All travellers are different and their individual needs vary, but for those who decide to visit the Pearl of the Adriatic, a stay outside those famous city walls can provide a totally different experience and access to lesser-known destinations and projects having a positive impact on the local community. As tourists look for more from their holidays, the inclusion of an alternative destination and experience in addition to the main attraction is becoming increasingly popular.
Sun Gardens Dubrovnik offers the best of both worlds. Sufficiently detached from the buzz of the city to ensure a relaxing stay for its guests, the resort is extremely well connected to the Pearl of the Adriatic with a regular shuttle (no worries about parking), as well as connected to the wider region by means of car, boat and even helicopter. And while the magic of Dubrovnik old town is always just a few minutes away, a Sun Gardens Dubrovnik base offers a totally different experience and chance to get to know alternative destinations.
Perched on a hill below the historic village or Orasac, with architecture resembling a Mediterranean village, Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is located directly on the Adriatic sea overlooking the magical Elafiti islands, with inviting beaches awaiting your towel and company. The crystal clear waters of the Adriatic have long been famed as one of the world's most pristine, and the general swimming season runs from April to October.
The resort prides itself on its responsible business practices and community engagement which have a positive impact on the local community, and Sun Gardens Dubrovnik supports many local organisations through donations. A proud bearer of the Green Key Certificate, the resort also promotes clean energy through its Tesla destination chargers, and indeed hosted the 2019 Nikola Tesla EV Rally.
Authentic nature meets the healthy Mediterranean diet in the acres of olive trees to be found in the green gardens that are one of the trademarks of Sun Gardens Dubrovnik. Come in late October and take advantage of the chance to hand pick the olives which are turned into virgin olive oil and enjoyed by our guests throughout the year in the delicious dishes served in our numerous restaurants.
A visit inside the historic walls of Dubrovnik is the first thing on your list of things to do when visiting the region, but when planning your trip, think how experiencing an alternative destination with a different pace of life and access to the natural and authentic way of life can add to your holiday experience. Sun Gardens Dubrovnik offers the best of both worlds, and we are waiting for your visit.
