A truly eye-catching hotel in on Croatia’s gorgeous coastline, the Rixos Premium Dubrovnik is a wonderful 5-star property overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Located by the sea, the hotel is a relaxing oasis absolutely made for a peaceful holiday. As well as having the ocean on its doorstep, the Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik is just 1.5 kilometres from Dubrovnik’s historic Old Town – which offers UNESCO World Heritage Sites, a mess of restaurants and cafés, and numerous photo opportunities.
The outdoor pool area is stunning with a large pool surrounded by sun loungers and parasols. Additionally, the main restaurant ‘Turquoise’ serves a mix of international and local cuisines for each meal. Guests can also expect Umi Teppanyaki, a fine dining Japanese restaurant open for dinner, and the Libertas Fish Restaurant which is open seasonally from mid-May to September. The Rixos Premium Dubrovnik has an indoor pool open all year round, as well as a well-appointed spa area with expert therapists, a beauty centre, and gym. There are yoga classes at the hotel, while aqua aerobics is also available seasonally.
Please note that the outdoor pool, bar, and restaurant are only open in summer seasons and close around October, dependent on weather.
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 11 am 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 sunset 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.
