Perhaps the most iconic image associated with Montenegro, the fortified island of Sveti Stefan dates back to a time when Adriatic pirates held sway over this crystal-clear coastline. Attached to the mainland by a narrow isthmus, the restored village lies across the bay from Villa Milocer, a former royal retreat. Along with 80 acres of grounds, two kilometres of beaches and a standalone Aman Spa, these two historic sites comprise Aman Sveti Stefan.
Aman Sveti Stefan lies at the centre of Montenegro’s sun-drenched coastline, southwest of the capital, Podgorica. A short drive or sail away from the ancient town of Budva and the UNESCO-protected Bay of Kotor.

These meticulously restored dwellings feature hand-rendered stucco, stone and local oak, in keeping with the village’s rustic legacy, with views out to sea or over fragrant gardens On the mainland, the 19th- century Villa Milocer lies on the coastline amid some 800 olive trees, surrounded by ancient forests of pine and cedar. The residence is home to six elegant suites, with two further suites in a separate building. We will have exclusive access to the entire resort for the three days and nights of our retreat.

Aman Sveti Stefan celebrates the conviviality and warmth of traditional Adriatic family dining with a seasonal, sociable and sustainable sourced focus. Traditional ingredients are grown in gardens or on farms, foraged from forest floors or plucked fresh from the oceans. Succulent marinated meats are cooked over an open fire and local breads and sourdough pizzas are freshly baked in the authentic wood-fired oven. The range of mouth-watering super-food salads with organic ingredients such as wild rice, quinoa and avocado changes daily. To match Aman Sveti Stefan’s food offerings, the resort boasts its own wine in collaboration with local winemaker Goran Radevic of the Radevic Estate, as well as an international wine list, a vast selection of premium rums and gins, 40 types of Rakija (local fruit brandy) over 40 Single Malt whiskeys and signature cocktails.
