Summer is the best time for complete relaxation. What can I say: the painful heat, hot asphalt and working days under the air conditioner certainly do not contribute to productivity. To regain your strength, it’s not necessary to give up everything and go to a three-month wellness retreat somewhere in California. There are enough places in Ukraine where you can relax with the same effect in less time. We chose the best of them.
Selfish Club is a paradise for family holidays. The club is located on the banks of the Dnieper in the village of Kiilov, 55 kilometers from the capital, where in ancient times Prince Kyi was fishing.
Modern sport fishing on club lakes is an exclusive club line that will appeal not only to men, but to the whole family.
Aqua zone with a four-sided infinity pool filled with water from an artesian spring, a beach area equipped with comfortable lounge chairs and a summer shower, green grass and white pebbles brought from the Greek island of Thassos, make the rest even more comfortable.
Leisure activities for children and parents will be provided by a sports ground and a children's play complex, animators and quests, as well as mini golf. You can stay in the room in one of the floating houses. All of them are located on the canal and have their own pier, from which you can take a boat and go out to the “big water” of the Kanevsky reservoir. For large companies and families, a two-storey four-bedroom house with a sauna and a terrace is suitable.
For recreation on the Dnieper Selfish Club offers kayaks, sap boards, electric cards and boats.
The pride of the Selfish Club is the grill house and the menu, based on freshly caught fish and seasonal eco-products. Author's dishes from the menu will complement the rare wines selected by the best sommeliers for three years of the complex. The panoramic windows of the restaurant overlook the Tripoli Rounds.
The novelty of the season is a gazebo on a lake with an underwater room and an aquarium window. This is the first place in Ukraine where you can watch the fish in their natural habitat.
You can come to the club by car, sail by boat or look at the beauty of your native land from a bird's-eye view by helicopter.
