Croatia resorts add a dose of luxury to your Adriatic adventure. While many bed and breakfasts are comfortable and cozy options for accommodations, there are also chances to splurge at beach resorts in Croatia. With a coastline of more than 3,600 miles including the hundreds of islands, finding a resort in Croatia won’t be the difficult part; having to choose one over another will leave you planning a return trip back to the unspoiled beauty of the Dalmatian coast.
Croatian resorts usually have an interesting history. This is especially the case in Dubrovnik, where homes and former political buildings have been transformed into luxury Croatia resorts. On the market square in the old town of Dubrovnik is the Pucic Palace, an antique-rich mansion with nineteen bedrooms. If you’re looking for beach resorts in Croatia and want to be near the city of Dubrovnik, The Grand Villa Argentina is right on the seafront and has a spacious sunbathing terrace.
For a bit of history at a resort in Croatia, the Villa Dubrovnik (pictured) delivers. This hotel was once a rest home for communist officials, and now it is a lovely hotel that offers a water taxi to the old town of Dubrovnik. This service spares guests the ten- to fifteen-minute walk to the medieval walled city, and it also gets visitors out onto the water for the spectacular view of the city from the sea. It may just inspire guests to try their hand at water sports, such as kayaking, sailing, or one of the many boat tours on offer in the port of Dubrovnik.
Outside of the city of Dubrovnik there are many Croatia resorts as well. On the islands, visitors can expect a bit of old-world charm to accompany their luxuries. On the island of Korcula, Hotel Korcula has a great location on the waterfront in close proximity to the old town. The island of Hvar isn’t known for its luxurious resorts, but there are plenty of affordable and comfortable accommodation options. The island of Brac has seen some development of beach resorts in Croatia, including hotels in close proximity to the famous beach, Zlatni Rat; one popular option is the Villa Giardino, which is known for its extensive gardens.
The Italian border is home to more than one beautiful resort in Croatia. Rovinj has a distinctly Italian influence, as the harbor used to be a Venetian port. An eighteenth-century bishop’s palace has been converted into a resort called Hotel Villa Angelo d’Oro. When you’re strolling the cobbled streets of the old town, you’ll be happy you squeezed in this stop on your vacation to Croatia. There are many packages offered by some of the bigger and corporate owned resorts as well. Often these have the best pool facilities and are guaranteed to offer modern amenities. The historic side of Croatia can be explored through its resorts, and it's great to come home and be able to say you’ve stayed in a palace.
