Bottom Line

The 56-room Villa Dubrovnik is a luxury boutique with top-class facilities overlooking the pristine Adriatic Sea. Located away from the main tourist hub, yet still with easy access to Old Town, the hotel's sense of seclusion blends with impeccable service and a romantic setting to create something rather special. Rooms are modern and inviting with big balconies and sea views; bathrooms have nice extras such as under-floor heating. Suites have private hot tubs. There are an indoor pool, spa, and fitness center on-site, along with multiple restaurant and bar options. It's certainly one of the pricier options available in the area, but if the budget can stretch, it's worth every penny.

Scene

Relaxed, luxurious boutique with secluded romantic ambience

Entrance to the Villa Dubrovnik is via a street-level elevator whose smart, perfectly presented polished wood paneling is the first introduction to this practically flawless boutique. Visitors emerge into a world of minimalist chic, and a spectacular tall stone wall creates a palpable feeling of exclusive seclusion and detachment. The mood of calm tranquility continues into the chic lobby area (renovated after our visit) and through into the main building -- a pristine, clean-lined piece of contemporary architecture imbedded into the cliff-side overlooking a private rocky beach and crystal-clear, turquoise waters. The scene is coolly stated luxury throughout with an emphasis on relaxation and privacy, largely appealing to and attracting couples looking for a romantic oasis with minimal distractions. 

Location

Set in a cliff overlooking the Adriatic, one mile from Dubrovnik's stunning Old Town

The hotel is located to the south of Dubrovnik and about a mile from the Pile Gate and entrance to its stunning Old Town -- the whole of which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Those who'd rather not walk the 20 or so minutes can be ferried to the Old Town in the hotel's Venetian vaporetto speedboat, which also offers tours around the surrounding area (during the summer). Dubrovnik Airport is fairly close by -- just 13 miles away or a 20-minute drive. 

Rooms

Inviting rooms with Egyptian cotton, under-floor heating, and balconies with spectacular sea views

The property has 50 rooms and six suites all superbly finished in warm, polished wood with clean-lined modern furnishings and muted fabrics. Each room has floor-to-ceiling windows that slide open to teak balconies overlooking the sea. Beds are topped with Egyptian cotton sheets and spacious contemporary bathrooms include ETRO luxury toiletries and under-floor heating. Free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and pay movies are a given, while suites also include hot tubs and a large separate lounge area. (Executive Rooms also have hot tubs.) There are also two villas, both with their own entrance and parking.

Features

Private beach, indoor pool, and luxury spa -- not to mention a private speedboat

In addition to a chic indoor pool and private rocky beach with loungers, the hotel has a spa offering massage and beauty treatments in wonderfully serene surrounds with scented candles and soothing music. There is a super-sleek gym and fitness room for those inclined, as well as a bio-sauna and Turkish bath. A cooked-to-order breakfast (usually included) is available each morning on the terrace of the renovated Restaurant Pjerin, while in the evening it serves a menu of refined Mediterranean cooking. The library lounge offers additional al fresco seating, while the rooftop wine bar provides a perfect setting for an evening drink. The hotel's private vaporetto speedboat also offers transportation to and from the Old Town as well as tours of the area (but only during summer months).
