Avala Resort and Villas, (Budva) Montenegro

Close to the bustling old town of Budva, Avala Resort and Villas is a sensory haven where tradition meets technology. The stunning architecture of the nearby town provides guests with a shot of culture, while the hotel spa’s pristine infinity pool and turbo solarium provide a modern approach to wellness.

Guests can choose between rooms that provide balcony views of the mountains, town or ocean, while luxurious family villas are available to those travelling in larger groups.

One of the biggest draws to the Avala is that the hotel comes complete with a golden stretch of private beach, as well as a sunbathing deck around the huge ocean-facing outdoor pool, so there’s never a shortage of sun loungers or spots to enjoy a warm afternoon swim.
