Get the best choice for  your Croatia holiday in 2018…

When it comes to the best small boutique hotels, these  sell out first and fast.

We therefore encourage our loyal customers to book early for Croatia holidays 2018 to avoid the disappointment of not getting the hotel of their choice.

Some of our best and most valued hotels have already informed us that rooms are selling fast and are likely to be booked much earlier than they might have done in previous years.

Our insight, experience and contacts in Croatia inform us that the rise in next year’s bookings is partly due to unrest and potential instability in other popular holiday destinations.

Croatia is one of the top growing holiday destinations, with its crystal blue bays, central location within Europe (only a two hour flight away),  and beautiful landscapes it’s easy to see why. It is no surprise therefore, that mainstream holiday providers are turning their focus and attention on Croatia like never before. Effectively, accommodation demand is on the rise with customers required to plan holidays far earlier in advance.

Our specialist nature means we aim to find hotels off the beaten path that provide a unique and personal experience. However, with this being the case, many of our hotels have fewer rooms and availability in comparison to some of the larger package deal hotels. We’ve seen an increase in early enquiries from customers in recent years, wishing to get away from the traditional tour operator offering.

Whilst booking so early may seem a difficult task, being prepared is the best possible option when looking to snare one of our personally vetted boutique hotels.

So as with a few forward thinking individuals already committed for 2018 here are our top picks among the hotels that fill up first!

Hotel Bozica

The ultimate island idyll, have 2 brand new additional Suites one with its own little kitchenette.  Both are tucked away yet still enjoying the breath-taking views for which this hotel is renowned.

Villa Andrea

Continues to be a super 4-star boutique property – still run by the same friendly and efficient couple with whom we have worked for the past 13 years.  During this time, the hotel has improved beyond all recognition.  The restaurant is so good that the locals travel to eat here, and Completely Croatia guests enjoy an exclusive 15% off prices!  Tucked at the end of a promenade, yet within easy walking distance of plenty of bars and restaurants it’s a tranquil spot, and did we mention you step out of the hotel right onto the beach?

Marco Polo

Is a prizewinning boutique property, family owned and run.  Located in sleepy Gradac yet only a 15-minute walk to the centre of town.  This is a super romantic hideaway.  Each room is totally unique.  There is an excellent spa and small pool.  Another one which you step out of onto the beach.  And the hotel has its own boat which they use for tailor made excursions.

Cruise holidays

In addition to MS Splendid and MS Kleopatra, our preferred Cruise Partners have many different cruises, the ideal way to see islands and towns of Croatia in an easy laid back fashion. So we’d advise early booking for 2018 Croatia island hopping cruises.   Ask us about one way small ship cruising as well Split to Dubrovnik and vice versa, this is the ideal partner as part of a cruise and stay. Why not stay a couple of nights pre-cruise and a couple of nights post-cruise for some R&R in special personally sourced locations.

Additional Holidays

We intend for 2018 to increase our outdoor and adventure/special interest holidays and to focus on providing more tailor made holidays to incorporate activities such as stand up paddle boarding (SUP), sea kayaking at sunset, art holidays and photography, wine tasting and culinary,  to name but a few.

And to offer for the first time, tennis holidays as a standalone product, or to offer tennis coaching as part of any holiday we offer in the Dubrovnik, Rovinj and Zadar regions.  All with fully qualified tennis instructors.
