One&Only’s hotly anticipated One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro will begin to welcome guests from 1 July 2020.  The ultra-luxury resort will be One&Only’s first in Europe and is set to become the most fashionable destination on the Adriatic.  This ultimate resort will include Chenot Espace – a first-of-its-kind wellness concept for guests looking to lead a more active, healthy and balanced life, as well as Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli – one of the finest Italian chefs in the world.

 

One&Only Portonovi sits at the entrance of the wild and beautiful Boka Bay, a sheltered idyll on Montenegro’s Adriatic coast, surrounded by spectacular mountains. The nautical playground is adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor and a 238-berth superyacht marina and helipad. Portonovi 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.  A private sandy beach will rival the finest of the Mediterranean.

 

At the centre of the resort is 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 with a focus on wellness from Giorgio Locatelli at Sabia, Asian fusion dining at Tapasake and farm-to-table fresh Montenegrin cuisine. Tapasake Club will be 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 opening of One&Only Portonovi is a milestone in our history, as we continue to expand our ultra-luxury portfolio into new destinations around the world. We are thrilled to introduce the One&Only experience to Europe, in response to demand from our loyal guests,” commented Brett Armitage, Chief Commercial Officer, Kerzner International. “One&Only Portonovi will set the precedent for a new level of luxury in the region, with unrivalled service, spectacular accommodation and incredible guest experiences, set between enchanting mountains and the beautiful Adriatic coastline. We are particularly excited about our exclusive partnership with Henri Chenot, which will revolutionise the resort wellbeing experience, offering 360-degree wellness programmes for our guests. And for those looking to be part of the One&Only lifestyle, we are thrilled to introduce Private Homes for guests who wish to make this stylish resort their home.”
