We arrived at midday, a few hours early for our 3pm check in, so we went for a light lunch on the hotel terraces, and they are certainly something to behold. Indeed, they it was a very welcome rest and quite delightful area, especially as this was actually the first hotel we visited after we arrived in Dubrovnik. The views are spectacular and stunningly picturesque, and every other guest we happened to chat to, said exactly the same. With 158 rooms and suites, all recently refurbished, it is the ideal place to relax, feel spoilt, and even indulge in a few spa treats.
Spacious, luxurious, and totally gorgeous, our executive suite was really very lovely. The balcony that stretched the whole length of both the bedroom and lounge was wonderful, and the amazing bathroom (1of2) was outstanding with its views from the tub. It is quite simply really well designed, and quite homely. Only a few times on holiday have we been so in awe of a suite that we wished to spend more time in it than exploring, but we really did have to leave, especially as the sea looked so magnificent.
The private beach is a platform that sits adjacent to the sea, with steps going into the warm waters. There are plenty of sun loungers, and every now and then a helpful waiter will pass and take drinks orders. We spend a good while there, and loved chatting with fellow guests, before we went and admired the spa, indoor pool, and browed the various restaurants. We opted to go the short distance to the Old Town that evening, and had a meal out, but due to the ideal location, it was very easy to find when we wandered back in the moonlight, past the popular neighbouring sand and pebble beach.
Breakfast was included in our stay, and we thought the spread provided was really impressive. Whilst it was self-service, there was an array of cooked and continental options, including champagne should you wish to indulge. The staff were lovely and really looked after the guests, getting teas and coffees, and wishing everyone well. All in all, the hotel is really just great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and recommend staying there if you feel like a special vacation, or city break.
