Porto Montenegro, the Adriatic’s leading superyacht marina, makes way for an infusion of culture this summer with a diverse series of exclusive events to entertain residents and visitors alike. With concerts and art exhibitions, a new nightclub, foodie fairs and wine exhibitions, it’s guaranteed that there is something for everyone. Not to mention two world-class Superyacht events: The SuperYacht Rendezvous Montenegro and MYBA Pop-up SuperYacht Show.
FOR THE PLACE TO BE SEEN
With an impressive overwater infinity pool, Porto Montenegro's new members-only Yacht pool club with the infinity pool Lido Mar, caters exclusively to Porto Montenegro homeowners, visiting VIPs, marina guests and hotel residents. Newly redesigned by Tino Zervudachi of MHZ in Paris, the Yacht club now features classic poolside dining alongside a menu of cocktails and a selection of 30 wines while Lido Pranzo, an informal daytime restaurant, is located at the foot of the Lido Mar pool. De Gustibus is a dining option open every evening that offers sunset views over the pool, and an exclusive Platinum club provides an intimate, luxurious nightclub experience, all within the same building.
This year Porto Montenegro’s village features boutique environments carrying Ready to Wear, Resort and Accessories collections from Dolce and Gabbana, Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Fendi, Balenciaga, Moncler, Philip Plein, Misahara, Genny, Heidi Klein, Celine, Givenchy, Chloe, Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent, Emilio Pucci, Lanvin, Thom Browne, Valentino, Dita, Shourouk, Cutler&Gross and Victoria Beckham including exquisite lingerie by La Perla.
FOR THE WINE CONNOISSEUR
Bringing together exhibitors from some of the finest wineries in Europe, the SuperWine 3.0 Festival promises to introduce more than 20 celebrated wines from around the world to Montenegro’s oenophile community. This event will take place on the 10th & 11th of July within the PM Yacht club.
FOR THE ART ADMIRER
Leading contemporary art gallery Mead Carney of Dover Street in Mayfair, London, is popping up in Porto Montenegro’s village once more this summer with their signature blend of conversation-starter artworks. Open from late June until mid-September the show brings together two of the gallery’s most recent exhibitions. ‘Wonderland’ is a project created over the course of five years by award winning fine art photographer Kirsty Mitchell as an homage to her late mother. Having previously worked in fashion for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Kirsty understood the constructed and filmic nature of photography so she set about re-creating her favourite scenes from the fairy tales her mother used to read to her as a child. Agua Nacida, ‘Water Born’ in Spanish, presents a truly unique collection of hauntingly beautiful large-scale nudes, shot underwater in Fiji and Gozo by the internationally acclaimed photographer Hugh Arnold.
‘Magnificent Nature’ is a collection of paintings and sculptures created by the artist Milena ZeVu, which will be exhibited in the Naval Heritage Museum in Porto Montenegro from July 9th. The collection contains works that are created in a special technique - an acrylic or cement base with thousands of manually inserted Swarovski Crystals, which Milena has been developing for years. The theme of the collection is Nature and Sea World, especially tropical fish which are unique, colourful and portrayed in a 3D manner as a combination of sculpture and painting. Two works from this collection were exhibited and auctioned in Monte Carlo at an event organized by the Foundation of Princess Stephanie of Monaco.
Furthermore, from 1st to 18th of August, Cattaro Home Gallery will present the Art of David Hamilton, a photographer and part-time film director who has published numerous photographic books, created five feature films and been the focus of countless museum and gallery exhibitions during a successful career spanning several decades. The theme of his summer exhibition will be ‘Venice’ and he will be showing some of his finest landscapes and portraits.
FOR YACHTING ENTHUSIAST
The SuperYacht Rendezvous will be making its debut in Montenegro this year from 2nd to 5th of July. This event welcomes both sailing and motor-powered superyachts from 30m upwards. Building on the past successes of the Monaco Rendezvous, in 2015 superyacht owners will enjoy a spectacular social programme in and around the Bay of Kotor.
MYBA Pop-up SuperYacht Show Porto Montenegro will be hosted in collaboration with MYBA, the Worldwide Yachting Association this September. This short ‘pop-up’ event is aimed at the world’s leading professional charter brokers looking to appraise the yachts on display and network with captains and crew in readiness for the forthcoming season.
FOR THE PLACE TO STAY
A spectacular waterfront property comprising 35 hotel rooms and 51 residences, Porto Montenegro has welcomed the much-anticipated Regent Porto Montenegro Hotel & Residences to its ever-evolving marina community. Celebrating a very successful first year, the hotel has set new standards for luxury hotel design in the Adriatic, representing a ground-breaking new addition to the region’s hospitality market.
