New York – Amanresorts has announced a December 15, 2008 opening of Villa Miločer, phase one of the Aman Sveti Stefan resort on Montenegro’s dramatic coastline. Once a popular playground for celebrities from the film and fashion worlds, the tiny islet of Sveti Stefan is still one of the Adriatic’s most iconic images.
In addition to Villa Miločer, a summer residence of Queen Marija Karadjordjevic and later of Yugoslavia leader Josip Tito, Aman Sveti Stefan includes the renaissance of the 15th century island village of Sveti Stefan that is scheduled to open in August 2009. When completed, Aman Sveti Stefan will feature Villa Miločer’s six spacious suites, two one-bedroom Queen Marija Suites on the villa’s grounds and 47 guest rooms and suites on the island of Sveti Stefan.
“I have always been attracted to the natural beauty and elegant coastline of Montenegro,” says Adrian Zecha, founder of Amanresorts. “It is an honor to be able to breathe new life into a storied property such as Sveti Stefan, and we look forward to welcoming guests soon to this truly extraordinary resort.”
