Situated in the center of the island, Palace Elisabeth sits above the city hall, overlooking Dalmatia’s main square and marina.

The hotel has 45 luxury rooms and suites, providing guests with panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and the surrounding city. All guest bedrooms incorporate traditional Venetian details and designs inspired by the hotel’s history, as well as classic marble countertops. Additionally, each guestroom includes Guerlain bath amenities, plush bathrobes and a complimentary minibar. Guests can also enjoy concierge services, including yacht rentals and daily excursions.
