Helena Sands details

Built to mirror traditional Bulgarian architecture, this hotel is all red-tiled roofs cascading down to Sunny Beach’s sands. Overlooking the scene is a stonework clocktower topped by a weather vane - just like you’d find in a Bulgarian village square.

More by way of striking design lies within. Take the lobby. Awash with gleaming marble and espresso-leather armchairs, it’s finished with oyster-pink drapes and a grandfather clock. Even grander is the staircase that sweeps to the upper floors under elaborate chandeliers. The bedrooms, meanwhile, show a lighter touch. All peaches-and-cream elegance, they’re dressed with dainty off-white furniture and sofas. And everything is complemented by satellite TVs, minibars and balconies.

The pool, meanwhile, is set in to wide sun terraces. It’s home to a fancy metal pergola that morphs into an illuminated water feature by night. Pull up a chair at the hotel’s Dolphin fish restaurant and you’ll have a ringside seat for the light-and-water show.

The facilities here are impressive too. There’s a wellness centre, tennis and beach volleyball on offer.

The last word though has to go to the location. The Helena has grabbed what is probably one of the best spots in Sunny Beach. It’s at the quieter end of the resort, facing the beach. And on a more practical note, the town centre is also within easy striking distance - just a 15-minute or so stroll away.
