Sveti Stefan accommodation is arguably some of the most expensive in Montenegro. But that's not to say only people with big budgets can stay there. There's actually good, clean comfortable accommodation available for every budget.
What you pay will depend on:
Not only is the seaside hamlet of Sveti Stefan beautiful, it's also in a great location on the Budva Riviera. Budva town is known for being very busy and congested in the height of summer. So staying just out of town along the Riviera is ideal for getting more of the relaxed seaside hamlet feel on your holiday.
Sveti Stefan is the islet that's joined to the mainland by a narrow land bridge. It's covered with immaculate stone buildings, terracotta roofs and lush, green trees. It really is one of the most beautiful places in Montenegro.
The island is a beautiful hotel which means you can stay there (yay!). It's part of the Aman Resorts group and is closed off to everyone but those who can afford the €800 per night price tag.
Don't despair if this beyond your budget, there are plenty of other great places to stay in the Sveti Stefan area. And as you'll see, most offer amazing views of the iconic island.
If you're not staying on the island but are still keen to see it, find out how to get onto the island here.
Aman Sveti Stefan is hands down the nicest hotel in Montenegro and the only true five star resort here.
Built on a 15th century island hamlet, with private beaches, a luxury spa, top restaurants and staff at your beck and call, this is the ultimate place to stay in Montenegro.
