Senso di Cattaro
- Dobrota, Kotor, Montenegro
Senso di Cattaro is located on the waterfront of Boka Kotorska Bay, in a sleepy village named Dobrota in Montenegro. Translated into English, Dobrota means goodness and this is exactly the feeling that envelopes every person who arrives here. Natural beauty of this unique bay, dramatic backdrop of mountains, unpolluted air and healthy produce available in Montenegro creates an ideal setting for any retreat. An extraordinary combination of sea and mountain air is highly beneficial for respiratory system. Peaceful atmosphere of the venue and serenity of the bay are perfect for deep relaxation and meditation.
The building originally belonged to a captain's family and was built in the early 18th Century from local stone respecting natural land structure. In our time it was repurposed into a boutique property, furnished with antiques and using materials and furniture from local sources as much as possible. Sustainability of this place is embedded from the very beginning of its construction. Sea jetties serving the building were built in a traditional way, without altering local coast line, which is important factor in preserving sea life of the bay.
This heritage property is just 15km from Tivat International Airport and is easily accessible from other airports. It is within easy walking distance to the old town of Kotor, UNESCO World Heritage site, thus conveniently located for exploring this beautiful region with a rich history.
There are 10 unique guest rooms. Every room is unique in its own way, individually furnished with antique pieces in style of local interiors. With exposed stone walls and magnificent views over the bay, rooms are filled with spirit and charm, giving you a chance to absorb the distinctive atmosphere of this area and truly relax. The rooms are used for individuals or couples who intend to use the facilities at Senso di Cattaro for different programmes. This property also features restaurant, an outdoor pool, bar with lounge area, sauna, mini fitness centre, and wellness spa. Long seafront is ideal for walking, jogging, bicycle riding and the jetty in front is perfect for any activity from yoga practise and meditating to obvious swimming and sunbathing.
Senso di Cattaro is ideal to hire for group retreats, private gatherings, group workshops and events.
It is a great base for groups and retreat organizers, where they will find an excellent venue with many facilities, supporting a retreat from start to finish.

Senso di Cattaro is a retreat based at Hotel Palazzo Radomiri located in the breath-taking setting of Kotor, Montegro. The hotel and it’s facilities are every bit as beautiful and luxurious as they look on the website… and more. My apartment was beautiful with awe inspiring views across the bay in Kotor and the juices were amazing made from fresh organic local produce with delicious flavours. However, what you cannot see from any literature is the delightful peaceful and nurturing atmosphere of the place which is due to the approach of the hotel owners. Anna is highly knowledgeable in many ways including her experience in yoga and nutrition. This does not stop her approach from being relaxed and respectful and she tailors the experience to your needs. In my case it was totally relaxation and rejuvenation and this is exactly what I got. Anna gave the perfect balance of being a genuinely welcoming and warm hostess while also giving me the space and freedom I required meaning I enjoyed every minute of my break. I will never forget my stay at Senso di Cattaro, the unique experience has been life changing for me in such a positive way. Thank you Anna for everything.

Really happy to have gone through this yoga detox retreat in Montenegro! I have founded it by chance, traveling through Europe we have booked the hotel and at a time of our visit there the retreat was going on, so I have joined on a whim and very happy to have done so. It was my first ever detox retreat. It was little bit difficult first 3 days, but after it felt like I can go on like this forever! It is located in the most beautiful bay of Kotor, so you are surrounded with incredible views all the time. Even yoga classes were done by the sea looking onto the bay in the morning. Classes were adapted to each person doing the retreat, so even someone like me who has never practiced it could feel no intimidation. I had 4 freshly made juices every day and in the evening a vegetable broth. Everything was made just before the meal time. The retreat is new and enthusiastic staff, especially Anna were very attentive and happy to help along the path. The whole experience was actually the feeling of happiness! I came back full of positive energy and half a stone less!

This was my first time to visit this kind of retreat. As soon as I have arrived in front of the gate of the retreat, seeing where I am going to be for the next week, I immediately felt calm! The waterfront location is simply stunning, in a quiet village near a picturesque old town of Kotor. Anna and her team were amazing from the day one, they took care of every detail of my stay and I just didn't have to think about anything else, but myself, my wellbeing and my health. I was even given some body products - 100% natural body lotions and soaps without a trace of preservatives so my cleansing would be on all levels! The detox plan was simple, my all day was organised so all I had to do is to remember to look into my schedule. Even if I did forget something, there was always someone to kindly remind me that it is time for my massage or a yummy smoothie. I was worried that juicing will drain me, but I felt good all the way and it seemed like I am on a holiday. Overall, the support, the food and the setting are perfect and the whole attitude was exactly in tune with my feelings at that moment.

I came to Senso with the intention to do yoga and to cleanse a little after a busy time at work. But I've got so much more than that. This place has a special energy, combination of sea water and surrounding mountains is truly relaxing! It is more like a home away from home than a hotel, my room had an incredible view of the bay, the juices I had were delicious and all the employees very attentive and warm. I am more of a pilates girl, but I have enjoyed practicing yoga, I might try it more now at home. I had yoga and meditation by the sea every day, and just this was worth coming to this beautiful place. Everything I needed was so conveniently around, massages were excellent and swimming so relaxing, I have even tried stand up paddling. After just a few days I felt renewed and full of energy! I am recommending this secret place to all my friends now!
I choose to use this day as my moving meditation. So it is. Wisdom Ink
