The Dalmatian coast is a captivating territory of emerald waters, rich cultures and the place where holiday-makers descend from March until September of each year. Croatia has the lion’s share of the Adriatic Sea's eastern coastline and plenty of tony vacation spots with its most popular being Dubrovnik. The Hotel Excelsior is arguably Dubrovnik’s most chic hotel, catering to jet-setters from around the world, and an ideal host to experience all that the area has to offer.

Excelsior Dubrovnik

Old Town Dubrovnik is a fairytale-like village of medieval castle walls, moats, bridges and cobblestone walking streets. This stunning walled city has red terracotta roofs and narrow alleys in pristine condition, making Old Town Dubrovnik a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage site. There are dozens of Gothic and Renaissance churches and monasteries with beautiful frescos and artifacts inside, and orate exterior facades. Its massive limestone fortresses, five-story limestone walls, and well-preserved 13th century architecture is why it’s been chosen as the backdrop for numerous blockbusters such as Game of Thrones, Robin Hood, and the latest Star Wars saga.

The hotel faces the Adriatic sea offering views of its cruise ships, mega yachts and recreational boats crisscrossing in front of the hilly Lodkrum Island. Just beyond are views of the ramparts and walls of Old Town, and the surreal beauty of the coastline and the sea. The property was originally a villa built for the royal family in 1913 and after its most recent renovation, has become one of the top hotels in the region.
