Burgas is a port city, so why not stay in a hotel that reflects the city’s international trade history? The Promenade is a glamorous, beautifully restored house built at the turn of the century by French and Bulgarian architects. The Art Nouveau building, complete with Greek marble and Slovenian wood, excels at understated luxury with a seaside flair.

Alternatively, spend the day enjoying the fresh air onsite – there’s an outdoor movie theatre, a yoga studio and an incredible deck illuminated by string lights for nighttime dinner and drinks.

On the northern shore of Burgas Bay is the residential neighbourhood of Sarafovo, where you can stay just a staircase away from the beach. The resort’s rooms feel like residential apartment suites, with pleasing neutral colours accented by yellows and blues. Staying outside the city centre has other perks, too. The local wineries of Pomorie – where wine was first produced in the first century BCE – are right down the street for you to visit.
