Hotel Avala in Budva

Hotel Avala in Budva was once built in best position on the Budva bay with a stunning pool directly over the sea, but after the wars and before Budva became a hype place, it was open though but there was no money and no valuable concept (and no tourists) on what to do with this big but outdated house!

The location was good even if it can gets loud at night, since it’s next to the most two polpular beaches of Budva: Mogren I and Mogren II and to some nightclubs in the old city.
A good idea was to seek for the wealthy in Serbia and Russia and to attract some celebrities with a clean modern architecture.
So people like Severina (Croatian starlet) and Jelena Jankovic (tennis player) spent some days there and did good job to promote the hotel.

Just back in 2005 it was a scary spooky place that had seen better times.

Now what a difference, it looks trendy and groomed and adds attractiveness to Budva’s landscape.

The Belgrade based architects of sinestezia are about to renovate the pavillons (row houses) behind the hotel complex.

    Total mistake! Before reconstruction, it looked very nice, from outside! It had to be repared, but not to be turned into ugly stereotipe black building like some bank in New Belgrade... When I was child in 1987, it was new and beautiful.
