“All of us have, in our veins, the exact same percentage of salt that exists in the ocean, therefore we have salt in our blood, our sweat and in our tears. We are tied to the ocean, when we go back to the sea, whether to sail or to watch, we are going back to whence we came.” (JFK)

Sveti Stefan


When you say “Montenegro”, many people somehow imagine a mystical country, one that is not very well known, small, interesting, with beautiful seaside and coast (it has – at 13 kilometres – one of the longest beaches in Europe), impressively high mountains, wild nature, small historic cities and plenty of villages with churches, healthy food (vegetables and fruit), and few tourists.



The City of Kotor


On the other hand, in the last few years, a lot of new developments and luxury resorts have sprung up, so the reputation of this beautiful small country has changed; it is now seen as being a great place for luxury incentives.


Destinations on the Montenegrin coast – Herceg Novi, Budva and Kotor, Bečići, the capital Podgorica, or the Kolašin ski resort located in the north of the country – offer many TOP class hotels suitable for MICE events, including a vast range of original venues such as palaces, art and museum galleries, or venues surrounded by splendid local nature.






TOP Luxury Hotels in Montenegro – Seaside Options


Located in the small town of Bečići (not far from Budva), Splendid Conference & SPA Resort was opened in 2006, and it was the first 5-star hotel on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is situated only two kilometres from Budva and offers 322 superior rooms, most of them with a sea view, as well as four Junior and 13 Wellness suites, a Penthouse and a Presidential suite for VIP guests. There are four bars and three restaurants, a large spa centre and the Casino Royale. It also has a large conference venue that can host up to 800 people.


One of the most luxurious destinations in the Mediterranean is Sveti Stefan, which is sometimes called a “dream island”. Originally a fortress, it is named after a church that is located on the highest point of the island which in 1957 was turned into a unique resort. Now the most luxurious hotel in the Mediterranean specialises in exclusive tourism.


Some of the celebrities that have explored the beauty of Sveti Stefan are Sophia Loren, Monica Vitti, Kirk Douglas, Yuri Gagarin, Sylvester Stallone, Claudia Schiffer and many others. The famous chess match between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky took place there in 1992. Aman Hotels & Resorts bought the resort in 2007.


Regent Porto Montenegro, located in Porto Montenegro Village in Tivat (Kotor Boka) is the best luxury 5-star hotel in the country. It offers two accommodation wings – the Venezia Wing and the Aqua Wing – where guests can experience the chic style of the Italian Riviera or be surrounded by nautical sophistication that embodies the essence of this beautiful UNESCO destination. There are 140 rooms in total and a range of one to three-bedroom apartments.



The high-level port is home to a first-class yachting club with its 450 boat moorings and an excellent background for their owners and guests. The marina is also proud to be ISO certified in environmental protection and quality management. The location also presents myriad opportunities for corporate events and private parties. There is a team of high-level professionals that can help you to create an unforgettable event – social, yachting, cultural or otherwise.



The Largest Vineyard and Wine Cellar in Europe


In Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, you will find Europe’s largest single-location vineyard at Ćemovsko Polje, which covers an area of 2,350

Hectares. It is owned by the Plantaže company, which also produces the famous super wine which is available throughout the country. A vine leaf is part of the city crest. Plantaže also has the most interesting wine cellar in Europe in Šipčanik. It was formerly used as an aeroplane hangar, located around 30 metres underground; this 356-metre long tunnel now covers an area of 7,700 square metres.
