We are proud to announce our role as marina consultant for the new, luxury destination, Portonovi, planned to open in 2016 in Montenegro. Azmont Investments d.o.o’s new development will include a 250 berth marina with berths up to 75m, a VIP yacht club and helipad, and dedicated pier for visiting superyachts and boutique cruise ships.
Designed to the highest of standards, Portonovi is set to be a world class marina and waterfront development. Located within the stunning Bay of Boka Kotorska with excellent access to the cruising grounds of the Adriatic and beyond, the marina will appeal as both a homeport and visitor destination.
Marina Projects’ Jeff Houlgrave commented, “We are delighted to be working as part of Portonovi’s international, multi-disciplinary team, led by architects Harper Downie. From our experience in the region and further afield we are able to bring a unique design perspective to Portonovi marina.”
Construction is due to begin at the end of November on the 60-acre project. The resort will feature high-end residences; One&Only Portonovi, an ultra-luxury resort offering approximately 120 guest rooms, suites and villas; a destination wellness spa; luxury beach club; Portonovi Arena and Conference Centre, and a tennis academy. In addition there will be waterfront shops, cafes and restaurants, botanical gardens with biodiversity and eco-park, plus a fish market and organic food market.
Portonovi marks Azmont’s vision to create a 21st Century Riviera for Montenegro. James Wilson from Azmont Investments comments; “Montenegro is a culturally rich destination that is catching the attention of a truly international audience. As part of our work we are looking to maintain and enhance the surrounding areas whilst at the same time delivering an unparalleled luxury mixed-use resort. We feel that Portonovi, as a location, reflects the balance between international luxury and local community that Azmont Investments is seeking to achieve.”
