D-Marinas and luxury hotels
Ultimate pleasure and guest experience is a top priority of the Turkish group which has for the past few years been strategically investing in Croatian sailing and tourism
Dogus Group has been present in Croatia since 2009, successfully enriching the Croatian tourism offer with their high-end luxury facilities. Their marina portfolio includes D-Marin Mandalina in Šibenik, D-Marin Dalmacija in Sukošan and D-Marin Borik in Zadar, while D-Resort Šibenik and Villa Dubrovnik are among their luxury hotels. D-Marin Mandalina is situated in the town of Šibenik, an ideal location to discover the rich Dalmatian past and its coast. Nestled in a naturally protected harbour, this marina is one of the safest places on the coast and is the only marina that can accommodate superyachts up to 140 meters. Out of a total of 429 berths, 79 have been specially designed for superyachts. D-Marin Mandalina is also the only Croatian marina holding the 5 Anchors categorization from the Ministry of Tourism, as well as the first one with five Golden Anchors from The Yacht Harbour Association; and a Five Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Science. Besides this, the marina holds the Blue Flag, as proof of the clean sea. For those who wish to explore the magic of Central Adriatic, or set sail to the south or north, D-Marin Dalmacija in Sukošan is the perfect choice. The largest Adriatic marina is located only seven kilometers south of Zadar, and features 1,200 berths and 300 dry berths. Thanks to the water depth and spacious berths equipped according to international standards, the marina offers mooring for boats up to 80 meters long. Also, it is among a few nautical tourism marinas to have its own beach. Restaurants in D-Marin Dalmacija are a splendid choice for all who enjoy homemade specialties but like to try delicacies seasoned with modern ideas. The marina has been awarded the Blue Flag for its clean waters; and with the new luxury Beach Club, D-Marin Dalmacija will become a true lifestyle destination with the highest level of service.
The west coast of the town of Zadar is home to a D-Marin Borik, which has the capacity of 177 yachts up to 30 meters, and 50 additional dry berths. First-class service and great connections by road and air are what makes this marina one of a kind. D-Resort Šibenik, located at the heart of D-Marin Mandalina offers magnificent views of the old town and the St Anthony Canal, as well as prime service and accommodation in 63 luxury rooms, six suites and three exclusive villas, as well as a number of additional facilities, like several restaurants and bars, spa center and a gym, luxury boutiques and kids’ club. Villa Dubrovnik is the most exclusive boutique hotel in Croatia, with numerous awards showing the highest quality of service and luxury the guests can experience while staying at the hotel. The Villa has recently been fully renovated, so its classical style got a beautiful contemporary look, courtesy of architect Ms Fabrizia Frezza. She carried out a functional and aesthetic revolution in the courtyard, once unused open space which today is a modern atrium. The bright white, so typical of Mediterranean interiors is a gorgeous contrast to the dark interior dominated by designer custom-made furniture, especially in the bar and restaurant. The reception has also been functionally redesigned, with a lovely view of the sea. This space is finished in local natural stone and dark wood. The sea view was the vision behind the layout, which is particularly visible in the bar, while the restaurant walls are decorated with old black & white photographs of Dubrovnik as a reminder of its unique history, at the same time creating a pleasant, almost family atmosphere. Villa Dubrovnik is an ideal vacation spot, and the culinary delicacies of the restaurant, the wine bar and lounge bar on the rooftop with its unforgettable view of Dubrovnik, remain forever in the memory of each guest.
