Our favourite rooms
The entire hotel feels like a secluded secret hideaway, and its spacious Arabia residence is the most intimate of its apartments: the predominantly white decor is as lovely as the 360-degree views of the blue Peljesac Channel and the neighbouring islands. The bells of the historic church nearby are rung every quarter of an hour, and can be heard quite clearly in the India and China residences.
Your beach kit. Don your flip flops to wander down to Korcula’s beaches, and throw on a sunhat for the boat ride over to the nearby islands – the hotel has its own handsome sailing boat, the Vipera, to take you island hopping in style.
This isn’t a traditional hotel: it’s a collection of self-contained, fully serviced apartments and an excellent restaurant and spa. There’s no lobby or other communal space; every residence has its own front door.
Welcome, but the hotel isn’t ideal for toddlers and young children: it’s best suited to babies or teens. Kids under three can sleep in baby cots in their parents’ rooms free; extra beds for those aged 3 or over are available for €30 a night.
