DISCOVER THE WONDERS OF CROATIA
Croatia offers it all: thousands of islands, rugged mountains and the clearest turquoise waters you’ve ever seen … I could go on and on. It’s also an ideal destination to stay within the cities because there’s so much history to explore. That’s why I’m sharing custom itinerary ideas and several luxurious properties in the heart of ancient Illyricum. I’m beyond excited to tell you more about my favourite Croatian experiences; reach out any time.
To the land of a thousand islands,

An icon of boutique luxury and design, Hotel Bellevue has re-emerged with a fresh, new vibe after a complete refurbishment. Carved into a cliffside with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing the vast Adriatic, this seaside retreat is just around the bay from Dubrovnik’s magnificent 6th-century Old Town. Take in the views from your private balcony, or head to the pebble beach to soak up the rays of the Mediterranean sun. I can also arrange a complimentary three-course dinner for two.
On the Croatian island of Hvar near Stari Grad, one of the oldest towns in the Eastern Adriatic, Maslina Resort is situated in the stunning Maslinica Bay. This resort is surrounded by olive groves and terraced vineyards, and stretches across two hectares of lush pine forest overlooking the crystalline Adriatic Sea. Boasting 50 rooms and three villas, Maslina is a mindful luxury resort that holds wellness, family, culinary arts, cultural heritage and authenticity at its core.
Emerging from cliffs and overlooking the popular St. Jacob district, Villa Dubrovnik is known for its modern architecture and coastal surroundings. Rooms and suites are lined with modern furnishings and bathed in natural light, and a majority of rooms and suites have private balconies or terraces that offer striking sea views. The unmistakably Mediterranean scents of citrus and pine fill the air, while the soothing sound of the sea will put you at ease.
