I have visited Dubrovnik and absolutely loved wandering around the old walls and the hidden side streets. One evening I came across a quaint hidden walkway which took me through to a cliff side bar (Buza Bar Dubrovnik) which has the most fantastic views across the Adriatic Sea and its also a very peaceful setting for enjoying a glass of wine.

Being a bit of a history enthusiast, I just loved the feel of how old the buildings were, it really felt like I was stepping back in time and the walls had so many stories to tell. I also really enjoyed getting the cable car to Syd Hill for a meal and to enjoy the views of Dubrovnik during sunset- just Beautiful. Another wonderful experience during my visit was enjoying a glass of wine with a fresh fish plater overlooking the harbour watching the fishing boats.

Being a fan of Game of Thrones, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to take a tour to some of the filming locations used in the series which was an absolute must-do experience.

My favourite hotel in Croatia has got to be the Splendida Palace. Its located within steps of a the Unesco Palace of Diocletian's Palace and is a lovely boutique hotel with a unique feel to it! I can’t wait to return to Croatia visit some of its beautiful islands such as split and Hvar.

I would recommend Sibenik and Trogir. Both are very sleepy and ancient which I love, very relaxed atmosphere surrounded by hundreds of years of history and amazing architecture. Trogir is dubbed the ‘Venice of Croatia’ because of the Venetian Architecture. Sibenik has so many churches and museums so a great place to wander around. Both are also very close to Krka National park which looks amazing.

My favourite hotel is the Vestibul Palace in Split. It’s a new one for us but it looks incredible – old stone walls with a modern design and it’s right in the heart of Old Town Split so you can’t go wrong!

To get the most out of your visit I would highly recommendation doing a twin/multi centre – either in Croatia with a city and island tour or a twin Dubrovnik with Montenegro or the Istrian Peninsula with Slovenia is absolutely stunning. Croatia has so much to offer it would be a shame to stay in one place!

Island of Brac is a great option when visiting Split. It is the very opposite of the busy city life which Split offers, which makes it the perfect place to relax and unwind. The sea has an exquisite sky-blue color that invites you for a swim. Brac is an excellent window into authentic island life. Full of extensive and fascinating history.

Supetar is the largest town on the island. Its harbour is an attractive place for a stroll, backed with a network of medieval streets which are lined with local cafes, small shops and some lovely restaurants which offer seating outside. The countryside is also filled with vineyards and olive groves which makes it the ideal place to go wine tasting.
 
Alternatively, Bol is an attractive place made up of small stone houses and winding streets dotted with pink and purple geraniums. It has a great selection of restaurants and café bars on the waterfront where you can enjoy a coffee and watch the world go by.
 
My favourite hotel is the Boutique Heritage Hotel. It is set in a beautiful garden full of Mediterranean trees and flowers. The rooms have been tastefully decorated and each room is unique. The food here is some of the best, freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade pastries and baguettes for breakfast! Yummy! This hotel also has its own private beach around a 15-minute stroll from the hotel with a beach bar offering waiter service and light refreshments. This hotel is an ideal choice for a luxury stay and the most perfect way to relax!

I have travelled pretty extensively across Croatia over the last few years, viewing hotels we offer as part of our portfolio and meeting the management and staff, as well as seeking out new hotels to offer.

Croatia is a beautiful country and has so much to offer, from the amazing cities on the mainland to the harbour towns on the incredible islands as well as some areas of outstanding natural beauty in the national parks.

My favourite place is the stunning island of losinj in the Kvarner region (known as the island of Vitality), for some this Island may seem a little out the way but once you cross over to Cres from the mainland it’s only about an hour and a half to Mali losinj (one of the two main towns). Here there are two amazing hotels in Čikat bay, the Bellevue (which is more modern) and then the Boutique Hotel Alhambra (made up of 2 villas and a modern wing) these hotels allow you to relax in beautiful surrounds whilst being still close by to the town and harbour which boasts a nice selection of bars and restaurants. 

Losinj is an island with amazingly pure air with wild herbs and plants which is used therapeutically, as well as 250km of walking trails, it really is a great island to feel completely lost in.
