Our traditional themed summer party, coloured with the magic of 'La Dolce Vita' this year, was held in the magically decorated ambience of the luxurious MARTINIS MARCHI castle and marina. The unique concept in which Martinis Marchi combines pleasure and discreet luxury every year through top-themed entertainment, gastronomy, art and fashion provides an unforgettable feeling to everyone who managed to be part of the spectacle in this beautiful oasis on the Adriatic.
The gathered guests, owners of expensive Sunseeker yachts, guests of the famous heritage hotel-castle, which at its discretion hosts numerous world names from the business, sports and entertainment world, but also residents and guests of the entire island of Šolta, with exceptional interest, filled the Martinis Marchi marina again this year, during the new themed summer party in Maslinica.
During hot, sunny days, guests enjoyed adrenaline activities with the beautiful sea "toys" of the FLITE company, and those who were eager to explore the beauty of the island enjoyed scenic, quiet rides in luxury limousines from partner Jolly-Autoline; the Maybach GLS or the new fully electric limousine MERCEDES EQS. The afternoons were reserved for art exhibitions and painting workshops or simply lazily enjoying the joys of the sea in the clear turquoise sea with Italicus cocktails or a glass of the famous Mumm champagne.
The most beautiful sunset on the Adriatic followed the official opening and the thanks of the procurator of the Martinis Marchi estate, Mr Ivan Kuret, to his valuable team for the preparation of such a demanding event; Frane Cecić Acosta - marina manager, Toni Miloš - F&B manager, Tihana Mravak Sivić - heritage hotel manager and Marija Gamulin - event manager & marketing. The thanks continued to all the event partners and the most loyal guests, who return to this special place every year! "Although this is the 11th year in a row, we note a large number of our dear guests who did not miss a single first weekend in August to enjoy right here with us, which makes us even more happy and motivated!" said Ivan Kuret proudly.
The official opening continued with stunning series of dance and acrobatic performances coloured with nostalgic melodies of Italy from the 60s, all specially prepared for this event, as well as the famous Vespa from that time, which became a favourite addition to all the guests' photos.
The party under the stars continued in the sumptuous gardens of the castle on a beautifully landscaped lawn reminiscent of the most elegant and glamorous parties in the capital of fashion, art and entertainment, Italy. With a luxurious buffet, the guests enjoyed the well-known melodies from the 60s, through which The Swingers band, with their skilful interpretation, awakened nostalgia for those good times. A special guest, the German singing star Marc Terenzi, provided a slightly more modern sound. The enjoyment of the delicacies was completed by pairing them with the top wines of the Litterarii winery and the indispensable Jana water.
During the dinner, visitors also enjoyed in fashion surprise, the presentation of the IKONA collection, which was created as a result of the collaboration between designer Kristina Burja - KRIE design, stylist Iva Gradiser and TVhost Marijana Batinić by the designers themselves. The three creative forces have created a collection that is timeless and inspiring, just like the Martinis Marchi property, where they shot the campaign for the collection a few months ago. Feminine combinations, presented through living dolls in a fairy-tale setting and the decoration of the castle's gardens, were like a fashion spell that delighted all the guests who like to enjoy the discretion and rest that can rarely be found with the exceptional, still hidden beauty of our coast and top gastronomic offers.
