Experience the resort
A private retreat on the shores of the azure Adriatic.
Portonovi is an idyllic, riviera-style village, blessed with a secluded location on tranquil Boka Bay. With golden sands, sparkling pools and a select choice of restaurants, cafés, bars and boutiques, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a vacation rich in experience – for a weekend, a week, or perhaps even longer.
A natural haven
Boka Bay is one of Europe’s most spectacular natural harbours, forged at the meeting of mighty mountains and tranquil seas.
Part-canyon, part-fjord, its star-shaped arms stretch as far as the eye can see – to Herceg Novi, Risan and Tivat – creating a nautical playground for yachts of all sizes. With calm emerald waters and gentle winds, it’s a dream location for sailors of every ability.
Even on land, this untouched coastline yields countless new experiences. Every turn here seems to reveal something new, from perfectly preserved medieval towns and picturesque fishing villages to the nearby Unesco World Heritage sites of Kotor and Perast.
Find your hideaway
Choose from a range of luxurious modern apartments and enjoy the Portonovi lifestyle for yourself. There’s a residence here to suit every need, from solo travellers to families and groups of friends, with properties available to sleep up to eight people.
Expect modern designs that work to elevate their surroundings, from panoramic sea views to flower-filled Mediterranean courtyards. Across the range of layouts available, all feature natural materials, a bold stylistic palette and an elegant mix of Montenegrin, Mediterranean and Venetian architectural influences.
All properties benefit from signature 24-hour concierge service and in-residence dining, as well as a dedicated customer service team.
Sip, savour and explore
Portonovi is more than a resort. It’s a living, breathing village, filled with leafy open spaces in which to meet and socialise, as well as boutiques and bars, gyms, galleries and fine-dining experiences.
Lunches here are best-enjoyed al fresco, with generous plates of pljevaljski cheese, olives, cured meats and fish caught fresh from the bay.
As evening rolls in, join the groups that gather along the waterfront to drink in the sunset with a glass of Montenegrin wine. Then head to Sabia, Perla or one of the many other restaurants for a feast of Mediterranean and Adriatic-inspired dining.
Portonovi’s boutiques, galleries and ateliers place the same emphasis on local flavours. Expect the finest work from Montenegrin designers, alongside international names from the world of fashion, art and design.
Explore and Discover
Durmitor National Park
Carved by glaciers and shaped by underground streams, Durmitor National Park is a dazzling, dizzying natural playground. Its highest peak, the 2,500m Bobotov Kuk, offers widescreen vistas, and there are a range of other trails that suit all hiking abilities. In winter, the area reinvents itself as a ski resort.
Part of a UNESCO World Heritage site and a miniature Venice on the shores of the Adriatic. Perast may be tiny (it’s home to just under 300 residents) but its quaint streets hold no shortage of history, with 16 churches and almost 20 palaces to explore. Sunset views from the two islands that sit just offshore – St. George and Our Lady of The Rocks – are unmissable.
The largest town in the area and another UNESCO World Heritage site, Kotor is a city of contrasts. History is everywhere here, from the 16th century cathedral and grand palazzos to the ancient city walls. Yet modern Kotor also boasts a thrilling nightlife and cultural scene, with buzzing restaurants, bars and clubs, as well as luxury shopping and galleries all to be enjoyed.
