Riga home to the Baltics biggest conference Hotel – Silvija Travel Tips

Riga, Latvia’s capital, is a city that has enthralled locals and tourists for centuries. Its picturesque old town, complete with its collection of Art Nouveau buildings and informative museums, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.

Visitors, whether they arrive for business or pleasure, should be sure to visit some of the city’s most impressive landmarks, including Riga Castle, situated on the bank of the River Daugava, and the Freedom Monument, commemorating those who died during the Latvian War of Independence.

Those looking for somewhere to stay when exploring Riga’s many highlights would be wise to consider Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel, the biggest conference hotel in the Baltics. The hotel’s location in the city centre means the most popular sights are just a few minutes walk away, while the onsite leisure facilities, including a spa centre and casino, ensure that there’s plenty to do without even stepping foot outside the hotel.

Corporate travellers staying at the hotel will have access to a conference and event centre that is more than 3,661sq m in size and has 16 adaptable, state-of-the-art meeting rooms capable of hosting 2,500 people. Conference rooms are fitted with high-speed internet, a top-quality sound system and HD projectors.

With 571 rooms and suites, the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel has enough different types of accommodation to ensure all travellers are catered for. Even so, the Radisson Hotel Group has more to offer, boasting seven hotels within Riga. Clearly, it’s not just the city’s wonderful landmarks that will leave visitors spoilt for choice.

Nikki Beach Global Announces Nikki Beach Montenegro – Silvija Travel Tips

Nikki Beach, the family-owned and operated global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand announced today that they are opening a second location in Montenegro. Nikki Beach Montenegro is slated to open in early summer 2020, joining the neighbouring Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Montenegro, which, as previously announced, will open in 2022/2023.

Nikki Beach, which is the first and original luxury beach club concept with 13 locations around the world, has blossomed into a well-respected beach club brand and hotel and resort company. 

Located in Budva and situated on the Bay of Tivat, Nikki Beach Montenegro is a 250-person capacity restaurant and beach club that will focus heavily on the brand’s key elements. In proximity to Porto Montenegro, which is just a ten-minute boat ride away, the property will include a 45-room boutique resort, gym and luxury spa. The property will also showcase spectacular sea and mountain views facing the inside of the fjord with direct water access and two jetties. The location will cater to the yachting community as a top mega-yacht destination.

Nikki Beach Montenegro will feature three dedicated pools, one that is more high energy and two additional relaxation pools for guests who are staying on property. A picturesque waterfall will connect two of the pools and a bridge will be constructed over one pool to cross over towards the seaside. In terms of hotel accommodations, there will be a great mix of large rooms and suites.

“We’re very excited to bring our global brand to a new country,” says Lucia Penrod, CEO of Nikki Beach Global. “Montenegro’s beautiful coastline and scenic mountain ranges will greatly appeal to our loyal brand followers as they travel the world every summer season.”

Nikki Beach Montenegro will showcase the brand’s signature design aesthetic, featuring an inviting décor of all white with wood accents. A palm-tree-lined platform with sunbeds, lounge chairs and cabanas will overlook the water and mountain range. The brand’s six elements of music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film and art will be highlighted throughout the space.

The location will present daytime and dinner service featuring the brand’s globally inspired menu, which incorporates approachable cuisine that is healthful, beautifully presented and prepared with simplicity in mind. Guests will savour oversized seafood platters, tasty sushi boats, colourful salads and global favourites representing the brand’s locations around the world.

Nikki Beach will bring its sought-after musical culture to the venue with resident DJs and musicians, featuring chill house, happy house, deep house, afro house, Latin house and more. An in-house saxophonist, among other musicians, will create an atmosphere that lends itself to lasting memories.

The second project in the area, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Montenegro, is situated on a private peninsula in the bay of Budva and will be part of a luxury private villa development. The property, which is slated to open in 2022/2023, will house 150 rooms and suites, 20 ultra-luxury villas, three individual private beaches, a jetty, Nikki Spa, Tone Gym, and five restaurants including Key West, which is currently open.

“Nikki Beach Montenegro, the restaurant and beach club, will bring an unprecedented level of entertainment, culinary delights and energy to Montenegro this spring,” says Alexander Schneider, President of the Global Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts division. “The adjacent Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Montenegro will combine the best of both worlds, a luxury boutique hotel offering the perfect backdrop to unwind and pamper yourself with the spirit of Nikki Beach.”

Most recently, in a joint venture with Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts EMEA, the brand opened Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini in August of 2019. Additionally, after the location’s best season since opening, Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts embarked on a long-term contract renewal with Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Porto Heli (also in Greece). As recently announced, the brand will also be further growing its portfolio with the addition of Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Sri Lanka, a project that is currently under construction.

Nikki_Beach_Global

This year, Nikki Beach is focused on expansion in the luxury lifestyle industry and the scheduled opening of new locations in the next five years. As the brand adds new properties and projects to the pipeline, we will no longer operate Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Bodrum.

In 2019, Nikki Beach Global celebrated 20 years in business with milestone events at its beach clubs and resorts. The brand was founded by entrepreneur Jack Penrod and his wife Lucia in Miami Beach in 1998. Today, Nikki Beach Global has grown into an international, multifaceted luxury hospitality company with 13 beach clubs around the world, including Versilia, Saint Barth, Saint Tropez, Dubai, Monte Carlo, Marbella and Ibiza, and four hotels and resorts. Nikki Beach Global has offices in Miami, Marbella, Barcelona, Geneva and Dubai.

