Budva – Executive director of HTE Budva Riviera Vule Tomasevic based on the decision of the Board of directors has signed an agreement about the breakup of the contract, which was initiated by Austrian Soravia group. From Budva Company they said that they have started direct negotiations with the Hilton company about the construction of a high quality hotel in the area of Slovenska plaza, which Soravia was supposed to build.
The contract with Soravia, which was concluded on January 10th this year, meant the foundation of hotel – tourist enterprise Soravia Budva resort whose goal was dealing with Slovenska plaza, as well as foundation of hotel – tourist enterprise Soravia hotel Montenegro with which through joint investment they predicted the construction of the new Hilton hotel.
Having in mind that the foundation of these enterprises, among other things was conditioned with special obligations of the foreign partner which meant provision of undeniable and unconditional bank guarantees which in the meantime didn’t happen, management of HTE Budva Riviera thought that mutual agreement about the break up of the contract is the best solution for both parties – said Tomasevic.
Budva Riviera in the future dealing is counting on every hotel which is in their ownership, because of which not one of the remaining three hotel complexes will be announced on a tender, but instead on attractive locations through joint investments,, they will build luxurious hotels and with that they will increase their capacities. Tomasevic said that they have invested 800.000 euros in the preparations for this season, and that all hotels are doing extremely well.
