Their interiors inspired artist Srećko Žitnik to create a story – story about authentic flora of the Mediterranean as it once was.

Each of the luxuriously equipped suites features kitchen, where you can have fun preparing Mediterranean specialties by following recipes in old Dalmatian cookbooks.

Living room, that features satellite TV, wireless internet and telephone, is reserved for those moments when you want to hear the news from the outer world.

There are, of course, bedroom and bathroom for the moments of rest and refreshment.
The most beautiful sight are certainly hotel terraces, where, we believe, you will spend unforgettable moments of your vacation observing garden sculptures, lightened by the colours of the Mediterranean's most beautiful sunset.

Besides luxury suite accommodation, we offer accommodation in superior guestrooms, which also open their island soul to everybody who wants to find a moment of relaxation between their walls.

Artist Srećko Žitnik graduated from the art school in the class of Professor Ivan Krstulović, and he presented his painting skills at the exhibitions in his country, but also throughout the World, from India, Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany all the way to the faraway America.

Viniculture in Croatia has a long tradition, primarily thanks to favorable geographical position and climate. The most famous cultivar in Dalmatia is indigenous Plavac mali. Its main characteristic is the high level of alcohol and sugar and respectable amount of tannins. The best vineyards of Plavac mali are on the islands Brač and Hvar, and on peninsula Pelješac. Among other red dalmatian wines, the most prominent are Dingač and Postup from the peninsula Pelješac and Babić from Primošten, and among white wines, the most significant are Pošip and Grk from the island Korčula, Maraština from the island Lastovo and Kujundžuša, typical wine grape variety and the most famous wine from the region of Imotski. Of course, we mustn’t omit Prosecco, an extraordinary sweet dessert wine. Among other wines produced in Croatia, the most noted are Riezling, Malvazia, Žlahtina and Traminac, which was served at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Illyrians knew the grapevine in this region far back in the Bronze Age. However, the real development of viniculture in central Dalmatia is associated with the establishment of the first Greek colonies on the islands, and with the arrival of the Romans to this region, viniculture and winemaking were significantly upgraded. It is assumed that even the Emperor Diocletian didn’t only enjoy the wine, but was also dealing with gardening and grapevine cultivation.

After they had arrived and had settled in Dalmatia, the Croats accepted grapevine cultivation, and very soon exceeded the Romans, their teachers. With the emersion of phylloxera in the 19th century, a dangerous pest of grapevines in European vineyards, interest for the Dalmatian wines increased, which resulted in beginning of their major export to France and other countries. However, when the blight affected the grapevines in central Dalmatia, there was a mass destruction of vineyards. The most difficult period in the history of Dalmatian viniculture was even deteriorated by the so-called wine stipulation, i.e. privileged import of Italian wines. Since the 1990s, the new foundations for further development of vineyards have been generated, primarily in the family cellars, which have become the main development mover along with the wineries.

Dalmatian wines made out of grape varieties that were originated in this area have been highly rated since ancient times, because the adaptation to the soil and climate resulted in much better quality of wine obtained from the indigenous grape varieties, than from the new coming. The famous explorer Marco Polo, the Hungarian king Béla IV, Franz Joseph I of Austria, and more recently U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Pope John Paul II, all enjoyed in Dalmatian wines, as well as numerous crowned heads in many countries, where they were exported.
