Dubrovnik, often described as the pearl of the Mediterranean, is a beautiful city. Your journey starts at Villa Dubrovnik which is the perfect spot to relax, unwind and soak up the Croatian sunshine. Located on the coast, the hotel offers stylish accommodation with beautiful views back over to the old city. Your days can be spent relaxing by the clear waters or pool, taking the complimentary boat into the town for a stroll and then finishing the day off perfectly with a Sundowner in the cool surroundings of the hotel's Sky Bar.
Your stay could include a half day or full day private cruise taking in the Elaphite Islands. Your driver will pick you up at the hotel and take you to Marina Komolac where your yacht is anchored. The Elaphite Islands, situated to the North of Dubrovnik are Daksa, Kolocep, Sv. Andrija, Lopud, Ruda, Šipan, Jakljan, Tajan and Olipa. Your journey takes in the inhabited islands of Kolocep, Lopud and Šipan. As well as exploring the islands, take advantage of having your own private yacht and drop the anchor and enjoy a refreshing dip! Ask your travel consultant about this and other inland or waterborne excursions from Dubrovnik.
During your day you will be able to see ruins of former patrician summer residences that are scattered along the island’s wooded slopes. In the small fishing village and harbor of Sudjuradj on the south east coast of Sipan, you will explore a fortified house which was originally used to protect the inhabitants of this now quiet peaceful location from pirate attacks in 16th century. You will also have the opportunity to visit a special monument of renaissance architecture from 16th century and taste homemade donuts and local brandies. Your day finishes with a typical Dalmatian dinner in one of the best restaurants on Sipan.
Your final destination is the stunningly beautiful coastline of Montenegro. At Aman Sveti Stefan your stay will be in one of the original fisherman's cottages on this small island. The accommodation has been sympathetically renovated while including the luxuries you expect from Aman. Here you can explore the grounds of the property, including 2 further beaches as well as Villa Milocer which is perfect for a drink, lunch or dinner. Finish your trip with a dinner at the Queen's Seat which has the most spectacular views of the coastline. Make sure you are in time for the sunset which is stunningly beautiful and the perfect end to your stay.
