Budva – Minister of tourism, Predrag Nenezic said that there is a great interest of the European market for the arrangements of “Budva Rivera”. Those are, he says, good indicators that the next season will be more successful than this year’s season.
Even though the management of the HTE has made the decision to raise the last year’s prices for 10%, all the foreign investors have continued their cooperation. The majority of the capacities of Slovenska plaza and Palas have already been sold out at the prestigious foreign markets.
– It is encouraging that Budva Riviera has already started preparation for the following tourist season. I am glad that those hotels, which will be opened first, and those will be Palas and Aleksandar, already on the 4th of April will take in first guests. In the preparation of the capacities for the next season, this HTE will invest around 700.000 euros. What particularly makes me happy is the adaptation of the hotel capacities for the next season which has already began, and not like previous years when it usually began in February and March – said Nenezic.
The director of Sector for the development of HTE Ljubo Radjenovic said that the plans of the adaptation of Palas and Slovenska plaza have been made.
– Having in mind that we had an extremely successful season, we have provided the money for the investment from our own resources. We are planning to renew the furniture and the sanitaria in hotels. The foreign partners with whom we have cooperation, are expecting that the services and the furniture in hotels should be at the European level. Such criteria mean that the room has to have air conditioning, cable TV, mini – bar, and new furniture – said Radjenovic.
According to the official records, in hotels of “Budva Riviera“during the season 2006, there were 442.000 overnight stays. Foreigners made 347.000 thousands or 80% of the total number of overnight stays.
2.200 TOURISTS REGISTERED
-From the total of 2.201 guests, the number of tourists which are currently registered in Montenegro, 1/3 of them is staying at Budva Riviera – those are the official records of the local Tourist organization.
As it was said from the TO Budva, 741 guests are registered, which two times more than it was the case at the end of November last year.
– Hotel keepers have accommodated 711 guests of whom 381 are foreigners, while 330 are domestic tourists. Even though there are no precise data, it is estimated that in private accommodation there are about 30 foreign guests – it is stated in the announcement of TO Budva.
