Best luxury hotels in Montenegro
1. Regent Porto Montenegro
Regent Porto Montenegro lies in the heart of the beautiful marina, Porto Montenegro, in Tivat. The hotel has 87 luxurious rooms as well as a full spa, gym, and indoor and outdoor pools. In 2018 Regent Porto Montenegro’s pool beat tough competition like Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus to win the Villegiature Best Swimming Pool in a Hotel in Europe award.
Surrounding the hotel is Porto Montenegro Village, which has a range of waterfront restaurants and retail stores. Porto Montenegro just steps away from Tivat, a compact town that you can get around on foot. Tivat is also just 10 minutes drive from the world-famous Kotor old town and Budva’s lively beaches and nightlife, which makes it the perfect base for exploring Montenegro’s beautiful sights.
2. Aman Sveti Stefan
Undeniably one of the best places to stay in Budva, Aman Sveti Stefan is synonymous with luxury on the Budva Riviera. This five-star resort has beautiful rooms and suites on a private 15th-century island, surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise sea and its own pink pebble beach. The resort also includes Villa Miločer, a former royal summer residence, with a private cove and set in a forest of 800 olive trees. With a fabulous spa and a focus on local, organic ingredients in its restaurants, Aman Sveti Stefan is an unforgettable place to experience the true essence of the Budva Riviera.
3. Hotel La Roche
At the other end of Tivat’s waterfront, Hotel La Roche is a boutique hotel on the Tivat waterfront. The hotel’s rooms are opulently furnished in nautical blues and have views over Sveti Marko Island. But the place to really enjoy the view is from the rooftop pool and sundeck. Unlike most Tivat hotels, Hotel La Roche has a swimming area for guests in front of the hotel, which makes it a top spot for summer stays.
The hotel’s central location means all of Tivat’s top restaurants, nightlife, and Porto Montenegro are just a few minutes’ walks away.
4. Iberostar Perast
Located in the idyllic town of Perast, there could be no better location for Iberostar Perast. It is here where many international guests come to hide away in a luxurious setting. The hotel has been recently refurbished but maintains all the history and heritage it had from the beginning. Perast is perhaps the most idyllic town in the entire country, making this a great choice.
5. Villa Geba
Villa Geba is a stylish boutique hotel that presents to its guests eight luxury and individually designed contemporary suites. The hotel is constructed to feel like a family home with interiors paying tribute to the plethora that makes Montenegro such a beautiful destination; think Roman columns and Greek vestals combined with a modern and minimalistic setting.
Guests can take time out to relax in the luxurious spa or private swimming or for the ultimate indulgence in-suite massages can also be enjoyed.
Although each suite has kitchen facilities guests can also dine at MUSE, the hotel’s celebrated restaurant and bar, with a Parisian bistro-inspired atmosphere and menu. Elegant décor and an exceptional collection of wines complement a menu to complement the refined cuisine.
6. Hotel Forza Mare
Situated in the quiet hamlet of Dobrota, near the stunning Venetian town of Kotor, Hotel Forza Mare is a boutique five-star hotel in the Bay of Kotor. The waterfront hotel has a private guest beach and seaside restaurant, a perfect place for watching the boats coast by over a candlelit dinner of fresh seafood. This was Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s hotel of choice during their visit to Kotor. Hotel Forza Mare has themed rooms, each one unique. Choose from Chinese, Japanese, Vesuvius, or the traditional Montenegrin suite.
7. Iberostar Grand Perast
If you want to experience the old-world charm in Montenegro, Perast is the place to stay. It’s a UNESCO-listed town full of old palaces and stone churches that reflect the Bay of Kotor’s wealthy seafaring past, and it’s just 15 minutes from Kotor.
Iberostar Grand Perast is one of the newest luxury hotels in Montenegro and it’s located in the center of this historic town. During your stay, you’ll be able to enjoy views of Perast’s island churches, Our Lady of the Rocks, and St George, as well as the ever-changing views as boats glide through the bay.
There’s just one beach in Perast and this hotel doesn’t have its own swimming area, but it offers complimentary speedboat transfers to a nearby beach club, or you can choose to explore some of the nearby beaches in Risan and Dobrota.
