LOCATION

In the town of Meljine, the Venetians constructed a lazaretto in 1732. The building overlooks the strategically important entrance to the Bay of Kotor. In its golden days, the building served as a checkpoint for product import and a quarantine station for sailors who returned from long voyages across the seven seas. The lazaretto built here was the first stop for merchant ships in the South Adriatic seas, where sailors had to quarantine for at least 40 days. Russian investors with a knack for details thoroughly revamped the representative building. In 2018, the historical part of the hotel first opened its doors. An annexe building soon followed with 104 hotel rooms and a small marina. The strategic position of the hotel is exquisite and unbelievably scenic. You are bound to be astonished by the vistas of the most narrow part of Kotor Bay.

ACCESSIBILITY

The hotel boasts an attractive location near the entrance to the Bay of Kotor and is easily accessible from the airport in Dubrovnik or Tivat. Both airports have solid global connections, at least during the summer. In the off-season, Dubrovnik is undoubtedly the preferred option. Lazure Hotel & Marina has excellent shuttle service, and as expected of a five-star hotel, it ensures comfort above all. Guests arriving by car will find enough space for their vehicles in the hotel’s parking garage. The hotel offers its guests electric bicycles, ideal for exploring the surroundings. We recommend embarking on a boat trip if you seek the most scenic views. The legendary winding promenade “Pet Danica” connects the hotel to the charming historical centre of Herceg Novi. A half-hour stroll will reward you with stunning views, scents and an enjoyably mild Mediterranean climate. We warmly recommend it!

COLD STARTER - Architecture and aesthetics

The historical part of the complex comprises seven buildings interconnected by an enclosed courtyard. Envisaged as a monumental complex, the hotel follows the timeless architectural heritage of the Venetians. Investors carefully renovated the historical part, entirely preserving the Chapel of St. Rocco. Combined with glass elements, the structure appears elegant and exudes a prestigious feel. We can undoubtedly confirm the historical part of the hotel is among the most original and memorable Adriatic hotels. Given the hand-picked furniture, the hotel could easily be a designer hotel. Although the newly-constructed annexe building is less spectacular architecture-wise, it blends seamlessly with the surroundings from the seaside. Among the countless eye-catching details, the daring abstract canvas works of painter Ljubomir Popadić truly stand out. Inspired by the picturesque diversity of the Bay of Kotor, his art makes a strong impression.

WARM ENTRÉE - The staff and the culinary experience

The staff is worthy of five stars. Characterised by kindness and hospitality, they are absolute professionals. After a long and hectic tourist season, they maintain a top-tier level. That is evident while observing the joyful receptionist and the entire team working at Rosemarine Restaurant. The personnel working in service is exceptional, and their wine knowledge is impressive. Wine tastings often take place in the wine cellar, which holds an array of superb wines from Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia and elsewhere. At Rosemarine Restaurant, the menu follows the philosophy of less is more, adding a local twist and highlighting healthy Mediterranean cuisine. The restaurant’s tuna tartare is at the forefront of the Montenegrin gastronomy scene. Likewise, a superb trend-setting breakfast awaits guests, although served in the modern Residential Building. It undoubtedly meets expectations, offering a tasteful and unforgettable sweet ending starring tiny fruit pies. The utterly friendly concierge Anna ensured the breakfast ran smoothly and welcomed every guest with a smile. That is what makes the hotel stand out from the competition.

MAIN COURSE – The meetings offering at the hotel

Hotel rooms

Can you imagine a hotel room where you would decide on a prolonged stay? Perhaps somewhere that would prove ideal and spacious enough to meet your expectations as a digital nomad? The suite in the Lazure Hotel & Spa ticks all the boxes. A combination of stone wall covering and modern designer furniture has immense appeal. The white wooden headboard contributes to the excellent impression. The slightly cold floor, covered in tiles, complements the quality carpets that continue in the lobby. What gives the room aesthetic character are the gigantic pictures by Ljubomir Popadić. They teleport one to stunning beaches and bays of Herceg Novi. Lastly, the bathroom thrills guests with premium cosmetics and incredible functionality. The hotel room ensures a fantastic experience in the historical part with a modern spin.

Meetings centre

The Orjen Hall is undoubtedly one of the most authentic meeting halls in the Adriatic. With the enclosed atrium and bar, it forms a convincing whole. The hall can capacitate 156 guests and features world-class equipment. Next to it, Lovčen Hall offers space for up to 210 attendees. The hotel edges out its competition with impressive terraces, a garden and outdoor event venues. Regardless of the season, the entire premises offers countless choices for organising events.

FINAL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY

Within the resort, they meticulously preserved the chappel of St. Rocco, a saint venerated as the protector against the plague. Seemingly, the spirit of this genius loci looms over the resort, which is ideal for incentive travel and exclusive events. As the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Ivo Andrić wrote about Herceg Novi – a place of endless greenery, sun, climate and rich history. The hotel embodies all that with an authentic spirit. Its potential can elevate an event to a world-class level. Many demanding events held here are proof of that.

Among prestigious hotels on the Montenegrin Coast, Lazure Hotel & Spa is possibly the most avant-garde. It aims to attract event organisers who seek something out of the ordinary with its attention to detail. Such meeting planners are growing in numbers, and Lazure Hotel & Spa thus has a bright future.
