The results are very interesting, some are expected, but there is a plenty of surprises, which is why we have decided to share this information with you.
We present you the most interesting projects in the category of TOURISM, ENTERTAINMENT AND RECREATION.
For a few years now in our generating the list, we have the same thought – it must be that hoteliers know something more than we do. It must be Belgrade craves for accommodation capacities since only last year saw the openin of a few hotels. There are garni and boutique hotels among them and funds were poured in the high category hotels as well.
The first-ranked is the most exclusive newly-opened hotel in Belgrade- Radisson Blu Old Mill. Austrian Soravia Group implemented the project and the hotel will be a part of famous, Carlson Rezidor hotel countries group, operating in 108 and has 1.352 hotels. Former Old Mill in late 2014 got the new look between Mostarska petlja and BIGZ building and a business tower with ten floors was built next to it as well.
(Radisson Blu Old Mill Hotel) Early last year, Kostic’s MK Group went into the mountains which made it second-ranked. So after experience in Kopaonik, MK Mountain Resort got a new member in Belgrade. A four-star hotel, 88 Rooms, located in Takovska street at the location of former Takovo centar. The hotel has seven floors, on 3.000 m2. As the name suggests, the hotel offers 88 rooms and suites.
The third-ranked went to the arrival of Constantine the Great to Belgrade. Although we have still been waiting for the official promotion of the Constantine the Great hotel, located at 27. Mart street, there is no doubt that there is interest for it at least according to eKapija’s readers’ interest.
In early March, in famous Belgrade quarter, Savamala, Jump Inn hotel was opened. Located in the building from 1924 which is protected by the state, the four-star hotel became a new symbol of this part of the capital. Jump Inn hotel, at the corner of Zagrebacka and Karadjordjeva streets, is a part of Triple Jump group set up by former Yugoslav Olympic player, Milan Spasojevic. Therefore comes the inspiration for the hotel name – jump in the hotel and the facility jumped in the fourth position of our ranking list.
The sixth-ranked is Zepter Apart hotel which is the first high class apart hotel in Belgrade. It has seven floors, 32 accommodation units and 37 bedrooms, 25 of which are suites with fully-equipped kitchens while there are seven delux rooms. A total of EUR 12 m was invested in the hotel opened in December and 35 people were hired.
Among new hotels in Belgrade, there is a winery or a heaven on the Earth as we called it. Sapat wine atelier below Novi Slankamen provides unique feeling for a soul, eyes and palate. There are two luxurious suites and four rooms and owners of the Sapat atelier also own Belgrade-based hotel Townhouse 27.
Kopaonik will soon get a luxurious tourist complex Vizzion – Vrhovi Srbije. Thus, the ninth position goes to the facility planned for elite tourism. Planned facility capacity is 1.400 beds.
The tenth-ranked went to spa complex in Palic. Palic should, in line with the announcements, get a spa and hotel complex and one of key facilities of the Palic resort is an aqua park.
