Five of the best luxury hotels Dubrovnik has to offer
When it comes to luxury hotels, Dubrovnik has no shortage of them. Although it’s not surprising as every year Dubrovnik sees a record number of visitors. In 2021, over 1 million people visited Dubrovnik, and no doubt a large number of them were in search of luxury hotels. Dubrovnik is rapidly growing in both traditional and MICE tourism, therefore it goes without saying that the demand for accommodation is ever increasing.
Of course with the increase in MICE tourism and the city being a hot destination for business and luxury travel, demand is also increasing for luxury hotels. Dubrovnik has not been slow in this area, and many of the legendary hotels have undergone a huge refurbishment, along with many brand new builds. All the best hotels offer everything the modern business traveller needs to unwind after a hard day.
While this list is not exhaustive, it is our pick of some of the best.
1: Hotel Excelsior
Naturally, of all the luxury hotels Dubrovnik has to offer, most of them boast amazing sea views. But the Hotel Excelsior also boasts the best view of the old town walls rising dramatically out of the sea. It’s a 5-minute walk to the eastern entrance to the old town. For dining, you’ll have a choice of several magnificent restaurants, one on a raised terrace with the best sea view around. There is a wellness area with an indoor pool, 2 hot tubs and saunas all with direct access to the hotel beach.
2: Villa Dubrovnik
Villa Dubrovnik, part of Leading Hotels of the World, is a stylish retreat on the rocky cliffs. Fascinating views of the wonderful sea are just unforgettable. During the day clients can enjoy lounging by the pool, walk down the stairs to the beach or enjoy the spa.
When staying at the villa, you will get the celebrity treatment with world-class service that one can only get while staying at the true luxury hotels. Dubrovnik and the hotel will more than impress you, we promise you that. The staff will do everything to make sure you have all you need.
3: Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik
This is one of the oldest luxury hotels Dubrovnik has to offer. Here, modern technology is combined with 19th century decor. The city’s first ever hotel, built in 1897, still exudes the glamour it did in its heyday. The Hilton Imperial has seen many important people over the last century, including King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson when they toured Europe back in 1936. The Hilton is just a short walk from Pile Gate, one of the entrances to the old town.
4: Villa Orsula
Villa Orsula is small and cosy, but with everything that you would expect from luxury hotels. Dubrovnik is just a five-minute walk away, and you get a stunning view of the city walls and the Adriatic Sea from its private beach. The discerning visitor will not be disappointed here. With only 13 rooms, you’ll need to book fast but will receive a personalised service that is second to none, and which of course you’d only get in a small hotel.
5: Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik
When it comes to luxury hotels, Dubrovnik has its fair share of cliff-view choices. Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik is an amazing place built into a cliff in the sheltered, tranquillity of Miramare Bay. It’s a world away from the crowds of Dubrovnik, but close enough for a 15-minute walk to be among them in the old town. In cool white marble, glass and wooden decor, this hotel offers 77 rooms and 14 suites. All rooms have a sea view, and the a la carte restaurant offers up delicious Dalmatian seafood alongside international favourites. Wine lovers will enjoy the 180 domestic and international wines in the wine bar.
