Rixos Premium Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Resembling a regal ocean liner rising into the forested cliffs above a vivid blue bay, Rixos Premium Dubrovnik offers top-flight luxury that's only a 20-minute walk from Dubrovnik Old Town. This sleek, sprawling five-star resort dates from 1971 but its 310 rooms were given a major makeover in 2020. Built around a central light-filled atrium whose bars are adorned with original art, it's stylish and sophisticated but has a relaxed air. The facilities are superb: an enormous waterfront deck has two pools, water sports and a rocky beachfront which go alongside an excellent spa, indoor pool, several boutiques and Dubrovnik's only casino. Dining is just as impressive, with options including a sushi bar and a fish restaurant, and summertime brings live DJ sets and jazz concerts.
Step off the main road and down the stone staircase, it leads to a waterside footpath and another secluded beach.
Bellevue beach is practically on your doorstep, while Dubrovnik's Old Town is only a 15-minute walk from the resort.
By plane: direct flights from London to Dubrovnik take 2 hours 30 minutes. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport. Free parking available. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
Guests run the gamut from discerning families loving the huge range of facilities to holidaying couples and business travellers. Tucked away discreetly behind glass screens in the atrium are two pool tables, adding a playful vibe. The patisserie serves wonderful cakes.

The Corner Suite had an extraordinarily large terrace big enough for a party. Like the other suites it comes with a whirlpool bath. Nothing beats lying on a sunlounger on the terrace, watching the sun go down over the Adriatic.
