Ānanti Resort, Residences and Beach Club is set to be one of the most prestigious addresses in the Adriatic when it welcomes guests to fourteen Seaview Suites and eight private-pool Seaview Luxury Villas from Spring 2020. The only five-star resort in Montenegro with a selection of sea-facing villas, Ānanti commands uninterrupted views of the Adriatic from a secluded wooded hillside on the Budva Riviera.
Independently-owned, Ānanti is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World®, and will boast a Wellness and Renewal Spa, Panorama Café restaurant and guest-only Beach Club next spring.
The resort name is drawn from the Nepalese “Ānanda” signifying joy and “Shanti” meaning peace, and the resort adopts a holistic approach to ensuring guests are cocooned in a peaceful setting where they can share the joy of time with loved ones.
The aesthetic throughout is supreme contemporary comfort with classic stylish accents complemented by nautical accents and natural materials. Blues and golds, inspired by the Adriatic waters and sunlight, punctuate the décor.
Ānanti is situated at Rezevici on the Budva Riviera, one of the least developed parts of the Montenegrin coast. Ideally located for discovering the Bay of Kotor and Lake Skadar National Park, the resort is within convenient reach of Tivat, Podgorica and Dubrovinik airports. Connections from North America can be made via major European cities.

Privacy is paramount and our guests will find they are cosseted in contemporary comfort whilst being taken care of with Montenegrin flair.”
