ONE&ONLY PORTONOVI’S WINTER WONDERLAND AWAITS
Luxury winter adventures on the Adriatic Riviera
Located at the entrance of Boka Bay, a fjord-like idyll at the edge of the Adriatic Sea, One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro is the jewel of Europe’s fashionable new Riviera. Surrounded by secluded beaches, picturesque islands and medieval towns, a stay at One&Only Portonovi offers water-front relaxation, world-class dining, and pioneering wellness.
With the changing of the seasons, One&Only Portonovi transforms into a winter wonderland, with cosy fire in every room, echoing the Montenegrin tradition of gathering around the fireplace. There is also a plethora of luxurious activities tailored for the cooler months on offer, from health and well-being journeys to culinary adventures and expeditions to the wonders that surround the resort.
WINTER WELLNESS EXPERIENCE
For those keen to dedicate their sojourn to a serious health overhaul, One&Only Portonovi is one of the most comprehensive wellness destinations in Europe. In its quest to elevate the health and fitness experience, One&Only has collaborated with global wellness pioneer Chenot to create the new Chenot Espace at One&Only Portonovi; 4,000 metre² space offering guests an intensive and transformative journey of detoxing and resetting the body, based on the renowned Chenot Method®.
Chenot Espace includes 27 single treatment rooms plus an exclusive couples treatment room with jacuzzi. Hydrotherapy and Cryotherapy treatment facilities are also available, with two relaxation areas, steam room, sauna and an indoor pool. 15 guest rooms and 3 suites are situated just above the Spa, offering privacy and easy accessibility for guests staying for longer treatments. Additional facilities include an Oriental Hammam, mani-pedi treatments by Chenot, hair salon, and a Barber&Blade barbershop.
The pillar programme of Henri Chenot, the Advanced Detox, is comprised of specialised medical consultations, advanced diagnostic tests, a plant-based nutritional plan, and targeted therapeutic treatments, with the aim of inducing deep purification and detoxification of the body, scientifically designed to enhance guests’ vitality and optimum health. The Fundamental Detox is a strategic follow-up programme for those who have already undergone the Advanced Detox within the last six months and would like to maintain the effect. Both are six-day programmes.
During the winter months, guests will also be able to take part in a special four-day Chenot De-Stress & Recharge programme, which aims to stimulate the body to recover and restore its vitality and energy levels. Specialised medical professionals evaluate the individual’s needs and create a plan of effective, stress-inducing and energy enhancing treatments. For those who prefer a shorter programme, guests can choose from an extensive menu of treatments, each incorporating the Chenot Method®.
Chenot Espace at One&Only Portonovi allows guests to tailor their experience according to duration and programme. Guests may either experience alone or join with their travel partner, partaking in exercise regimes and Chenot Diet specially curated by the Chenot nutritionist is entirely at each person’s discretion. For guests less inclined to join a daily programme, there is a number of indulgent aesthetic experiences to choose from, such as the Chenot Detox Body Massage or Chenot Purifying Detox Facial Treatment.
With its shimmering waters, dramatic mountain scape and a meandering coastline, Montenegro is the perfect vantage point to discover the winter charms of the Adriatic, exploring enchanting towns with UNESCO credentials, sampling traditional cuisine or touring the dazzling city of Dubrovnik. The expert team at One&Only Portonovi has curated a magnificent collection of winter activities for the curious traveller: A Perast and Kotor Old Town by Car tour leads to the discovery of the picturesque parts of the Bay of Kotor and the surrounding Mediterranean Fjord, Skadar Lake with Wine Tasting will take guests to the most beautiful and authentic national parks in Montenegro, whilst Magnificent Dubrovnik will travel through some of the most beautiful towns on the Eastern Adriatic Coast, before exploring the Old Town of Dubrovnik.

For those who prefer to relax and indulge during the cooler months, One&Only Portonovi is a gastronomic haven, offering distinctive, world-class culinary experiences and flavours of the Adriatic. La Veranda champions locally sourced ingredients and Montenegrin-inspired cooking styles, with an open kitchen and live cooking stations. Located in the Lobby, the cosy Caminetti Bar welcomes guests with an inviting atmosphere next to a variety of fireplaces, with expansive views over the terrace, gardens and sea, accompanied by an equally expansive beverage list. Here, guests can enjoy specially crafted mulled wine and a decadent selection of high tea. Overseeing the resort’s culinary offering is award winning Executive Chef Chris Mare, a South African who built his reputation at the iconic One&Only Cape Town, and who champions the region’s local producers and speciality farmers, showcasing the flavours and culture of Montenegro and the Mediterranean. In the coming months, guests will have the opportunity to take part in culinary ventures from cooking classes and wine tastings in La Veranda, Rakija tastings in Caminetti and an in-house beer festival.
