Nestled on the South side of the Adriatic sea, Montenegro is truly a hidden gem. Many of us don’t even know where it is but as someone who is from Balkan originally, visiting Montenegro felt like being back home and I really needed to write this post and show you guys this hidden beauty.
My recent trip to Montenegro ended up being one of my favourite press trips ever and I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity to go. I took hundreds of photos so I think I will have to split this into 2 posts. Montenegro is truly nature’s gift packed with clear waters, stunning mountains views and beautiful beaches. There is something to do for any travel lover especially if you are into nature. I myself appreciate a good hike every now and then, however, beach walks, pool days and nice restaurants are my favourite things. Either way, you will be spoilt for choice. The rich history and turbulent past only add to Montenegro’s beauty and its really a place to add to your travel list and further explore this summer. I’m already planning my next trip.
Where to Stay
We stayed at Regent Porto Montenegro which was absolutely stunning and in a perfect location. The Regent is a five-star luxury hotel positioned right on the Port of Montenegro. The service makes the Regent a very good choice to base your stay here but also aside from the service, Regent had the most beautiful rooms overlooking the port and the sea.
My room had a large bed and an access to the terrace overlooking the port and docked boats. The bathroom had a big bathtub and a shower and I couldn’t help myself but make a big bath using sea salt provided by the Regent. Despite my room being so beautiful, I didn’t have much time to spend here as we were out most of the time exploring Montenegro. I did, however, love waking up every morning taking in the most beautiful view of the sea and breathing in the fresh air.
There are 2 massive pools available for Regents guest that if you feel like having a chilled day, you won’t find a better place to do it.
What to Do
Each morning we would start with a very yummy breakfast of truffled scrambled eggs and a french press which was a great way to set yourself up for a full day of activities. I loved exploring Porto Montenegro and having long walks around it. There are so many beautiful high-end fashion stores, bars and restaurant that spending a day here is truly stunning. Blue skies and endless ocean provide this the most dreamy location for a day out and leisurely stroll down the marina.
I don’t know about you but these kinds of afternoon make me daydream a lot and I love when a place gives me that opportunity.
To continue your day of chill, I recommend walking further five minutes towards the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club for a few hours by one of the biggest pools I have ever seen. The Yacht Club provides the prettiest setting to enjoy a cocktail or two. I opted for a drink served in the cutest coconut shell for obvious reasons. If you fancy some food you can order some at their bar.
Other really amazing places to have food in Porto Montenegro are restaurant One located on the marine and Regents restaurant Murano that serves the most delicious fish and seafood caught the same day at the Boka Bay. We also enjoyed a dessert at the Gourmet corner which is a great place to grab a coffee and a have a cheeky break with a slice of cake or my favourite pistachio ice cream.
I hope you like my photos. I will upload another post with other activities that I did including wine tasting at Savina Wineyard, guided tour of Kotor and a visit to Our Lady of the Rocks.
