|Sveti Marko Island Project - Europe's First 6 Star Island|
"Sveti Marko" is an island of extraordinary natural beauty. Olive groves, sub-tropical vegetation and elegant cypress trees clothe the island with rich greenery and vibrant colours. Crystal clear waters bathe intimate bays and coves, overlooked only by towering and magnificent mountain ranges. Sveti Marko is an island to cherish, and nature of this beauty will not be compromised in the pursuit of 6-star luxury. The development density on the island will be ultra-low so to create a nature reserve with walks and trails for owners, hotel guests and island visitors. Cutting-edge sustainability and advanced recycling strategies are being used, and the only vehicles on Sveti Marko will be electric-powered. What has been gloriously unspoilt will be carefully preserved.
Master-plan was made according to the highest world standards. According to a unique concept the main idea of development will be to save nature of Island, which general area is 349 250 square meters. Approximate footprint coefficient is only 14 %. The general area which will be under construction is 79 790 square meters. The using of only environmentally safe technologies will give an opportunity to keep beaches which length is about 4 kilometers wild. For this purpose electricity will become a single source of energy for all transport on the Island.
In February 2010 the Government of Montenegro approved the State Location Study of the Sveti Marko Island project. The period of validity of the decision is up to 2020. The State Location Study is the General Plan. In such a way a process of preparation of approvals for Sveti Marko Island project is on the last stage.
