“Chic and boutique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Small and beautiful best describe this 10 room hotel just outside Kotor.5 star and stylish but at the same time friendly and understated.The back of the hotel has its own private sun terrace with direct access to swimming in the crystal clear Adriatic Sea.Absolutely stunning views of the mountains surrounding the bay - you could be in the Italian lakes.Worth taking small boat trip over to Lady of the Rocks -5Euros.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view - you will not be disappointed.

The hotel is very boutique and well appointed and it stands out from the area which is quite rustic!
There is a lovely view of the bay. We dined in the hotel because it was a bit cold to sit by the water.

The food was very good but overpriced . The steak was described with baked potatoes but it came with cooked frozen chips which, although neatly arranged, let the meal down.
The soufflé and strawberries were fabulous.

We enjoyed the local red dessert wine with the puddings

The wine with the dinner was corked and there was such an inquisition by the staff that could have been better handled- then they said it was the last bottle.

Good but a few details spoiled it from being excellent.

We had the most amazing and relaxing stay!Hotel rooms are gorgeous and staff warm and friendly.It feels like an oasis from the bustle of cruise ship crowds in Kotor.
Direct access to swimming from their beach.
Had a terrific meal in a perfect setting on the edge of the bay....thank you Gyorgi!

Room Tip: Loved the India Suite

The Hotel is located a 5km drive from Kotor directly on the water. We had a superior room with sea view that was nicely decorated with a lovely balcony. The breakfast was fantastic with various choices for every taste, but everything homemade out of local fresh products! And we came across that level of quality only here during our trip to Montenegro.
The service quality and attention of staff was great as well.
There is also a "private" beach with a small area to relax and enjoy the sun. An outdoor jacuzzi with direct view on the bay of Kotor is also one of the hotel highlights. For rainy days the hotel offers a spa area. However the jacuzzi there was half broken and water temperature not optimal. The sauna unfortunately could not be heaten up above 50deg. Celsius, without having the front door opening up. The Turkish bath was at the right temperature, but very dark.
But overall we definitely recommend this hotel with a very friendly staff with attention to detail and a delightful breakfast!

stayed for one night and really enjoyed it!! the rooms with view to Kotor bay are incredible! Breakfast is good, service very good. The swimming pool (very small) is stacked between 2 buildings which are hiding the sun. Baby cot is also available for a family with baby.

The breakfast scenery, in the restaurant-cafe downstairs, is amazing. you almost float on the water.

the price of the room is expensive though. In May, the standard room with no view cost was 108 euros and the sea view room goes up to 135 euros!

Room Tip: sea view room

Delightful sitting right on the waters edge, classy furniture, menu and although we didn't actually stay (just visited the bar and restaurant) it is stunning. Next time this is where I'm staying ! Nice pasta, and good fish menu. View from outside bar is to die for, overlooking the bay of Kotor. Magical.

We stayed here for a few days as part of our holiday. The hotel is really gorgeous. The rooms are amazing, the views are incredible & it is a touch of chilled out luxury. The prices reflect this though! Breakfast was great too & there are some lovely restaurants near by. The only downside for us was that parts of Kotor are really run-down, abandoned & the people in the area were far from friendly. We had a run in with a very drunk Russian man who hit into our car on day 1, then got out of his jeep & tried to intimidate us, which put a dampener on things!! So I suppose this hotel felt like an oasis of calm & luxury with a potential storm waiting for you outside!
