For the 2022 SI Swimsuit Issue, our team traveled to seven beautiful locations. Montenegro was our first stop of the year, and we were blown away. In Montenegro we worked with photographer James Macari and with SI Swimsuit models Brooks Nader, Duckie Thot, Lorena Duran, Josephine Skriver, Olivia Ponton, Yumi Nu and Katie Austin, and stayed at the luxurious Maestral Resort & Casino.
The resort is located in one of the most exclusive parts of the Adriatic coast, and with its private beach, it is one of the most attractive resorts on the coast. Most of the rooms have ocean views, and you’ll want them for all of the magnificent sunrises and sunsets that you’ll get to see while staying here. The hotel has several restaurants and bars for you to choose from, and it’s also walking distance to many local amazing restaurants.
Insider Tip: The hotel also has a wellness spa with excellent Thai massages that you will want to take advantage of.
