Minimalist Mediterranean sleep within easy reach of half-moon bays and Dubrovnik, with a seaside swimming pool and rooftop bar

The Lowdown

If the modern Croatian suburb of Lapad—roughly three miles from Dubrovnik’s ancient walls—seems like a curious setting for a freshly overhauled Mediterranean sleep, it’s time to think again. A stay at this peninsular retreat put you within arm’s reach of the restorative, blue-green waters of the Adriatic. The sea remains a scenic focal point throughout this airy and contemporary property, highlighted through floor-to-ceiling windows, a waterside swimming pool (adjacent to the Energy Clinic wellness spa, with a Finnish sauna), and the hotel’s earthy interior palette, which recalls the area’s countless pebble beaches. Though the luxury in guest rooms is elegantly understated (heated floors; L’Occitane bath products), the public spaces aren’t nearly as restrained: massive moon-like lampshades line the boulevard-level breakfast lounge, while a host of cushy ergonomic armchairs can be found scattered throughout the sun-drenched property. The showstoppers here are a trio of bars—strategically perched poolside, beachfront, and on the roof—to ensure you won’t wander too far from this sensational seafront sanctum.

In the Area

Don’t miss a leisurely stroll along Lapad’s renowned promenade, lined with gelato stalls, charming cafés, and trails that lead to clandestine beaches. It begins at the hotel and stretches for about 1.5 miles. A 15-minute bus ride will land you in Dubrovnik’s pedestrian-only Old Town, once home to the world’s largest merchant naval fleets. These days, its streets, though rife with medieval remnants, are also chock-full of seafood restaurants and world-class museums. For the ultimate view, hop on a three-minute cable car ride to the top of Mount Srdj and take in a breathtaking panorama of the city’s copious clay roofs.

Clean, comfortable room. Perfect view from the balcony. Amazing view from the lobby bar on the top floor. We stayed here for three nights it was worth every coin. A little problem with parking but with so many guests it can be considered normal. Very friendly staff. Congratulations!

Nice hotel :-)

A very nice hotel with perfect location. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby which is great, you have many possibilities. Rooms were spotless and very nicely furnished. Staff cares of you and smiles all the time. I recommend.

Highlight of our trip!

This was one of my favourite hotel experiences and a highlight of our trip back in July. We loved the pool area, though there are not many sunbeds so it is best to get down to the pool early to grab one. Great staff, all of which were very friendly and helpful. We were impressed with food served in the hotel. Buffet breakfast had a great choice of food, and the pool grill was exceptional especially the staff member serving as every day he would always have a new joke to tell us! The location is spot on, with it being just a short bus ride into Old Town. There are plenty of nice bars and restaurants right outside the hotel and a beach area for hotel guests to use. It's clear to see why this hotel is in the top 10 in Dubrovnik!

My wedding

Stayed here with family for my wedding in August. Location was fantastic, staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Everyone helped to make my day unbelievably special. I cannot thank you all enough, we had the best day.
Room was excellent and spotless, bar was well stocked, breakfast was a very good choice, beach area right outside and we never struggled for a bed. Cannot fault the kompas, we will be back next year 😁

Lovely hotel, polite & helpful staff, amazing views of sunset

I can't fault our stay at all. We did pay for a superior room with a balcony & the "romance package" so I can't say what a regular room would be like. Ours was well appointed and vey clean. It's certainly worth paying for a room with a balcony & a view as the sunsets are amazing. The room was quiet and we never heard any noise at all. The staff are friendly & knowledgeable & speak very good English. We at breakfast in our room every day as that was part of our package so we never used the dining area. We did use the outdoor pool one day but none of the other facilities as we were out each day sight seeing. We took Ubers to Dubrovnik each time we went in as they were cheap & easy to use but there is a water taxi service - sadly the day we decided to use it there had been a very bad storm the night before and the boats were not sailing due to high winds and rough waters.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Dubrovnik but looking to stay out of the old town in a more quiet area.
