THE NEW YORK TIMES: ‘Croatian Island Hotel in Top 10 Hotels in Europe That Make You Feel at Home List

Croatia72With summer fast approaching and the tourist season about to get into full swing in Croatia, international media attention is very much welcome, and it does not get much bigger than being featured in The New York Times

The winner of 114 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organisation, The New York Times is one of the biggest websites in the world, and this week a Croatian hotel managed to make one of their ‘top’ lists.

Lešić Dimitri Palace, a luxury hotel located on the island of Korčula in southern Dalmatia, has made The New York Times top 10 Hotels in Europe That Make You Feel at Home. Great promotion for the hotel, the island and Croatia.


Built in the 18th century as the bishop’s palace in the heart of medieval Korcula, on an island in the Adriatic midway between Dubrovnik and Split, the Lesic Dimitri Palace has five apartment-like suites. Ranging from one to three bedrooms, they include kitchens and are each decorated after a different Marco Polo-inspired destination: Venice, India, China, Arabia and Ceylon. On the edge of the walled town of tiny lanes and terra-cotta-tiled houses, the hotel offers views of the sea, and its restaurant features seating on a terrace atop the walls, is how The New York Times described Lesic Dimitri Palace.
