A new coastal community on the rise
A burgeoning new Montenegrin town is offering peaceful luxury, healthy living and a rich sense of culture among a diverse community
This summer, Luštica Bay will not only organize a brimming calendar of activities and events, but will be continuing with construction and moving ahead with its unique vision for the town. With the Lavanda apartments completed and the Ruzmarin apartments undergoing finishing touches, new homeowners will be settled into their state-of-the-art coastal homes. They will be able to enjoy the warm summer evenings with a host of sunset events from barbecues to movie nights and art exhibitions. The concept for new town centre – Centrale was introduced in April. Set to become an extraordinary years-round home for its residents, Centrale will become the beating heart of the development, offering the community a central hub for all their needs.
While residents enjoy life as it should be, the superstructure of the marina in Luštica Bay is completed and this year the installation of infrastructure equipment, pontoons, and landscaping as well as the contact zone will be well under way. The new marina will bring further growth in the nautical tourism in Montenegro: with 176 berths for boats from six to 35 meters length overall, designed in the style of traditional Montenegrin villages along the coast. Luštica Bay marina will offer short-term and long-term lease of berths, and there will be a sports club, 24-hour support of a multilingual team, repair and maintenance services, yacht club and crew facilities, 24-hour security and video surveillance, Wi-Fi Internet access and infrastructure for electricity supply. Also the secondary marina is planned in the complex that will offer berths for another 56 boats. Work in the village includes the construction of the first of seven planned hotels, The Chedi Luštica Bay, anticipated to open mid-2018. Located along the Marina Village promenade, The Chedi Luštica Bay will sit among lush vegetation, overlooking the cerulean waters of the ocean beyond. Set to be the largest 5-star hotel in Boka Bay, it will offer 110 rooms – 50 within the hotel and 60 within private condominiums.
There will be an international restaurant, an all day dining restaurant, a bar, conference and business centre, plus an outdoor pool and spa and fitness centre, featuring an indoor heated pool and gym. The architect behind the hotel, Aaron Gentry of the award-winning TVSDesign Atlanta, has created a concept that draws on the traditional ambience of Montenegrin coastal villages while delivering on the modern luxury of a typical The Chedi hotel. Using local, natural materials and old-world construction techniques, the buildings and their facades reflect Mediterranean tradition. Interiors fuse the rustic with the contemporary, creating spaces that are light, open and harmonious with the surrounding landscape and sea. The result is a hotel of understated refinement and a deep connection to the culture of the region.
