Dubrovnik President Valamar Collection 

A classic seaside resort, reimagined

Appealing to couples and families alike, this modern seafront hotel is perfect for combining a beach break with visits to Dubrovnik.

When this hotel was built in the 1970s, it claimed a prime spot on the Lapad peninsula, overlooking the Elaphiti Islands and perfectly oriented for superb sunset views. Today, the architecture has been fully updated, ensconcing a large modern hotel with plenty of facilities, including a spa, a collection of restaurants, and a pebble beach from where guests can try watersports and underwater photography. And while parents will enjoy the sun-drenched terraces and luxury touches here, kids can’t fail to be totally bowled over by the massive Maro World, a children’s wonderland of soft play, playgrounds, smart toys and gaming, and trampolines.

Why we love Dubrovnik President Valamar Collection

  • The hotel is around 15 minutes from the historic heart of Dubrovnik, so an ideal choice if you’re looking to blend a beach break with day trips.

  • All the rooms here have a sea view and a furnished balcony for your first coffee of the day or sundowners in the evening.

  • It’s a fantastic option for families with the huge Maro World, free to guests, just a short walk away.

  • There are excellent underwater exploration opportunities from the well-equipped dive centre on the hotel’s beach.
