Porto Montenegro is the most vibrant marina-side shopping village in the Adriatic. Bringing together established international brands and local businesses, this dynamic mix of over 50 stores including fashion and accessories stores, bars and restaurants, a spa and hair salon, as well as yachting services and amenities, has year-round appeal. Restaurants offer everything from traditional local cuisine to Italian, Mediterranean and Asian whilst the fashion stores stock designer labels alongside a host of independent boutiques.
This spectacular waterfront property comprises a mix of hotel rooms and private residences all designed by Tino Zervudachi from Paris. The terracotta roofed building, inspired by the countless Italianate palazzi around the Boka Bay, is a tribute to the area’s 400 years under Venetian rule.
A central, double-height atrium with expansive views of the sea leads out onto a tranquil water garden while a ground-floor café, restaurant and library bar provide a range of dining and entertaining options.
Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, combined with a signature Regent Spa and fitness centre, also make this an ideal hideaway in the winter months.
The Boka Bay Main
Often referred to as the southernmost fjord in Europe, the Boka Bay is in fact a drowned river canyon. The high mountains that bend around the coastline protect the bay from the open sea and from the cold climate of the north in winter. This allows an abundance of Mediterranean vegetation to grow: agave, palm, mimosa, oleander, kiwi, pomegranate and medicinal herbs can all flourish in these temperatures.
The Bay is naturally divided into four smaller parts – Herceg Novi, Risan, Kotor and Tivat. Herceg Novi displays a fine combination of romantic, Byzantine and oriental architectural styles while Risan is known for the remnants of classical culture found there, dominated by the remains of a Roman patrician’s villa with beautiful mosaic floors. Kotor, a UNESCO protected walled city, is the old coastal and cultural centre which has withstood countless invasions over the centuries and now attracts a lively tourist crowd in summer for its splendid churches and squares.
Home to Porto Montenegro, Tivat is the heart of the coastline’s burgeoning tourism industry. Catering to its bustling nautical community with new restaurants, bars and cafés cropping up across town. Tivat also boasts numerous pretty nearby coves and the greatest number of sunny days of any town on the Bay.
Once the site of the Illyrian Queen Teuta’s summer residence, and later the seaside location of choice during Roman, Medieval and Venetian eras, Tivat’s deep-water harbour was transformed into an Austrian naval base at the end of the 19th century. While greatly expanded by Yugoslavia, elements of the original 1800s construction are still visible in the stonework along the waterfront today.
