Rooms & Suites

The choice of luxurious accommodations could hardly be greater. Spread over an area of 24 hectares, 113 rooms and suites are located in stylish villas, modelled after old Venetian palaces. With their floor-to-ceiling windows, they offer breathtaking views of the fjord-like landscape of the Montenegrin bay. Even more exclusive are the two private villas, which have a private garden including a private pool. A team of butlers and cooks takes care of the guests around the clock.

At 55 square meters, however, even the smallest rooms - a successful combination of the living room and bedroom - offer an unusually large amount of space. In addition, there are balconies and terraces on the first floor, where elegant garden furniture invites you to linger. Chic design distinguishes the interior of all rooms. The colour scheme picks up the colour of the sea, the sky and the charming terracotta roofs of the region - a wonderfully calming effect. The two-sided fireplace, from which atmospheric flickering bathes the bedroom and bathroom area in a romantic light, provides a very special flair.

If you like, you can mix your favourite drink from the fine spirits in the house bar and the utensils provided for preparing cocktails. All rooms are decorated with great attention to detail with high-quality materials and stylish art: Glazed ceramic horses, hand-blown vases and opulent table books delight the eye and the mind. The bathrooms are also incredible, with separate shower and toilet areas as well as a freestanding bathtub covered with seating elements during the day. Here one can make oneself comfortable and watch the passing ships on the horizon.

AMBIENCE

In the eventful history of the Bay of Kotor, the Venetian played a decisive role. That the hotel complex has been inspired by this heyday is already evident from the outside. The One&Only presents itself as a stately palace by the sea. The visitor's breath is taken away as soon as he enters the lobby - the magnificent view extends over the extensive park with its pools to the shimmering blue waters of the bay. To the left and right are curtains with fine handmade mimosa embroidery - a tribute to the artisan tradition of Herceg Novi, the municipality in which the hotel is located. The warm welcome includes comfortable seating as well as a flickering fire - after all, the fireplace has special symbolic power in Montenegro: it is the central element in the stone houses, where people gather to share warmth, stories and food.

Beautiful elements are also the shiny tapestries, a reminder of the 2,000-year-old Risan mosaics. And if you look closely, you will discover a labyrinth on the marble floor, the original of which can be admired in Saint Tryphon Cathedral in Kotor.

gastronomy,

Tapasake

Japanese-Peruvian cuisine is offered by the restaurant Tapasake. A large, open show kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows, and furnishings with many warm kinds of wood and shapely ceiling lights invite you to feel good while enjoying the best cuisine. The menu features light, flavorful sushi and sashimi creations to ceviche and carpaccio. From the charcoal grill, delicious fish and meat specialities with salads or vegetable tempura are prepared. This is accompanied by selected types of sake from Japan and first-class international wines. Surprisingly good: top wines from the region.

Sabia

The Sabia offers fine Italian cuisine. The ingredients come fresh and, wherever possible, from the region. Due to its location on the beach you'll get that Riviera-feeling. Especially atmospheric are the evenings with a magnificent sunset.

Tip from the editorial office

There are two tips this time: firstly, you should definitely let sommelière Rafaela Pons introduce you to the world of regional wines. She has some truly sensational wines in store. And then you must not miss the excursion with the hotel's own motorboat through the Bay of Kotor. The visit to the church island of Mary of the Rock and the old town of Kotor offer unforgettable impressions.
