Regent Montenegro Will Open August 1 With Decent Rates
It’s one of those places that’s been dubbed the hot new destination for a few years, yet still seems to keep reasonably under the radar, but things might all be about to change for Montenegro with the arrival of the Regent Porto Montenegro in Tivat, which has now confirmed an opening date of 1 August.
Actually, it probably won’t all change since the hotel will be tiny – just 35 rooms and 51 “residences” varying from one to three bedrooms. It’s more likely to be a change for Regent, who have never done “residences” before, only hotel rooms.
We’re not too keen on the building itself – a rather lumpy modern take on an Italianate palazzo – but the rooms look nicely fresh and modern (less staid than we might have thought) and the views over the marina and the Bay of Kotor are going to be dreamy. After all, when you’re inside, it doesn’t matter what it looks like on the outside, right?
The extras are pretty impressive: three restaurants (yes, that’s one to every 25 rooms or so), a spa, two interconnected pools (one inside, one infinity pool outside overlooking the marina) and a private beach that, wait for it, is accessible only by boat. Oh, and there’s a cigar lounge, that ultimate accessory for luxury hotels de nos jours.
Considering all this, rooms start from a pretty reasonable €250. Let’s hope they keep them that way.
