By the end of the year Luštica Bay will have completed the two most important anchors in phase one of the project – the marina and The Chedi hotel

Luštica bay is so sensitively woven into the local landscape it’s hard to believe that in 2008, the only buildings in the area were some old military barracks and the ruins of a romantic Austro- Hungarian fort. The peninsular was empty, virgin coastline and Luštica Bay itself a mere gleam in the eye of Orascom’s visionary chairman, Samih Sawiris.

Luštica Bay’s original planners were entrusted with the task of turning this spectacular site, a former military training ground of 6.9 million square metres, into a living, breathing Montenegrin town; a place where some residents would buy second homes and others live all year round.

The building project might take as long as 15 years, but even when the community’s infrastructure is completed, Orascom will continue to operate, manage, and run the town’s services in consultation with its residents, as it does in all of its other town developments.

Ultimately, Luštica Bay will include a richly diverse property portfolio, two world-class marinas, seven hotels and a Gary Player-designed signature 18-hole championship golf course, not to mention beaches, shops, restaurants and cafes, sporting facilities, schools and medical centres to cater to the community it set out to develop.

Excitingly, 2018 marks the completion of phase one of the project. ‘We’re rapidly approaching a critical mass, both in terms of physical construction and numbers of residents,’ says CEO Darren Gibson. ‘It has been extremely satisfying to reap the rewards of all that hard work and have the key elements in place.’

Back in 2008, it was important the team took time to plan, research and reflect. The master plan they devised covered the architectural standards they sought to achieve and the aesthetic they envisaged, always focusing on the community they intended to welcome and the eco-sustainability of the entire infrastructure.
