Location and history

The hotel is comfortably located among the centuries-old evergreen forests, 12 km from the center of Gelendzhik on the shore of Tsemes Bay. Here, mountain rivers flowing from the Markotkh Range flow into the Black Sea. A wide valley smoothly descends to the sea. From storms, the coast is protected by Cape Doob, so almost the entire coastline is divided into beach areas. Taking into account the geographical and climatic advantages of the area, there was a decision to build a hotel complex of European class in Kabardinka.

The opening took place in 2013. The primary goal was to create special conditions for people who came here on vacation. The infrastructure of the hotel is well thought out, guests do not need to leave the territory in search of the best beach, food or entertainment.
