Bright white bliss: a stunning cliffside spa hotel with glorious sea views, an excellent restaurant and James Bond-style boat transfers to Dubrovnik Old Town
From the moment we stepped into the glass lift and swept down to Villa Dubrovnik’s spotless white reception, we knew we were in for a treat. With its sleek rooms, chic spa and wonderfully atmospheric restaurant, this is the perfect romantic retreat. Built into the rocky coastline just outside Dubrovnik Old Town, the hotel is blissfully peaceful and private, yet it’s just an 8-minute vaporetto speedboat ride into one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval walled cities.
Soak up some culture amongst the marble cobbles and open-air cafés, before returning to unwind on the hotel’s private beach or in its world-class spa. As dusk falls, ascend to the cool rooftop bar for sunset cocktails overlooking the Adriatic. Our favourite moments were spent over dinner on the alfresco restaurant terrace; lights twinkled in the trees as we dined on exquisite Mediterranean cuisine, captivated by the moonlit sea and the distant glowing walls of the Old Town.
