Millennium Resorts and the American hotel operator Marriott International yesterday signed an agreement on the construction of a hotel complex in Vranjska Banja.
On behalf of the two companies, the agreement on cooperation was signed by Silvija Lovreta, the Director for South Eastern Europe for International Hotel Development at Marriott International, and Ivan Bosnjak, the Director of Millennium Resorts, says the press release.
The director of the company Millennium Team, Stojan Vujko, said that Millennium would invest EUR 90 million in the project and that 350 jobs would be created in the process, Tanjug news agency reported.
The director of Millennium Resorts, Ivan Bosnjak, said that the complex would have two hotels from the Marriott Chain, as well as the Sofka medical centre, a spa, apartments, villas and bungalows.
The hotel complex in Vranjska Banja will be built in four phases, the last one of which should be completed in 2026 and will have features and the level of service the kinds of which do not exist in this part of Europe, said Nikola Avram, the director of the company Alpha Hotel Management, which will manage the complex.
Following the signing of the agreement on the investment in this tourist-spa complex, worth EUR 90 million, he explained that, in the next 20 years, Marriott will give Millennium the franchise so that all the features and the service quality would meet the high standards of the world’s biggest hotel chain.
“The first phase of the construction should be over by April or May 2023 and entails the construction of the Westin Hotel Vranjska Banja, which will be the best hotel in Serbia. The Sofka Medical Centre will be developed next door. This is a novelty in the Serbian market, modelled after similar projects in Austria, Germany and northern Italy,” said Avram.
The Westin hotel will span over 40,000 square metres, have a total of 190 rooms and apartments, of which 20 apartments will have direct access to a private pool directly. The spa alone will span 4,000 square metres and will feature the women-only spa, one-of-a-kind in Serbia. The hotel will have four restaurants, five bars, a children club and a gym.
