This Summer, be amongst the privileged few to experience the masterpiece that is Lopud 1483 – Now with a complimentary speed boat included throughout your stay.
An Extraordinary Offering
Arriving at Lopud 1483 is nothing short of breathtaking, hinting at the magical experience that is to follow. This is no ordinary luxury property; it is a class apart, a place where even the most travel-worn will find themselves rejuvenated and inspired. Lopud 1483 is whatever its guests want it to be: a serene, private retreat for a family to reconnect and recharge, a ‘wow factor’ base for an activity-filled friends’ reunion or a spectacular backdrop for a milestone celebration. Stay for a month, a long weekend at the end of a week’s sailing holiday or anything in between.
Suffused with the intoxicating scent of lavender and other aromatic plants, Lopud 1483’s gardens give way to heart-stopping views across the Adriatic at the neighbouring Elaphiti Islands. Beyond the monastery walls lie citrus orchards and olive groves traversed by little pathways to sandy beaches, and a region of rich culture, heritage and natural beauty. Local seafront restaurants, buzzing beach bars reached only by boat, endless pine-fringed hiking trails and insider access tours of Dubrovnik all await the curious traveller. After a day of exploration, return to Lopud 1483 and wind down with sunset yoga or a bespoke spa treatment.
The seascapes that surround Lopud are a playground for explorers and hedonists alike. A secret passageway leads out from the monastery onto a private bathing platform from which guests can cool off in the sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic or enjoy the kayaks and paddle boards. For August and September, Lopud 1483 is providing guests with a speed boat at their disposal, opening a window onto a Croatia that few get to experience. Island hop to otherwise inaccessible beaches, drop anchor in secluded lagoons, snorkel in the blue caves at Kolocep, fish to your heart’s content and, for the thrill seekers, there’s no better coastline for cliff diving.
A Gastronomic Journey
The profusion of epicurean offerings that Lopud 1483 provides is second to none. Exceptional chefs (of Michelin fame) turn their hand to anything from the creation of an exquisite fine dining experience to a DIY pizza session or s’mores around the campfire for younger guests. Meals are expertly tailored and the dishes are local, with guests often choosing to pick their own ingredients from the Renaissance Garden and early risers collecting eggs for breakfast from Lopud’s own chickens. The team are well versed in the slickest establishments and most authentic eateries in the area and their ‘sea safari’ takes in a range of local oyster farms and other artisanal purveyors. Enjoy Lopud’s famous sunsets with cocktails made using herbs from the Sacred Garden, or take in the view from the bar on the fortress rooftop while sampling Croatia’s finest wines.
