Vila Bled in Slovenia: Marshal Tito’s former residence transformed into a luxury hotel

vila bled slovenia

Located in the Slovenian Alps, Vila Bled, former holiday villa of the late Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia, has been transformed into a luxury hotel. Its timeless elegance has been retained, and now guests can enjoy the warm hospitality and comfort provided by this exceptional location in Bled.

The hotel has a delightful retro style décor typical of the 1950s as well as all-round comfort and services of the highest standard, in fact, presidential standards. The bathrooms are large and well stocked with L’Occitaine bath products. Period furniture and warm earthy tones create an atmosphere of cosiness. If you want a true regal experience, book the presidential suite that was the former chamber of Marshal Tito. The suite is definitely the most lavish room in the hotel, and is located on the top floor. It offers 100 square metres of ultimate luxury.  WiFi and cable TVs are available in all rooms.

Vila Bled can be considered more of all-inclusive hotel if you get the autumn package as the cost of the room not only includes a full breakfast, but also four-course gourmet meals each day as well as free use of the sauna and bath. Vila Bled’s acclaimed restaurant offers a mixture of French, Mediterranean and Slovenian cuisines and is also an ideal location to hold events (such as weddings and conferences) as it can accommodate up to 70 guests.

Along with bikes, the hotel offers complementary row boats which can satisfy your desire for exercise and relaxation. You can row across the lake to the lovely island located in the middle.  The hotel has a private swimming deck on the lake which you can enjoy for a quick swim or for sunning yourself in a romantic setting. If you really want to indulge yourself, the Sauna and Relax Studio is a place where you can enjoy the comfort of a warm massage bath or shower. Room rates begin at 210 EUR and can be booked online.
