Planinata SPA Hotel Ribaritsa
Planinata Spa Hotel is located in the lovely mountain village of Ribaritsa in Central Bulgaria, just an hour or so away from Sofia by car. This place is perfect for all those who appreciate nature, love to relax and enjoy spending their holiday far from the maddening clamour of the big city. And, indeed, the very first thing you will hear once you get there and shut off your car's engine will be the cleansing sound of silence that is only gently broken by the heavenly music of the nearby river and the crowing of the neighbours' roosters.
The hotel's exterior design emulates the traditional Bulgarian architectural style of the 18th and 19th centuries incorporating classical elements such as whitewashed facades and large balconies with wooden railings. The overall arrangement of the buildings comprising the hotel complex is also reminiscent of another typically Bulgarian architectural form - that of the Orthodox Christian Monastery. But the main reason for these features to be so appealing to people comes from the fact that they go hand in hand with innovation and creativity. The tall tower and the attractive outdoor swimming pool in the courtyard prove this point. And let's not forget about the interior of the place, too.
All rooms and suites are bright, boast beautiful modern furniture, wide sets of amenities and spacious bathrooms and offer nice views of the mountain. There is also a neat little mansard with garret windows available at the hotel, which is just what every couple in love needs.
The sunny lobby will entice you with its clean design and warm fireplace; the piano bar will add a dash of entertainment and excitement to your pleasant vacation and will keep you dancing and partying all night; the restaurant, of course, will demonstrate the true magnificence of the Bulgarian national cuisine to you and will impress you with its stunning assortment of exquisite local wines; and the view from the hotel tower... oh, it will charge your whole body with positive energy and desire to enjoy life.
Guests will be able to try all sorts of standard and original procedures and treatments in the trendy spa at the hotel. There one can get a revitalising massage after the long exhausting hike in the mountain, take a steam bath or spend a relaxing afternoon in the bath tub.
The hotel also has a fully equipped conference hall where various different corporate and business events are held and a whole bunch of attractions, such as the games room, the mini library and the outdoor swimming pool that we already mentioned. The giant trampoline in the courtyard is just for kids... and they simply love it.
The region around Planinata Spa Hotel abounds in hiking trails and nature reserves and the excellent ski slope in the nearby Berkina Mogila Area is worth checking out as well. The magnificent Glozhene and Troyan Monasteries and the mysterious Saeva Dupka Cave are also not too far away.
