Opened last year in the heart of Vilnius Old Town in the former mansion owned by the family bearing its name, Hotel PACAI provides an accommodation experience like no other. The hotel, which is also sponsoring this year’s CONVENE Education Programme, is featured on Surface Magazine’s list of Best Designed Hotels of 2018, which includes 14 other eye-catching properties from around the world. In its introduction to the list, the magazine asserts, “From the revitalization of historic structures to the arrival of fresh ideas to familiar places, this year’s crop of newcomers stand out for their ingenuity.”
The PACAI description goes on to read, “In Vilnius’ historic Old Town, architect Saulius Mikštas has breathed new life into a 17th-century Baroque mansion. The restoration of the existing structure is complemented by the preservation of original frescoes and textured walls in the 104 rooms by interior designers Indre Barsauskaite and Greta Valikone, who layered in contemporary furnishings for a balanced mix of old and new. The same can be said for the restaurant, which updates traditional Baltic recipes with super-seasonal ingredients and creative presentations.”
