The Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos is the hotel group's first property in the country
Rixos has arrived in Montenegro with its first hotel, The Heritage Grand Perast.
Reopened in April under the all-inclusive brand as the Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hotel underwent a two-year renovation to become an immersive resort destination offering guests a luxury experience.
To mark the occasion, a signing ceremony took place at the hotel and was attended by the prime minister of Montenegro, Dr Dritan Abazović and Rixos chief business officer Francois Baudin.
The hotel is housed in a restored 18th-century palace, one of only 16 preserved palaces in Perast, a picturesque coastal town on the Bay of Kotor, surrounded by views of mountains and crystal-clear waters.
Enjoying this prime location on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, the hotel comprises four buildings – Smekja, Jadran, Grado and Teodo – and there are 130 rooms, including eight duplex rooms, a Royal Suite and Royal Duplex Suite.
The Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos will also be home to a diverse range of restaurants and bars, including Panoramic, a restaurant located on the first floor of Smekja; Piazza, a restaurant serving a range of a la carte dishes, and three seafront terraces including Riva, situated next to the outdoor swimming pool.
The hotel’s spa features an 18-metre indoor heated swimming pool, hammam, sauna and ice fountain, and a private beach.
Rixos chief business officer Francois Baudin said: "Rixos has been exploring Montenegro for some time, and we are delighted to have found such an incredible and beautiful home with The Heritage Grand Perast.
"The unique hotel fits perfectly with Rixos' vision of creating havens away from the busy world for guests to escape and be entertained. We’re excited to welcome guests back to an iconic hotel with a Rixos influence."
