The forces of nature have created spectacular and wild beauty with stunning stone mountain ranges with idyllic towns and villages at the foot of the mountains, many of which lie on the waters edge of the Adriatic Sea. It is just so different yet familiar, it may be a small country, but it is also a hidden gem in the Balkans with rugged mountains, medieval villages and a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline. The Chedi Luštica Bay in Montenegro is the newest real find. mylifestylenews writes.
After a 2 hours ride on the road, on arrival at the resort entrance at the top of the hill, the resort unfolded below us and we were eager to start sampling everything The Chedi Luštica Bay had to offer. We bid farewell to our limousine driver who was so hospitable, talkative and knowledgeable, that we were already immersed in all things Montenegrin.
The resort architecture draws inspiration from indigenous architecture and local heritage, while fusing the natural with refined luxury and exceptional comfort. Its distinctive style translates beautifully, creating a unique retreat to visit time and time again and designed for modern travelers providing five-star amenities and multi-use spaces for work and leisure in a relaxed ambience.
The stylish corner of the Lobby Bar
Built from local materials of stone, clay tile and natural wood, the properties seem to grow out of the very land itself. An integrated network of walls, courtyards, patios, terraces, gardens and walkways, they step organically down the hillside, maintaining existing views, drainage patterns and vegetation.
Their positioning means almost every property benefits from the site’s incredible panoramic sea views. Interior spaces are harmoniously united with outdoor areas for year-long indoor/outdoor living that takes full advantage of Montenegro’s sunny climes.

The check-in was seamless and quick and in moments we were on the balcony of our hotel room staring out at the inviting Adriatic Sea. Our semi sea facing light-filled Deluxe Room encompassed all that we had come to expect from The Chedi brand, with a fusion of contemporary coastal ambience, natural accents of marble, glass, timber and ceramic, in a neutral colour palate and an open plan design echoing the movement of the Adriatic Sea and the colours of the Mediterranean beyond.
The whole point of choosing to stay at The Chedi, Lustica Bay is to completely relax and chill out, which is not difficult to do. The outdoor swimming pool and terrace has an elevated position overlooking the marina and Adriatic coastline beyond.
There is also a smaller indoor pool to enjoy in The Spa environs, along with sauna and steam rooms and an experience shower to boot. This will also give you more options in the cooler months, but no need in the summer, as you will always want to be outside.
This is luxury to be explored in the latest addition to The Chedi hotels and resorts globally and very welcome it is. All in all, an unforgettable experience for absolutely all the right reasons: location, Chedi hospitality, sea views, local food and culture and lastly The Chedi team, who always go out of their way to engage with their guests and ensure that one has had an opportunity to sample all that is on offer in the resort and in Montenegro.
Embodying this definition, the tranquil environments and surroundings encourage you to rediscover the joys of stillness and be soothed by the calmness in a backdrop of beauty and comfort to connect the special relationship between the landscaping and local culture amongst which each resides with genuine, intimate experience of the destination. The Chedi Luštica Bay is no exception, opening doors to the best of Montenegro’s extraordinary culture and a Riviera lifestyle. As the saying goes, life as it should be.
