The Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos opened in April, marking Rixos Hotels entry into the Montenegro market.
The property is housed in a restored 18th-century palace, one of only 16 preserved palaces in Perast, a coastal town on the Adriatic Sea’s Bay of Kotor. Its Baroque architecture is a tribute to the culture and history of the location.
The palace’s buildings were fully renovated over the last two years. The hotel reopened with four buildings – Smekja, Jadran, Grado, and Teodo – offering 130 rooms, including eight duplex rooms, a Royal Suite, and Royal Duplex Suite.
Drink and dining options at The Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos include Panoramic, a restaurant located on the first floor of Smekja Palace; Piazza, a restaurant serving a range of à la carte dishes; and three seafront terraces including Riva, which is situated next to the outdoor swimming pool.
The hotels also features a spa with an 18-meter indoor heated swimming pool, hammam sauna and ice fountain, and a private beach dock where guests can enjoy cocktails and snacks.
The Heritage Grand Perast by Rixos is a 20-minute drive from Kotor – also a UNESCO World Heritage Site that covers Perast – and is easily accessible from Tivat and Podgorica sirports.
“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,” said Francois Baudin, chief business officer, Rixos. “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.”
“Over the past two years, we have lovingly and painstakingly renovated The Heritage Grand Perast, a historic palace rich in culture and importance to the local area,” said Branco Cupic of Imobilia. “We’re delighted to partner with Accor and Rixos, who will breathe new life into the guest experience from start to finish.”
