voco™ opens first property in Montenegro
The eleventh voco™ property and first in South Eastern Europe, is located on the fringe of popular Podgorica

Located just outside of the historic capital city of Montenegro, the hotel is surrounded by rugged mountains and is close to Skadar Lake National Park, an area noted for its diversity of flora and fauna.
Every guest will experience the voco™ signature ‘come on in’ warm welcome, promising a swift and simple check in, with dedicated voco™ hosts available throughout the guest’s stay as resident experts, and a locally inspired welcome treat, a traditional nut cake.
Inspired by its surroundings, voco® Podgorica takes local influences and blends it with contemporary interiors throughout to hotel to leave guests with a lasting impression. The refurbished guest rooms benefit from the voco™ design concept with thoughtful comforts like cosy bedding made from 100% recycled materials, Korres amenities in larger dispenser bottles, and fast Wi-Fi so guests can relax and indulge in some ‘me time’ when they stay at voco™ hotels.
Guests can enjoy a taste of ‘voco™ life’ with delicious, locally inspired dishes at the hotel restaurant or unwind over drinks in the peaceful surroundings of the lobby bar with friends and family. For those looking for pure relaxation, the hotel wellness and spa club featuring an Olympic half size pool, gym, spa and treatment rooms as well as a newly built sports hall offering a wealth of opportunities to unwind.
For those looking for an alternative space for meetings, voco® Podgorica is the ideal venue for corporate events. With 3 versatile meeting rooms, the hotel can adapt to suit your needs whether you need to host a conference or simply require a room for a team outing. A designated onsite event planner will support you from booking to event day to ensure an unstuffy and smooth-running event.
Milena Brajovic, General Manager, voco® Podgorica said: “We are excited to be the first voco™ property to open in South Eastern Europe. Our hotel offers guests the opportunity to relax in a rural setting whilst only being a short distance from a truly historical and beautiful city. voco™ is all about delivering great guest experience and we look forward to offering a warm welcome to guests, old and new, when they choose to stay with us.”
The hotel guest rooms benefit from the voco™ design concept, which includes sustainable initiatives to help guests sleep easier. voco™ bedding is made from 100% recycled materials, with an estimated 150 plastic bottles recycled per guest room through bedding alone. In addition, miniature bottles have been removed from the hotel, and have been replaced with bulk size Korres products in large-format bottles which produce 80% less waste than miniatures. Glass water bottles mean that the hotel remove an average of 300 plastic bottles in every guest room per year and the hotel also provides aerated shower heads in their bathrooms to reduce water usage.
Rooms at voco® Podgorica start from 84€ a night for a room only.
