Milanovic expressed satisfaction that the Turkish company chose Croatia for its investments.

The Sibenik investment is worth EUR 25 million.

“Croatia is a small country but its tourist numbers bring it right to the top,” Milanovic said adding that with a population of 4.5 million Croatia is annually visited by 13 million tourists.

With interiors of pure white concrete, glass and wood, D-Resort Šibenik makes an ultra stylish statement on the crystal blue Croatian coast. And whilst the area retains its natural and unspoiled beauty, in terms of design, D-Resort Šibenik is set to be one of the most sophisticated hotels in Croatia, with simple lines and quality materials incorporated into a very natural Mediterranean landscape.

The 63 rooms, 6 suites and 3 Exclusive Villas are smart and elegantly dressed with an extraordinary attention to detail – all part of ensuring that comfort is paramount, and nearly all offer utterly stunning sea views. The Exclusive Villas are incredibly spacious at over 1,600 square feet, decorated with minimalist Italian furnishings, two spacious en suite bedrooms, living and dining room, private terrace with dining table, and sunbeds. There are four bars and lounges sprinkled around the hotel: The Hotel Roof Exclusive Lounge, Yacht Club Bar, The Pool Bar which is located in the main pool area and the Lobby Bar. The hotel’s top floor restaurant offers panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and Šibenik Old Town.

D-Resort Šibenik is easy to reach because of its close vicinity to the airport as well as transportation links. It lies only 6 km away from the A1 highway and the closest airports Split and Zadar are only 40 minutes. Arriving by boat is also optional; D-Resort Šibenik is located in the heart of D- Marin Mandalina 43˚ 43.0 ‘N and 15 ˚ 54.0’E, or 0.2 Nm 120 ° NE from the entrance canal of St. Ante.

Pearly white façade of D-Resort Šibenik is especially interesting as it is entirely imprinted with wooden planks.
