The first One&Only luxury property in Europe is due to open next spring in Montenegro.

The One&Only Portonovi on the Adriatic coast will have 113 rooms, suites and villas.

The property in Herceg Novi will be 50 minutes from Tivat airport, overlooking the Bay of Kotor.

The resort, set to open on March 21 adjacent to a 238-berth super yacht marina and helipad, features a restaurant overseen by Italian celebrity chef Giorgio Locatelli.

Brett Armitage, chief commercial officer at parent group Kerzner International said: “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.

“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.”
