Meli· Grand Hermitage is an All Inclusive hotel steps away from Golden Sands beach in the north of Bulgaria. The resort, which is backed by forests, is one of the biggest on the shores of the Black Sea. The sandy beach stretches on for kilometres and is known for its calm waters. The hotel has several pools, water slides and a shallower children's pool. There's an indoor pool, a spa, sauna and steam room to help you relax. The hotel has a garden, which also serves as a venue for evening fun organised by the hotel's entertainment team. Sporting activities are on offer, too, such as water aerobics in the pool. The dining options at Meli· Grand Hermitage are varied, with a choice of three buffet restaurants. There are also several places to enjoy snacks like ice cream throughout the day and evening.

If you fancy a change, Golden Sands resort is a short stroll away and has restaurants, cocktail bars and pubs, along with clubs and cafÈs that stay open until the small hours. The forest behind Golden Sands Beach is a protected area for wildlife and contains more than 500 species of plants and 78 different kinds of birds, including the rare goshawk and golden oriole. Nature lovers can take a walk in the forest and look out for wild animals such as tortoises, pine martens, red deer and boar.
The protected area behind Meli· Grand Hermitage includes several natural hot springs with a temperature between 18-248C.

It was an amazing experience for me and my wife to choose this place. Everything was awesome from starting to end. I found the hotel very clean, the staff was friendly, smiling and polite, always ready to help. Covid 19 measures were strictly observed and every staff member wore masks, gloves and helmets. Rooms were nice and large, regularly cleaned every day. Meals were pretty delicious. In all bars there was a large selection of soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and cocktails.The coffee was fantastic. The hotel is situated just in the middle of Golden Sands resort. And an excellent review for the Manager Sedat Karani. He is very profesional, friendly and exceptionally helpful and he made our vacation to feel like we are home. All in all we had a very nice holiday and we highly recommend this hotel. Definetly we will come again here, thanks a lot❤️!
Hello all, we highly recommend this hotel, we are really happy that we have spent one week here.

We will go back for sure!
This was our first trip to Bulgaria, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary there from a couple of reasons, water park, view, services provided on-site. We were not disappointed, the overall impression was EXCELLENT. We got a seaview room, the room was big and clean. The staff was committed and really nice. Now let me tell you about the FOOD 😂😂😂, it was amazing, (of course if you don't go to all inclusive just to eat, the food was plenty) i would like to thank the chef from this resort with the following message, YOUR LAMB AND VEAL WAS AMAZING.
Of course I would also like to give a big round of applause to the restaurant help, everything was as it was supposed to be.
I'll surely return to Melia,
