Camping South Beach EOOD ("CSB")
During the period, the trend for high domestic demand in the hospitality segment continued from 2020. Camping South Beach strengthened its position as a destination for luxury camping holidays and beach houses, providing a safe environment and adhering to the highest standards for social distancing.
Nevertheless, the expected occupancy levels were adversely influenced due to significant Covid restrictions impacting international travel. However, CSB did benefit from the consequential rise in domestic demand, achieving occupancy levels of 75% in July 2021 and 81.5% in August 2021.
This year marked the first active season under the recently-signed Concession Agreement for the beach and CSB successfully entered into several newly-signed tenancy agreements with restaurant operators.
The Bulgarian tourist segment in 2021 was mainly driven by domestic travel. CSB benefits from the increased trends within the Bulgarian hospitality market towards camping holidays in local markets which allow for social distancing while holidaying within the country.
