We find out why the marina town of Luštica Bay promises to offer a next level Montenegrin experience.
Montenegro might be small, but its riches are great: year-round sunshine, a vivacious history, vibrant culture, and unspoilt scenery from mountainous inlands to a diverse coastline. Luštica Bay is an ideal location to discover all the country has to offer, and a little something new too.
Despite being within easy reach of three major airports and the UNESCO world heritage Bay of Kotor, this new residential marina town feels worlds away. Bordered by verdant rolling hills and beside crystal-clear Adriatic waters, it’s located along the vivid beauty of the Luštica peninsula where it’s carving out an exceptional way of life. A life that combines the gentle traditions of Montenegrin coastal living with preeminent contemporary facilities and a sustainable future. Fine-dining, superb shopping, world-class golfing and yachting and five-star service all converge to create the ultimate riviera experience for guests and residents alike.
The marina town offers over 2,000 waterfront residences, seven hotels, two marinas and a Gary Player-designed golf course. Luštica Bay’s Marina Village echoes the small hamlets that dot the Montenegrin coastline. Its promenade brings authentic Montenegro to Luštica Bay, with restaurants serving seasonal, local dishes and shops that combine world-renowned brands with local designs and one-of-a-kind treasures.
In July 2018, its first hotel, The Chedi Luštica Bay, opened its doors. Set on the waterfront of the Marina Village, here you will you find the unique combination of The Chedi’s discreet luxury and service alongside Montenegro’s natural warmth and authenticity. It embraces the Montenegrin saying: Samo Polako – slow down and live in the here and now.
Last year also saw the beginning of construction of the town’s second neighbourhood and what will become its new cosmopolitan town centre: Centrale. Strategically located at the entrance to the site and at the junction of all its major roads, Centrale will act as the natural heart of Luštica and as an important connector to nearby towns. Its first phase will be finished by autumn this year, with full completion by 2028. Closely linked with the rest of Luštica Bay, the new neighbourhood will become part of Luštica life. A warm, community-focused town with something for everyone; somewhere not to pass the time, but to live every moment the Montenegrin way.