Luxe Collection Brings First Luxe Hotel to NYC – Silvija Travel Tips

Global hospitality brand Luxe Collection is kicked off 2020 with significant expansion, including Luxe Hotels’ first branded property in New York City, the historic and highly acclaimed Luxe Life Hotel New York. Five additional hotels will join Luxe Collection’s portfolio of boutique 4- and 5-star properties this quarter, including Eurostars Magnificent Mile (Chicago), The Belmont (Dallas), Il Tornabuoni (Florence), CoolRooms Atocha (Madrid), and Zeavola Resort (Koh Phi Phi, Thailand).

In addition to growing the Luxe Collection portfolio, Luxe Hotels’ flagship in Beverly Hills, Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation. The new look is sophisticated and crisp, relaxed and modern. The guestroom interiors are evocative of an elegant residence with their mix of warm wood finishes, soft lighting, refined metals, and lux fabrics. The neutral palette of the rooms extends into the bathrooms with custom-designed wallpaper, brass accent light fixtures, and natural stone countertops. With the addition of two new penthouse suites located on the rooftop, the renovation will bring a completely different look and elegant feel to the Rodeo Drive property.

The Rose Garden Palace in Rome officially rebranded as The Luxe Rose Garden Hotel, becoming the first hotel in Europe to carry the Luxe name. “We are proud to bring the Luxe Hotel brand to New York, to have a location in the heart of Rome, and to further enhance our Flagship hotel in Beverly Hills, which is the only hotel located on the famed Rodeo Drive,” said Harkham.

Portfolio Additions

Luxe Life Hotel New York

A celebrated landmark turned Luxe Hotel, Luxe Life Hotel New York is housed in the former headquarters of LIFE Magazine in Manhattan’s buzzing NoMad neighbourhood. From its prohibition-era bar to incredible artwork, the hotel pays homage to the talented artists, writers, and creative staff who lived and worked in the building. The impeccably appointed guest rooms and suites provide a seamless blend of modern conveniences and historic charm, as well as a destination signature restaurant, The Marilyn. The restaurant will feature enchanting cocktails and delightful cuisine and promises to provide a unique ambience for the curiously cultured traveller.

Located in a restored historic townhouse just off of Via Veneto in Rome, the newly renamed Luxe Rose Garden hotel offers 57 double rooms and 8 spacious suites.

Culture-loving travellers will enjoy a bustling city scene just a short walk away. The hotel’s industrial-chic style—exposed cement ceilings, wooden floors, modern furniture, and avant-garde artistic elements—and exceptional 5-star quality service are the reasons why Eurostars Magnificent Mile is one of the city’s highest-rated hotels.

A new restaurant and two bars in The Belmont’s resort-like atmosphere are sure to provide delectable food and drink in tandem with exceptional service and comfort. The renovation is set for completion in the spring of 2020.

The elegant property is located in one of Florence’s oldest residences and dates back to the end of the 13th century. In the heart of the ancient Palazzo Minerbetti, it provides access to the city’s best shopping, dining, and sightseeing.  Majestically located on the corner between the Tornabuoni, Purgatorio, and Parione streets, three gems in Florentine urbanism, it’s the true definition of modern Renaissance. The rooms are luxuriously furnished and the property offers a gourmet restaurant, bistro, and cocktail bar with an extensive wine collection, sure to satisfy the dining needs of the affluent and leisure traveller alike.

CoolRooms Atocha Madrid

CoolRooms Atocha is a majestic palace house from 1852. Recently reinvented as a luxury hotel, the historic property offers a personalized and memorable stay. Set in one of the most attractive areas of the city, in the heart of the Barrio de las Letras, CoolRooms Atocha is just a short walk from the centre of Madrid. Joining Luxe Collection in March 2020, this hotel includes modern rooms and suites as well as an oasis pool garden, providing a retreat from the buzzing cosmopolitan city. The restaurant and bar, El 34 Pinchos Bar, is a place where the gourmand can taste traditional Madrid in every bite, as it effortlessly recreates cultural flavours and historic dishes, in its 21st-century kitchen.

Mano pirmieji įspūdžiai Niujorke, Beacon viešbutyje – Silvija Travel Tips

Mano pirmieji įspūdžiai Niujorke prasidėjo viesbutyje “Beacon”.
Šis viešbutis įsikūręs Manheteno viršutinėje vakarinėje dalyje, visai šalia Niujorko Centrinio parko. Netoli viešbučio išsidėstę tokie svarbūs statiniai kaip Amerikos gamtos istorijos muziejus,
“Lincoln Center Plaza” ir “Beacon” teatras. Kelios minutės nuo viešbučio – ir jūs jau požeminėje Metro stotyje, iš kur greitai galima pasiekti Niujorko miesto centrinę dalį.

Viešbutyje gali pasijusti lyg namie- puikūs kambariai ir apartamentai su virtuvėlėmis, turinčiomis visą būtiną įrangą maisto gamybai. Kambariuose didžiuliai plokščiaekraniai televizoriai ir belaidis internetas. Puikus Niujorko vaizdas atsiveria žiūrint pro langą. Tiesiog būdamas kambaryje tu gali grožėtis saulėlydžiu tarp didmiesčio dangoraižių.

Viešbutyje yra verslo centras susitikimams, taip pat siūlomos skalbyklos paslaugos ir bagažo saugykla. Šalia vestibiulio yra rami ir patogi erdvė lankytis ar skaityti, ir atsipalaiduoti.
Viešbutis “Beacon” yra labai gerai vertinamas ne tik vietinių niujorkiečių , bet ir svečių iš viso pasaulio dėl labai patogios išsidėstymo vietos, dėl aukšto aptarnavimo lygio, dėl paslaugų suteikiamų svečiams. Į šį viešbutį visada norisi sugrįžti.
