If Budva really wants to become an elite summer resort, except luxurious hotels, crazy VIP parties under the clear blue sky far from the eyes of the public, precious yachts, it will have to get accustomed to the arrival of guests who are ready to bring loads of money, and to be at the same time a nightmare until all their extravagant caprices are fulfilled.
As by an unwritten rule, the richer they are, the stranger their wishes, and the hoteliers have to have in their offer everything which can satisfy such a “spoiled guest”.
The story about the Hollywood stars and their caprices everyday is filling the columns of world tabloids so everything looks like a big game who will make a greater chaos in some of the hotels. From insisting that they want a separate room for their pet, and that their shoes must have a proper treatment, up to the menu from which every educated chef in Montenegro would get dizzy are only details which separated VIP persons, as well as those who are considered to be jet-set from mortals.
Montenegrin hoteliers already this summer are facing imaginative guests and their extravagant caprices which is a good foreplay for all upcoming years because Montenegro is represented as a new top destination by all leading tour operators.
Probably wanting to discover the country which James Bond chose for his spy romantic adventures guests are expecting that they will be able to satisfy their adventurer spirit in this small country.
We should mention that exactly those tourists are best advertising for a hotel, of course if they leave the hotel pleased, because such a spoiled guests will bring at leats a doezn of his dear friends who also wish to have great time.
Maybe the best test occurred this summer when the popular Stones came in Splendid in Becici where they were surprised with great service. Namely after the dinner, which was abundant in specialties,, such as tartar made of tuna, lobster salad, mocarela, and soup made of cucumbers and nana, Mick Jager and his friends were surprised that the management of the hotel remembers to specially order from America some “small things” which they like to eat. So Jager was thrilled by the fact that without asking for that he was served with his favorite coffee Starbucks and Haagen-Dazs ice-cream, as well as Ocean spray cranberry juice which the management fo the hotel specially ordered from America. And all of that started three years ago when, suddenly Russian oil company Tjumenska group decided to organize their year gathering in the town hotel Sveti Stefan. What the people would say, first year the management of the hotel had a headache from rakish Russian oil businessmen who only asked for specialties. Already next year, when they once again organized their year gathering the Saint shone so the Russian oligarchs had at their disposal everything starting from yachts to the luxurious beach equipment.
Almost all Budva hoteliers this summer have prepared themselves well so in each of the hotels there is a story about the “crazy demands” of guests.
Splendid already now is expecting the arrival of big VIP group who wanted to have their every day organized as it is for the actors in the movie Casino Royale, the last in the series about the agent 007 which promoted this Montenegrin hotel in the world.
As they say in the management of the hotel everything that can be bought with the money the guest can get it from any part of the world.
We shouldn’t forget that the management of the hotel has managed to meet the needs of one of the British guests who asked to get down from Brajici with a paraglide. The story wouldn’t be strange if it wasn’t a vital man who has entered the 8th decade. Every day they receive demands for eccentric meals, as well as those that they want their pets strolled beside the sea. That is why liftboys are always ready.
As a special offer Splenid for those picky ones has provided a helicopter so they can go for a dinner on Zabljak, which is also one of the offers, or they can maybe rent a yacht with a romantic dinner in the open sea. Splendid has tried to meet the needs of all those who like extreme sports.
The Queen of Montenegro hotel is not a bit behind. It offers to its guests a total discretion and comfort. From the meal in bed, to diet specialties, total privacy. Those are all “normal” demands, which they meet. That confirms the fact that several popular starts such as Natasa Bekvalac and her husband Daca Ikodinovic have chosen the Queen for their vacation where they are guaranteed that the paparazzi will not be able to take pictures of them.
– For us spoiled guests does not exits, because all that they demand we can fulfill. That is why we are the hotel with highest category – they say in the Queen.
Milocer Mastral from its opening almost every season has guests which with its demands stand out from other people. Most popular football player on Italy Francesco Totti and their film diva Nenci Brill are only some starts who stayed in this hotel in which they had a full treatment which were accompanied by total silence and discretion.
Judging by all, hoteliers with impatience are expecting world jet setters and are also gladly waiting to meet their demands. That gives a realistic picture that we are slowly entering in the circle of fancy summer resorts.
Hopper hoped into my sleeve
That Montenegrins are not just kind but also irresistible was testified by many foreign female tourists who were enchanted by the allures of “highland mentality”.
The story goes like this. Everything is taking place in Becici in the Queen of Montenegro. A tourist from Scandinavia is scared because a big hopper is in her suite. She goes down to the reception to ask for that “beast” to be removed from her room. She was welcomed at the reception by a handsome young man who went with her to her suite. Even though the man from the reception managed to throw out the hopper, the tourist, whether from the shock which she experienced or from the emotion which were stirred in her asked the young guy to stay in her room all night in order for the hopper not to appear again.
The epilogue of the story is that after the summer vacation she once again came to Montenegro and took him with herself.
As we found out on the e-mail address of this hotel they daily receive notes of female guests who are sending pictures of waiters, liftboys, beach rescuers who they noticed while they were staying in the hotel, demanding to get details in order to contact them.
So, Montenegro is really an irresistible destination, it was and it is.
