I really liked how they met, the girls from the staff are very polite, attentive and friendly and at the same time not intrusive, for which they are special thanks. Check-in is fast. The rooms are not pretentious, nice, comfortable. I also want to note the comfortable silence. Breakfasts are a separate topic, very tasty and hearty, you eat until the evening.

Beaches & Pools

The mini-hotel does not have a private pool. Thanks to its convenient location, guests can easily reach several local beaches in minutes.

Central Beach

It stretches for 800 m in the central part of the village. Its territory is conditionally divided between sanatoriums and rest homes. The western part, for example, is in the possession of the sanatorium “Arkhipo-Osipovka”. However, access here is free. The mentioned health resort only monitors the cleanliness and order. The pebble beach is equipped with changing rooms, fountains for drinking, sports grounds. Along it passes Primorsky Boulevard ˗ the main entertainment street with a large number of cafes and restaurants. On the beach itself there are rental points of beach equipment, masks and fins. Here you can book a boat trip or a banana ride.

“Prokhorovsky” beach

The artificial beach is located some distance from the center. There is no developed infrastructure, but compared to the Central Beach it is not so crowded. It is adjacent to the campsite area, where you can put a tent. Parasol and sun lounger rental is available nearby. The order is monitored by the rescue team.

Note! It is better to get here by car. The car can be left in the free parking up the road or by the beach at the paid parking.

Beach “Druzhba”

This place is often called “Behind Vulan” by the villagers, and this is justified. The beach is located behind the mouth of the Oulan River. Get here in several ways. For example, across a suspension bridge. In this case, the road will take about half an hour. An alternative option is offered by local boatmen, who for a small fee will transport you to the other side in just a couple of minutes. The beach stretches for 200 meters, its width is 50 meters. The only disadvantage of this secluded place is the complete lack of infrastructure.
