VILA BLED AND BELVEDERE
The unique Vila Bled is in a majestic park right on the shore of Lake Bled, its setting outside the centre of Bled ensuring privacy for the most noteworthy events. The villa was constructed in 1947 on the site of a former royal summer home and subsequently served for decades as one of President Tito’s residences before being turned into a boutique 1950s-style hotel.
The hotel with 31 rooms, most of which are spacious suites, boasts the exceptional Concert Hall, which features a fascinating mural depicting the Yugoslav struggle during WWII. The hall has direct access to a lake-side terrace and is a wonderful venue for meetings of various kinds, as well as gala dinners prepared and served by the highly skilled staff of the Slovenian State Protocol Service, which manages the hotel. The adjacent Conference Hall provides additional meeting space, while social gatherings can be held in the hotel restaurant and on its magnificent terrace.
The Belvedere Pavilion is an exceptional building set on 30-metre pillars in the hotel park. The edifice was designed by Jože Plečnik, one of the greatest Slovenian architects, as the reception area of a new royal residence, the plans for which never came to fruition. Later, it was used by Tito for relaxed tea parties. Nowadays, it makes an unsurpassable setting for a standing reception with the most beautiful view across Lake Bled and the island.
The hotel offer is rounded off by a wellness centre including a Jacuzzi, saunas and massage parlour, private lakeside lido and boathouse.
