Rest & relaxation is the order of the day. As is a fair amount for the thrill seeker.
Rest & relaxation is the order of the day at the Villa Dubrovnik. A highly modern hotel which glitters with sleek clean lines and a bright and airy interior whilst being cloaked in history and almost six decades of tradition. Located on the cliffs above beautiful Dubrovnik, you’d be hard pushed to find a corner of this Villa not home to an outstanding view across the sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. All the Villa’s bars and restaurants sit on the cliff edges and peer longingly out to the horizon.
The hotel is a 20-minute walk from the sun-soaked walls of the Old Town, but why walk when you can sail over the glistening turquoise waters in a Venetian taxi boat. Walk along the well-preserved original city walls and explore the historic buildings peppered through the town. Pay a visit to the four magnificent fortresses at the corners of the town before discovering the secret little bar hanging on to the outside of the city walls with nothing beneath you but water. Search for the small opening in the wall to find it…
All Villa Dubrovnik’s rooms come with stunning sea views out over to the picturesque island of Lokrum and the Old Town walls. Stylish, modern design features give the rooms a stark elegance while also providing ultimate comfort and relaxation. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony or curl up with a good book as ships roll by below the cliffs.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The ‘wine book’. Villa Dubrovnik has such an extensive range of wines, they cannot be placed in a mere list, they sit proudly in the ‘wine book’. Maybe the best book in the world. Indulge your inner connoisseur, then sit back and watch the world go by from the magnificent Skybar, which is exactly as amazing as it sounds.
This luxurious country lodge, straddling a river bulging with jumping salmon, Hotel Rangá gives you an abundance of fresh food, incredible views and if you are a bit of a thrill seeker, how about a private helicopter ride over the glaciers, taking off right from the hotels back garden.

Delectable cuisine at Hotel Rangá is modern Nordic with a twist of Mediterranean guaranteeing you fresh and flavoursome bursts with every mouthful. We recommend salmon with sweet potato and white chocolate puree, champagne foam and fresh strawberries, an unlikely but exquisite and surprisingly mouth-watering combination. Oh and the Northern Lights wake up service is pretty special too.
