Le Meridien HotelHotel/Sports/Resorts
project description Hotel resort & convention centre
location Vilnius, Lithuania
status Partially built
The Le Meridien Resort is located some 18 kilometres north-west of the Capital City of Vilnius and immediately to the east of the A2/E272 motorway which links Vilnius with Pamevezys and from there via the A10 motorway, to Riga in Latvia.The 142 hectares site contains two lakes, the Notiskis – having a surface area of some 12 hectares – and the Ezeraitis – having a surface area of some 6 hectares.The building complex comprising the existing hotel and convention centre is located adjacent to the A2/E272 motorway such that the greater area of the site was undeveloped.The project included proposals for both the extension and refurbishment of the existing hotel and convention centre and, a development master plan for a covered ’wet’ and ‘dry’ leisure centre adjacent to the hotel, a development of ‘eco-holiday bungalows’ around Ezeraitis lake and, an 18-hole golf course with new golf clubhouse adjacent to Notiskis lake.
