This one-of-a-kind resort in Montenegro offers a bucket-list experience…
Set along the Adriatic Sea, Montenegro is one of Europe’s most breathtaking coastlines, offering new discoveries around every single bend. Baroque Travel’s favorite? The lavish Aman Sveti Stefan.
Attached to the magnificent Montenegro coastline by a narrow isthmus that is too small for cars, this plush seaside hideaway is located on its own tiny island and offers all the ingredients for a romantic escape – cobbled little streets, shaded courtyards and six-centuries old red-tiled roofs, not to mention three pink sand beaches and every possible luxury facility imaginable.
Way back in the fifteenth century, the little cottages on pedestrianized Sveti Stefan formed a fortified village. Meticulously transformed into 58 luxurious stand-alone suites, rooms and cottages are accessed via cobbled footpaths and staircases that follow the island’s contours; each is uniquely designed and decorated, combining historic features with contemporary reinterpretations.
Of course, dining at Sveti Stefan is an experience in its own right. Local ingredients fill the menus at the resort’s various dining venues that include the fabulous Aman Restaurant, the convivial open-air Piazza with its Enoteca, Taverna and Antipasti Bar as well as an intimate Dining Room at Villa Milocer, located on the coast alongside various Suites and the state-of-the-art Spa. Guests enjoy organic produce, sea bass, octopus and rock oysters directly from the sea, and pasture-fed beef from the northern part of Montenegro, as well as local cheeses, honeys, jams, olive oils and herbs.
Aman Sveti Stefan is also renowned for its generous wellness offerings at the standalone Spa, located on the 32-hectare estate on the mainland, along with three swimming pools, Turkish Baths, a gym and yoga and Pilates pavilions. The Spa follows a holistic, personalised approach that incorporates movement, relaxation, a choice of therapies and nutrition. There are also three hydrotherapy suites that feature steam rooms, saunas and plunge pools. Daily classes, treatments and a personalized wellness menu are all part of the Spa packages.
Once a Royal summer residence, Villa Milocer, located alongside the Spa on the mainland, now offers plush suites overlooking the sea and Aman Sveti Stefan. Some suites have views of lush parkland, where more than 800 olive trees rub shoulders with ancient cedar and pine forests.
One of the highlights of a stay here, aside from the exclusivity of the resort, is exploring Montenegro in depth, with its ancient forests, pristine lakes and meandering coastline offering new adventures and ancient towns at every turn. Just to the north of Aman Sveti Stefan is the fifth-century town of Budva and further up the coast one finds the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Bay of Kotor. If you’re in the mood for sailing, you can journey from Aman Sveti Stefan up the coast to discover secluded bays, where you can enjoy privacy in a solitary swim or savor a picnic lunch.
