Sleek interiors, a stylish open-air terrace and an on-the-beach postcode make the Aleksandar one of the most popular hotels in Budva.

The sunbathing scene’s particularly popular. When you’re not relaxing by one of the hotel’s pools, there’s a sandy beach that’s less than a minute’s walk away.

The hotel’s decor is glossy and contemporary. Textured slate walls are coupled with peachy colours in the rooms and the hotel has an al fresco dining terrace that’s a stunning feature.

In the buffet restaurant, there’s a blend of Montenegrin and international cuisine. There’s also a corner for little ones and their favourites.

Overview of Budva

Budva is a something-for-everyone location on the Adriatic coast. You’ll have 21km of coastline to enjoy, but there’s much more to this beautiful location than just sun-kissed sands.

The swanky harbour is a great place for a relaxing afternoon watching the yachts bob on the water, and in the evening there’s a lively nightlife scene. Budva’s main hub is its historic old town, however, and this ancient walled peninsula packs a lot in, including castles, churches and boutiques.

Whether you want to relax, explore or soak up the history, Budva’s a great location for a holiday to Montenegro.

Things to do in Budva

The Aleksandar is just a short stroll from the beach. Plenty of modern facilities line the back of the sand and a walkway connects all the beaches from the harbour area to the old town.

A 15-minute stroll along the promenade will take you to Budva’s old town. The medieval settlement is surrounded by fortified walls, impressive gates and looming towers. Within the walls, there’s a historical showcase of all the cultures that have left their mark on Budva over the years.

When the sun goes down, there are plenty of spots to let your hair down. Most of the action is by the harbour, and you might even spot a celebrity!

The Aleksandar is a great base for a Montenegrin adventure and you’ll fall in love with the unique destination of Budva.

Resort Summary

The gem in Budva’s crown is the old town found on the peninsula, extending from the coast into the Adriatic Sea. This medieval settlement is known as Stari Grad and is surrounded by fortified walls, city gates and towers. These are an attraction in themselves, as are the cobbled streets to be found within the walls.

Along these narrow streets you’ll find a historical showcase of all the cultures that have made their mark on Budva. Venetian houses sit alongside ancient structures, such as the 7th-century Church of Sveti Trojica, and shady squares that are home to striking monuments.

Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy browsing the many shops that dot the streets. Most are little boutiques that sell quality clothing, shoes and jewellery.
