Dubrovnik Sun Gardens

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Ten kilometres north of town, sprawling across the seafront just below the pleasingly rustic village of Orašac, this former Radisson partner property is now under the umbrella of the Leading Hotels of the World. A self-contained resort with a rocky beach, it has wonderful views, well-tended gardens and pretty much everything you need for a hassle-free vacation. A cluster of bars and eateries around the forum-like ‘Market Place’ augment the main hotel restaurants, and there is a huge range of beauty treatments on offer at the spa centre. Accommodation is in immaculate hotel rooms or in ‘residences’: apartments ranging in size from one-bedroom to three-bedroom family affairs with kitchenette. The only possible drawback is location: public transport from Orašac to Dubrovnik is far from ideal (especially at night), and the shuttle boats and buses offered by the hotel don’t run that often out of season.
