The anticipated Regent Porto Montenegro Hotel and Residences represents a ground-breaking new addition to the region’s hospitality market.
Designed by ReardonSmith Architects (UK) and world-renowned interior designer Tino Zervudachi of Milinaric, Henry & Zervudachi (FR), the hotel unites traditional architecture and contemporary lines with soft colours, elegant stone and hardwoods.
Founded in 1964 by David Mlinaric, the firm now known as Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi (MHZ) has been leading the field of high-end interior design and decoration for decades. Today the firm is run by Tino Zervudachi and has offices in London, Paris and New York. Client commissions involve private residences, yachts and aircrafts as well as commercial projects and public spaces such as hotels, embassies, restaurants, flagship stores, museums and even an opera house. Recently, the Aurelio Hotel in Lech, Austria, designed by MHZ won the ‘Best Bedrooms and Bathrooms’ category at the 2009 European Hotel Design Awards.
Tino Zervudachi has personally overseen the rejuvenation of important historic houses and decorated a range of magnificent residences and yachts. Bespoke rooms for Mick Jagger, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, and other elite clients have no set or defining style but instead share subtle links, namely sophisticated and refined details.
Since 2006, MHZ has been involved with Porto Montenegro marina on multiple levels of design and aesthetic direction. Initially appointed as the artistic and visual director on the project in 2006, Tino Zervudachi has since worked closely with the developer, Adriatic Marinas d.o.o, and project architects, ReardonSmith, on the detailed design of the interiors for all the buildings as well as providing visual guidance for the general site.
ReardonSmith Architects meanwhile, are an award–winning global leader in hotel and resort design. The practice has an unrivalled track record in the restoration and rebuilding of luxury hotels in London, an enviable reputation for the design of new destinations in Europe and Africa, and a wide range of experience of hotel architecture across the entire sector. The company's achievements stem from its profound understanding of hotels – as an asset, an operation and as a guest experience. For over 20 years, ReardonSmith has specialized exclusively in the architecture of hotels and resorts. Today, the practice has a portfolio of work that encompasses prestigious projects, visionary schemes, glamorous destinations and, as always, well-functioning and extremely comfortable hotels. ReardonSmith were responsible for the original masterplan for Porto Montenegro and have designed each of the five residential buildings within the village so far, totaling around 130 luxury residential units.
Their terracotta-roofed Regent Porto Montenegro was inspired by the Italianate palazzi scattered around the Boka Bay, tribute to the area’s 400 years under Venetian rule. A central, double-height atrium with expansive views of the sea leads out onto a tranquil water garden featuring a submergible stone catwalk connected to a private island for exclusive events and dining. A groundfloor café, fine dining restaurant, cigar lounge and library bar will provide a range of dining and entertaining options. Two hotel swimming pools are planned, one indoor and one rooftop outdoor, as well as a signature Regent Spa and fitness center.
On the upper levels, the rooms and residences provide sophisticated, contemporary living spaces notable for their multifunctional design. Each benefit from the hotel's five-star services can if the owner wishes, be included in the rental pool, either in their entirety or in parts by closing off selfcontained living areas within the unit, allowing for maximum flexibility and control.
Located on the 5th floor of the Regent Hotel and Residences, these west facing penthouse apartments overlook the marina and out to the Boka Bay. Currently on sale as two individual units, however on request can be combined to create two 3-4 bedroom apartments.
