This month, Montenegro’s Aman Sveti Stefan, a 58-room resort on a 3-acre islet in the Adriatic Sea just east of Italy and south of Croatia, debuted an expansive new spa. The stand-alone structure on the 80-acre Villa Miločer estate—once the summer residence of Marija Karadjordjević, the queen of Yugoslavia from 1922 to 1934—is situated on the mainland portion of the property, flanked by lush green forests and overlooking the smooth pink sands of Queen’s Beach.
The new spa features four 700-square-foot treatment suites equipped with fireplaces for the winter months, as well as four private relaxation terraces, which look out onto the tranquil reflection pond and manicured gardens. Privacy-seeking guests can book one of three hydrotherapy rooms, each of which houses a sauna, a hot bath, and a cool plunge pool, or relax in the communal 80-foot-long, glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool, which extends another 26 feet outdoors between two terraces furnished with cushioned chaise longues.
The spa’s wellness treatments can be customized to suit guests’ needs and include body wraps, hot-stone massages, Thai massages, and facials—all of which use naturally derived products. Guests craving a complete body recharge can stop by the spa’s salon for manicures, pedicures, and hair styling, book a private training session in the facility’s 1,500-square-foot gym, attend classes in the Pilates studio, or slip into complimentary daily yoga classes in the on-site studio.
