Enjoying a wide seascape and stunning sunsets, at the opening to Lapad Bay, this 1970’s Brutalist concrete structure (refurbished in 2014) is built into a hillside with a series of sea-view terraces. Set in grounds graced by fragrant pines and pink-flowering oleander, it has two outdoor pools, rock-and-concrete bathing areas, and a scuba-diving centre.  

 On chilly days, retreat to the magnificent rooftop spa with an indoor sea-view pool and gym, then at dinner, feast on the Fisherman’s Pot signature dish and fine wine at the Maslina taverna. For sightseeing, a regular public bus runs to Dubrovnik’s old town. 

Surrounding Area

Lapad Peninsula, where most of Dubrovnik’s big, modern waterside hotels are located, is well connected to the old town by public buses (running direct to Pile Gate).  

Although Lapad does get quite busy with tourist traffic in peak season, Hotel Dubrovnik Palace is tucked away from the bustle, looking onto the sea and backed by the pinewoods of Petka hill.
