Sveti Stefan was a legendary hotel in the 1960s, a haunt of Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Aman has brought it up to date with its minimalistic design, adding three swimming pools and a vast and spectacular spa. Built on a tiny island, attached to the mainland by its own causeway, the hotel was once home to a community of fishermen. Only their stone houses, now turned into 50 rooms, remain, together with four Lilliputian churches, the village square and a labyrinth of flowery lanes.
