Luxury Art Nouveau Hotel Villa Ammende

Located in beautiful Pärnu, Estonia, Luxury Art Nouveau Hotel Villa Ammende offers a unique glimpse into the country’s past with its stunning Art Nouveau décor

The outcome of business negotiations can be affected by a variety of factors. In particular, those within the meetings industry have noticed over the years that the presence of romanticism, a relaxing environment or an unusual meeting place can, as a rule, bring great results.

As journeys into the past go, this exploration of a noble epoch is particularly special. Full of intricate, traditional detailing and complemented by one of the highest-rated restaurants in Estonia, Luxury Art Nouveau Hotel Villa Ammende manages to vividly recreate the atmosphere of a wealthy merchant’s home at the turn of the 20th century.

The hotel’s guestrooms, lounges and halls are all furnished with carefully renovated original Art Nouveau furniture and decorative items, including authentic paintings, woodcarvings, candelabras, antiques and hunting trophies. The property itself deftly combines the feel of a luxurious modern guesthouse with traditional, old-fashioned elegance.

Blast from the past
Ideal for business meetings, romantic weekends and relaxing holidays, Villa Ammende is a step back in time to a bourgeois era when material wealth matched manners, quality and refinement. This unique era in Estonia’s history, in addition to reflecting the country’s colourful past, has also enabled the historic hotel to occupy a distinctive place in this remarkable country’s present.

Widely considered to be the best-restored Art Nouveau hotel in Europe, as well as a valuable architectural landmark in Estonia, this historical grand mansion offers old-school hospitality supported by sophisticated, modern amenities.
