REGENT to open luxury resort hotel at PORTO MONTENEGRO
Adriatic Marinas d.o.o and Regent Hotels & Resorts (owned by Taiwan based FIHC) announced the launch of the Regent Porto Montenegro, a bespoke luxury hotel and residential development located in the Adriatic’s premier superyacht marina.
Designed by Reardon Smith Architects, the future Regent Porto Montenegro, due May 2014, will comprise of 80 units of hotel guest rooms and residences. The hotel will play an integral role in Porto Montenegro – the historical Austro-Hungarian naval base in the UNESCO protected Bay of Kotor.
The terracotta roofed building, inspired by Venetian aesthetics and drawing on the countless Italianate palazzi around the Bay, attests to the prominent record of the area’s 400 years under Venetian rule. A central, double-height atrium with expansive views of the sea surrounded by towering mountains, leads out onto a tranquil water garden featuring a submergible stone catwalk connected to a ‘private island’for exclusive events and dining.
A ground-floor café, fine dining restaurant, cigar lounge and library bar will provide a range of dining and entertaining options, created by interior designers Pisano Atelier. Two hotel swimming pools are planned, one indoor and one outdoor on the rooftop, as well as a signature Regent Spa and fitness centre.
On the upper levels, 80 hotel rooms, suites as well as multiple room residences provide sophisticated, contemporary living spaces notable for their multifunctional design. Each of the luxurious residences and penthouse apartments, the latter with private plunge pools and rooftop terraces, benefit from the bespoke hotel services and can be included in the rental pool, either in their entirety or in parts, by closing off self-contained living areas within the unit, allowing for maximum flexibility.
Today, Porto Montenegro also announced the doubling of its berth capacity from 185 to 370 berths, as well as the re-development of a yacht repair and refit facility in cooperation with ASY Bijela in the Bay of Kotor. These partnerships with Regent Hotels & Resorts and ASY Bijela are key steps for Porto Montenegro in becoming the most comprehensive and luxurious homeport in the whole of the Mediterranean.
Regent Hotels & Resorts will inaugurate this year a luxurious resort in Bali, the Regent Resort Hotel Bali, while in 2013, it is scheduled to open a resort hotel in Abu Dhabi.
