“It is a privilege to manage a spa that has won “favourite spa in Bulgaria” four years in a row,” said recently appointed Spa Manager, Tatjana Mrakovcic. “It is easy to get to the top, but it is difficult to keep being on it and continue meeting guest expectations, year after year. I am thrilled that Kempinski The Spa is on top of Bulgaria’s competitive spa industry and our team will do its best to continue to provide high-level service.”

Winners of the Spafinder Wellness 365 Readers’ Choice Awards are determined by thousands of consumers and travel agents.
