Enjoy the Adriatic in style at Villa Orsula in Dubrovnik
On the coast of Dalmatia, where the Adriatic Sea meets the shores of the city of Dubrovnik, the world began to discover the joys of the perfect Adriatic weather in 1897, when the first hotels were opened in the region. Since then, successive waves of vacationers and explorers have come to the luxurious villas that surround the city of Dubrovnik and its nearby neighbours on the sea. The new generation of luxury resorts led by the Adriatic Luxury Hotels group includes a number of grand boutique establishments, and one of the most beautifully situated of them is the Villa Orsula, only about a five-minute walk from the cobblestone streets and the red tile roofs of Old Dubrovnik Town, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
At Villa Orsula, almost every guestroom offers a view of the island of Lokrum in the shimmering bay. The terraces of the hotel are all beautifully designed for relaxing afternoon in the sun, and the hotel even offers a library for its guests beneath three large arches in the reception area. Many of the suites and rooms of the Villa contain the originally pointed arches that were first included in the original construction of the building. As is customary with many boutique estates in Mediterranean locales, the Villa is decorated in a series of creams and beiges, which moderate the bright sunshine, with dark and reddish woods providing elegant accents. And as befits a luxury establishment, the Villa Orsula will be glad to arrange bespoke tours of the region.
