01 December 2015

The Bulgarian Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova awarded the winners in two of the major categories of the Bulgarian Hotel and Restaurant Association’s annual awards for excellence on 1 December in Sofia.  The Bulgarian Hotel and Restaurant Association is a non-profit organization and a member of the International Hotel and Restaurant Association. It is also the biggest such organization in the country with a membership that covers 80% of all hotels and restaurants in Bulgaria.  

Minister Angelkova presented the prizes for best five-star mountain hotel to aparthotel Lucky Bansko (located in one of Bulgaria’s leading winter tourism resorts) and for best five-star sea hotel to Marina Grand Beach Hotel (at the Golden Sands resort on the northern seacoast).

Despite the existing geopolitical hurdles and a somewhat difficult summer tourist season, overnights stays by foreign tourists in the country’s high-class hotels amount to 1,2 million people. “This goes to prove that tourists demand a high-quality product and are willing to spend their money on it. Hence we should continue to focus on excellence and on offering an even bigger and better tourist portfolio”, stated the Ministry during the official ceremony. She also noted that the Association’s annual awards are a benchmark for quality and an objective and trustworthy assessment of the work of the country’s leading hotels and restaurants.
