Why We Love This Hotel

  • Stunning views of the Adriatic Sea & the Old Town from every floor
  • It’s a scenic 10-minute coastal walk from the Old Town
  • The hotel is a favourite with celebrities & royalty
  • Set on a private beach with a pretty sun terrace


Set on the cliffside overlooking the Adriatic Sea, the luxurious Excelsior has panoramic views of Dubrovnik and the pine-clad Croatian island of Lokrum from every floor. The hotel counts royalty and film stars among the many guests who have stayed over its 100-year history, from Queen Elizabeth II to Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Sir Roger Moore.

From the private beach, it’s a 10-minute walk along the coast to Ploče Gate, the eastern entrance to the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel can arrange private yacht trips to Mljet National Park, “one of the most seductive of all the Adriatic islands”, according to Lonely Planet. Back at the Excelsior, there’s a spa with an indoor pool and Jacuzzi tubs, plus a hair salon.

The hotel has three fine-dining restaurants, all with ocean views. The waterside Prora Beach Restaurant specialises in Dalmatian seafood and overlooks the Old Town, while the Salin Restaurant has a sea-view terrace where a buffet breakfast is served. The Abakus Piano Bar and Restaurant -- also located on the expansive terrace -- offers cocktails and light snacks, as well as a Thai Table that serves Thai specialities each evening.

The modern bedrooms feature Croatian art and dark wood furnishings. All have free Wi-Fi, mini bars and flat-screen TVs with cable channels. Luxurious touches include 24-hour room service, nightly turndown service and bathrobes and slippers. Superior and Deluxe Rooms have Old Town views, and Deluxe Rooms have balconies, as do all of the 17 suites.
