Dubrovnik Palace Hotel
Located just west of Dubrovnik’s Old Town on the Lapad peninsula, this 10-story luxury hotel overlooks the Elaphite Islands off the Adriatic coast. All 308 guest rooms face the sea and come equipped with a private balcony and flat-screen TV. Outside, a rocky beach provides direct access to the water, while three pools provide plenty of space to sunbathe. The hotel also has a spa with an indoor pool, as well as a PADI scuba diving center. Dining options include two waterfront restaurants and the signature Elafiti Restaurant, which serves traditional Mediterranean fare amid panoramic views of the islands.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
