Croatia Croatia Bespoke

Perfectly preserved

Croatia is one of the best ecologically preserved parts of Europe. As such, we suggest you visit the land’s multiple museums, galleries, churches and more of its truly rare European landscape—which contains as many as eight national parks in close-quarters. Indulge in local cuisine (freshly caught fish, pasta, olives and the juiciest tomatoes) and further discover the land that was once a playground to Roman Emperors. Croatia looks and feels like a fairy tale. Only here, no damsel needs rescuing.

Feature Hotels

Andjeo, Split

Your unique accommodations are aboard a luxurious four-cabin gulet, the Andjeo. Sailing under the Croatian flag, this all-wooden vessel is nimble enough to venture into those coves and ports that larger ships are unable to access. The attentive service of its four-person crew allows one to relax and enjoy the journey. Simply put, there's no better way to travel.

Vestibul Palace, Split

Created from three separate palaces spanning three different eras, this luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the 1700 year old Diocletian's palace has seven unique rooms and provides guests the experience of sleeping in an emperor's chambers. Located in the heart of Split, this hotel is steps from Saint Duje Bell Tower, Diocletian's Palace and Split Cathedral. View hotel website »
