When it comes to traveling Croatia, there are many ways to do it. The Croatian accommodation offer is rich, from apartments to hostels, camping, hotels and bed and breakfasts. One of the most exclusive ways to travel Croatia is through a lap of luxury, and luxury villas in the Croatian region are sure to win you over.
First off, what is a luxury villa? When it comes to luxury villas, you have to expect that going the extra mile to ensure your stay is everything you want and more is deemed crucial. Luxury villas are not only defined by the beauty of their interiors, but also by their continued hospitality such as concierge services, private chefs, and any personal service you seek. Luxury villas in Croatia can range from converted palaces to new contemporary homes. The ultimate key is first class service, and fortunately you will be offered just that.
Total Croatia News reached out to Luxury Croatian Villas, the leader and pioneer in finding luxury villas in Croatia, with their launch in 2009 as part of the Secret Dalmatia travel experience. Being the first and original website for luxury villas exclusively, they have particularly done their due diligence in the area. Because luxury villas in the region are harder to come by and there are only very few specialized websites that even consider the job, Luxury Croatian Villas have focused primarily to remove the mediocre, giving you only the truest and most classified villas on the market for rent today.
To further be at the forefront of this unique industry, you need to have a rich database of truly specialized properties that fit the luxury villa standards, ensuring that the high elite clientele will follow. Requests have been made from everyone such as royal families to production companies wanting to film TV series, and even some of the largest world renown DJ’s looking for an oasis to record their next album, fitting most everyone’s expectations. Another popular package client’s request is the option of a luxury yacht along with a luxury villa, giving you the best of both worlds at your fingertips.
The most popular destinations for luxury still remain in Hvar and Dubrovnik. Many of the villas located in Dubrovnik boast swimming pools and spas, and many are conveniently overlooking the blue of the Adriatic. For example, Villa Alba located close to the heart of the old town can sleep 14 and has amenities such as a swimming pool, sauna, and daily maid. This property begins at €1800/night in the off season, running up to €2500 in the high season. Not far from Hvar town you can find Villa Hvar, a villa that had been built in the Baroque period and was recently reconstructed into the now luxury villa. Sleeping 10 guests with a seaview and a heated swimming pool, this property will run between €1200 and €2200 per night.

The second largest city in Croatia, Split, is quickly catching up to the lap of luxury Dubrovnik and Hvar offer. Because there are many more requests for the Split region with wishes to basque in Diocletian’s glory, you can find Mediterranean, traditional, and contemporary villas here starting as low as €300 per night to €2500 per night during the high season.
One of the most unique properties is the Golden Rays Resort in Primošten. Each of the 7 villas that make up the Golden Rays Resort have 3-4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and can sleep up to 6 people. Boasting swimming pools, saunas, and fitness areas, the villas have a useable space of 370 square meters. Decorated in a chic and contemporary Mediterranean design, the price for this property is available upon request.

Another unique concept while traveling luxuriously throughout Croatia is that many hotels actually offer their own villas. For example, Sun Gardens at the Radisson Blu Resort and Spa in Dubrovnik has 1-2 bedroom deluxe accommodations with a range of leisure facilities such as swimming pools, sports clubs, and tennis courts.
In conclusion, there are a plethora of exclusive luxury villas to rent throughout Croatia. Keeping in mind that the off season will cost you much less than our popular summer months, expect a villa to run anywhere between €700 and €8000 per night. There are plenty more properties in the south of Dalmatia to choose from, but regions like Istria are just beginning to make their mark with newly built villas coming to fruition today.
