Mamula Island, Herceg Novi, Montenegro

Top 10 – Mamula Island

Nestled at the entrance of Montenegro’s Bay of Kotor, Mamula Island is a 5-star boutique hotel reconstructed from a 19th-century Austro-Hungarian fortress. ⁠Interiors by WeStudio reflect the islet’s unique identity and draw upon ancient Roman and Ottoman influences, minimalist mid-century style and abstract fine art of the Balkans. Through organic materials and an earthy colour palette, the interiors echo the beauty of the surrounding nature, while cultural references of stripped-back local stone, natural red wall pigment and organic textiles create a modern reinterpretation of a retreat.
