In the middle of one of the most picturesque Adriatic bays a prestigious marina has grown, which is also where the new Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro is set. The luxurious hotel offers an unforgettable experience in the middle of a marina with 400 berths for mega-yachts. Mega-yachts of more than 50 meters in length are common and the development of a formerly neglected area has completely transformed the image of Tivat and turned it into a luxury Adriatic tourist destination. The Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro is the second hotel in Europe and seventh in the world of a Taiwanese luxury hotel chain.
The hotel is relatively accessible via three airports with scheduled and charter flights. The nearby Tivat airport is just 4.6 km away, Dubrovnik airport 47 km distant and Podgorica Airport 90 km away. Access is, of course, also possible via the Adriatic, with the Bay of Kotor the largest bay of the Adriatic Sea and arrival by the sea is truly a special experience.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The designers of the complex have placed their bets on sustainability and pleasure and have designed a more modern and functional hotel in the style of the Venetian palaces, which bends to traditional Montenegrin hotel clichés. The architecture is the work of Reardon Smith Architects, but Tino Zervudachi, primarily known as a decorator of luxury yachts, has designed the interior. The result is an incredible level of detail that impresses with its elegance. During a visit, it was possible to envisage a series of ideas of how an event could be organised: superb landscaped terraces and romantic paradise-like gardens are all in place, and everywhere picturesque views of the marina and the Bay of Kotor frame the view.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
The hotel has in a short time become a gourmet centre of the region and Chef Jusman So leads three restaurants – the Dining room, Gourmet corner and Library bar – where he innovatively combines Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. We were impressed with the pastry shop, which is a real gourmet’s paradise and where you can buy typical local produce and what is probably one of the best hotel breakfasts in the region is beyond the competition. The Library bar is reminiscent of a classic English club, which offers an extensive wine list in a traditional atmosphere. Together with the impeccable service, Regent Montenegro represents the best of sophistication and luxury in the region.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The hotel rooms resemble the much larger and more beautiful of the ship’s cabins and the rooms deserve an excellent grade – this hotel really gets under your skin! Lifestyle events, sumptuous weddings, and memorable outdoor incentives are the main events in the hotel. The global jet-set elite has quickly discovered the charms of the Montenegrin coast and the hotel also offers a series of events under their own production. The biggest congress hall, Teodo, accommodates up to 200 guests. Next to this are the salon Boka, 2 Foayer and the Regent Lounge. There is also an impressive Regent Spa.
DESSERT – The extras
The Navy Museum with its newly renovated submarines and a collection of objects from the rich nautical history of the Montenegrin Littoral.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Prices can be quite high for ordinary congress guests, but the hotel will repay you with really top-notch service.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
You will be surrounded not only by magnificent nature and hi-tech but also with great employees who have mastered the concept of luxury catering to perfection, where guests can enjoy full privacy.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
The hotel sets new regional hoteliers’ standards and sets Montenegro among the most luxurious tourist destinations. It is not surprising that it was nominated for World Luxury Awards for 2015. Ratings of its individual criteria speak for themselves; the hotel offers comfort, a range of top quality materials, luxurious elegance and a high-quality offer of its spa centre for which a visit is a special experience and why many famous and rich people have already visited Regent Porto Montenegro. You too can book your corner among the VIPs in one of its 51 rooms.
