Belgrade has always been a place where worlds collide. Located at the convergence of the Sava and Danube Rivers, it’s where East meets West and ancient history joins the contemporary age.
The new St. Regis Belgrade hotel celebrates the rich history and culture of Serbia’s famed ‘White City’ and will occupy the first nine floors of the 40-story Kula Belgrade, a signature tower within the Belgrade Waterfront development.
The entry hall’s grand stair, carefully curated artwork, embossed metal finishes and elegant furniture extend a warm welcome to guests and lead them into the hotel’s public areas. Two strong focal points—a grand fireplace and sculptural service counter—define the St. Regis Bar, a beloved signature of the brand. A handcrafted, bespoke textile art piece wraps the walls, telling the story of Belgrade’s rebirth in an abstract, modern style.
In guestrooms, HOK’s design references traditional weaving patterns of Serbian textiles and uses a refined, light palette for colors and materials. By channeling the spirit of legendary Serbian painter Milena Pavlović Barili, the Presidential Suite has art and furnishings that evoke an independent, sophisticated style.
In addition to 119 well-appointed guestrooms, the hotel includes restaurants, bars, a fitness center, a spa and meeting space. It’s expected to open in 2020.
