At Butterfield & Robinson, our hotels aren’t prosaic—they’re pure poetry.

From castles and riads to ryokans and monasteries, we source lodgings that aren’t just places to crash, but one-of-a-kind spots as intimate, authentic and sublime as the rest of your journey—and packed with personal touches from our hotelier friends.

Below we’ve rounded up a few of the best luxury hotels in Croatia, where you can do so much more than simply rest your head.

But be warned: there may be tears when it’s time to say goodbye!

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.

At the water’s edge, and overlooking the old city, the Villa Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most exclusive and most awarded boutique hotel featuring an unprecedented level of luxury and style.

Its position on the cliffs above prestigious St. Jacob precinct makes it minutes from the Old City cultural landmarks and Dubrovnik attractions.

Park Hotel, Split

The Park Hotel in Split enjoys one of the best locations in the city—a mere five-minute walk from the old town and even less to the famous Bacvice beach.

A black marble, Art Deco-style bar greets guests as they enter the lobby. The elegance continues to the tastefully-designed, air-conditioned guest rooms, many of which boast views of the Adriatic.

Discover Hidden Croatia & Slovenia

Two neighbouring states in the former Yugoslavia will surprise you. Mountainous Slovenia is a breath of fresh air and UNESCO-rated natural wonders. Go deep into Croatia’s lesser-known Istrian region for white truffles, wine, and food to rival the best in the world on our Slovenia & Croatia Active Journey.


Regent Porto, Montenegro

The Regent Porto offers guests much to marvel at from its seat on the shores of the UNESCO-protected Boka Bay, with the mountains of Montenegro to its back.
