Hotel Description

It’s hard to avoid the word “perfect” when talking about a place like the Aman Sveti Stefan. One can imagine ways in which the hotel could be different. Perhaps the six serene spa cottages could float upon the emerald-green water of the Adriatic Sea, instead of nestling away amidst the ancient groves of fragrant coastal pines. But better? No, it doesn’t really get any better than an eighty-acre private Montenegrin island and former royal villa converted into an Aman resort.

If you’ve seen photographs of Montenegro, then you’ve probably seen the island of Sveti Stefan. It’s the country’s most iconic sight, an impossibly picturesque islet connected to the mainland by the narrowest sliver of land, surrounded by ancient defensive walls and dotted with old red-roofed buildings. Today the entire village is in the hands of Aman. From the outside it looks every bit the historic Adriatic fishing village that it is, only better maintained; while on the inside, of course, it has gotten the Aman treatment — spacious suites that paradoxically feel both maximally luxurious and stripped of all excess. The look is almost rustic, with the ancient stone walls left intact and original details like massive wooden beams in the ceilings, but sprawling spa-like bathrooms and dreamy king beds and the richest materials used throughout ensure that, despite the traditional look, it doesn’t feel for a moment like actual 15-century fishing village life.

For some indication of the sort of attention to detail you can expect, consider this. When Aman took over and landscaped the island, they planted rosemary and thyme amidst the olive and cypress groves that were already there, the better to scent the breezes wafting off the sea. And as if that weren’t enough, they added a smattering of fruit trees so that when you’re walking along the quiet, meandering stone paths, you can pluck a handful of a grapes or a pomegranate warm from the sun, and eat it on the go. It’s the kind of stuff that can forever spoil a person; how can even the most bountiful complimentary fruit plate compare?

All this and we haven’t even gotten to the royal villa yet, or the hotel’s three secluded little beaches, or the cliffside pool, or the discreet and intuitive service, or the many restaurants and bars tucked into one tree-shaded courtyard and scenic promontory and beachside dining room after another. Suffice to say they’re everything you’d expect given the price — or to set the bar even higher, everything you’d expect from an Aman.

How to get there: Three main airports act as gateways to Aman Sveti Stefan. In Montenegro, Tivat Airport (TIV) is 21 miles and about a 30-minute drive from the resort, while Podgorica Airport (TGD) is 34 miles and just over an hour’s drive away. Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) in Čilipi, Croatia is located 50 miles from the resort, about a 2½-hour drive. Travel times vary from season to season. The resort provides complimentary airport transfers to and from Tivat, and can arrange transfers from Podgorica and Dubrovnik Airports for an additional charge.
