History & Design
The origins of Villa Dubrovnik date to 1961 and the work of Croatian architect Mladen Frka, who devised a chic modernist residence on a rocky outcrop that was designed to become one with the landscape. In the 1980s, the site hosted its first hotel before undergoing an extensive renovation that was completed in 2010.
Efforts were made to preserve the structure’s sharp linear style. The gardens on the property and the stone beach at water’s edge were left intact, while the interiors were revamped in order to evoke a contemporary mood.
Guests arrive from above, greeted by a discreet glass elevator that brings them down to reception. The decor stresses natural and nautical themes and features white wood, light colors and magnificent white stone from the Croatian island of Brač.
