Villa Argentina

5* out of 5 stars

Discerning guests discover this five-star retreat just ten-minutes from Ploce Gate in Dubrovnik’s red-roofed Old Town. Arriving at Villa Argentina is akin to stepping foot in a royal palace or renaissance manor house - no wonder the buzzwords round here are regal charm and traditional luxury. It’s a world of garden terraces and ancient ruins tucked into the slopes of a pine forest mountain, hugging the outcrops that face the Adriatic along the Dalmation coastline. There’s a private beach, deluxe spa, restaurant and piano bar. Rooms range from Classic to Executive arranged between Villa Argentina itself and sister property Hotel Argentina, and feature charming views.

Indeed, stunning scenery attends guests’ every moment at Villa Argentina, such is its strategic cliffside position. Whether you’re cooling off in the outdoor saltwater pool, basking on the beach, dining al fresco or reading in the wild orange garden, there’s always a new perspective from which to take in the hotel’s jaw-dropping surroundings. Look out for landmarks such as the city’s picturesque old harbour or Lokrum Island.

And it’s all bathed in that famous Mediterranean climate, just perfect for a revitalising break in the sun. Add to this the full pampering service offered by Villa Argentina’s ‘energy clinic’ spa – all jacuzzi whirlpools, indoor swimming, body scrubs and wellness rituals – and your opportunity to completely relax amid this scenic paradise is complete.
