Located on a secluded rocky cove, just south of Budva near Sveti Stefan, the majority of the Maestral’s 196 rooms and 18 apartments have sea views, while the various dining options also make use of the seaside setting to good effect meaning there is a constant sense of being close to the water. A wellness centre provides a tranquil setting for guests to enjoy Finnish and infrared saunas, Roman and Turkish baths and swimming pools. In-the-know expatriates have long since cottoned on to the authentic Thai massages administered by the well trained Thai staff at the resort’s Sa Wann centre and there is also a very efficient dentist in one of the treatment rooms here, should you need it. The onsite casino has 130 slot machines, roulette, blackjack and Texas Hold’em poker tables, making it a popular destination with visiting gamblers all year round, especially from Italy. Look out for the Maestral’s ongoing entertainment program as well, such as concerts, cabaret, comedy and fashion shows in high season.
