Wild and rugged, with national parks that feel like Europe’s final frontier and some exceptional beaches along the Adriatic, Montenegro offers sand, scenery and luxury. For those looking to splash, Aman has had a destination property in Sveti Stefan—a small fishing village turned epic luxury retreat—in the country for the past decade, while a flurry of new openings from chains like Melia and Iberostar are putting the small Balkan country on the map.
