Set on the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Bay of Kotor, Luštica Bay continues to change its outline day by day, offering a snapshot of traditional Montenegro, as well as contemporary coastal living at its best.
While many people are looking to escape the city and buy or rent abroad, the resort’s apartments and townhouses, designed in traditional Montenegrin style, provide the perfect location for home working and exploring this staggeringly beautiful country.
Due to Montenegro’s unique combination of snow-capped mountains, 240 days of sunshine a year, crystal clear lakes and the most richly diverse eco-systems in Europe, people choosing to work from home abroad for the remainder of the pandemic have been able to enjoy the best of both worlds without crossing any borders to enjoy skiing and sailing.
Beyond the bay, overlooking the town, are the snowy capped Dinaric Alps, just a two- and half-hour drive away. Here the winter resorts of Kosalin and Zabljak are already open and the ski season is underway – providing an opportunity for some much-needed adventure and exhilaration after months of lockdowns.
While the UK maintains its ‘Green List’ status on Montenegro’s travel corridors, there is no need to self-isolate, quarantine or take PCR tests to enter the country. It’s, therefore, no surprise that Luštica Bay – which marks the first and the major greenfield investment in Montenegro worth 1.1 billion EUR – continues to be a popular choice for long-term rentals and property investment, with properties starting from as little as 120,000 EUR for a studio in Centrale – the new town centre of Luštica Bay.
There is much to discover within the town, from The Chedi Hotel – winner of the 2020 World Restaurant Awards and The World Luxury Spa Awards – through to 21 Beach club and boutiques and restaurants such as The Lighthouse, home to a family-run restaurant, serving traditional Montenegrin cuisine.
Upon completion, the town will feature over 1,000 spacious apartments and more than 500 stunning villas and townhouses, hosting a few thousand residents. It will also offer a Gary Player signature 18-hole golf course, top wellness and spa facilities, and all the amenities needed for a thriving town. Seven world-class hotels, two marinas with mooring and docking and a 4.9 km-long boardwalk along the waterfront are still to come, making Luštica Bay the rising star of the Balkans.
