thracian cliffs golf & beach resort
The 18-hole Gary Player Signature Golf Course forms the core of Thracian Cliffs Golf & Beach resort.
Spread over 85 hectares of truly beautiful Cliffside terrain, this golf course has been sculptured to fit perfectly into the landscape and provides golfers with one of the most wonderful golfing experiences imaginable.
Gary Player named this course the "Pebble Beach of Europe" and with an abundance of sea and dramatic Cliffside views from every hole, it is easy to see why. The course provides a tough challenge to any golfer due to both its length and difficulty but it has been designed to be enjoyed by all. Its modern layout means there are several tee options on every hole.
It can be argued that every hole on this course is a signature hole but the 6th is the one that will live long in the memory thereafter. The tee box is some 40 meters above the large green which has been cut into the hillside and is surrounded by the lapping waves of the Black Sea. A daunting shot but one that fills you with pride when your 4 iron shot floats down and hits the green below.
The 7th hole was also a favourite of ours. The teeing box can be found on a small island. From here you can witness some fantastic views of the surrounding sea and the beach. A carry of 150 yards over the sea, to find the fairway, is truly magical and upon hitting the fairway it puts a spring in your step for the other holes to come.
Guests have the option of being accommodated in two quiet and peaceful villages, which are separated by a beautiful lake and also offer a stunning landscape view of the sea.
Marina village is situated on the cliffs, where you will find 64 deluxe, spacious and convenient suites. There are one, two or three bedroom suites all are beautifully decorated in a traditional Bulgarian style. Bedrooms host twin or queen-size beds with LCD TV's and Egyptian cotton sheets.
The Hillside Village is nestled 350m above the sea, hosting 87 suites designed in a crescent shape around three infinity pools. Hillside guests may choose from a studio, two or three bedroom suite, all with incredible views. Accommodations benefit queen-size beds with Egyptian cotton linen, spacious living areas, LCD TV's, wifi internet, and fully equipped kitchenettes.
The cost of a pint at the resort is approximately £2.50 (£0.80p if you travel into Varna) which represents good value considering you are at a five star resort. Dining within the resort is very much recommended and Head Chef Vladimir Stamov ensures that the welcome and service you receive from his staff is first class; just like his food. All head of departments at the resort must speak very good English, so if you need any help or advice its reassuring to know that somebody is on-hand to help.
