Setting

Bay watch

The Chedi Lustica Bay instantly wows with its glass-walled contemporary good looks and swish marina setting. Yes, a bar built into the cliffs and several sceney restaurants are sure to impress, along with a photoshoot-worthy spa and the hotel’s idyllic strip of beach. But there’s considerable sustainability to its raft of luxe frills, too, with an Earth-kind set-up and community ties that look to protect the pristine beauty of its magical Montenegran locale.

Free WiFi throughout, private beach, indoor and outdoor pools, gym with personal trainers, indoor playroom and outdoor playground, free parking. In rooms: free bottled water, Lavazza coffee machine, minibar, wine selection, air-conditioning, flatscreen TV and Acqua di Parma bath products.

Our favourite rooms

Floor-to-ceiling windows show off the sea to varying degrees in most rooms, though some get a foresty-mountain backdrop instead: pick one with a bay view and watch the ships come in. Kitchenettes are a handy/redundant feature in some of the rooms, depending on your desire to cook or be cooked for, but we're sure almost all guests will appreciate the curated collection of wines.

Poolside

There are two: an infinity-edged outdoor offering flanked on three sides by the hotel buildings, so you get all the views but none of the wind. Another awaits in the spa. The main pool is open between 9am and 9pm; the indoor one’s hours are 8am to 9pm (under-16s are welcome between 9am to 5pm; after that it's adults only).

Spa

The Chedi Spa has four treatment rooms for soothing Asian-inspired therapies, using seaweed-based Voya products. There’s also a relaxation area, sauna, steam room, indoor pool, and ‘experience shower’. It’s open from 8am until 9pm every day.

Packing tips

Boat shoes, chinos and salmon-pink shirts for seafaring Mr Smiths; oligarch-worthy oversized shades and sailor pants for Mrs Smith.

Also

Four rooms have been specially adapted for wheelchair users and most of the communal areas are accessible.

Children

All ages are welcome. Under-6s go free; extra beds and cots can be added for an extra cost. Babysitting is available, but must be booked in advance. There’s an outdoor play area and indoor playroom.

Sustainability efforts

The Chedi Lustica Bay is committed to sustainable development and positive environmental impact. Power in your room only comes on with your key card; water consumption is reduced through flow restrictors, and green choices are rewarded with experiences such as kayaking or bird-watching, bringing guests closer to the hotel’s natural surroundings. Waste is minimised, product lifespans are extended; in a circular supply chain, food waste is composted by the local farmers who stock the hotel kitchen with produce, and traditional and native ingredients are championed. Bottles are refillable, and reusable items like fabric laundry bags are employed. Chedi collaborates with third parties to recycle typically non-recyclable items and participates in the "Kilo for the Planet" initiative, cleaning a kilo of ocean waste for every purchase made at the hotel. Each room also includes a 'giving bag' so you can donate unwanted items to those in need in Montenegro.

Dress Code

Billion-dollar-bay worthy.

Hotel restaurant

There are two: the Restaurant and the Spot. The former cooks up local cuisine, including a breakfast of breads and pastries from the in-house bakery, wildflower honey and seasonal-fruit salad. Freestyle types will enjoy the counter where orders can be placed for whatever you fancy at that particular moment. The waterside Spot is in the middle of the marina, serving Asian-inspired curries, superfood salads and simple grilled fish, set to a regular soundtrack of DJs and live music. Don’t miss an expertly muddled cocktail, finished with locally foraged herbs.

Hotel bar

You’ve two drinking dens from which to choose: The Lobby Bar and another called The Rok that’s, predictably, set on a geological formation along the cliff edge. Light bites are served in both.

Worth getting out of bed for

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this hotel in Montenegro and unpacked their sunhats and sunglasses, a full account of their coastal break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside the Chedi Lustica Bay

Montenegro has long been attracting those with dollars to burn, but the developers of this glossy marina took it up a notch, gladly being relieved of two billion euros in the making of a modern super resort. Every last building is brand new, with bars, boutiques and nightclubs on the doorstep of this townhouse-style hotel (there’s no token Old Town to check out here). Montenegro’s famous limestone cliffs and cool Adriatic coast are there for the exploring And you won’t need to be far from the shore throughout your stay, courtesy of the views (and balconies) in most rooms. Ahoy, sailor: let’s get nautical.
