With an atmospheric old town, beautiful beaches and a thriving nightlife, Budva is the most popular tourist destination in Montenegro. And, when you’re not chilling at Bečići beach, taking a day trip to Sveti Stefan or sampling the coastal cuisine, you’ll want a nice hotel in which to relax. Thankfully, Budva provides something for every type of traveller, from spa hotels with private beaches to out-of-town budget accommodation.
Living up to the name, this is a splendid hotel, with family-friendly credentials, a beachfront location, multiple eating options and plush accommodation. Set on the edge of Budva, it has a private beach with a volleyball court, and there are a tennis court and six pools in which to splash about. Parents can relax at the spa, thanks to the onsite babysitting. Choose between three main restaurants, including an à la carte Asian spot.
Welcome to the highest building in Budva – with views to match. The hotel comprises three glass towers with 252 contemporary suites, a panoramic spa and a rooftop restaurant. Accommodation feels sleek, with wood floors and neutral colour schemes. The three-bedroom suite is the ultimate pad if you’re after some pampering, with a chandelier-hung living room, private terrace and Jacuzzi bath.
There’s a grand feel to the white façade of this four-star hotel, located on the seafront promenade in Budva, a 10-minute stroll from the fortified Old Town. Rooms are bright and contemporary, and there’s a lovely terrace restaurant plus a wellness centre with a gym and pool. Rooms and suites feature marble bathrooms and large walk-in showers. Grab a sundowner at the pool bar, or tuck into local, modern cuisine at the main restaurant.
You’ll be just 200 yards (183m) from both the Old Town and the beach at this centrally located hotel, which has a lovely terrace restaurant for al fresco breakfasts. Rooms are spacious and have a pared-back style, with muted colour schemes, marble bathrooms and plenty of natural light. The Hemingway Bar & Restaurant has an à la carte menu, though you’re also well-positioned to explore the local bars and cafes.
Hidden amid olive groves and cypress trees in front of the sea, this hotel has sweeping ocean views and luxurious rooms with total privacy. The residences range from one-bedroom (sleeping two adults and one child) to three-bedroom pads that can accommodate up to six adults and one child. For added luxe, plump for a penthouse – they have the finest views and large terraces with hot tubs.
With a private beach, impressive outdoor pools overlooking the sea and a smart wellness centre, you may never want to leave the grounds of this relaxing hotel. But the delights of Budva are right on the doorstep if you do. Onsite facilities include a restaurant, a pizzeria and a beach bar, plus a gym, a sauna and a Turkish bath. Families can opt for a two-bedroom suite or villa, which feature large sea-facing balconies.
Located in the heart of the town, this is a great choice for foodies, thanks to its celebrated restaurant on the ground floor, beloved for more than 50 years. The hotel also has a wine bar, an aperitif bar and one of the best bakeries in Budva. Rooms are modern and bright, with turquoise walls and big windows that look towards either the sea or town.
