The tiny resort of Sveti Stefan offers glamour and luxury to travellers

Discover one of the best-kept secrets in Europe! Sveti Stefan is a very small, glamorous resort located in the heart of Montenegro on the lovely Adriatic Coast. It’s hot because it’s an exclusive escape for those in the know. Naturally, as an Aman resort, it’s luxurious, but this property is oh-so-beautiful as well.

Breathtaking views from the luxurious Sveti Stefan resort

It is comprised of two parts — the fifteenth-century fortress of Sveti Stefan Island contains 50 guest rooms, suites and cottages, while the former seaside estate of Villa Miločer across the bay on the mainland offers just eight suites and a guest list that once included Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren, and now YOU!

You can also enjoy a trip to the vineyards of the Tici, where you will experience rolling countrysides and learn about family traditions surrounding the Moric olive.


Town square in the historic city of Warsaw, Poland

Take in Krakow, where you can explore history museums, enjoy new gourmet dining experiences. One of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, the city has now become an open air museum, and is still very much a thriving town with great restaurants, upscale bars, and stylish hotels. You can even learn to make your own pierogi!

Krakow, Poland

In Warsaw, which resembles a smaller Prague, explore the history of the city’s once-large Jewish population and learn about the rich history. The capital and largest Polish city, Warsaw is situated on the Vistula River and known as a city of palaces.
