Looking for a five-star hotel in Montenegro? With its glittering Adriatic coastline, rising green mountains and fascinating culture, there are plenty of reasons that Montenegro should be on your destination bucket list. From beach resorts on the Adriatic Sea to boutique boltholes in Kotor, Culture Trip has you covered.
Sitting on the Bay of Kotor, in the quiet hamlet of Dobrota, Forza Mare is a boutique five-star hotel with a celebrity pedigree – this is where Beyoncé and Jay-Z stayed during their visit to the region. The waterfront hotel has a private guest beach and seaside restaurant, a perfect place for watching the boats coast by over a candlelit dinner of fresh seafood. Inside, you’ll find 10 themed rooms, each unique. Choose from a globehopping selection, perhaps the Zen-inducing minimalism of the Japan room will catch your eye, or maybe the statement pink flamingo wall of the Chile room is more your thing.
Forza Terra in Dobrota is a boutique five-star hotel that pays homage to the glory days of the Bay of Kotor. Wake up to bay views, then wander down to the private beach under the palms. Aside from a modern, Mediterranean restaurant, the hotel has an onsite enoteca where you can try local and foreign wines, along with a wellness centre and glorious sea views. Quiet Dobrota is ideally located for exploring the bay – stop at Perast town, Our Lady of the Rocks island church, Kotor and Lovćen National Park.
The Hilton name is synonymous with quality, and this outpost is no exception. In the heart of downtown Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, the hotel has 180 elegant rooms and suites, each with city views. But the best vistas are from the rooftop bar, where you can sit around a fire pit and take in the city lights. The Ottoman old town, Stara Varoš, and key attractions such as the Ribnica fortress are a few minutes’ walk away. Just around the corner, Bokeška Street is the place to bar hop and enjoy the nightlife.
