Boasting a modern design, top-notch facilities, and incredible views of Lapad Bay, the Grand Hotel Park is an ideal place to stay for a holiday in Dubrovnik. The architecture on show is unique with a mixture of Italian style infusing the authentic Croatian feel. The pebbly Lapad Beach is found very close by – and is a great place to spend a day or stretch your legs as you embark on a scenic stroll.
Grand Hotel Park offers two restaurants and two bars for guests to choose from. The main restaurant is a buffet-style eatery, while the Marijin Dvorac Tavern serves up incredible authentic dishes that give you a real taste for the area. There is an aperitif bar that’s perfect for a nightcap or two, while the convenient pool bar serves snacks and drinks throughout the day.
The hotel has a large outdoor pool surrounded by sun loungers, while the indoor pool can be found within a modern spa centre – which also includes a fitness area, tropical showers, saunas, and a hot tub. Other facilities include tennis courts, a playground, and an onsite shop.
Founded in the seventh century, the city of Dubrovnik has been restored and rebuilt numerous times – all the while preserving its charm and beauty. A myriad of cobbled streets weave around the romantic centre of Dubrovnik and serve as perfect extensions from the fortress and city walls, making it a perfect route to go on a full exploration of the city. A dedicated Game of Thrones-tour will take you to all the places used in the series, and during the summer season this walk is available from 11am until late afternoon.
The city’s cable car system is a must-see, carrying you up the steep sides of Mount Srd, you’ll be met with a panoramic view of the old city and surrounding area. During the months of summer, the cable-car service stays open until midnight, and you can watch the sun set over the Adriatic Sea. Exploration on foot should start at the colossus Fort Lovrijenac, before hanging out by Big Onofrio’s Fountain and finishing with a tour of Rector’s Palace. After a day spent wandering, you can retire to Banja Beach for a bit of sun-lounging.
