Located at the entrance of Boka Bay, a fjord-like idyll on Montenegro’s Adriatic Coast, One&Only Portonovi will open in March 2021, a year-round haven of Europe’s most fashionable new riviera. Surrounded by dramatic coastline and spectacular mountains, guests can explore a nautical playground, discover fascinating Unesco World Heritage sites or escape to the resort’s sparkling pools and private sandy beach that rivals the finest in the Mediterranean.
The first One&Only resort in Europe, this ultra-luxury retreat is home to Chenot Espace, offering pioneering treatments scientifically designed to enhance guests’ vitality and optimum health. The culinary experience, led by executive chef Nancy Kinchela, includes refined Italian dishes from one of the world’s best Italian chefs at Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli, Asian fusion dining at Tapasake and farm-to-table fresh Montenegrin cuisine. Tapasake Club is the energetic soul of the resort, where guests can lounge by the pool and experience the atmosphere building during the day, culminating in performances by legendary DJs.
The resort is designed on an impressive scale to reflect the architectural style of the old Venetian palaces of the region including grand facades, majestic colonnades, signature red terracotta roofs, gardens and an extraordinary array of indoor and outdoor pools. One&Only Portonovi’s elegant guest rooms, suites and villas are positioned for guests to enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding marina, bay and mountains, with various interconnecting options and clusters for groups and families seeking flexible space. The spacious 113 guest rooms feature sleek, modern fireplaces for cooler nights, expansive bathrooms the same size as the bedrooms with space to recline and lounge, as well as large floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces for guests to relax against the backdrop of the mountain and bay views.
In terms of dining, One&Only Portonovi offers Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli, the Michelin-star chef’s first restaurant in the region; Tapasake Club, serving contemporary pan-Asian, tapas-style fusion cuisine; La Veranda, championing locally sourced ingredients and Montenegrin-inspired cooking styles; Caminetti Bar in the lobby; and bespoke in-room dining experiences.
Chenot Espace at One&Only Portonovi enables guests to understand what is aging their body and how to set new pathways to positively improve performance and wellbeing, resulting in increased vitality. Following an initial stage of consultation and advanced diagnostic tests by medical professionals, guests receive a bespoke programme involving nutritional consultations, detox menus, fitness schedules, targeted spa treatments, stress relieving activities and more.
One&Only Portonovi is a nautical playground waiting to be discovered. Guests can cruise the dramatic Adriatic coastline by yacht or speedboat, or learn to dive or sail through the clear, calm waters. World heritage sites, abandoned fortresses and hidden beaches can all be explored, such as the impeccably preserved medieval towns of Perast and Kotor, the fascinating islands of Our Lady of the Rocks and unspoilt National Parks, rich with local culture and folklore. Montenegro’s diverse landscape is compact and easily accessible, and guests can enjoy a variety of activities and scenery within just one day.
