St Regis to open in Belgrade
Starwood Hotels & Resorts has announced it will open a 125-room St. Regis Belgrade in 2019. The hotel will be operated alongside 220 St. Regis-branded residences in Kula Belgrade, the country’s highest mixed-use tower that will form the centerpiece of the new Belgrade Waterfront development. It will join the W Belgrade.
The Kula Belgrade (Belgrade Tower in English) is 550 feet tall and overlooks the Sava River and Kalemegdan Fortress. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Global, it will have an observation deck at the top of the tower and 220 St. Regis branded residences ranging from 750 to 1700 square feet spread across the 14th and 39th floors.
The St. Regis Belgrade hotel will occupy the first nine floors of Kula Belgrade looking out to the city or River Sava. The hotel will have a restaurant at the top of the tower, an all-day dining venue and the St. Regis Bar, inspired by the iconic King Cole Bar at The St. Regis New York. Leisure facilities will include a spa, pool, gymnasium, and unrivalled event and meeting space for special celebrations.
Situated along the Sava River, Belgrade Waterfront will feature commercial hubs, hotels, educational institutions, healthcare amenities, a 1.1 mile long public waterfront and parks featuring leisure attractions. The project will also feature a Cultural District and Historic Plaza as well as the W Belgrade and The Residences at W Belgrade which are scheduled to open in 2019.
