When Novak Djokovic’s wedding party descends upon the Adriatic coast this week, they will find a resort befitting the A-list crowd. The Aman Sveti Stefan is a sprawling property in Montenegro bordered by forested hills.
According to insiders, the resort will host Djokovic’s rumored 100-plus guests today and July 10.
We check out the Wimbledon champ’s luxe lair:
Djokovic and his fiancée, Jelena Ristic (pictured below), will likely wed at Aman’s Villa Miločer, once the summer residence of Montenegro’s Queen Marya and later Yugoslavian dictator Tito. The villa has been transformed into an eight-suite oasis decorated in Aman’s signature minimalist style. Restaurant Loggia, the wisteria-covered terrace overlooking the Adriatic, is rumored to be the location of the actual nuptials.
During the wedding, guests will probably walk the narrow causeway from the villa to the magnificently restored 15th-century village, which contains 50 guest rooms and cottages connected by a labyrinth of cobblestone lanes. Rooms feature original stone walls and are rustic yet elegant. Village lanes are bordered by fragrant fresh lavender, rosemary and wild thyme, and accented by pools, restaurants and courtyards. Best of all, the Wi-Fi is suprisingly excellent.
