Hotel complex ‘Drop of the Sea’ in the Crimean village Peschanoe is experiencing problems with booking, reports the TRN correspondent.

Maksim Lutsenko, Director of the Complex, says that only 2% of the rooms are booked, while the season starts at the end of May. Traditionally, the bulk of the hotel’s visitors is made up of Russian tourists. Its main partner on the Russian market is ‘Alean’ tour operator.

We have raised the accommodation prices a bit as compared to the last year. For instance, one person can stay in a ‘Standard class’ double room for 1,402–2,196 rubles ($39–$61), depending on the date of arrival. Full board (open buffet) is included in the price. Children before the age of 5 with two parents are admitted free of charge, from 5 to 12 years – with a 50% discount (if they stay as an additional person). I am going to discuss lowering prices with the owner – it is better to cut our losses and settle for a small profit than to have no visitors at all. I will also suggest free admission for kids younger than 12,” said Lutsenko.

Hotel complex ‘Drop of the Sea’ also includes Kazakevich children’s holiday camp, where the situation is clearer.

My hope is to ‘fill’ the camp 100%. We had a visit from Tatarstan officials who want to book our camp for the whole summer in order to send the Republic’s children here,” says Lutsenko.

According to him, other health resort facilities of Peschanoe are experiencing problems with booking. For instance, prices for stay in ‘Chernomorets’ spa resort, which is the main accommodation facility of the resort, were cut 30%, yet the number of bookings remains low.

Currently, the Crimean Federal District is hosting the national convention ‘Holidays in Crimea 2014’.

The event’s program includes seminars devoted to the activities of the accommodation facilities, integrating Crimea’s tourism industry into the Russian legislation, and developing the peninsula’s tourism potential. Topics for discussion include promoting Crimea on the domestic and international markets, personnel training and their further professional development.

Also, federal reporters will be presented the peninsula’s tourist attractions. Journalists spent the first day of the media tour in Bakhchisaray, where they paid a visit to the Khan's Palace, cave city Chufut-Kale, and Uspensky Cave Monastery.
