Korčula Makes Forbes Top 10 Most Romantic Exotic Island Hideaways

Croatia72The Southern Dalmatian island of Korčula and the boutique Lešić Dimitri Palace hotel have made Forbes Magazine’s Top 10 Most Romantic Exotic Island Hideaways for 2015

Korcula is where the Silk Road began, home to Marco Polo. The explorer inspired the Asian-Croatian team of designers who conceived this luxury bolt-hole in the heart of the old town. They filled the five suites in this restored 18th-century palace with the kinds of sumptuous articles Polo would have traded. Terraces overlook the Adriatic Sea, and service, food and wine are up to Relais & Châteaux standards – wrote Forbes, which is one of the most read magazines in the world.

Korčula and Lešić Dimitri Palace was joined in the Top 10 by Yemaya Island Hideaway, on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua, Laucala Island, Fiji, Rubondo Island Camp, Lake Victoria, Tanzania, Petit St. Vincent, the Grenadines, Casa Harb, on San Andrés Island, Colombia, Tikehau, French Polynesia, Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand, Fernando de Noronha, Brazil and One&Only Hayman Island, in the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
