Clinging onto the cliff face, this sleek hotel sits 30 metres above the crystalline waters of the Adriatic and offers guests cinematic views from every angle. Just a short walk from the main entrance to Dubrovnik's old town and above its own private Miramare Bay, the Bellevue is the perfect place to kick back and relax, while also acts as an excellent launchpad from which to explore the surrounding area.
After a room with a view? The strategic cliffside location means the Bellevue offers some of the best views in Croatia. Take your pick from 91 airy guest rooms decorated in neutral colours, each with spectacular vistas of the sparkling bay below. More expensive options go that one step further and come complete with a private balcony overlooking the water.
Whats for breakfast?
Begin the day the right way with an extensive selection of breakfast dishes, either made to order or picked from the vibrant buffet - all enjoyed from the breezy veranda over looking the cobalt-blue sea, of course.
How about lunch and dinner?
All the hotel's restaurants have that view but the hotel's signature restaurant, Vapor, has been voted one of the best restaurants in Croatia . Expect typical Dalmatian food with a modern twist and an impressive wine list to top it off. As for lunch, if walking up the steps in the midday sun is too much, stay put at beach restaurant Nevera, where you can tuck into fresh fish and oysters from the nearby town of Ston.
Is there a bar?
Yes, the Spice Bar is pretty breathtaking at sunset; start the night as you mean to go on with a sun-downer cocktail on the terrace.
Breakfast included, complimentary wifi, childcare services, dry-clean/laundry service, spa and wellness centre, indoor pool, fitness centre and free parking.
Things you should know
If you're travelling light forget your washbag and take full advantage of the L'Occitane-stocked bathrooms. Don't expect a huge gym, instead get your fitness fix in the freshwater pool which overlooks the bay.
Within a short walk you can find…
Just a 15-minute walk (or quick bus ride) along the coast you will find Dubrovnik's picturesque old town, now a UNESCO heritage site and well worth visiting. It's a good place to wander through in no specific direction, getting lost in the winding streets. Before you head off, however, get an overall idea of the layout by catching a cable car up to the top for a bird's eye view of the town (and some mandatory holiday snaps). If this isn't enough, Game of Thrones fans can take a boat tour on the same ship used in filming King's Landing (with insider gossip included).
