The magazine “The Luxury Travel Expert” declared the resort “One & Only” Portonovi as the most luxurious destination in Europe, where this project is among the 10 most elite resorts.
The fabulous One&Only brand was created in 2002 exclusively for the luxury resort market by Solomon Kerzner – a South African accountant and business magnate – and now features some of the highest-rated resorts in the most idyllic spots in the world, such as the Maldives, Mexico, Rwanda and Cape Town.
One&Only Portonovi is designed by famous architect Jean-Michel Gathy and his team from Denniston International Architects. Taking cues from the culture, history and geography of the destination, the resort’s dazzling architecture has been designed to incorporate the grand façades, majestic colonnades, and gabled terracotta rooftops, symbolic of Montenegrin architecture. The property is comprised of several multi-story, neoclassical pavilions, which are modeled after the historic Venetian-style palaces and mansions of the region. Throughout his design, Gathy kept three words in mind – luxury, space and privacy to ensure ultimate luxury is provided to One&Only’s guests.
Scattered throughout the property, One&Only Portonovi’s 113 residential-style rooms and suites offer a luxurious home-away-from-home experience. The resort’s main pavilions – which house the public facilities and accommodations – are surrounded by expansive lawns and lush gardens which are home to 11 swimming pools. The main pool complex is located at the private beach and comprises one large infinity pool which is divided into two interconnecting sections: a serene pool for adults and a relaxing pool for families. The resort boasts a pristine golden-sand beach, which is only accessible to guests of the resort. Food lovers are spoilt for choice at One&Only Portonovi, a must-visit culinary destination in Montenegro.
