The Silk Road Experience at Lesic Dimitri Palace

Croatia offers travellers a vast history, rich heritage, and gorgeous landscapes. Throughout its island speckled coast, the influences of the silk road and its trading systems are evident and numerous. On the island of Korcula, near the Peljesac peninsula, a stunning walled city emerges from the land. Terracotta roofs and medieval architecture are that much more spectacular when surrounded by the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea. In this time forgotten town of Korcula, rests the magnificent Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel.

A Patrician Palace

Korcula’s most famous resident, Marco Polo, lived in the home next door to what is now the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel. It is rumoured that this small island was the original embarkation of the famed explorer’s silk road journey. As such, the town has seen a multitude of cultural influence through trade and travel. The Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel, once an 18th century Bishop’s Palace, epitomizes the true nature of the Dalmatia Islands.

The 5 residences at the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel provide guests with their own private floor within the palace walls. Each is themed and decorated to reflect an important trade stop on Marco Polo’s silk road expedition. Highlighting the regions of Ceylon, Arabia, China, India, and Venice, each space offers handcrafted furnishings as well as modern amenities. All of these elegantly appointed suites have their own kitchens and dining areas, for independent use or for the use of the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel’s chefs. The subtle cultural influences viewed in each guest residence are far from cliché, in fact, they pay respectful homage to the places and peoples whose ideas helped to mould Korcula into such a desired destination.

Renew and Repast Around the World

Extending the multicultural philosophy of the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel further, the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel Spa provides exceptional treatments and therapies using techniques from the silk road, in addition to the Mediterranean and Thailand. Those guests wishing to discover a new level of peace will enjoy the yoga classes provided by a local master, with group or individual sessions. For a truly indulgent experience, allow one of the talented therapists to give you a Thai Massage or even the India Touch Massage.

Dining at the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel offers more than a gourmet meal, but an epicurean adventure along the silk road. Guests may enjoy a repast in their private residence, with a bespoke menu, or they may wish to dine at the Lesic Dimitri Palace Restaurant. Both options offer the most delicious local ingredients combined with unparalleled imagination and creativity. For the consummate gourmand, a seat at the coveted chef’s table will fulfil many gastronomic fantasies. Guests will also delight in the wine and food tastings which showcase the many local varietals produced in Croatia.

Croatia is an intricate country with a strong sense of cultural heritage and patriotism. The Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel, with its prominent position in the Dalmatia Islands provides the opportune destination for experiencing Korcula’s many events and festivals. When guests are immersed in the opulent luxury of this boutique establishment, they are effortlessly transported back to the silk road and its many wonders.
