The new Kumbor Hotel is open
In about a year, the company “Carine” based in Podgorica, built a four-star hotel in Kumbor, in Herceg Novi. The hotel has six floors with 230 rooms and suites overlooking the sea, own private beach, parking, SPA center, outdoor pool, indoor swimming pool, conference room and a-la-carte restaurant. City of Herceg Novi is 10 min away, while only 40 min drive is Kotor and airports in Tivat and Dubrovnik.
The Kumbor Hotel received the first group of 250 guests from Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Poland on 12 August. The guests come through the agencies with which “Carine” has an excellent collaboration for years, said Cedo Popovic, the owner of the company.
He added that the hotel was built to the highest standards. With all the services that offers it could even have five stars.
“We already have organized arrivals and I expect that hotel will working good until October – November. This is the first year of activity, but we are counting on the optimal position that will lead us to a good post-season.
So far the company has invested between 25 and 30 million euros in the construction of this structure.
“We will not make the grand opening. The situation required receiving guests as soon as possible. The “Delfin” and “Park” hotels are full and we are filling the other five hotels in Montenegro. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough workers. I would assume 100 people of all profiles and I would not pay anyone less than € 500 up to € 1 500″ said Popovic.
Asked to comment the triple dimensions of the hotel, the arrangement of the land for the beach, which was often followed by the indignation of the inhabitants and the media, Popovic said: “We built exactly what they allowed us. In the beginning we had a permit for the ground floor and two floors. Meanwhile, the plan has been modified and we have been granted permission for the ground floor and six floors. We have also arranged the beach, because it is normal for guests to come to the sea, not the “mountain”.
The hotel is close to the Portonovi complex. It is the third hotel in five years built by the “Carine” company in Herceg Novi.
