Epidaurus Hotel

Epidaurus Hotel is right on the beach just 1km from Cavtat, making it perfect if paddling and sand-castle building are your thing. If you’d rather sunbathe sand free, the sea-view pool offers the perfect compromise. The hotel has family rooms and caters to children by providing a children’s buffet corner which has its own pizza and pasta station. So the kids will be happy while you choose from Croatian and international dishes served in the modern buffet restaurants. While the children have fun at the kid’s clubs, indulge in a couple of treatments at Spa Sensations.

Overview of Dubrovnik Riviera

If you want a beach break with the wow factor, consider holidays to Croatia. The Dubrovnik Riviera, also known as the Dalmatian region, is a stunning part of Croatia’s southern coast offering lazy beach days and the option of day trips. Charming resorts such as Cavtat, where Epidaurus Hotel is situated, offer abundant seaside charm, while the capital Dubrovnik is ideal for sightseeing and shopping. For a more nature-filled holiday, go hiking and walking through its national parks – and take a picnic with you. A highlight is a day at Plitvice Lakes.

Things to do in Cavtat

Take a leisurely 20-minute stroll from the Epidaurus Hotel to explore all Cavtat has to offer. With an old town on one side and beaches on the other, this resort has plenty to keep you busy. Along its tree-lined promenade, there’s a good selection of restaurants if you fancy some traditional Croatian fare. Explore the old town to discover the 15th-century church of St Nicholas. Vlaho Bukovac House, a museum dedicated to the works of this acclaimed Croatian painter, is also worth a visit. For a fascinating day out, the 30-minute drive to Dubrovnik will offer up plenty of historic treats. With great beaches, a historic capital and natural delights, Croatia is a great spot for a holiday.

Resort Summary

A sloping hillside adorned with pine forests and olive groves lines the waterfront. It’s beautifully interspersed with luxury mansions, old churches, country paths and narrow, winding streets clad with white, purple and pink blossoms. And you know you’ve picked the right spot when celebs such as Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich and Jon Bon Jovi visit here on their yachting holidays to Croatia.

Along the harbour front sits a fabulous eight-kilometre promenade. Take leisurely walks to discover the many boutiques, where elegant restaurants sit beside casual cafes. Then you can take a break from the searing Mediterranean heat and find a shady spot in one of the cafes.

The light is stunning here, so it’s no surprise Vaho Bukovac loved to paint panoramic scenes of the area. You’ll also find many markets are held here including a popular fruit and vegetable market by the bus station.
