Did you know that the legendary Silk Road is said to have begun on the island of Korčula? Better yet, if you’re looking to take a walk back in time, Lešić Dimitri, an 18th Century Bishop’s palace, is known as the beginning of this ancient trade route.
A genuine pearl of Korčula, LD is an elegant private retreat that speaks to Korčula’s rich history and culture. Located in the heart of the old town, this palace boutique hotel boasts just five suites inspired by Korčula’s most famous resident, Marco Polo and his travels along the Silk Road. LD marries the world of old and new, blending contemporary designs with the character and charm Korčula radiates. For those looking to enjoy luxury accommodation while experiencing the true essence of Dalmatia, you don’t have to think twice.
Not only does LD offer five spacious and themed suites named after imperative trade routes along the Silk Road, but each suite has been faithfully restored to retain the original features of this 18th-century palace. These authentic elements are thus combined with handcrafted furniture, immaculate design, and modern technology. While each suite is equipped with a fitted kitchen, dining facility, and the option for a private chef, LD even transformed their sixth residence into a spa area for guests to enjoy – allowing them to feel absolute relaxation and comfort in this lavish environment.
Apart from their suites, LD offers a full range of concierge services, including private transfers, excursions and spa treatments for their guests. Additionally, the hotel’s restaurant specializes in ‘al fresco fine dining’, leaving guests intoxicated from the bold flavors of the locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients the region has to offer. Inspired by the Adriatic coast and the aromas of Dalmatian cuisine, LD restaurant’s head chef and sommelier work in unison to create a unique yet local dining experience, promising guests the most authentic gastronomic adventure they could imagine.
Lešić Dimitri has been recognized in numerous tourism awards and was the only Croatian hotel listed in Conde Nast Brides’ Top 100 Honeymoon Destinations.
