One&Only sets opening date for first European retreat

One&Only Portonovi is positioned on beautiful Boka Bay in Montenegro's Adriatic

One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro has revealed it will open on 1 July 2020. The ultra-luxury resort will be One&Only’s first in Europe and also the maiden property to feature the Chenot Espace – a first-of-its-kind wellness concept for guests looking to lead a more active, healthy and balanced life – as well as Sabia by Giorgio Locatelli.

One&Only Portonovi sits at the entrance of the wild and beautiful Boka Bay in the Adriatic, surrounded by  mountains. The nautical playground is adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor and a 238-berth superyacht marina and helipad. Portonovi is designed on an impressive scale to reflect the architectural style of the old Venetian palaces of the region including grand façades, majestic colonnades, signature red terracotta roofs, gardens and an extraordinary array of indoor and outdoor pools.

At the centre of the resort is Chenot Espace, offering pioneering treatments scientifically designed to enhance guests’ vitality and optimum health. The culinary experience includes refined Italian dishes with a focus on wellness from Giorgio Locatelli at Sabia, Asian fusion dining at Tapasake and farm-to-table fresh Montenegrin cuisine. Tapasake Club will be the energetic soul of the resort, where guests can lounge by the pool and experience the atmosphere building during the day, culminating in performances by legendary DJs.

“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,” commented Brett Armitage, Chief Commercial Officer, Kerzner International.

All One&Only Portonovi’s elegant guest rooms, suites and villas will be positioned for guests to enjoy views of the surrounding marina, bay and mountains, with various interconnecting options and clusters for groups and families seeking flexible space. The 113 spacious guest rooms feature sleek, modern fireplaces for cooler nights, expansive bathrooms the same size as the bedrooms with space to recline and lounge, as well as large floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces for guests to relax against the backdrop of the mountain and bay views.

One&Only Portonovi’s Suite One is a one-bedroom presidential suite with a private wine cellar which guests can choose to stock with their personal selection of 268 bottles of wine from Europe and the region, an outdoor dining area seating up to twelve people with sublime views of the mountains and bay, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a separate butler entrance.

The resort will offer two secluded expansive villas; the three-bedroom Villa One (463-square-metre interior and 1,750 square metres of outdoor space) and two-bedroom Villa Two (218 square-metre interior and 930 square metres of outdoor space). Each villa is set in its own fragrant garden, with an outdoor shower and private pool, as well as a hydrotherapy pool with six massage stations and incredible sunset views over the Adriatic Sea, all paired with exceptional service from a dedicated team of butlers, chefs and valets.

The Chenot Espace will offer a transformative journey of detoxing and resetting the body based on the Chenot Method. Chenot’s pioneering approach to wellness combines the latest scientific advances with the best in Chinese and traditional medicines. Program options will include Advanced and Fundamental Detoxes (six days/seven nights) for deep purification of the body, as well as shorter options for guests looking for a blend of wellness and relaxation such as three-day Detox or Fitness Programmes, a four-day De-stress and Re-charge, and a two-day Weekend Spa Package. Guests will also be offered individual Chenot Espace treatments curated by the expert practitioners.

A selection of guest rooms and suites are located directly above the spa, offering privacy and easy access for those taking part in more intensive or longer treatment programs. Chenot Espace will include hydrotherapy and cryotherapy facilities, sauna, steam room, indoor pool and relaxation areas. In addition, the year-round destination resort will also offer an Oriental Hamman, a hair salon and the men’s grooming salon, Barber&Blade.

One&Only Portonovi is a nautical playground where guests can cruise the dramatic Adriatic coastline by yacht or speedboat, or learn to dive or sail through the clear, calm waters. The private and secluded sandy beach overlooking the bay will feature One&Only signature experiences.

Situated on the west side of Montenegro, Portonovi is an easy drive from Dubrovnik (one hour) airport.
