Complex Grand Monastery
GRAND MONASTERY is located in the ski centre of Pamporovo, Studenets area, only 100m from the main ski-lift to the famous Snezhanka tower. This is actually the newest and most progressively developing part of Pamporovo.
Justifying its name, GRAND MONASTERY consists of 5 buildings connected with heated walkways and escalators running in both directions. Each building also has two internal lifts. At the top the complex contains a ski-exit onto the green run which leads to the ski centre of Studenets.
All 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and studios contain a French fireplace, a fitted kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and a cozy living room. Those at the highest level – in buildings 4 and 5 – boast a beautiful mountain view. The spaciousness, the excellent furnishings and the proximity to the slopes make these apartments the preferred choice of families with children who seek homely comfort during the whole winter holiday.
GRAND MONASTERY offers a restaurant, a tavern, a lobby bar and a piano bar with live music. For recreation there is a bowling alley with electronic games and a children’s club with an entertainer for our junior guests. Health and fitness are catered for by the ‘Paradise’ welness zone with swimming pool, and two separate gyms.
A ski-wardrobe and a ski school are available together with a storage room for personal skiing equipment. Guarded car parking is provided. Next to the parking area there are two excellent restaurants, so the gourmet preferences of all our guests will be fully satisfied.
After skiing, you can ‘recharge’ your body at the Paradise Spa. Access to the large swimming pool and the hot saunas is included in the price. As well as that, you can enjoy: a steam bath, massage rooms, a Cleopatra’s bath, a hairdresser’s salon with manicure service, and a specialist store for winter clothing and accessories.
