Montenegro, meaning “Black Mountain”, is a small country in the Southwest Balkans bordering the Adriatic Sea. It is best known for its medieval towns and villages and its beautiful coastline stretching for almost 300 kilometres, scattered with 117 beaches. Yet an ironically lesser known fact is, that 90% of Montenegro is, in fact, mountains, and truly spectacular ones at that: majestic rugged mountains, mostly covered in thick forest where wild brown bears, wolves and red deer still roam. Montenegro borders Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania. Its capital and largest city is Podgorica.

The town of Herceg Novi and our hotel:

Founded in 1382 as a fortress and situated at the bottom of the highest mountain in the Dinaric Alps, Mount Orjen, Herceg Novi has over the centuries been ruled by the Ottoman Empire, Spain and Venice, as well as more recently by Russia, France and Austria. The town of Herceg Novi is situated between Mountain Orjen (1,895 m) and one of the most beautiful bays in the world – the Bay of Kotor. The old town with its pretty winding cobbled streets and the famous clock tower and the monastery of Salvina on a hillside outside the city centre are an absolute must-see for visitors to the area.

Our hotel is a short boat trip away from Herceg Novi, at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor. It enjoys a prime location along a quiet sandy beach, surrounded by lush, green forests and mountains on one side and the crystal-clear blue sea on the other.

Please read below some holiday reviews from our first solo holiday in Montenegro:

"I had a wonderful week in Montenegro. Having been on SPOH vacations in the past with my young son (now 19 years old), I knew I would be in good hands for my first solo holiday with this company. I would highly recommend trying one of the solo holidays, in fact I can't wait to book the next one!
Montenegro didn't disappoint. From the wonderful hotel, to it's amazing location on the Bay of Kotor, from the enjoyable excursions organised by our guide, to just meeting up with the group each day for mealtimes or just chilling with them by the pool. You can be as involved with the group as much as you like or take a little time to do your own thing.

- Donna - solo holiday Montenegro, October 2023
"As always, the trip was expertly arranged with very clear and timely communications. Sandra joined our group while we were away and took very good care of us whilst also joining in the fun. The location was just stunning, the hotel was great and the company was excellent."
- Angela - solo holiday Montenegro, October 2023
"I was a worried about being with a group of strangers on a beach but the style of management seemed to bring out the best in everyone. Exceptional."
