Located in Herceg Novi, at the entrance of Boka Bay, a fjord-like idyll on Montenegro’s Adriatic Coast, One&Only Portonovi is a year-round haven where cultural wonders and fresh-air adventures meet the glamour of Europe’s most fashionable new riviera. Surrounded by dramatic coastline and spectacular mountains, guests can explore a nautical playground, discover fascinating UNESCO World Heritage sites or escape to the resort’s sparkling pools and private sandy beach that rivals the finest in the Mediterranean.
The first One&Only resort in Europe, this ultra-luxury retreat is home to Chenot Espace, offering pioneering treatments scientifically designed to enhance guests’ vitality and optimum health. The culinary experience, led by executive chef Nancy Kinchela, includes refined Italian dishes from one of the world’s best Italian chefs at Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli, contemporary Japanese dining at Tapasake Club and farm-to-table fresh Montenegrin cuisine. Tapasake Club is the energetic soul of the resort, where guests can lounge by the pool and experience the atmosphere building during the day, culminating in performances by legendary DJs.
The resort is designed on an impressive scale to reflect the architectural style of the old Venetian palaces of the region including grand facades, majestic colonnades, signature red terracotta roofs, gardens and an extraordinary array of indoor and outdoor pools. One&Only Portonovi’s elegant guest rooms, suites and villas are positioned for guests to enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding marina, bay and mountains, with various interconnecting options and clusters for groups and families seeking flexible space. The spacious 123 guest rooms, suites and villas feature sleek, modern fireplaces for cooler nights, expansive bathrooms the same size as the bedrooms with space to recline and lounge, as well as large floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces for guests to relax against the backdrop of the mountain and bay views.
One&Only Portonovi’s Suite One is a one-bedroom presidential suite with a private wine cellar which guests can choose to stock with their personal selection of many bottles of wine from Europe and the region, an outdoor dining area seating up to twelve people with sublime views of the mountains and bay, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a separate butler entrance.
The resort offers two secluded expansive villas; the three-bedroom Villa One (463m² interior and 1,750m² outdoor space) and two-bedroom Villa Two (218m² interior and 930m² outdoor space). Each villa is set in its own fragrant garden with an outdoor shower and private pool, as well as a hydrotherapy pool with six massage stations, and incredible sunset views over the Adriatic Sea, all paired with exceptional service from a dedicated team of butlers, chefs and valets.
