Deciding where to stay in Montenegro is difficult when you’re so spoilt for choice in this Balkan country. Will it be five-star seaside luxury or an atmospheric old town such as Kotor? Maybe a holiday spent wandering mountain trails around Durmitor National Park and picking wildflowers? In a land that’s both stunning and diverse, here are the most beautiful places to stay in Montenegro.
The top place to stay here is the five-star Aman Sveti Stefan, but there are also lots of budget-friendly hotels with killer views in this natural paradise.
The TYHA platinum-rated marina is also just steps from Tivat town, where visitors can take boat tours – and find great restaurants, nightlife and swim spots. The five-star Regent Porto Montenegro has luxurious rooms right on the Adriatic.
Perast is ideally positioned opposite the Verige Strait, so visitors have an ever-changing view of boats passing. The two island churches just offshore complete the perfect postcard picture. Visitors love staying here for the beautiful views – and because it’s a car-free town, they can stroll along the seaside to their favourite restaurant for a candlelit dinner by the sea.
Castel Lastva, the 16th-century fortress at the northern end of the town, juts out into the bay and two islands float just offshore. Not only is this idyllic Mediterranean township a beautiful place to stay, it’s close to key attractions like Budva and Skadar Lake.
This area is also known for its excellent boutique wineries – wine tastings start from just €10. It’s also the ideal place to try local rakija (brandy), honey, ham, cheese and carp from the lake.
In the old town, violins in the music school serenade passersby, while Belavista Square is the place to catch up with friends over a coffee.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.

We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day.
