‘Walled City to Blissful Bay’
This delightful multi-centre itinerary will combine the medieval history of Dubrovnik with the magical allure of the Adriatic Sea on a beautiful bay in neighbouring Montenegro.
The medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, the Croatia’s star attraction, more than lives up to its billing. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town is an architectural masterpiece and at its heart Luza Square is home to the imposing 16th century Sponza Palace.
With a mountainous interior, gorgeous towns and cities, and a bijou coastline of picturesque beaches, Montenegro proves that great things come in small packages, a small nation with a lot of charm. Quaint villages and elaborate monasteries dot the country and medieval walled towns fringe the turquoise coastal waters.
Hotel Dubrovnik Palace nestles on the scenic seafront between a pine forest and the turquoise coastal waters of the lush Lapad peninsula. Just a few minutes’ drive northwest of medieval Dubrovnik Old Town, the stunning location offers phenomenal photo opportunities of the Elafiti Islands from every direction.
This contemporary luxury resort has direct access to a quiet and peaceful beach, two outdoor pools plus a third indoor pool. Additionally, you’ll find a PADI diving centre, tennis court, and a leafy jogging path and walking routes through the picturesque woods that rise up Petka hill behind the hotel.
At the nexus of gentle azure seas and majestic mountains, you’ll find The Chedi Luštica Bay, a luxury 5-star Montenegro hotel. Located on the magnificent Montenegrin coast 16 km from Tivat, The Chedi Luštica Bay welcomes travellers to unwind amidst authentic, breathable luxury.
This luxurious retreat, a member of The Leading Hotels of The World, encompasses exceptionally elegant rooms and suites, two restaurants, two bars, versatile meeting facilities, a private beach, an Asian-inspired Spa, an indoor pool, and an outdoor infinity pool. From the culinary artistry to the thoughtful guest amenities, The Chedi Luštica Bay offers everything you could expect from one of the most exclusive luxury Montenegro hotels, brought to life with genuine hospitality and flawless service that anticipates your every need.
Elafiti is the main restaurant at Dubrovnik Palace, serving a Mediterranean style buffet. There’s also the beach restaurant, Ponta, where you’ll find light cuisine and summer snacks overlooking the sea or head to Lean & Light for a healthy menu of raw foods, light salads and low-fat desserts as well as late night bites and post-dinner drinks.
Alternatively, head out into the old town of Dubrovnik for an endless selection of dining venues and experiences, just a few minutes away in a taxi.
Try The Restaurant for regional cuisine with a contemporary Mediterranean twist, or over on the promenade you’ll find The Spot where a lively ambience works perfectly with the fusion of traditional local cuisine and modern techniques. The Rok Beach Bar & Lounge is the place for a casual chic beach experience perfect for lounging and socialising over cocktails and street food from around the world.
Board your EasyJet flight from London Gatwick to Dubrovnik in Croatia. Upon arrival, a private transfer will meet you at the airport for the journey to the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel, you’ll be staying here for the next 3 nights in a Superior Sea View Room with breakfast included.
Days Two to Three
Dubrovnik is such a wonderful city, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to do while you’re here. Wander the bustling boutiques, markets and bars; savour freshly caught seafood while gazing out to sea at sunset; walk along the iconic walls or take a cable car up to Mount Srd for the most spectacular views of Dubrovnik.
Today a private transfer will pick you up from the Dubrovnik Palace and drive you across the border into Montenegro and to the Chedi Luštica Bay where you’ll spend the next 7 nights in a Superior Room, again with breakfast included.
Days Five to Ten
After so much sightseeing in Dubrovnik it would be so easy to spend the week here relaxing at the pool or on the private beach. If you can pull yourself away, then you’ll find that Montenegro may well be the jewel of the Adriatic Sea. This is a breathtakingly beautiful and culturally rich destination. If you appreciate the peace then venture out to discover quaint fishing villages, Europe’s deepest canyon, endless olive groves and family farms that have been in existence for centuries. For something a bit livelier, the coastal towns here provide a wealth of restaurants, shops and nightlife.
Sadly, all good things come to an end. Today a private transfer will pick you up from the hotel and take you to the nearby Tivat Airport where you’ll board your EasyJet flight back to London Gatwick.
Located just a few minutes’ drive northwest of Dubrovnik Old Town overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Hotel Dubrovnik Palace is half an hour away from Dubrovnik Airport.
The Chedi Luštica Bay (shown on the map) is located in Trašte Bay on the waterfront with its very own private beach. It is just under 9 miles from Tivat centre, and the old town of Kotor is 8.1 miles away.
