Iconic Property Re-Opens in Dubrovnik’s Historical Waterfront

Dubrovnik’s historical waterfront welcomes the re-opening of its celebrated property, Hotel Excelsior, following the exciting completion of an extensive refurbishment in summer 2017. Adriatic Luxury Hotels’ flagship property has been meticulously revamped with fresh, modern and elegant design that embodies Hotel Excelsior’s sophisticated yet welcoming feel.

The hotel unveils 158 beautifully redecorated rooms and suites featuring wooden floors, custom-made furniture, and a collection of carefully curated details. These rooms - spread across both the original 1913 residential part ‘Villa Odak’ and the hotel’s more recent extension ‘The Tower’ - have been completely transformed to offer guests a luxurious, stylish and comfortable hideaway in this picturesque and historic location.

Impressive floor-to-ceiling windows flood the newly-refurbished lobby with natural daylight, where warm wooden floors and bespoke furniture will welcome its guests daily. New works of art and sculpture, created especially for Hotel Excelsior, are the finishing touch to the new lobby and public areas.

The re-opening includes an exciting new addition to the property’s incredible gourmet offering – fine-dining restaurant Sensus - run by executive Chef Petar Obad. With a focus on seafood, Petar creates innovative dishes and elevates traditional Mediterranean cuisine with the freshest local produce and delicacies, paired with the finest Croatian wines. Boasting a superb outdoor space, guest can dine under the patio’s charming cobbled archways looking out onto the crystal blue sea.

The hotel’s centrepiece, the Abakus Piano Bar, has also been given a lift. As the heart and soul of Hotel Excelsior with an expansive outdoor lounge terrace that takes in the unparalleled views, the Abakus Piano Bar is the perfect hangout place for refreshing beverages throughout the day and night.

With a premium location on Dubrovnik’s oceanfront, just a stone’s throw away from the iconic ancient UNESCO heritage site, Hotel Excelsior is looking forward to retaining its place as one of Croatia’s leading luxury hotels.
