A Romanian aquaculture and tourism development company has revealed plans to build the Black Sea's largest holiday resort.

AgriEuro Corp owns over 4,000 acres of land in the Danube Delta – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and has earmarked the area as an ideal location for an “all-inclusive entertainment and accommodation resort with an exotic surrounding landscape, a mild climate and unique geographical features.”

The company has hired Romanian architects and constructors Tehnomontaj to conduct a feasibility study and design accommodation and leisure facilities for 620 guests.

The initial vision for the resort has two main components: a hotel and spa on the shore of the Black Sea and a complex of eco cabins spread across a nearby 5-acre island. These will be linked by a 5km promenade where guests can walk, cycle and participate in bird watching, fishing and photography.

The resort would also offer hunting trips and water sports activities.

Tehnomontaj will now conduct a geotechnological study of the area to explore how the resort may be built in as sustainable way as possible and how it can be made accessible by land, air and sea. AgriEuro Corp already owns a number of properties in the area, and these are likely to be renovated to house some facilities for the resort.

"We are very excited to start on this preliminary phase of our resort,” said AgriEuro CEO Radu Cosmin Monda. “We plan to respect all rules of conservation of our unique UNESCO World Heritage Site during this entire process."

Once completed, the company estimates that the resort will average an occupancy rate of 70 per cent during the high season. Rooms will cost up to €200 per night (£114, US$217).

A timeline and budget for the project have not yet been set.

A number of European investors have identified the shores of the Black Sea as ripe for development. Starwood’s Le Meridien hotel brand will open in Batumi, Georgia in 2018; architects Soare & Yokina Arhitecti Asociati (SYAA) are designing a nature-themed science museum complex in Constanta, Romania; and international studio Perkins+Will are masterplanning a new city near Istanbul, Turkey.
