HOTEL CHECK CROATIA, part 1, Villa Dubrovnik


Dubrovnik - Pearl of the Adriatic.  In an unsurpassed location overlooking the fabulous baroque city is the stylish luxury hotel Villa Dubrovnik. The location of the newly renovated hotel is truly stunning and the entrance to the hotel amazing. From the top of the hotel, you take an elevator down to reception as it is built into the mountains.

Everything is brand new as the hotel has recently reopened after a 4-year renovation and much thought and consideration has gone into the design and hotel facilities.

The way to reception


This is a contemporary style hotel (56 Residential units) plus 6 suites and a 3-bedroom villa in the gardens. All sea view residences have a private balcony or terrace separated from the bedroom by a glass wall.


The in-out pool and spa facilities are very well done and a lovely place to relax, providing excellent spa programs including detox and so on. There is also a gym with private trainers. Our favorite area was the private blue and white deck chairs down on the rock platforms by the Adriatic, and the Rooftop SkyBar lounge with the most beautiful vistas in Dubrovnik.

A favourite spot: striped deck chairs below the chalky cliff

Another favourite spot: terrace with view of the walled city

We found the complimentary boat shuttle service to the Old Town to be excellent. The Venetian wooden boat is certainly a lovely way to arrive at the Old Town. Or if you would prefer to walk it only takes 15 minutes.

Who to stay

Discerning customers looking for a relaxed stay a few minute's from one of the world's wonders.


This is a very upmarket hotel and a very popular combination with Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro. It is common for guests to stay at Villa Dubrovnik for 3-4 nights then Sveti Stefan for 3-4 nights.

You need to stay at least 3 days to see all the fantastic sights in Dubrovnik, leaving time over to chill at the rooftop bar, enjoy the spa or sun yourself by the sparkling turquoise Adriatic sea.

One minute by boat or a short swim will get you to this secluded cove:
