15th March 2016 - Next year will see the opening of Portonovi, an exclusive 60 acre premium resort set on the secluded shores of Montenegro’s picturesque Bay of Boka Kotorska where the mountains meet the sea.
This stunning new luxury destination will reinforce Montenegro’s growing position as the next holiday hotspot for the discerning traveller.
Portonovi will offer a selection of properties from luxurious, spacious town houses set in the heart of its Mediterranean-style village, to stylish villas in its landscaped gardens, to sleek penthouse apartments overlooking the marina.
The resort’s sophisticated properties will sit on the narrowest and most exclusive part of the pristine Boka Bay. This location is also the perfect place from which yachts can explore Montenegro’s stunning 300 kilometre coastline, as well offering the quickest access for yachts to the Adriatic.
Property owners at Portonovi have a choice of layout options and views all master planned by renowned creative architects, Harper Downie and complemented with an entirely bespoke approach to interior design from the highly reputed and exclusive, The Studio at Harrods.
Loved by Sophia Loren, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Montenegro is an undiscovered Adriatic beauty to rival the South of France. Like the Mediterranean resorts, residents and visitors to Portonovi will enjoy a wealth of upscale restaurants such as Tapasake and Loccatelli, bars and luxury boutiques.
For visitors, there’s a myriad of experiences to be savoured and plenty to see and do. Montenegro is a small mountainous state in the south-west Balkans. It’s a country with diverse geography from rugged mountains, medieval villages to a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline. The Bay of Kotor, resembling a fjord, is dotted with coastal churches and fortified towns such as Kotor and Herceg Novi. Durmitor National Park encompasses limestone peaks, glacial lakes, wildlife such as bears and wolves, as well as the 1,300m-deep Tara River Canyon.
Portnonovi will soon be home to Europe’s first One&Only Resort boasting approximately 120 luxurious guest rooms and villas, a health spa, dining and retail options. The luxurious Espace Chenot Health Wellness Spa will be a key feature of the Resort offering guests beauty and cosmetic treatments, a personalised detox and a range of beauty and regeneration treatments designed to restore optimum energy levels to body and mind.
Another key element of Portonovi will be a state-of-the-art, 220 berth superyacht marina offering excellent access to the Adriatic with the islands off the Dalmatian Coast just a day’s sail away.
The Portonovi Yacht Club will be created by Winch Design, the award winning British design studio with a respected name in the yachting industry.
Portonovi is less than an hour’s drive from both Dubrovnik (33km) and Tivat International Airport (18km). Both airports have services from destinations across Europe, along with facilities for private jets.
The first phase of Portonovi will open in 2017.
