The unspoilt Adriatic coastline is a glittering jewel in Croatia‘s crown, azure skies, clear ocean waters and red tiled rooftops are the signature notes of this region. Here are six other reasons to travel there this summer and autumn.
1. Hotels are upping their game
The already fabulous Villa Dubrovnik in Dubrovnik has new owners who are going to make their mark. They have already parachuted in expert staff from the sister Capri Palace Hotel to enhance service levels and a decor refresh is underway.
Park Hotel, Split
Over in Split, the turn of the century Park Hotel, had seen its glory days. In just over 40 days the hotel is expected to reopen after a transformation. We will be flying straight over in July to personally inspect, and hope that it looks as good as the design renderings. A great location, this is the hotel we have been waiting for in Split.
2. The Diocletian’s Palace
Staying in Split, the Roman Diocletian’s Palace is a must see. Not one building, but a wonderful labyrinth of intertwining streets where people still live, eat and work, it is a living, thriving museum.
3. Delicious Food
Croatia is climbing culinary heights, from the truffle infused Istrian Peninsula to the Dalmatian Coast known for the freshest seafood. Enjoy one of our favorite restaurants, Dvor, in Split, perched above the sea, in its own secluded garden.
4. Exceptional Islands
Even if you don’t have time to make it to Hvar, Korcula or Mljet, you can enjoy the most secluded and exclusive Elaphiti Islands close to Dubrovnik with a day on your private boat. You can move around at your will, and even in peak season, you will find a hidden spot.
Croatia boasts an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day, and the island of Hvar has the accolade of being the sunniest of all with 2,800 hours of sun per year!
The perfect partner to Dubrovnik and Split. End your stay in total relaxation at the Aman Sveti Stefan. A truly unique resort crafted from a fishing village.
