Regent Porto Montenegro fulfills the promise of a luxury seaside escape

Located to the east of Italy’s south east coast and bordering Serbia, Albania, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina is Montenegro. Known for its pristine interiors and dramatic mountainscapes, it’s also home to one of the world’s most idyllic nautical playgrounds, Boka Bay, which is a sunken canyon that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the largest natural harbour in the eastern Mediterranean. Nestled within Boka Bay is the Mediterranean’s leading luxury yacht homeport and marina village, Porto Montenegro. A premier marina destination with luxury waterfront residences and an international retail village, Porto Montenegro caters to the advanced needs of all yachts, their owners, guests and crew, with specific infrastructure for superyachts (yachts over 30m).

Born out of the vision of its chief investor, Canadian businessman Peter Munk, Porto Montenegro’s marina utilises the existing infrastructure of the former Yugoslav naval facility upon which it is built. It features 450 berths (850 berths planned in total), able to accommodate the largest superyachts in the world, alongside providing the highest level of service and amenities – including a nearby shipyard with dry-dock and repair facilities. In addition, the development has created a vibrant coastal community of waterfront residences, restaurants, shops, amenities and leisure facilities. The marina has been recognised for its efforts through the years, gaining Marina of distinction from 2015-2017, and becoming the only marina to be awarded Platinum by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) in 2017.

One of its biggest attractions is the Regent Porto Montenegro Hotel. The hotel lies along the palm tree lined shores of Boka Bay, set against a backdrop of striking mountains. Its location is at the heart of the best emerging cruising waters in the Mediterranean basin. Porto Montenegro itself has over one kilometer of west-facing waterfront. Regent Porto Montenegro is the only five-star international hotel in Boka Bay, with a central location amongst numerous listed World Heritage Sites. Many fine dining establishments and entertainment options are available within walking distance from the hotel.

This spectacular waterfront hotel comprises of 150 hotel rooms and residences. Facilities include a pool club, spa, library bar and restaurants, as well as an al fresco dining area in an Italian inspired garden. These contemporary chic apartments, each with a landscaped terrace, are inspired by the Italian Riviera and have unobscured sea and mountain views – tipped to be the best real estate in Montenegro.

The Aqua Wing’s one-to-three bedrooms, suites and penthouses are a symphony of elegance and repose. Earthy shades of beige, straw and grass contrast harmoniously with sumptuous furniture in rich dark tones to create a serene oasis, peppered with local influences. The hotel’s first floor function space includes the Ballroom “Teodo”, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Salon “Boka”, a foyer and the Regent Lounge.

The hotel is known for organising several tours of the area, such as the Beautiful Montenegro Tour which gives guests the opportunity to see the most attractive sites of Montenegro, both, Seaside and Mountains such as Lovćen. Guests can also take in the history and nature attractions while tasting a spirit of local living in the Old Royal Capital of Cetinje. Several activities are offered as part of the tours, including wakeboarding, waterskiing, hiking, kayaking, and many more.
