Review: Hotel Palazzo Radomiri Montenegro: An exclusive retreat

Review of Hotel Palazzo Radomiri Montenegro in Kotor Bay.

Montenegro was my last stop on my Balkan round trip, and I was excited to indulge in nature and mountainous views before heading back to Denmark.

I based myself in the historic Bay of Kotor and found the perfect place for a bit of recreation and relaxation: a sea captain’s mansion that had been transformed into a boutique hotel.

By the water’s edge in Kotor Bay, the restored Palazzo Radomiri Hotel offered the perfect getaway with its sweeping views of the astonishing fjord.

I was welcomed by the owner Anna upon my arrival and showed around the hotel, whose history dates back more than 300 years.

Hotel Palazzo Radomiri Montenegro

Palazzo Radomiri Montenegro, which was built in the 18th century for a wealthy sea captain, now houses 10 spacious rooms with bare-brick walls and elegant, antique-style furniture.

To the front is a cobbled terrace and a neat pier lined with loungers.

Apart from the front structure, the hotel has a restaurant, gym, and outdoor swimming pool.

My suite

My suite was nothing short of amazing.

It had a spacious hallway, living room, bedroom, kitchen, and a dual bathroom; one with toilet and the other with tub, washer, and dryer.

The living room had a cushy sofa with chaise longue positioned invitingly in front of the flat screen and DVD player – perfect for watching a romantic movie or an episode of Dexter, which admittedly is more my style.

The sizeable bedroom featured an antique bed with tulle canopy, the kind that reminds you of a princess bed from a fairy tale.

Morning yoga at Palazzo Radomiri

Aside from its prime location and historic compound, hotel Palazzo Radomiri Kotor offers ultimate recreation through yoga and detox programmes.

Each morning, an hour-long yoga session takes place on the private jetty with the bay as a backdrop.

The hotel also offers a selection of programs, including a yoga cleansing, juicing detox, Ayurveda diet, and one combining healthy Mediterranean meals with exercise.

As a yoga practitioner, I loved the idea of doing yoga in such beautiful and inspiring surroundings. I didn’t try any of the treatments, but it would have been the ideal place for it if I’d had the time.

A welcoming and historic hotel

What I liked most about the family-owned hotel was that despite its feeling of luxury, I felt much at home.

The owner and her mom made me feel personally welcome. The reception and wait staff were friendly, but they pretty much kept to themselves and didn’t small-talk. I didn’t mind, because I generally like to be left alone unless I need something.

All in all, I had a great stay at the hotel, and I enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. It’s perfect for couples and solo travelers, who want to treat themselves to an exquisite stay with a romantic ambiance, but not for backpackers on a tight budget.

Palazzo Radomiri Hotel Montenegro is the best of both worlds – full of historic Montenegrin character and luxurious amenities.

It has a home-like atmosphere and provides a great environment for a relaxing getaway. When you add the gorgeous surroundings and serene bay, it can’t be beat.

I would absolutely return.
