Sandwiched between Croatia and Albania, the hidden Adriatic jewel of Montenegro (“Black Mountain”) is an upmarket yet unassuming destination.
With its jagged mountains and fjords, Montenegro combines stunning scenery with medieval history, and a high-end Mediterranean yachting scene. Our Mediterranean specialists tip Montenegro to be one the hottest luxury travel destinations for 2015!
The Montenegrin coast reached its glamorous peak in the 50s and 60s, when it served as a luxurious retreat for European royalty and silver screen stars including Sophia Loren. Today, two modern developments in particular are leading the luxury comeback.
The first, Porto Montenegro, is a billionaire’s playground, which has become one of the most exclusive stops on the Mediterranean yacht scene. Its boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants and bars certainly makes it one of our favourite luxury marinas. The second, Sveti Stefan, now hosts an ultra-luxury resort by Aman, occupying a restored 15th century ‘village’ on its own idyllic island in classic Aman style.
Montenegro’s medieval charm is best showcased in Kotor’s Unesco-certified Old Town, packed full of old ruins and houses, small piazzas and cobbled streets. The surrounding coastline is some of the most stunning in the Mediterranean with grand mountains, fjords and sweeping beaches. Our consultants always enjoy a taste of the great outdoors in Montenegro, including hiking and biking in national parks, and yachting and kayaking on Adriatic.
