Standing as tall as the fjords that outline the landscape of this majestic hotel’s backdrop, One&Only Portonovi is a prized jewel on the Adriatic coast. Placed at the entrance of Boka Bay, Europe’s new fashionable riviera, this hotel is the epitome of a luxury Montenegro holiday.

The first – of many – European resorts for One&Only, it certainly has set the bar very high. Expect unobstructed sea views, delicious cuisine that caters to every taste and mood, alongside an extraordinary wellness offering that’ll have you departing this epic holiday horizontal… and no, we do not mean on lie-flat seats, although that can also be arranged through our VIP luxury travel advisors or even via private jet charter.

Before you book this amazing hotel, here’s everything you need to know before you go, broken down into bitesize chunks to help you relish every single detail.

1. One&Only Portonovi is surrounded by 117 blush-coloured beaches

The 300km Montenegrin coastline is blessed with an army of beaches, and this resort is in a great spot for you to easily discover a great proportion of them. The dedicated concierge team can help organise your day escapes, too.

2. It’s located within a Unesco World Heritage Site

Boka Bay was awarded this coveted title in 1979.

Our expertise, worldwide connections, and the way we do things with a relentless drive means whatever your travels needs are, we can make it happen for you whenever, however, wherever and every time.

3. It’s open year-round

Yup, not just for the summer season. Instead, you can enjoy One&Only’s unparalleled hospitality year-round.

4. The resort has fantastic transport links

Private transfers take 50-minutes from Tivat Airport. Helicopter transfers are also available.

5. One&Only Portonovi is just one hour’s drive from Croatia

It’s easily accessible from Dubrovnik airport which is served by a range of airlines and can also handle private jets.

6. Plus, you can visit via yacht

The resort boasts a private jetty and is nearby 238-berth D-Marin Portonovi Marina which offers yachts of all sizes direct access. Montenegro has long held the coveted status of a super-yacht drop-off point, and now Boka Bay is included in the route thanks to this sublime hotel.

7. It’s family friendly

All ages are not only welcome here, but totally looked after, from the teeniest guests through to the wiser traveller.

8. There’s a dedicated kids’ club

Just like its sister One&Only resorts, there’s a KidsOnly club that offers a schedule of activities for those aged between 4 and 11. Think stick raft building, recycled fashion shows, movie nights, scavenger hunts and more. 

9. And a teen’s club

One Tribe provides teenagers with table football, foosball and game consoles.

10. The kids’ club is open until 9pm

From May through October, the kids’ club provides supervised play until 9pm, closing at 5pm from October to April.

11. The hotel is well equipped for babies

You can borrow a range of equipment to make your stay more comfortable such as baby baths, pottys, strollers and pushchairs, bottle warmers and sterilisers, car seats and booster seats, cots, changing mats and highchairs (in restaurants that accept young children).

12. Babysitting services are also available

Your every child-related need is met here.

13. There are 10 private homes within the resort

Choose between three and four bedrooms, all perched directly on the waterfront.

14. The collection of rooms, suites and villas are designed to evoke ultimate relaxation

All the rooms have been designed to bring the stunning views in with floor-to-ceiling windows framed by luxurious soft furnishings. 

15. There are 113 room, suites and villas to choose from

Including ones specifically designed for families

16. Choose between four restaurants and bars

The dining options span authentic Montenegrin flavours, delicious Mediterranean cuisine and Japanese light bites.

17. Experience Italian cuisine from a Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli

Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli offers home-comfort food sprinkled with creative flare. Choose between fresh dishes at the pasta counter, artisan pizzas from the wood-fire oven and catch of the day from the local waters. Oh, and don’t forget the delicious gelato for dessert.

18. Taste the very best of Montenegrin flavours

La Veranda boasts the finest steaks with views to match. Its laidback atmosphere offers both buffet and á la carte dining.

19. There’s also a waterfront dining destination

Tapasake fuses panoramic views of the Adriatic with contemporary Japanese-Peruvian style dishes.

20. The hotel can also organise exclusive dining experiences

If you can dream it, One&Only Portonovi can make it happen. Including bespoke menus, personalised table dressings and scenic settings, it’s the perfect way to mark a milestone.

21. The resort has an exclusive global partnership with a leading wellness brand

One&Only Portonovi has a cutting-edge wellness facility Chenot Espace. Alongside a treatment menu to harmonise your body both inside and out, there’s also an indoor pool, steam room, sauna, relaxation pavilion and signature Chenot herbal tea complimentary to guests.

22. One&Only Portonovi is the first European resort for the luxury hotel group

Montenegro is the first pin in One&Only’s European map… but it certainly isn’t the last. It has been followed by two epic openings in Greece – One&Only Kéa Island and One&Only Aesthesis – with more exciting announcements to follow.
