Nikola Pekic - Jun 02, 2024

The new season is here, and we’re talking to Regional Marketing Director Nikola Milović, who is in charge of iconic products known in the region, such as the Metropol Palace Hotel in Belgrade, Sofia Balkan Palace Hotel in Sofia, and Maison Hotel Sofia-Mgallery Collection.

What ideas and plans do you have for the spring season?

We started the year with a Michelin recommendation, for the second year in a row, for our restaurant, The Twenty Two, which is truly significant for us. We are especially proud to have hosted the first Michelin Masterclass, which brought together chefs from all Belgrade restaurants recommended by Michelin, where in collaboration with the Tourist Organization of Serbia and with the help of two guest Italian chefs awarded with the Green Michelin star, we had the opportunity to witness live the implementation of new low waste philosophy concepts in the kitchen. It’s truly an inspiration that we’ve embraced in preparing our new spring menu.The weather is getting nicer, and we already have a variety of outdoor events planned. I want to make the most of the benefits of the central city park, which is part of our hotel, so you can expect fashion shows, presentations of luxury products, picnics, and sunset cocktails in Tašmajdan Park.

Our guests love to visit The Spa, which is unique precisely because of its intimacy and location, instantly transporting you to a serene mountain-sea environment in the heart of the city. Enriched with luxurious Omorovicza products, our unique wellness center puts us on the map when it comes to a good retreat in the city.

What’s the situation in the neighborhood, what are the novelties in neighboring Bulgaria and the capital Sofia?

Our product is entering the final phase of renovation and is rapidly heading towards the Accor group, so we have a nice job ahead of us adapting those standards to such a centrally positioned hotel with a tradition like Sofia Balkan Palace. I’m sure that the new look and brand will bring new strength, a fresh breeze to this market.

I would like to highlight the fact that our Maison Hotel Sofia is part of the Mgallery Collection, and for two years now, we have been making a difference, introducing innovations and all the beautiful practices of this feminine chain, which with its programs brings a nice new momentum to this part of the hotel offer.It sounds truly exciting, is that all the news, or do you have another hidden ace up your sleeve?

With great pleasure, I announce that we have renovated our largest hall, Ivo Andrić, so I know where the most weddings will take place this season, as our magnificent hall with original Murano glass, a new carpet, and the possibility of a wedding ceremony on the terrace overlooking the Church of St. Mark, truly adds an extra charm to this significant occasion. Earlier this year, we had a visit from a couple who got married with us exactly 44 years ago. The spark in their eyes and the pride we felt as one of the rare products in our region that can be grateful for such a tradition is something that cannot be described in words.I invite you to visit one of our hotels this spring and summer, and I am sure you will find an offer that will satisfy your most refined senses and your most demanding desires and expectations.
