Set on Montenegro’s spectacular sun-drenched coastline, Luštica Bay is the country’s premier new seaside address. A cosmopolitan new town in the making, Luštica Bay is attracting attention – and visitors. Over 300 homeowners from 46 different nations have already moved in, making it a truly global community.

The five-star The Chedi Hotel attracts guests from around the world, as does the exclusive marina for yachts and sailboats. The high-calibre restaurants and boutiques along the marina’s promenade have garnered positive reviews and a loyal clientele of residents and locals from Kotor, Tivat, and beyond. Many of the restaurants and shops are owned by entrepreneurial residents, living their Mediterranean dream.

‘A place to belong’ is more than a slogan, it’s a mantra for this truly vibrant community. The Mediterranean lifestyle is perfectly in harmony with nature, from outdoor yoga and tennis to walks along the winding coast. The Luštica peninsula is a peaceful place of breath-taking natural beauty. This is the real Montenegro, where locals live in harmony with each season. Luštica Bay residents enjoy an extraordinary quality of life, from the stunning beaches and hillside pools to the simple pleasure of watching the sun set over the sea from your home’s private terrace. The lifestyle incorporates a healthy approach, a positive sense of wellbeing and mindful relaxation.

The inviting atmosphere brings neighbours together for food festivals and fashion runways, music concerts and art exhibitions, volleyball, bocce, and exciting sailing regattas.

This inviting neighbourhood enchants visitors with its lively Riviera ambience, tempting waterfront restaurants, beautiful beaches, and spectacular hillside homes. Poised at the water’s edge, the Marina Village embraces the Mediterranean lifestyle. This highly desirable neighbourhood is almost complete, and the much-anticipated final addition features handsome apartments, townhouses and villas tucked into the secluded hills. This is exclusive seaside living, with spectacular terraces and panoramic views of the sea and marina. It’s the best of both worlds – a peaceful haven that’s still just a stone’s throw from the bustling waterfront promenade and beaches.

The marina’s promenade is fringed with seductive restaurants, all with tempting menus and breath-taking views of the distinctive lighthouse and the sparkling sea beyond. The glamorous terraces are ideal for alfresco brunches, dinner, or cocktails. Inspired by Montenegro’s striking landscapes and the nostalgic charm of a traditional fishing village, the Marina Village and its homes are designed to evoke a strong connection with nature and history.

The elegant buildings offer the best of contemporary luxury, with echoes of authentic Montenegro, thanks to indigenous Luštica stone façades in earthy hues. The natural textures and colours add a rich sense of place, infused with history and heritage. The native greenery and lush landscaping around the large community pools add to the Mediterranean ambience.

Open-plan living chimes beautifully with the indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The stylish home interiors feature beautiful kitchens and living spaces that open onto sea-facing balconies and spacious terraces. The ambience is relaxed and utterly comfortable, with a focus on the sea views and a calm and connected pace of life.
