality accommodation and a fantastic restaurant in an unforgettable setting.
The Vila has thirty rooms and offers a mix of double-rooms and suites, all with en-suite facilities, separate shower and bath, TV, internet connection and most with either views over the lake or across the parkland. The Vila also has a spa and offers a variety of treatments, sauna and jacuzzi.
The restaurant at Vila Bled is highly regarded with top-class Slovenian and international cuisine and a fantastic wine cellar. There is a lovely summer terrace for eating and drinking in summer months as well as the wonderful Belvedere cafe - perhaps the most impressively located coffee bar in Slovenia!
Vila Bled offers a wide variety of non-fishing activities from hiking and rafting to mountain-biking and spa-treatments.
Although Vila Bled is officially a 4-star, we feel that this perhaps does not do justice to the level of comfort and the quality of its classic 1950's style furnishings and fittings, wonderful inlaid wooden floors and fantastic art works. Facilities are also excellent with a great restaurant, a separate coffee bar with unforgettable views, a wellness centre and a private lakeside lido.
Food is a-la-carte and as you would expect of a fine hotel. Packed lunches can be organised by separate arrangement with the kitchen.
