What We Love
- A half-board stay at an elegant base near the harbour of Vela LukaSampling the local delicacy of peka; slow-roasted meats prepared to perfection
- Opting to take a relaxing walk along the stunning private beach
- Forgetting all your worldly worries with an essential oil massage at the wellness centre
What To Know
- The hotel runs a shuttle boat to and from their beach (Azzurro—on the other side of the bay) every half-hour
- Relax between the hotel's two saunas, fitness center, and Kneipp (water therapy) pool
- Free WiFi
Dotting the southern Dalmatian coast, some of Croatia’s most decorous Adriatic islands invite you to slow right down – as much to take in their medieval towns, serene sandy coves and mouthwatering delicacies (like dry white Posip and makaruni pasta), as falling victim to their famously chilled-out vibe.
Swathed by fragrant olive groves and vineyards, one of the greenest and seductive Dalmatian isles is Korcula. On its western shores, in the pretty port town of Vela Luka, the four-star Hotel Korkyra oozes class and distinction. You’re perfectly set for an ultra-relaxing stay; from the sky-blue pool, private beach and upscale wellness centre, straight through to the chic restaurant and minimalist-inspired bar. All that this recently renovated hotel is lacking is a tanned, carefree and utterly laid-back you, quite frankly.
How to Get There
Although my stay at hotel Korkyra was a short one I was very pleased. The hotel is beautiful both from the outside and the inside. The location is also perfect as the hotel is placed at the center of town with everything you might need easily accessible. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made my stay there even more pleasant. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and there is something for everyone.
All in all I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
I've got to say that rooms are really clean, nicely set up and very innovative shower next to the bed. Even though we were the only guests in april, i had one of the best breakfasts thanks to kind waitress. Food is great and i like the fact that products are made in Croatia. Too bad gym and pool were out of order and i didnt like the juice from the machine...there are so many domestic juice producers.
Although my stay in the hotel was not very long, I really liked the hotel Korkyra and Vela Luka. The hotel is is beautiful, nice and tidy. The breakfast is also great - so many choices and the food was really tasty. I find the hotel ideal for a family vacation or with a group of friends. I would recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Vela Luka. I hope I'll have more opportunities to visit this small picturesque town and stay in the hotel Korkyra.
Nice hotel with a beautiful view,
friendly people, very tasty food.The room is clean and modern, like the shower which is in glass so you can see the whole room if you are taking a shower.I also enjoyed their domestic food which I recommend,
They really take care of their guests.
By far, the best hotel on the island.Since Vela Luka has a port for ferry boats from Split, is was really easy getting there and the hotel was just walking distance from the port.We visited a lot of small places and beaches during our stay,Korcula was too crowded and we did not really liked it,so Vela Luka was the perfect for us.The hotel is located in town center, the room was quite spacious for a single room, and we had a nice view on the pool and local stone houses and narrow streets.The hotel itself is very modern,it has everything a couple need on a vacation...The gym and spa came in really convenient, we enjoyed a few cocktails on the pool...The hotel staff was fantastic,really friendly and professional at the same time.The reception staff gave us directions, have everything explained and even drawn onto a map,they answered all our questions with great patience.We had clean towels every day to carry with us on the beach,the hotel has organized boat trips to town beach or Proizd island.The Proizd is a story itself-out of this world beaches.The waiters were also really kind and professional.The food in the hotel was delicious,the breakfast was the buffet to suit all tastes, and we could choose from a variety of meals to order from the kitchen.I really liked that dinner was also with few choices,and I really liked the traditional dishes.Overall food really met our expectations.Everything in fact made our expectations and I really recommend this hotel. It made our stay a delight,we could see the best of island,which I don't think it could be possible if we did not stayed there.
