Creating something new and extraordinary – a place for people who value their living environment

OKOL Lake Park is inspired by the beauty of the Bulgarian nature and the aspirations for a healthier lifestyle. The project’s concept is to create an alternative to the urban environment, the same conveniences you can find in the big cities, but in a place very close to nature.

OKOL Lake Park is a large-scale project that incorporates a golf course capable of hosting international tournaments & events, a five-star hotel, green zones and residential areas offering family and holiday homes. Surrounded by wide-open spaces, the location stands out by its picturesque surroundings and spectacular views of the mountains and the Iskar Lake.


The Perfect Location

Defined by open spaces, fresh air and unforgettable views, OKOL Lake Park is located in a privileged setting, bordered by nature. This premium golf & residential community is located at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level, in the eastern side of the Plana mountain. Situated on a vast plateau, OKOL Lake Park offers scenic views of the Iskar Lake and Rila, Plana and Vitosha mountains.

The microclimate is characterized by a distinct combination of light winds, high number of sunny days, cool summer and mild winter. The project location was strategically chosen, taking into account the area’s exceptional natural beauty and the easy access from Sofia and the Borovets resort.

OKOL Lake Park is located on the outskirts of the Gorni OKOL village in Samokov, on a magnificent hilltop ridgeline, at about 30 km from the country’s capital and 25 km from Borovets ski resort.


PULLMAN OKOL Golf Resort & Spa  

One of the key elements within OKOL Lake Park is the five-star Pullman OKOL Golf Resort & Spa, managed by Accor – a global leader in the hospitality industry and the largest hotel operator in Europe.

Pullman is one of the premium brands of Accor focused on building a new generation of cosmopolitan hotels that balance the strive for professional achievements with personal development and the well-being of the individual.

Pullman OKOL Golf Resort & Spa Hotel will offer 149 rooms and 40 Pullman branded villas, along with numerous F&B venues, Conference center with Grand Ballroom for more 500 people and Luxury Rooftop SPA & Wellness Centre.

The hotel is situated in an environment where nature and its colors dominate. The shape and positioning of the hotel is very firm and categorical, but yet light and representing flight and lightness.



The golf course is located right in the centre of the development, around 1,000 meters above the sea level and offers stunning views of Iskar Lake, the largest in Bulgaria, the distant Rila Mountains and the famous Borovets ski resort.

Designed by European Golf Design, the Par 72 championship course will measure 7,000 yards and will be capable of hosting major international tournaments and events.

The golf course is further complemented by extensive practice facilities and a state-of-the- art golf academy featuring IMG Performance Studios that will offer the latest in swing analysis and custom-fit technology for all abilities.

Designed by one of EGD’s leading architects Robin Hiseman, the course design keeps and enhances the natural habitats, the alpine meadow and the many impressive granitic tors throughout the layout.

The golf course, the Club House and the Golf Academy are managed by International Management Group (IMG).
