Resort Review: Regent Porto Montenegro
I checked in to the Regent Porto Montenegro almost by accident. I was invited to speak at the Spark.Me media conference and upon scrolling through photos of the event, hotel and destination (Porto Montenegro), I jumped at the opportunity to travel half way across the world.
Instead of staying for just two days, I booked two weeks in Montenegro and arrived with no plans, no clue of what I would do to fill my days and an open mind to exploring Montenegro. I ended up staying at the Regent Porto Montenegro for a glorious seven nights and making this hotel my home for the week.
The Regent is a great place to base yourself and explore the surrounding towns as there is so much to see and do in the South of Montenegro that you really need a week to see it all.
The hotel is new and it shows. It was opened in 2014 and no expense was spared in creating a luxurious hotel on the southwest coast of Montenegro. But aside from the obvious luxuries, it was the staff who really made my stay so memorable. There were always smiling faces at every turn who mostly all knew me by name, constantly asking how me adventures were as I returned each afternoon or evening.
The rooms at Porto Montenegro are huge and there’s nothing you will need to bring yourself. All the amenities are thought of including even a lofa to scrub your body clean, bath salts and a very warm welcome to my life on the road; a nespresso machine.
Dining at the Regent
Breakfast is included in your room rate and it is an event you don’t want to miss. A good buffet breakfast is the guarantee we all need to a good day and I couldn’t get enough of the breakfast at the Regent. There’s a buffet full of hot and cold options (croissants, granola, breakfast tarts and more) but it is the a la carte menu items that will really impress. Truffle scrambled eggs? Yes please.
I went back to Murano Restaurant for both lunch and dinner throughout my stay. The menu is well priced for the level of service and food, so even if you aren’t staying at the hotel I’d recommend dropping by for an evening meal.
The Gourmet Corner Bakery attached to the side of the hotel is where I spent most of my days on my laptop. Make sure you order the carrot cake and thank me later (it is so good I will probably be dreaming about it even next month).
Throughout my week long stay (perhaps the longest I’ve stayed in one place let alone the same hotel) I made use of all the facilities – a 24 hour gym, nail salon, spa, two swimming pools and my beloved room service. There’s nothing better than ordering a carb-heavy pasta dish at 11:00pm because you can.

WOW recommends the Venezia Wing of the hotel for the iconic Regent experience. Room 411 will give you a great view of the shops and marina below, while room 415A is a front facing view toward the entire marina and is perfect for the best sunsets.
