The secrets of this exquisite stretch of coast are slowly being unlocked as discerning international travellers describe the Dubrovnik Riviera as one of the most magical, sun-soaked and unexploited corners of Europe.

A dramatic mountainous backdrop envelops the alluring historic coastline, creating a stunning travel destination, not overdeveloped but awash with charm.

Attracting growing numbers of holidaymakers, the Riviera, on the south coast of Croatia, offers sun, sea and culture. The white beaches are pristine and the city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage, is nearby for world-class culture, shopping and dining. Nature lovers will be enticed by the abundance of luscious parks and gardens brimming with Mediterranean herbs and plants.

To explore the Riviera, the Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel is the ideal base. A modern, refined and serene sanctuary, the elegant rooms boast exquisite views of the Adriatic. When not enjoying the vistas, guests can luxuriate in the refreshing spa and outdoor pool or get acquainted with the restaurant's food scene — outstanding restaurants with impressive wine cellars establish the hotel as a firm favourite among cultured travellers.

Other tempting options come from the Dubrovnik Riviera hotels portfolio, including the acclaimed Hotel Mlini and Villas Mlini, the charming Hotel Astarea and the spacious Villas and Apartments Srebreno.

Mlini's beautifully appointed rooms overlook the sea, but its true gem is the traditional stonewall Villa Jelić with its exquisite panoramic views and authentic, timeless glamour.

Guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor pools, spas, restaurants and grounds rich in cultural heritage and gastronomic delights, where warm, shallow, crystal waters are a calming backdrop. More adventurous travellers are catered for, too. They can partake in thrilling watersports, or get out and explore the coves, beaches and forested islands along this splendid coastline.
