As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, this summer, Adriatic Luxury Hotels (ALH) will bring a hotel brand in the segment of small luxury boutique hotels to Croatia’s southernmost town, under which the newly renovated Hotel Supetar will operate.
The investment worth almost two million kuna per room includes a thorough renovation of Hotel Supetar, which had three stars before its reconstruction, but is located in a top location in Cavtat. The hotel will join the luxury offer developed by ALH, mostly in nearby Dubrovnik, and this is also the largest investment of this hotel group this year.
As reported by the ALH earlier this week, the renovation of Hotel Supetar in Cavtat is proceeding according to plan, and after a complete and extensive reconstruction of the hotel, this summer will see the openening of a completely new look as a high category heritage hotel.
“As part of the investment, cooperation with one of the world’s leading brands is planned in order for Hotel Supetar to be placed on the prestigious list of exclusive boutique hotels, combining historical charm, respect for rich cultural heritage and modern luxury designed for the most demanding clientele that values privacy and exclusivity. By investing in the thorough renovation of Hotel Supetar, Adriatic Luxury Hotels is continuing with its business policy of continuous investment in the quality and repositioning of their hotels, and thus raising the value of the destination,” they stated from the company.
Although they aren’t yet ready to name this mysterious global brand they’re bringing to Cavtat, their Dubrovnik hotels Excelsior and Bellevue are known to be part of the worldwide chain of independent hotels Small Luxury Hotels (SLH), which has about 520 hotels across more than 90 countries.
Hotel Supetar is located on Cavtat’s beautiful and serene waterfront, in an original three-storey private villa from the 1920s, overlooking the open sea and Cavtat bay. After this complete renovation, Hotel Supetar will have 16 elegant and individually designed rooms. It will be built in a typical traditional style, with lush Mediterranean gardens and airy, spacious areas, and the interior will be an eclectic mix of vintage furniture and eye-catching architectural and art deco details.
The new hotel will also have a swimming pool located in the southern part of the hotel surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean garden, as well as a lounge bar. Special attention will be paid to the gastronomic offer, meaning that the hotel will have a restaurant with Mediterranean specialties where authentic dishes will be served in a romantic al fresco setting with an outdoor terrace, and a newly opened Wine Club will offer a selection of the best wines with a selection of selected specialties.
Of the additional facilities, Hotel Supetar will offer a complete 24-hour concierge service.
This will be one of the 5 ALH hotels operating within the portfolio of the so-called “Dream Collection”, namely Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik, Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik, Hotel Supetar, Villa Agave and Villa Orsula.
