Sveti Stefan (literally "Saint Stephen"; Montenegrin/Serbian Cyrillic: Свети Стефан, Italian: Santo Stefano di Pastrovicchio) is a seaside resort in western Montenegro, located 5 km southeast of Budva, on the Budva Riviera ( [show location on an interactive map] 42°15′20″N 18°53′28″E / 42.25556°N 18.89111°E / 42.25556; 18.89111Coordinates: [show location on an interactive map] 42°15′20″N 18°53′28″E / 42.25556°N 18.89111°E / 42.25556; 18.89111). It used to be a tidal island, but is now permanently connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus.

In the 15th century the island was a fishermen's village. In the 1950s the last residents of the village were evicted, and Sveti Stefan was transformed into a luxury town-hotel. It is the most exclusive resort on Montenegro's coast.

Sveti Stefan was popular among celebrities, and among its guests were Marilyn Monroe, Willy Brandt, Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, Monica Vitti, Ingemar Stenmark, Kirk Douglas, Jonathan Miller and Claudia Schiffer.

The streets, walls, roofs and faηades of the buildings have retained their original shapes, while the interior of the houses has been transformed to offer the most modern luxury hotel comfort.
