IHG is expanding its footprint with the latest re-branding of voco® Podgorica hotel located just outside of the historic capital city of Montenegro. Surrounded by rugged mountains and is close to Skadar Lake National Park, an area noted for its diversity of flora and fauna, the new property comprises 81 guest rooms, 3 versatile meeting rooms, wellness and spa club featuring an Olympic half size pool, gym, spa and treatment rooms, as well as a restaurant and a bar.
The hotel guest rooms benefit from the voco™ design concept, which includes sustainable initiatives to help guests sleep easier. voco™ bedding is made from 100% recycled materials, with an estimated 150 plastic bottles recycled per guest room through bedding alone. In addition, miniature bottles have been removed from the hotel, and have been replaced with bulk size Korres products in large-format bottles which produce 80% less waste than miniatures. Glass water bottles mean that the hotel removes an average of 300 plastic bottles in every guest room per year and the hotel also provides aerated showerheads in their bathrooms to reduce water usage.
Milena Brajovic, General Manager, voco® Podgorica said: “We are excited to be the first voco™ property to open in South-Eastern Europe. Our hotel offers guests the opportunity to relax in a rural setting whilst only being a short distance from a truly historic and beautiful city. voco™ is all about delivering great guest experience and we look forward to offering a warm welcome to guests, old and new, when they choose to stay with us.”
