The Investment Corporation of Dubai Acquires Porto Montenegro and Regent Porto Montenegro Hotel & Residences
Regent Hotels & Resorts is excited to share the news that The Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD), the principal investment arm of the Government of Dubai, agreed to the purchase of Porto Montenegro Marina and Resort in May 2016. The transaction marks ICD’s first investment in Montenegro and the yacht marina sector, both of which are expected to experience strong growth in coming years.
Regent Porto Montenegro’s new ownership with ICD marks an exciting next chapter for Porto Montenegro, as the destination’s development accelerates, further positioning it as a luxury destination and the leading yachting community. “I was inspired by the vision of Porto Montenegro founders Mr Peter Monk, Jacob Rothschild and Bernard Arnault to recreate Monte Carlo in Montenegro. We very much look forward to working with ICD and the expert team in Porto Montenegro as ICD is the premier sovereign wealth fund with expertise in visionary destination developments,” says Steven Pan, Chairman of Regent Hotels & Resorts.
In Summer 2017 Regent Porto Montenegro will launch its Regent Pool Club Residences. The residential development, which is located directly adjacent to the existing hotel in the heart of Porto Montenegro, represents 62 units of luxury hotel residences for sale.
Steven Pan continues, “Regent introduced the mixed use hotel residential concept to Europe and Regent Porto Montenegro was the first hotel built and opened after the financial crisis. Its success has led to the development of phase II Regent Pool Club Residences.”
Regent Pool Club Residences will offer some of the most prestigious waterfront addresses on the Adriatic, with one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury hotel residences with unobstructed sea and mountain views. The hotel residences will be designed by the award winning WATG architects of London and MHZ interiors of Paris following their success at the hotel.
An extensive private pool and garden area includes a 38m infinity-edge pool, a 26m lap pool and a dedicated children’s pool. An international restaurant will also provide full pool side and dining services. Based on the ‘hotel condominium’ model, the for-sale hotel residences have full and direct access to the extensive services and amenities of the five-star Regent Hotel including concierge, spa & fitness, room and dining services and an onsite management team that can take care of all maintenance and rental administration at the owners’ request.
Designed to be the most luxuriously appointed seaside residences on the Adriatic, Regent Pool Club Residences range in price from €409,000 to €3,719,000.
