Heritage Hotels in Croatia: 5 Seaside Palaces of Pleasure


We’re taking you to some of the most beautiful heritage hotels in the Adriatic, fit for royalty, where guests can find peace and quiet surrounded by nature

LOPUD 1483, Dubrovnik
Lopud 1483 is located on the northern tip of Lopud island in a Franciscan monastery that has been overlooking the island for centuries. The property has been lovingly restored over the past 20 years by Creative Director Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza and her family.

The 13 original cells of the 5,000 square metre monastery have been transformed into five exquisite suites, with wooden ceilings, windows and floors and views onto the sea or medicinal garden. Each room features a unique combination of renaissance furniture, from the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection as well as bespoke new pieces by Italian designer Paola Lenti and contemporary art from the TBA21 collection.

Intimate meals can be enjoyed outside or in the Old Kitchen – a charming space with an open fire and functional bread oven, while guests can indulge with cocktails and canapes on the Sunset Terrace, located on the top of the fortress, offering exceptional views of Lopud and The Elaphiti Islands.

When you arrive in the port of Maslinica on the island of Šolta, the first thing you notice is the impressive 18th-century palace of the Heritage Hotel Martinis Marchi with beautiful marina.

This exclusive boutique hotel has only seven luxury suites all with beautiful sea or pool views. We advise visiting this unique hotel from May until October. Still, it is most opulent during the first weekend of August when they organize traditional Martinis Marchi Summer Party – a thematic luxury event with lavish entertainment, fashion show, and abundant gastronomic offer.

The main inspiration for the renovation of the former 18th century Bishop’s Palace in Korcula was the famous traveller Marco Polo and his travels along the Silk Road.

This boutique sanctuary has all together five unique and spacious suites named after the regions explored by Marco Polo: Ceylon, India, Arabia, China and Venice. Michelin-starred LD Restaurant, whose terrace stretches along the old city walls mere steps from the sea, is one of the aces of the island gastronomy. LD Spa, also in the palace, enchants with unique Ayurvedic and Thai wellness programs.

One of the most beautiful buildings in this area on par with the town loggia, hotel Palace Elisabeth is one of the visual symbols of the city of Hvar. The hotel has 45 luxury rooms and suites and is the first five-star hotel on the island.

The building has been around since the 13th century, and became a hotel in 1899, under the name Spa Hotel Empress Elisabeth, after the Austrian Empress Elisabeth, who was the patron of the hotel and co-financied its reconstruction.

Puteus Palace is a place where history meets elegance. Set on Brac island, this heritage hotel has 13 rooms and two suites all done in an elegant and sophisticated way, but with the comfort of modern amenities.
