Dubrovnik Gets Yet Another Five Star Hotel in Babin Kuk

Lauren Simmonds

If there’s one thing Dubrovnik isn’t short of other than crowds and Game of Thrones tours, its luxury. The Pearl of the Adriatic, known worldwide as Croatia’s most famous tourist destination, the country’s southernmost city has gained yet another high end, luxury hotel, situated in Babin Kuk.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija CrnjakCrnjak writes on the 3rd of June, 2019, following the expansion of the trade and the renovation of the Gallery in Zagreb, tourism is now the focus of Ciril Zovko, the owner of Importanne Hotels and Resort.

The Dubrovnik-based firm Importanne Hotels and Resort, owned by entrepreneur Ciril Zovko, opened its fifth hotel in a row in the city, with which it rounded up an investment cycle which had the aim to build five five star hotels in Babin Kuk on the Lapad peninsula.

The hotel has 81 luxuriously decorated rooms with panoramic views of both the sea and the Dubrovnik archipelago, as well as two a la carte restaurants, Castille and Zoë. and the only open rooftop pool in the whole of the City of Dubrovnik.

The company has chosen not to reveal the figures involved in what is obviously an enormous investment.

Importanne Hotels and Resort consists of five hotels in Croatia’s top tourist destination, Neptun, Ariston, Royal Palm, Royal Princess and Royal Blue. As for resorts, this also includes the Villa Elita.

As stated, after the company’s expansion in the trade industry as well as the renovation of the Importanne Gallery in Zagreb, Zovko and his firm are now mainly focused on investments in tourism, and not only in Dubrovnik, but for now it remains unknown as to where any news investment in tourism will eventually be realised.

For a while, Zagreb was supposed to be involved in the company’s ”game”, more specifically the building of the Croatian Music Institute, but this project ultimately failed.
