A guest room at Villa Orsula in Dubrovnik, Croatia


Villa Orsula

A private villa built in 1939 overlooking the Adriatic Sea, this exceptional hotel enchants guests. On its walls you will find beautiful paintings of Dubrovnik's Old Town, reflecting the very views out the windows between the artwork. Intimacy is assured with just eleven guest rooms and two suites, all done in a subdued, soothing style. While this property has much to offer, its most appealing amenities are the vistas seen from Victoria Restaurant, the al fresco bar, the private beach and the gardens adorned with wild orange trees — wherever you turn you will be reminded why this is one of the city's most coveted hotels.
