It's hard to imagine a destination with more beautiful beaches to lounge on--especially considering Croatia has over 3,500 miles of serene coastline to choose from. Indulge in the local white wine, pack a picnic and hike until you find the perfect perch for lunch with a view, and spend your afternoons roaming the alleys of Croatia's ancient towns. June to September are the prime months to visit the rocky beaches and aquamarine waters of Croatia, and be sure to add a visit to Plitvice Lakes National Park to your list while you're there--the most incredible, captivating waterfalls you'll ever lay eyes on!
Hotel Monte Mulini
You’ll find plenty to love along Croatia’s heart-shaped Istrian Peninsula – beginning with Hotel Monte Mulini. Set atop a small hill overlooking the Adriatic with the Punta Corrente forest as a backdrop, the hotel affords gorgeous views from all 113 rooms and suites. Its 4,200-square-foot poolscape dazzles with four distinctive pools surrounded by lush gardens; claim a plush lounger, follow the hydro-circuit, or belly up to the pool bar. Go kayaking and paddleboarding, get a gold-infused facial, sip a gin and tonic in the cozy gin library, and take a seat at the chef’s table in the Wine Vault restaurant.
WIT Tip: The hotel is an easy walk from the picturesque Old Town of Rovinj, one of the most charming places in all of Croatia. Get lost in its maze of narrow alleyways lined with quaint shops, galleries, and cafés.
Villa Dubrovnik is ideally set on the cliffs of Saint Jacob’s District with direct stunning views of the Adriatic and historical city, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most of the 56 residences offer sea or city views and all have ample private balconies. Easy access to the city is a plus for this hotel. Enjoy the ambience and sunsets on the rooftop bar. Indulge in Mediterranean cuisine at Restaurant Pjerin or Al Fresco Bar Giardino. Relish the breeze in the indoor/outdoor pool and seaside terrace or beach club. Soothe your soul at the lavish Villa Spa or at the contemporary gym.
WIT Tip: The hotel offers a memorable panorama cruise in a breathtaking Vaporetta speedboat.
Boutique Hotel Alhambra
Boutique Hotel Alhambra
With 51 rooms, Boutique Hotel Alhambra is situated on the tranquil Čikat Bay, surrounded by pine forest. This lavishly refurbished 1912 residence on Lošinj Island – once an imperial retreat – spares no expense in creating one of Croatia’s most bespoke experiences. Walls of glass, clean lines, concept lighting, and contemporary decor add a modern sensibility to its ageless grandeur, perhaps best appreciated from under a parasol on the private beach or on the restaurant’s terrace while enjoying a themed gastronomic experience and one of the area’s finest wine cellars.
WIT Tip: Lošinj is known as the "island of vitality," and the moniker rings true for the spa, which utilizes many of the 1,200 aromatic herbs that grow here. Better still, indulge in an in-room massage.
Prepare to be enamored by the shades of blue and green you'll see looking out from Croatia's beaches, but also consider allowing time for a truffle hunt on the mainland--a guided hunt with truffle-sniffing dogs, an especially unique experience as Croatia is one of the only places in the world where truffles can be found!
