Hotels in Croatia

In a region known for its wild Adriatic scenery and Venetian Renaissance architecture, travelers are flocking to Lesic´ Dimitri Palace, housed in a historic bishop’s palace, with six individually designed suites.

The oldest hotel on the island of Hvar, the Palace dates back to 1898 and incorporates a 16th-century Venetian loggia.

It literally took three palaces to build this boutique hotel in central Split, combining Romanic, Gothic, and Renaissance structures to produce Hotel Vestibul on Croatia’s Adriatic coast.

This low-slung property on Croatia’s Pelješac peninsula has a mountain backdrop, but fronts a palm-lined beach that faces the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding islands.

On a cobblestoned path in the small town of Milna, on Brac Island, the four-bedroom villa has its own pool and a konoba (converted wine cellar).

Skip the overexposed island of Hvar for the walled medieval village on the Adriatic island of Korcula, purported home to Marco Polo.

Set in a 12th-century farming village, this boutique-sized retreat focuses on yoga, organic cuisine, and simple accommodations.

Built within the 1,700-year-old Diocletian Palace with only 12 rooms, the hotel is an attraction unto itself. The antique furnishings date back at least 300 years (that said, the bathroom fixtures are very 21st century).

This travel agency started in Split in 2000 and now furnishes apartments, houses, and luxury villas throughout Croatia.

The top choice for style and service, at the center of the Old Town in an impeccably restored 18th-century villa. Rooms are smallish, but comfortable and well designed.

A century-old building on the waterfront that was remodeled in 2006, the Riva Hvar Yacht Harbor Hotel blends its historic charm with modern touches like an on-site marina, water-view terrace, and 24-hour room service.

The glass-and-steel hotel is as big and bold as the yachts that cruise the Dalmatian Coast.

Its stone façade situated directly on the waterfront, this scenic hotel was once a Baroque fortress belonging to a local aristocratic family. The 32 guest rooms are simply designed with clean-lined wooden furniture, focusing attention on the large windows framing views of the Adriatic.
