  • Day to night entertainment

Location Information


• On the beachfront, separated by a promenade
• 200m from the shops
• 24km from Varna city

The Riu Astoria shed its shrink-wrap in summer 2019, so you’ll be looking at an uber-modern beachfront hotel with a busy activity agenda.

A beach is within easy reach, too – it’s just over the promenade. Here, you’ll be able to settle into reserved loungers. If you fancy a break from sunbathing, the town centre’s only 10 minutes’ stroll away.

Please Note

While you're away, you can speak to us anytime - we're available 24/7 via the TUI App. You can also reach us by phone and SMS if you prefer. The easy-to-use TUI App is packed with info and tips. It sends you important updates, like your airport transfer times. Download the TUI App for free from the App Store or Google Play - if you switch on notifications, we'll be able to keep you updated.

Pools

There’s two outdoor pool for everyone here, plus a small-scale number for little ones. A waterside bar takes care of any cravings. And, on cooler days, you’ll also be able to dip into an indoor pool - there's a kids' section here, too.

Food & Drink

You’ll be able to see chefs create dishes on the spot at the buffet restaurant’s show-cooking stations. Its spread will have a different theme twice a week, too.

The restaurant scene doesn’t stop there, either. Some nights you’ll be able to sample exotic fare at the Asian restaurant. And when that’s not open, there’s an Italian for high-carb binges.

Entertainment

A couple of times a week, you’ll be able to pull up a chair and watch shows or live music.

Sports & Activities

You’ll have the option of breaking up sun-worshipping with aerobics, darts and bowls. Younger ones, meanwhile, have a hotel-run children’s club and a playground to flock to.

Health & Beauty

From sauna sessions to soothing massages – it’s all on offer at the spa*. There’s also a gym.

Facility Overview

You’ll be well looked after on all fronts at this place. There’s a mix of indoor and outdoor pools, plus two for children. Daytime activities include water polo, bowls and trips to the spa, while nights are filled with occasional live music and shows. As for food, you’ll have the choice of a buffet place, an Italian and an Asian restaurant.
