Regent Porto Montenegro Launches the Aqua Wing

Offering Plush Branded Units & a Splashy Pool Lagoon

TAIPEI, TW. September 25, 2017 - Following the success of its first phase - the Venezia Wing, Regent Porto Montenegro, nestled on palm-fringed shores along the Adriatic coast, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its second phase - the Aqua Wing. Adjacent to the Venezia Wing, this wing is located at an exceptional location overlooking the celebrated Porto Montenegro Yacht Club.

Available for residential use in addition to a traditional hotel stay, the Aqua Wing features 62 luxury suites and rooms. The one, two, and three bedroom units range from 95 sq. ft. to 925 sq. ft. Each is equipped with full-sized kitchens, spacious living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms as well as flat-screen TVs, a Bose sound system, and well-appointed furniture in rich dark tones that is beautifully juxtaposed with beige interiors. Many units boast outdoor balconies or terraces. The daily nightly rates start at $452/night and are also available for full ownership purchase.

The award-winning WATG Architects of London and MHZ interiors of Paris joined forces to create the Aqua Wing. Offering unobstructed sea and mountain views, the new wing’s interiors evoke a sense of Italian Riviera flair. The large internal atriums and fully glazed external walls allow ample sunlight to flood into each room. A symphony of elegance and repose, the building features earthy shades of beige, straw, and grass which pairs harmoniously with sumptuous furniture in rich dark tones.

In addition, the Aqua Wing introduces a new pool lagoon complex. Covering over 10,000 sq. ft., the new pool area, surrounded by cabanas, is comprised of four pools, including two children’s pools, one lap pool, and one main pool. The Pool Bar offers refreshments and features live DJ performances. Fun family activities and kids camps will take place seasonally.

Guests at the Aqua Wing can enjoy exclusive access to the facilities and amenities at the Venezia Wing, including the state-of-the-art gym, infinity swimming pools, meeting facilities, and the spectacular Regent Spa. The hotel has five restaurants - The Dining Room, Gourmet Corner, Library Bar, Pool Bar, and Italian Garden, where Mediterranean cuisine blends with Asian influences: a reflection of Regent Hotels & Resorts’ Asian heritage.

Coming Up In The November Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
