Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort provides a new upscale stay with eco-conscious accommodation in the UNESCO World Heritage Bay of Kotor.

The hotel has opened following the extensive refurbishment and expansion of the existing property, with inspiration taken from the surroundings for its design.

Entry to Montenegro

The first Hyatt hotel in Montenegro, Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort promises an authentic immersion into the locale. Aimed at both international and domestic travellers, this contemporary property is ideally located on the outskirts of Kotor and overlooking the Montenegrin coastline.

“The Balkan region serves as a driving force for the rapid growth of the hospitality industry, and our Hyatt Regency brand is strategically positioned to enter emerging markets,” said Takuya Aoyama, vice president development for Hyatt. “We are honoured to work with Krolbay d.o.o. Podgorica to bring our resort experience to one of Europe’s most rapidly developing destinations.”

Saša Saveljić, executive director of the hotel’s ownership group and operator, Krolbay d.o.o Podgorica, added: “We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of the newly transformed Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort following extensive refurbishments and expansions.”

“The property draws inspiration from the surrounding area to offer guests, locals and World of Hyatt members a stay centred around relaxation and tranquillity, creating the ultimate stress-free experience.”

The Mediterranean lifestyle

Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort embodies an eco-design approach placing emphasis on blending indoor and outdoor space. The hotel is currently open in its first phase. On completion, the property will encompass 205 guest rooms.

This accommodation is complemented by an array of amenities ranging from two outdoor pools and an indoor pool to a dedicated space for yoga and pilates, a fitness centre and an expansive spa. The hotel also offers private waterfront access.

On completion the hotel will have six food and beverage venues: the a la carte Restaurant Lighthouse that’s inspired by the Mediterranean coastal yachting lifestyle, The Blue Restaurant focusing on a medley of local and international dishes, The Hedonist Rooftop Restaurant offering modern interpretations of traditional Balkan dishes, and three bars catering to guests day to night.

These public areas are joined by a range of event spaces accommodating between 10 and 160 guests.
