10 Aug Destination Alert: Tivat – Porto Montenegro
Born out of the vision of its chief investor, Canadian businessman Peter Munk, Porto Montenegro‟s state-of-the-art marina utilises the existing infrastructure of the former Yugoslav naval facility upon which it is built. It features 630 berths for yachts, including the largest superyachts, and will provide the highest level of service and amenities for vessels of all sizes – including nearby dry-dock and repair facilities. This development has created a vibrant coastal community of waterfront residences, hotels and restaurants, shopping, water sports and leisure facilities. One to maybe rival Monaco?
Now the technical stuff is out the way imagine… You’re on your own balcony at the shiny new Regent Porto Montenegro which doubles up as a ringside seat to the shiny new Porto Montenegro – you could just about reach out and tickle/punch those superyacht owners. The view is all yachts, the sparkly Adriatic and more yachts, and that nautical theme continues inside, with teak panelling and ropes slung around mirrors. Downstairs is boaty too: the bar has a gentleman’s club vibe, and the terrace is the place to spend the day watching and scoffing. Breakfast includes the best scrambled eggs known to man (with truffle and parmesan). You might as well stay put for lunch, for lobster and zucchini millefeuille with feta and preserved lemon. And tea: out-of-this-world pastries. Then waddle to the spa or the infinity pool – or let the concierge summon a speedboat to whisk you to a private beach.
That is the summer dream right?
