Adriatic Luxury Hotels has reopened three of its properties for the start of the 2017 tourist season in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Villa Agave, Villa Orsula, and Villa Sheherezade are all located on the Dalmatian coast.
Each property blends modern luxuries with historic design. Villa Agave was named one of the most beautiful and opulent villas in the country; Villa Orsula was originally built in 1939 as a private residence before being converted into a hotel in 1989; and Villa Sheherezade is located on a clifftop, facing the island of Lokrum and Dubrovnik’s famous fortress walls. The last of the trio has its own pier and beach.
All three villas are located just a short walk from Dubrovnik’s Old Town, the cultural center of the region, filled with numerous historical monuments, museums, churches, monasteries, art galleries, markets and boutiques. Dubrovnik has also been gaining attention for its vineyards, where guests may sample the wine and culinary specialties of Croatia. Currently, travelers may also stumble upon the filming of the upcoming major motion picture, Robin Hood, starring Jamie Foxx and Jamie Dornan.
Croatia has seen a significant increase in tourism over the past few years, especially from North American travelers. A record of 7.5 million passengers came through the Dalmatia airports in 2016, almost 2 million of which from Dubrovnik alone – a 17.7% increase from the previous year. This boom in Dubrovnik’s tourism is expected to increase, and was a driving factor behind the construction of new terminals, which are set to open this year.
In addition, Brac Airport has added helicopter transfers to Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar, and Montenegro as part of their luxury offerings for the 2017 season. The coastal ferry line with six stops from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, is also scheduled to be reinstated to accommodate the influx of tourists the country is expecting.
Based in Dubrovnik, Croatia, Adriatic Luxury Hotels owns and operates a diverse collection of seaside hotels and villas in Croatia. Its portfolio includes Hotel Bellevue, Villa Agave, Villa Orsula, Hotel Excelsior, Villa Sheherezade, Villa Grand Argentina, Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, Hotel Croatia Cavtat, Villa Glavic, Hotel Kompas, Hotel Odisej Mljet, and Hotel Supetar Cavtat.
