Venue HighlightsSenso 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.
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.
