Gelendzhik Bay is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. All thanks to the shape, geometrically repeating the horseshoe of different diameter capes. And once the horseshoe brought real happiness to this wonderful corner of nature. Attracted by the excellent conditions, several thousand years ago ships came here to replenish fresh water supplies and relax from the hardships of a long journey.

Private hotels and inns are now where the old hospitable houses and taverns for sailors used to be. The beach next to the “Residence leonora” deserves special words.

We lived in the new building for only 4 days. And there are a lot of impressions! So, all in order. Very cozy, despite the delay, we were greeted warmly and hospitably and showed one of the best rooms of the hotel. Everything is very friendly and tasteful. Very pleased with the unique design of the hotel itself and the unusual landscape on its territory. The hotel is brand new and, it is clear that the owners do not save on the interior, design, furniture. In general, there are a lot of positive emotions. The main thing was very comfortable and cozy.
