“Paradise”
Reviewed September 18, 2008

Date: August 25, 2008


We spend a week in this magnificent place.

The focal point of the complex is the pool, and the focal point of the pool is the bar, which, like other pool bars I have seen elsewhere in the world, features a curve of stone seats set beneath the waterline for those who, to upturn a phrase, prefer to take it with their water.

In a bow to another current fashion, the poolside features not only chaise longues but also beds, in mock-four-poster style, with fine translucent drapes to shade away the sun.

Having arrived on a Thursday afternoon, we found the pool area to be hosting just a few customers, a welcome oasis from the frantic drive along the coastal road. The waitress served as swiftly as bidden, which this sceptic put down to business being slow. When the weekend came, however, with Friday sunset bringing a succession of cars through the gate, service remained swift.
Fridays also bring a change of pace to the bar and the place as a whole, with a resident DJ taking up his duties, themed evenings – the first of the weekend being, predictably, Thank God It’s Friday (house beats), Saturday is The Funky Return of Old School (meaning, music from the 1970s to the 1990s) and Sundays being dance nights. July and August this year have seen special events, including, on the weekend we were there, a poolside performance of several hours from 9pm onwards by Alexandra Raeva.

Over lunch, a poolside barbeque operates, offering a menu du jour with changing items, including a fulfilment of the boast that the place offers only fish caught locally. Otherwise, in the evenings we headed for the complex’s Bistro Turquoise, which has decor done out in latter-day white-painted-wood beach chic and a menu offering a small but representative selection of salads, soups and main courses (sample items: club sandwich eight leva, spicy chicken nine leva, beef fillet steak 23 leva), along with a view of a sunset over a horizon not yet transformed into the greens of what is rapidly becoming Bulgaria’s Golf Coast. As at the bar, wireless internet is available in the bistro area, with an information sheet providing the password. And, as at the bar, staff are friendly and efficient.
Accommodation at the complex is comparable to that at some of Bulgaria’s more expensive hotels along the Black Sea coast, at 131 leva a night in low season for a single room and 173 leva in high season, and 163 leva a night in low season for a double room and 222 leva in high season. For those who prefer a sense of exclusivity, however, a complex of this kind is a break away from the crowded beaches elsewhere on the coast.
