The four-star Palace opened its doors in 2008 and has plans to open a spa. Over the bridge on Čiovo, a ten-minute walk from the centre, the Palace has 27 rooms, most with balconies, some with sea views, and 11 apartments, some of them huge. Disabled rooms and ample parking are welcome rarities in this part of the world and there is a bar and restaurant.
Trogir hotel options have more than doubled in the last five years so visitors can afford to pick and choose. Make sure that your room is well soundproofed, especially on the Riva. Also see that it has a decent amount of parking, a real problem in Trogir. You won’t have any issues at the stand-out Hotel Trogir Palace.
For tradition with modern comfort, away from the old town but in easy striking distance, the four rooms of Villa Moretti are just over the water, near Trogir’s ACI marina. The 200-year-old stone-floored building has been in the Moretti family since it was built and was financed from the fortunes amassed as sea traders. The large, well-equipped en-suite rooms open onto a terrace – charming hosts, plenty of history, great views across the water to Kamerlengo Castle, and plenty of space. There are some tempting reductions on offer for stays of over three nights.
This refurbished child-friendly spot has 132 rooms, most of them doubles with a sea view – children get a discount. There’s an open-air pool, a gym and a sauna. It’s a bus ride or 30mins from Trogir.
