Croatia has been a hugely popular luxury holiday destination
here at Original Travel since we launched back in 2003, the same
year the country was rather grandly declared 'The 21st Century
Destination' by Conde Nast Traveller. The country is a rather cool
combination of glitz, glamour and tradition with undulating plains
of greenery and deep blue waters.
Whilst a hipster or two may flock to Croatia's mainland and
islands for popular music festivals, the country is also a great
luxury holiday choice for families, couples and sun seekers alike.
Aside from magnificent beaches, sailing opportunities, delicious
fresh food and fabulous hotels and resorts, there are historic
sites to explore the Country's turbulent past.
We pioneered sea
kayaking around the Elapahiti Islands off Dubrovnik and have
revisited several times as new regions, such as trendy island
hangout Hvar and gourmet haven Istria, are announced as the next
big thing on the Croatia luxury holiday scene.
Dubrovnik remains undeniably one of Europe's great
treasures, and the Dalmatian coastline as a whole - especially
when explored from a yacht - is very special indeed. We can
recommend all the finest hotels along the coast and on the many
islands, and arrange expertly guided kayak safaris and stylish and
reliable yacht rental from either Split or Dubrovnik.
Further afield, Istria is set to become a firm favourite thanks to its
Italianate influences (of the edible variety, particularly) and yet
more beautiful coastline, as well as quaint scenes of local
fishermen freeing their nets for a morning catch. A sunset should
also not be missed in the Croatian gem.
The Original Travel team have explored Croatia first hand and
can recommend all the finest luxury hotels along the coast, and
arrange anything from expertly guided kayak safaris to luxurious
and reliable yacht rental from either Split or Dubrovnik. Rest
assured, your Croatia luxury holiday will be one to remember.
