The hotel Villa Dubrovnik epitomizes Croatia from start to finish: styled by two home-grown designers, built out of grey stone from Brac and perched on a rocky coast overlooking the deep azure Adriatic. Spend your day soaking up the sun or working through every tension at the serene spa. At night, salivate over sunset views before supping on seafood at the Michelin star-worthy restaurant. Villa Dubrovnik has such an extensive range of wines, they cannot be placed in a mere list, they sit proud in the ‘wine book’. Maybe the best book in the world. Indulge your inner connoisseur, then sit back and watch the world go by from the magnificent Skybar, which is exactly as amazing as it sounds.
Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort
As Croatian hideaways go, The Amfora’s 1930’s art deco exterior means that it is positively modern. However, it’s still party to that faultless Croatian combination of romantic nostalgia, rugged natural beauty and modern elegance that we have fallen head over heels for. The Amfora Resort peps this up in hip Hvar with its ultra-luxe Bonj ‘les bains’ beach club. Amfora captures the absolute best of this. Tucked away in the bay just west of Hvar’s Habour above tranquil turquoise waters, yet take a short stroll through lush pine groves to find yourself in the centre of Hvar moving to the beat along the harbor wall.
The amazing character of the Grand Hotel Villa Igiea comes from the classic luxury style of the original Art Nouveau interiors installed by the famous architect Ernesto Basile at the end of the 19th Century. Many of the original frescos, decoration and furniture remain today, keeping the grand and magnificent style alive. This home away from home is placed on the Bay of Palermo, surrounded by stunning, serene vistas. Boasting an impressive 120 rooms, this resort is very much a landmark of Sicily’s capital city. Perched on the northern edge of the island, overlooking the dazzling Mediterranean Sea, Villa Igiea is idyllically placed in Sicily’s capital Palermo, a city with bundles to offer. Just a quick 30 minute walk to the center of Palermo there is plenty to do and enjoy, with Villa Igiea’s staff on hand to help you make the most of your stay.
