Why is summer in Port 9 so irresistible? Let’s go through our schedule of incredible events you can participate in and experience when you land in the safe haven of the Shells Bay. The resort delights its guests with its thoughtful offer, creating a bridge between the thousand-year-old tradition of Korčula and a modern approach to tourism.
VENTULA @17.00 h - TEA O’CLOCK
In the desire to please a large number of our guests coming from Great Britain, but also from all other parts of the world, we organize Tea o'clock on the first day of the week. This is an event where a tea party is organized at 17 o'clock and our guests may freely taste some of the traditional Dalmatian cakes or the international Bundt cake à la Korčula with their cup of tea. With only a little bit of your imagination and good will, in synergy with the pronounced enthusiasm and courtesy of our staff - we will also make a (hush little baby) "tee table" for our youngest guests!
MATRIKULA @19.00 h - DALMATIAN DINNER
The Dalmatian dinner is a themed dinner through which we would, during the summer, like to give our Port 9 guests at least a small taste of the Dalmatian culinary art. Alongside traditional Dalmatian dishes served this evening (fish, shrimp, octopus, chard, prosciutto and cheese…), you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a live performance of the Dalmatian traditional klapa, singing traditional Dalmatian songs, and at the entrance you will be greeted by our own Marco Polo.
VENTULA @17.00 h - HOMEMADE KORČULA PRODUCTS CORNER
At our Homemade Korčula Products Corner event you can attend a presentation of traditional Korčula products we have on offer during the afternoon. Guests may taste the products and hear stories about the origin and creation of the products on the island. We bring you only a small part of the offer: Kumparak honey, Port 9 jams, Port 9 olive oil, Komparak olive oil, Arancin – a dessert made from orange peel, candied almonds, OK beer (Okusi Korčule hr.- which means Tastes of Korčula). All tastings are free of charge and each of these products is available for purchase.
ROSOLIO/LUSTRIN @21.15 h - DANCE/LATINO NIGHT
Once a week, after dinner, we organize a dance-latino night. Latino cocktails, torches, the most famous Latino melodies ... With the support of our entertainment team, we want to encourage our guests to dance and have fun. We also choose the best dancing couple who, apart from a diploma, also win an a la carte dinner in Ala Longa.
VENTULA @20.30 h - GIN NIGHT LESSON
We develop the concept of G&T through the gin night lesson evening. Every Wednesday, we proudly present four different combinations of Gin and Tonic. During the presentation, we introduce you to an interesting story about the creation of gin, its production and preservation, the types of gin... Especially for this occasion, allow us to treat you to a sensational Gin & Tonic cake!
MATRIKULA @21.00 h - FIRE SHOW
As you can see from the name itself, it will be hot at the peak of the season! It wouldn’t do to reveal what amazing illumination experiences you, our dear guests, have yet to discover and experience. However, we'll hint that: “This summer, look for ways to “warm up” on the glass terrace with a special fiery performance!”
ARANCIN @21.30 h - FIRE BEACH PARTY
After the Fire Show on the Matrikula terrace, we go down to the newly renovated beach and organize an after-show party. So, when the fun on the Fire Show heats things up - you have a chance to continue to have fun by the water! At the Fire Beach Party, you will cool down and freshen up with the aromatic and therapeutic sea shore, where one of our Instagram corners is waiting for you!
ALA LONGA @20.00 h - WINE TASTING
With a 10-euro ticket price, Wine Tasting enables us to introduce guests to unique flavors and select wine lists of Korčula and Pelješac vineyards. For 60 minutes, we will introduce you to select wines, and the chef of our Ala Longa restaurant will especially prepare finger food for this occasion.
INFINTY POOL/WELLNESS @21.00 h - GONG THERAPY
Awaken your mind and emotions with the Sound Gong Therapy called "A Journey Through Time and Space". In sound therapy, you will experience the sounds of planetary gongs (Earth, Luna, and Jupiter), as well as the sounds of many other instruments worshiped in different cultures. This is where the sound vibration processes begin... Relax and enjoy!
ARANCIN/VENTULA @21.00 h - THEMATIC PARTY
A new theme party is held every week in the Arancin or Ventula areas. Last season, we enjoyed the unforgettable summer stories of the White Party, Pink Party, Red Party, and Sweet September Party... this season, we will continue with more new ideas. Every party is accompanied by a special decoration of the space, corresponding to that week’s theme, and a welcome drink awaits you at the entrance!
ALA LONGA @17.00 h - SHOW COOKING
During a one-hour workshop, guests have the opportunity to learn how to prepare the traditional Žrnovski makarun, with the supervision and explanation of our chefs. It is one of the most famous delicacies from Korčula, traditionally prepared and placed on the island's dinner table. Do not miss out on learning how to prepare this traditional dish from Korčula and book your place on the workshop in time. Carpe diem!
LUSTRIN/ALA LONGA @21.15 h - MOVIE UNDER STARS
On various terraces, bars, and beaches of Port 9 Resort, this summer you can watch projections of famous movies under the stars. Of course, you cannot watch a movie without popcorn, so we serve it as well!
