Overview

Perched on isthmus in the Adriatic Sea, Aman Sveti Stefan hotel occupies a converted 15th-century fishing village and a shoreside, turn-of-the-century royal villa. Rooms in red-tiled cottages and sea-front suites let you live like a local throughout your stay. It’s a devastatingly romantic place, which will inspire fantasies about medieaval Montenegrin living. However, spa cottages, three pools and restaurants, and attentive beach service are a reminder that this is a wholly modern seaside stop.

Highlights:

  • Seafront setting

  • Sensational spa

  • Historic hideaway

Packing tips:

Mariner’s maps will help aspiring sailors chart courses to seemingly untouched villages along the Adriatic.

Dress code:

Suit the setting with maxi dresses and linen in stony neutrals and sea blue.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Montenegro and unpacked their swimwear and sun hats, a full account of their Adriatic Coast break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Aman Sveti Stefan…

Aman Sveti Stefan is less like a boutique hotel than an opportunity to make believe you live in a tiny, 15th-century Montenegrin fishing village, tethered to Europe by one tiny stone path. The island is a warren of beautiful nooks to poke into with eye-drawing vistas at each turn. Lining cobbled lanes, the hotel’s suites have been meticulously restored, adding warm lighting to original accents, soaking tubs and windows places to maximise views. Interiors of the island’s cottages were inspired by old fishermen’s dwellings, with stone walls, neutral textiles and views of the Adriatic. As a local might have done, head to the main square for Adriatic-sourced seafood at Piazza, a restaurant set across terraces with sea views. Though the world-class spa and sensational service are entirely new, they contribute to fantasies of an entirely modern nature.

Dining information

Restaurant:

Up on the cliff, with sweeping Adriatic views, Arva serves Mediterranean and classic Montenegrin dishes, made with locally sourced ingredients, including regional cheeses, cured meats and octopus and sea bass fished from the surrounding waters. A local specialty, lamb in milk, is perfectly tender and ideal with a glass of Vranac Reserve red wine. The aptly named Piazza is an alfresco restaurant set over several terrace levels in the village square. The menu includes snacks, pastas and seafood, served on candlelit tables. There's also a beachside restaurant with alfresco snacks.

Top Table:

Take a table on the lower terrace of Arva, for extra privacy and a view of the historic church.

Last Orders:

Arva serves breakfast from 7am to 10am, and dinner from 6pm to 10pm; Piazza offers food all day, from 7am to 10pm.

Room Service:

In-room dining is available anytime on the main island, and from 7am until midnight in Villa Milocer. The menu includes a selection of baked goods, salads, seafood dishes and sandwiches.

Hotel Bar:

Rakija Bar, an open space attached to Arva restaurant, is an ideal spot to try the hotel's signature cocktail, with local fruit brandy, elderflower extract, grenadine and vanilla. Guitarists play live music twice a week.
