Welcome to Backpacker’s Boutique. Every Sunday, this spot will feature a new travel blogger. Some weeks it will be a really fun interview about packing, fashion, and fitness so you can snoop inside their bags & lives a little bit and other weeks it’ll be a detailed luxury guide to a city the featured blogger/expat knows very well. E-mail me if you’d like to be featured.
A Luxury Guide to Lake Bled
Tell us a little about yourself and tell us why you’re an expert on luxury travel in Lake Bled.
Hi everybody, my name is Pam and I’m the blonde mind behind the blog “a Blonde around the World“. I was born and raised in Italy’s northeastermost corner, in the austro-hungaric city of Trieste, minutes away from the Slovenian border. Living here allows me to explore a lot of both Italy and Slovenia, as well as Croatia, Austria, and other Eastern European areas.
What makes Lake Bled a perfect destination for travelers seeking a glamorous trip?
Lake Bled is known worldwide for its stunning beauty, but maybe not everybody knows that Slovenia is a leader in the wellness and thermal Spas field, as well as in hospitality, making of Lake Bled a mecca for people seeking for a 5 stars getaway.
What 5 star hotel is the best in Lake Bled?
My favorite hotel in Lake Bled is the Hotel Golf, which is actually a 4 star. The Hotel is absolutely gorgeous and has great service, but its greater feature is that it’s connected to the best Wellness in town, the Wellness Ziva, allowing you to access it directly from your room wearing nothing more than your robe! More on the Wellness coming .. :) Click here for rates and availability.
Are there any fun activities for the adventurous traveler?
Lake Bled is full of activities to do in every season, one of the most romantic ones would be renting a rowing boat and row your princess around the lake as you were inside a fairytale! Renting a rowing boat is easy, and fun!
If you have a big date night, what are the most delicious restaurants in Lake Bled and what are their best dishes?
If you have a big date you should take her to dinner at the Bled’s castle. In it, there’s a very fancy Restaurant overlooking the lake. The view is absolutely amazing and they often perform live music and have much space for dancing. Again, she will fell exactly as a princess, so you should take her here if you’d like to ask some important question …. ;)
Let’s talk desserts- what place makes the best?
Once in Bled you have to taste the Bled’s typical cake. It’s a very big block of cream and pastry, and it’s really really good. The best ones can be found at Slascicarna Smon, inside Bled’s village.
Time for a great sunset view… where would you go?
You would expect that the best sunset view would be on top of a hill overlooking the Lake and the mountains right?
Well, probably it is so, but my favorite spot to enjoy the sunset is from the Wellness Ziva, which is one of my absolute favorite places i the entire world. The Wellness Ziva is part of the Hotel Golf, and while offering a wide range of pools and wellness services, its best feature according to me it’s the outdoors jacuzzi overlooking the Lake, the Castle and the Alps. Sunset from there is something magical, especially during winter, when outside it’s so cold, and you’re enjoying this magnificent view from inside a steaming bubbling jacuzzi!

Agree. I’d love to go here with Ben.
Ooh I’ve always wanted to go to Lake Bled! It looks like such a pretty place–and that cake looks awesome!
I’m so sad I missed it when I had the chance a couple years ago.. I was so close!
