A different kind of escape
There’s nowhere quite like Portonovi. From days at sea to nights spent dining beneath the stars, no two days here need ever be quite alike.
This landscape holds untold possibilities for those who crave adventure, from hidden coastal inlets to the quaint villages that shelter beneath those epic limestone peaks.
Sometimes though, you just want to stay close to home. And when you do, Portonovi has everything you could possibly need, from shops and galleries, to gyms, sports clubs and wellness centres. All that, plus a private white-sand beach, endless outdoor pools and fragrant landscaped gardens.
Adventure awaits you on Boka Bay, Europe’s most dramatic coastline.
Wherever you are in Portonovi, the sun-sparkled seas of Boka Bay are never far from sight. This vast nautical playground has long been a haven for sailors, who are drawn from far and wide by its tranquil waters and steady, reliable winds.
Our nearest neighbours are Kotor and Perast, two ancient towns that offer a thrilling mix of historical interest and modern intrigue. Ancient churches rub shoulders with vibrant nightclubs, while covered markets nestle in the shade of grand and ruined palazzos. Every turn here seems to hold something new, with excellent shops, boutiques and restaurants all there to be discovered.

The new Riviera lifestyle
With a balmy climate and relaxed local lifestyle, this beautiful stretch of the Adriatic coast is fast becoming known as the new Riviera.
Far from the stresses of modern life, each day in Portonovi seems to last longer somehow – filled with new connections, fresh experiences and unforgettable adventures.
Much of life is spent outdoors, soaking up the Adriatic sun in the park, by the pool or on the beach. Spend your mornings exploring the coastline by sail, before dropping anchor for a convivial lunch of fresh seafood, local meats and cheeses and artisanal Montenegrin wine. Then, as evening winds around, head home for an early evening apéro by sunset. Finally, wander into Portonovi proper for an evening of wine, dinner and flowing conversation beneath the stars.
“At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea must have happened at the coast of Montenegro.”
Montenegro’s bountiful natural riches are made to be explored, with epic hiking, cycling and skiing to be enjoyed.
This is a truly year-round destination, with each season offering something different.
In spring and autumn, locals flock to Durmitor National Park to hike the trails and spot eagles, chamois and more. Summers are for sailing along the Adriatic coast, swimming in the sea and enjoying seafood hauled fresh from the waters. Winter, meanwhile, sees Durmitor transform into a thriving ski resort, with top-tier bars, restaurants and endless miles of pristine piste to explore.

Sunset views from the two islands that sit just offshore – St. George and Our Lady of The Rocks – are unmissable.

Dermitor National Park
Carved by glaciers and shaped by underground streams, Durmitor National Park is a dazzling, dizzying natural playground.
