This May, luxury Adriatic marina Porto Montenegro will open Buddha-Bar Beach, a unique lifestyle and dining concept within the marina’s five-star yacht club – just in time for the upcoming summer season. Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro will combine the very best in hospitality, music, design, and entertainment featuring live music, creative cocktails and lively ambience.
The legendary Buddha-Bar restaurant group is known across the world for its Asian-inspired gastronomy, hospitality, wellness, music and mixology. Buddha-Bar Beach caters to a fun and festive summer crowd looking for a hedonic experience under the sun and by the water. Montenegro is now the latest home for this famous luxury beach/poolside concept, with other locations in Venice, Crete and Mykonos.
Through this endeavour, the world-renowned concept of Buddha-Bar Beach will become an integral part of Porto Montenegro, the number one luxury marina in the Adriatic and the country’s flagship lifestyle destination. Throughout the summer, the venue will host world famous musicians and will organize a packed social calendar of events for guests to enjoy. Visitors will experience the unique ‘Buddha-Bar Beach Spirit’ thanks to its eclectic DJ sets and exceptional atmosphere.
One of the most anticipated hotspots on the coast of Montenegro, guests of Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro can expect a refined experience set against the stunning background of the yacht club’s 64-metre pool infinity pool. The spectacular dining experience will be located within a brand new restaurant and feature a shisha-lounge with a panoramic view of the Bay of Kotor. A refreshing menu of mixed flavors and influences will be inspired by Montenegro’s traditional seafood cuisine and will focus on natural, organic ingredients and locally-sourced produce to support farmers within the community. Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro will employ more than 70 people from the region.
The unique Buddha-Bar restaurant concept was founded by Tarja and Raymond Visan in 1995, who dreamed of a place that creatively combines phenomenal music, superb Asian gastronomy, unique cocktails, a relaxing ambience and an extremely dedicated team of professionals. “We are incredibly excited to bring the Buddha-Bar Beach concept to Montenegro this summer”, says Tarja Visan. “We are certain that the location and international reputation of Porto Montenegro will become an important part of our portfolio and equally we are convinced that the Buddha-Bar Beach concept will bring significant value to this impressive destination.”
Porto Montenegro is the region’s most sophisticated waterfront address. A luxury destination that includes a world-class, full-service 456-berth marina, a five-star Regent Hotel and an award-winning yacht club, an international boarding school, industry-leading rental services and an idyllic selection of dining, shopping and social experiences.
In recent years, Porto Montenegro has transformed from a summer-time destination to a year-round business and entertainment hub, as many residents make it their permanent base. The arrival of international brands such as Buddha-Bar Beach adds an extra dimension to its appeal and the overall popularity of Montenegro as a thriving new hotspot for discerning international travellers.
