Sun Gardens Dubrovnik, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, is one of the best rated hotel in Dubrovnik and I couldn’t wait to explore this amazing five star beach resort. What is so unique about Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is the personal touch. Every single element seems like it has been curated and vetted to the extent that every experience there seems like you are in a pillow of comfort, midst of tranquility, and bathed in design. Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is located in a peaceful area only a 15 minute drive from the Old Town of beautiful Dubrovnik.
As soon as you walk into Sun Gardens Dubrovnik, you are welcomed with wonderful smiles. Staff made us feel home in just seconds and gave us all the information we needed to know about the hotel. I just couldn’t wait to explore and experience this place. The lobby area itself is spacious and very appealing. I love the fact that they do take their time to check-in their guests. There is no large check-in desk here, but separate desks where guests are welcomed in a very personal way. This definitely is the highlight at Sun Gardens Dubrovnik – the high level of personalized service!
Let’s start with the rooms.
Our Club Room was superbly comfortable, very clean and filled with all the right amenities for a relaxing holiday. All rooms are of a very high standard and offer views of the beach or gardens. The king sized beds are among the best I experienced. Another thing I really appreciated was the very comfortable small couch. The views on the balcony blew me away… The views of the Adriatic sea are just to die for. This is paradise!
The bathroom was beautifully tiled and contained many amenities, including a bath tub with rain shower combination. Fancy toiletries were a bonus, I am in love with those products. I guess it is all about the details and every single requested was suited. Just amazing!
Our room came with Club Lounge access and I definitely recommend to upgrade your room to a Club room. The Club Lounge is very luxuriously appointed. During the day you can order alcoholic, soft drinks and coffee. Each night, you can enjoy alcoholic beverages (premium brands) at your own convenience.
Every space of this hotel is clean, engaging and inspires you to focus on your well being. The spa is fantastic and is located on the ground floor of the hotel. The place is huge. It features a large indoor pool, an oversized jacuzzi and several types of saunas. A good equipped gym is available too.
The beach at Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is pretty large and the water of the Adriatic sea has this amazing blue color. It does look like paradise here! Sun Gardens Dubrovnik has several outdoor pools, all in front of the sea. We enjoyed all pools. Do note that there’s an adult only pool and another pool which is suitable for families with children.
Regarding the food and drinks, choices here are endless!
Sun Gardens Dubrovnik offers a wide variety of bar and restaurant settings from casual at the beach and pool to more formal for the evenings. We had a wonderful dinner at The Market, a sea food restaurant located on a beautiful location near the sea. Food here is outstanding and did not disappoint! The sea bass was among the best I have ever had. By the way, at night the resorts turns into a fairytale.
Origano is their international buffet style restaurant. This is also the place where they serve breakfast. Breakfast at Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is something to look forward to. One of the best buffets I have ever seen (and I’ve seen many!). I particularly enjoyed the cheese omelets and freshly baked pastries.
I am in love with Sun Gardens Dubrovnik! The biggest factor for me are the people who work at the resort. The resort is on par with some of the best hotels in the world which I have been fortunate enough to stay at. My senses were completely satisfied beyond anything I could imagine. We were treated like royalty here and cannot wait to return one day. A perfect place indeed!
