The earliest record of Sveti Stefan is as the capital city of the Paštrovići community, which became a protectorate of the Republic of Venice in 1423, having been independent since the twelfth century.

Initially, the island with its fortress had 12 families. In the 1800s, a village was established on the island with a population of about 400 people. The villa, surrounded by 800 olive trees, is laid out over a 32-hectare (79-acre) plot. The population of the island declined in the first half of the twentieth century, as residents left to join the armed forces or to move overseas. From 400 inhabitants in the nineteenth century, there were just 20 remaining by 1954. The Communist Yugoslav dictator Tito converted it into a luxury hotel and moved the remaining inhabitants to the mainland, and the island village became an exclusive resort frequented by high-profile elites of the world.

In July 2014, tennis champion Novak Djokovic married Jelena Ristić at Sveti Stefan.
