Isolated and uninhabited for a long time, this small piece of land surrounded by water at the entrance to the spectacular mouths of Kotor came back to life last summer with the opening of an astonishing 32-key hotel, with a spa, three restaurants, four bars, and three outdoor swimming pools in addition to the beach. At the heart of the project is a 19th-century fortress that served as a prison during the Second World War. The walls, full of history, have been carefully restored, and natural materials have been used throughout: raw stone, aged brass, solid oak, organic fabrics, etc. The interiors are minimalist and soothing, with the rounded shape of the arch as a symbol of openness and a resolutely contemporary style.
