A massive 52 million euro project is set to begin the transformation of the luscious Vis island, bringing it to a higher level regarding tourism. With an investment of 52 million euros in the construction of a new exclusive hotel in Komiza, Marriott’s lifestyle brand Autograph Collection will debut in Croatia.

The company Modra Spilja will initiate the transformation of Vis island. Komiza will get a five-star hotel that will fit entirely into the surrounding natural environment and the view of the city.

In addition to the investor, the architectural studio 3LHD, the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey agency and the company Hotel & Destination Consulting have been engaged in the realisation of this project, which has been underway for the last year.

It’s already known that an integral segment in the up-and-coming Komiza hotel will be wellness, which will recreate the famous Blue Cave attraction on the island of Bisevo, with a number of indoor and outdoor pools and facilities surrounded by a rich Mediterranean garden. The hotel itself will consist of several smaller buildings connected by corridors.

The preliminary design bears the signature of the Zagreb-based company 3LHD. A completely different concept of the hotel will now be built, with almost the same number of rooms but with a significantly reduced environmental impact and total visibility from the sea. Under the Autograph Collection brand, there are about a hundred hotels on five continents, most of them in Europe, Central America and the Caribbean.

The new Autograph Collection Vis is expected to open its doors in 2025.
