All accommodation is in prime location at a level of 1770m, in the very heart of the tourist centre and the national park of Kopaonik.
The resort is open 365 days a year, offering a wide range of challenges during both winter and summer. Blending first-class accommodation and spa facilities in a unique natural environment, MK Mountain Resort provides outstanding opportunities for an active and entertaining holiday. With over 1,500 beds, it represents the major hotel complex at Kopaonik, and was recognised as such by the Balkan Alliance of Hotel Associations as Best Balkan Winter Resort, 2012.
Grand Hotel and Spa
Enjoying a prime location, the Grand Hotel and Spa is just a few steps from the ski slopes that overlook the Kopaonik National Park. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment programme providing state-of-the-art facilities in 165 rooms and suites to satisfy even the most demanding of guests.
Rooms and suites are furnished in accordance with the highest world standards. Guests can enjoy the luxurious Grand Oaza spa and wellness centre, which features both indoor and outdoor swimming pools with jacuzzis surrounded by the breath-taking mountain scenery. Sauna World takes you on an international tour with a Russian bath, infrared sauna, hammam, Finnish sauna and an aroma steam bath. But it doesn’t end there: tropical showers, Kneipp treatments and a beauty and massage centre are also available.
Numerous restaurants and bars around the hotel offer traditional Serbian, and a selection of international, cuisine. The site also boasts a brand new business centre with three modern, fully equipped conference rooms. In addition there are superb sports and entertainment facilities, including a multipurpose sports hall of 1300msq for basketball, football, volleyball and handball. A modern gym showcases an extensive range of cardio and weight training equipment, as well as areas for pilates, aerobics, squash courts, an eight lane bowling alley and billiards. This great selection led to the complex being awarded the Great Winter Tourism Champions Cup for best hotel in the region.
The Family Hotel Angella
Located in the centre of Kopaonik, the Family Hotel Angella has exclusive shopping, dining and entertainment venues right on its doorstep. Due to its proximity of the ski slopes, the hotel is one of only a handful in Kopaonik that allow the option to ski at any time.
Featuring 127 modern rooms, the hotel offers complete comfort and relaxation. In addition to the restaurant and shops, guests can enjoy the outstanding spa facilities, created for moments of individual pampering. As its name suggests, the hotel offers special programmes for younger guests – parents can indulge in their skiing skills while children enjoy the wide range of entertainment facilities at the kid’s club, which offers daily play sessions and professional childcare for children aged three to 12.

Situated in the heart of Kopaonik’s tourist centre, the Apartments Konaci Deluxe consists of a selection of unique, renovated apartments, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. They offer an authentic taste of mountain living for young people who prefer freedom, privacy and convenience.

The shape of the future
Kopaonik is the largest ski centre in Serbia, and one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in this part of Europe, conveniently located 290km from Belgrade. With an average 200 days of sun and 160 submerged in snow per year, it is a place of unique natural splendour. The top class terrains of the ski centre feature more than 55km of slope for Alpine skiing, and 12km for Nordic skiing, accommodating all categories of skiers, from absolute beginners to experienced veterans. The ski centre features a well-arranged snowboard park and, for the most adventurous, a special ski challenge is organised away from the standard tracks. With the introduction of a snowmaking system, 90 percent of the ski area can now be covered with artificial snow, making skiing possible whatever the weather.
The quality of its entertainment has made the area very popular with both the younger generations and older people alike. In addition to sledging and ice-skating, families with children can enjoy a great variety of games and activities in the surrounding snow park.
For those making their first ski steps, the resort features a secured ski kindergarten area with a conveyor belt. Kopaonik also has a buzzing après ski scene that is developing a strong reputation to match the excellence of the skiing itself. Options vary from venues catering for crowds seeking an all-night party, to more intimate spots welcoming those who wish to enjoy the many fire-lit ski stories in chilled surroundings, accompanied by great food.
