Located on the gorgeous Adriatic coast of Montenegro, Sveti Stefan is a five-star hotel resort that resembles paradise. The tiny island fortress gives way to panoramic Adriatic Sea views.
For many, the view of the island fortress alone is one of the highlights of a trip to Montenegro. The island is connected to the mainland by a narrow land bridge, giving the resort the atmosphere of exclusivity.
The holiday hotels in Sveti Stefan stretch back across to the mainland. Rooms in these hotels offer views of the famous island for those that prefer a hotel on firm ground.
For those wanting to explore the island, visitors must book a hotel within its fortified walls. The island, though visually-desirable, isn’t immediately open to all, and wandering the narrow lanes and discovering its small picturesque church is an adventure only open to those staying at the island resort. However, for a small price, visitors can venture through the island fortress if staying on the mainland.
The amazing 15th century villas that make up Sveti Stefan look out across sparkling waters and golden sands. Once a playground for European playboys, Sveti Stefan now offers everyone the chance to experience a resort once dedicated to the rich and famous.
