Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MIAMI — Karisma Hotels & Resorts will open the seaside Holiday Villages Montenegro later this summer, a 257-room hotel geared to families, couples and groups.
Situated on the Montenegrin coast of Ulcinj with views of the Adriatic Sea, the hotel “blends modern convenience and elevated hospitality with effortless glamour”, with selling points for groups of all sizes looking for a European resort vacation, says Karisma.
Suites range from two-bedroom swim-ups to garden view rooms. There are also four restaurants and six elevated bars serving the best beers from Montenegrin breweries. Amenities include spa treatments and a fitness centre along with on-property activities such as tennis, football, high ropes course, and kite surfing at Velika Plaža beach. There’s also nightly professional entertainment in an open-air venue.
“Holiday Villages Montenegro will mark the most luxurious hotel opening in Ulcinj yet,” says Armando Chomat, Chief Marketing Officer of Premier Worldwide Marketing, worldwide representatives for Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “Blending exceptional hospitality with sophisticated dining and endless options for entertainment, we’re confident that Holiday Villages Montenegro will be the premier destination along the Adriatic coast for guests of all ages.”
Holiday Villages Montenegro is located along Long Beach (Velika Plaža) just five kilometres from the historic town of Ulcinj. Landmarks in close proximity include the island of Ada Bojana, Lake Skadar and the Ulcinj Salinas Bird Reserve, home to birds of prey, Dalmatian pelicans and flamingos. The closest airports to the hotel are in Podgorica and Tivat, about 80 kilometres away.
Holiday Villages Montenegro is now available for bookings for stays starting in late summer 2018. Rates start at US$152 per night and represent a savings of up to 20% as part of the grand opening special.
