Bulgaria – Bulgaria’s biggest casino opens in VarnaBy Phil - 3 July 2013
What claims to be Bulgaria’s biggest live table casino has opened at International Hotel Casino & Tower Suites, following extensive two-year renovations at the hotel at a cost of €20m.
Situated in the heart of the Golden Sands Resort in Varna, Bulgaria, just 90 metres from the beach, the hotel has restructured its architectural design to give the property a more modern look with the help of renowned architect Pavel Ivanov. Ivanov has been involved in projects worldwide, including the Bayan Palace in Kuwait. The five-star luxury hotel has now increased its capacity by 150 per cent to a total of 325 standard and superior rooms, as well as luxury suites and a presidential apartment.
Along with an I-SPA Centre, a unique ‘Skyfall Zone’ which includes an infinity-edge rooftop swimming pool and new restaurants, bars, a theatre and conference facilities, the hotel’s casino has also undergone major refurbishment and expansion, making it the biggest live-game casino in Bulgaria, with a brand new design and 24-hour operation. The new International Poker Club will host regular daily tournaments, cash game tables and major poker events, such as the Eureka Poker Tour and Unibet Open.
General Manager of International Hotel Casino & Tower Suites, Vladimir Filipov commented: “We have been planning and performing the major reconstruction of International Hotel Casino & Tower Suites for the past few years, to be able to call it the ultimate five-star casino hotel with a beach resort location in Europe. Now it is completed and, not only will it bring our already well-established product to a whole new level, but it will also help establish Golden Sands Resort as a high-quality, all-season destination.”
