Aman Sveti Stefan, Montenegro
best hotels aman sveti stefan

Opened May 2011

One of the most recent additions to the portfolio of hotel visionary Adrian Zecha's spectacular Aman Resorts, this Balkan paradise, located in the center of Montenegro's Adriatic coastline, sits on the site of a former fortified 15th-century village. Nestled amid cedar and pine forests and surrounded by olive trees, the resort offers six "spa cottages" scattered across the property; a larger, deluxe spa is planned for 2013. And a trip here will instantly make you a card-carrying member of the travel cognoscenti. Following the lead of its neighbor to the west, Croatia, which has seen a steady uptick in boldface-name visitors during the past few years, Montenegro appears poised to be the next big thing in travel: The World Travel & Tourism Council predicts the country's annual investment in travel and tourism will grow by an average of 16.4% through 2021 -- higher than that of any other country in the world.

From $985
