With their pristine beaches, out-of-this-world landscapes and intriguing cities, Croatia and Montenegro are fast climbing up the “places to go” list with savvy travellers. When it comes to luxurious holidays in Croatia and Montenegro, you won’t be disappointed either. With coastal hotels complete with stunning views, rural escapes in the picturesque mountains, and city retreats close to the heart of the action, there’s something to tickle every fancy.
If the mood takes you, you can explore both the wonders of Croatia and the petite and perfectly formed beauty of Montenegro in one trip. By bus from Dubrovnik, Croatia’s capital, it’s just an hour and a half to Montenegro. But with so much to do and see in both locales, you’ll do well to spend a decent amount of time in both destinations.
While in Croatia make sure to explore the heady historic sights of Dubrovnik. The old city is a listed UNESCO World Heritage site, with its ancient walls and curiously winding streets. There’s always something to do and see, with open air concerts and theatre productions regularly taking place to a backdrop of the atmospheric old city, and luxury hotels like Villa Orsula Dubrovnik give you a heightened sense of the city’s old-world glamour.
Similar cultural and historic delights can be found in other cities across the country, including Split and Zadar. Or if chilling out is your main aim, you can slip away to the craggy and astoundingly beautiful Adriatic Coast. Here, in hotels like Hotel Monte Mulini you can soak up the ambience of the country’s laid-back coastal towns.
Outdoor pursuits are big news in both Croatia and Montenegro, with visitors indulging in anything from kayaking to scuba diving, mountain biking and rock climbing. With such an array of captivating sights on the edge of every horizon, the pull to get out there and experience it all will work its magic on you in next to no time.
For a more relaxing time, settle onto a sun-soaked beach on Montenegro’s untouched coastline, or stroll through ancient villages like Kotor perched on the country’s cliff sides, sampling food and delicacies at eateries along your way. When it comes to finding that perfect place to lay your head, get the full experience at places like Regent Porto Montenegro, set in the UNESCO listed Boka Bay.
Both Croatia and Montenegro are ideal getaway destinations for families, curious solo travellers and couples looking for the ultimate romantic backdrop. From world listed heritage sites to swathes of green, mountainous landscapes and enticing beaches, you can find your perfect spot with ease.
