Original Travel has been in love with Croatia since we launched
back in 2003, with its rather cool combination of glitz, glamour
and tradition with undulating plains of greenery and deep blue
Whilst the younger 'summer-in-Europe' crowd flock to Croatia's
mainland and islands for popular music festivals, the country is
also a great luxury holiday choice for families, couples and
sun-seekers alike. The Croatia luxury holiday scene has something
for everyone - aside from magnificent beaches, sailing
opportunities, delicious fresh food and fabulous hotels and
resorts, there are historic sites aplenty to explore and cute
cobbled alleyways to get lost in.
We pioneered sea
kayaking around the Elapahiti Islands off Dubrovnik and have
revisited several times as new regions, such as trendy island
hangout Hvar and gourmet haven Istria, are announced as the next
big thing on the Croatia luxury holiday scene.
Dubrovnik remains undeniably one of Europe's great
treasures (although it can get very busy during peak season, we
still love sea kayaking around the nearby Elapahiti Islands), and
the Dalmatian coastline as a whole - especially when
explored from a yacht - is very special indeed with its azure
water, island-filled horizon and dramatic mountain backdrop.
To the north, gourmet-haven Istria is set to become a firm favourite thanks
to its Italianate influences (of the edible variety, particularly)
and yet more beautiful coastline, as well as quaint scenes of local
fishermen freeing their nets for a morning catch.
The Original Travel team have explored Croatia first hand and
can recommend all the finest luxury hotels along the coast, and
arrange anything from expertly guided kayak safaris to luxurious
and reliable yacht rental from either Split or Dubrovnik. Rest
assured, your Croatia luxury holiday will be one to remember.
