Many local and foreign visitors and high occupancy rates confirm that Boka Bay needed a luxury settlement that offers the highest quality real estate and an authentic Mediterranean atmosphere.

Located on more than 26 acres along the Adriatic shoreline in picturesque Boka Bay, Portonovi became a new paradigm of mindful living for those pursuing the best. While respecting the long-lived legacy of the location, the project team understood that the future legacy must be focused on offering a thoroughly engaging experience with something for every generation of guests and visitors. Travelers from all around the globe can enjoy this remarkable place for a relaxing getaway on the Adriatic Coast, set between the sea and beautifully manicured gardens 365 days a year. Renowned for its history, culture, and rugged natural beauty, the surrounding area also has a lot to offer, including visiting the medieval town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, adventure in Lovćen National Park, and sailing around the beautiful Riviera coast, as well as a tour of the quaint Perast, the Venice of the Adriatic.
