VIEWS OF THE ADRIATIC
Babin Kuk is the hotelier heart of Dubrovnik and somehow, three years ago and right in the shadow of the major hotel chains, probably the most luxurious hotel on the peninsula opened, which is owned by company Importanne. The hotel has had from the first swoosh of the doors a faithful clientele and is very well regarded on web portals. Among other things, guests appreciate the location directly on the coast with breath-taking sea views from almost every room. The rich Mediterranean garden with walking paths and viewpoints is a simply stunning feature.
The Old town of Dubrovnik is just 15 minutes away and the hotel is well connected to the city by public transport. Most guests arrive by car and there is a large car park in front of the hotel. Čilipi airport is 22km away and in the spring and autumn high congress season there is no problem with accessibility. The accessibility in the off-season is also gradually improving, as Dubrovnik is becoming an established flight destination. Around the town, there is also a really impressive network of trails for walking and cycling, which are well maintained and surrounded by rich Mediterranean vegetation.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The architectural design of the hotel was conceived and developed by architect Stipe Pašalić. It is defined by the terrain and location of the existing Importanne Resort hotel complex. The architects managed to fit this new hotel into this terrain and with its pavilion design, it appears airy and is unobtrusive in the space. Almost every room faces the sea, with utility rooms at less attractive points. The interior is full of glass surfaces, which give guests the feeling of airiness and spaciousness.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
The first contact with reception desk is extremely friendly and positive, an impression that extends throughout the stay, which is normal for a hotel of this category. The excellent staff is the key element that distinguishes this hotel from some of its Dubrovnik competitors. The hotel breakfast is rich and centred on fresh Mediterranean ingredients. On the lowest floor is ‘La Castille’ luxury restaurant, serving exquisite international cuisine with an excellent wine list and with a terrace for receptions for congress guests.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The hotel rooms are luxurious apartments and each includes a spacious, luxurious bathroom, a large balcony and a living room with a kitchenette. The interior is classically decorated and many of its details improve the wellbeing of guests. Selected materials are of high quality and provide a sense of prestige. The hotel has in a very short time became known for its congress tourism. The congress centre offers seven smaller meeting rooms from 35 to 50 participants and a large hall that can accommodate more than 500 participants. The hall is over 850m2 in size and fitted with all the latest equipment.
DESSERT – The extras
The rich offer is rounded off with a wellness centre with outdoor and indoor swimming pool and a large fitness zone.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Prices in Dubrovnik are occasionally very high and above the regional average. Choosing the right date is therefore particularly important.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Restaurant La Castille with its superb cuisine.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
Everything in the hotel is geared to the comfort of its congress guests. Each apartment and room seems to be tailor-made, which further enhances the feeling of luxury. Due to the large glass surfaces, it seems that the hotel blends seamlessly with the surrounding nature. The hotel operates throughout the year, which is a great advantage.
Importanne Resort is not just a new superior hotel, but also a synonym for superior service standards, which has almost no competition in its class. The hotel would be the perfect choice for the most demanding congress guest and it would certainly not leave congress guests feeling cold.
