When the cult series The Game of Thrones was filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia, yes folks you have heard it right, The Game of Thrones was filmed in Dubrovnik to the delight of many locals who made some extra “bob” appearing in the series as extras. But to my disappointment, Dubrovnik Luxury travel did not manage to sponsor the series. Just joking here as I know that Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the city major welcomed the production house HBO as we are all aware and most certainly proud that our town was chosen as the set location and that of the benefits that the filming would bring to the tourism industry in Croatia and that would once again put Dubrovnik on the world map of must visit destinations.
However, there is another map I want to talk about, equally important as it involves one English king. That is of course Dubrovnik Luxury Travel Treasure Hunt map. This team building exercise is a clever invention of the guy who happens to be the owner of the boat rental agency in Dubrovnik, called Exclusive Charter Dubrovnik. Zlatko or Zlaja is so passionate about team building that he invented this unique team building exercise, Dubrovnik Treasure Hunt and he got involved professional actors from Dubrovnik Theatre Company so that the team building treasure hunters get even greater pleasure in this intriguing game. Dubrovnik Luxury travel was more than honoured when Zlaja chose this company to co-operate so that Dubrovnik Luxury travel became exclusive provider of this service.
I am almost certain that Zlaja lived in Dubrovnik Old town in his previous life as the head of one of Dubrovnik families who succeeded to persuade Richard the Lion Heart to build Dubrovnik’s second cathedral. Now where does island of Lokrum fit into this story. Well, my dear team building treasure hunters or for that matter families and friends who are visiting Dubrovnik, book Dubrovnik Luxury Travel Treasure Hunt to learn more. Dubrovnik Luxury travel guarantees you bundle of fun in this “ Game of Thrones”
Rixos brand of luxury hotels is one of the fastest growing luxury accommodation brands in the world with plans to open 20 luxury hotels and villas worldwide by the year 2020. It already has 12 luxury hotels and villas in Turkey and it has recently opened premium luxury concept in its flagship hotels, Rixos premium Belek and Rixos premium Bodrum.
Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik is one of the pioneering hotels of Dubrovnik tourism. One of the first hotels in five star category built in the late 60’s it was pride and joy of Dubrovnik luxury accommodation and it was a well known congress centre, in fact it was the favourite conference centre together with five star luxury hotel Croatia in Cavtat. Both luxury hotels are specific in its own right.
Cavtat is a picturesque village in Konavli region of Dubrovnik and it is worth a visit for its authentic Croatian mode of living whilst Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik is ideally located, only 15 minutes walking distance from the Old city centre. However, Dubrovnik at war period reduced this pride of Dubrovnik luxury tourism to rubble and Libertas Dubrovnik was acquired by the Rixos group headed by charismatic and well respected Turkish businessman Fettah Tamince. Rixos group was loyal to the previous architectural concept which was in place and they implemented this concept having previously updated the hotel’s look to modern retro luxury accommodation.
It was indeed Mr.Tamince who turned to Dubrovnik Luxury Travel to secure his stay in Dubrovnik as he was hosting a formal opening ceremony for the hotel with more than 500 top VIP attendees.
So, when it comes to organizing logistics for top businessman, world leaders and actors, you mention the name of Kristian Vrbanic, even the president of Croatia will recognize this name. Who would not as this Dubrovnik Luxury Travel operations manager is a king in the Dubrovnik luxury market organisation world. Top Turkish politicians, businessmen, diplomats together with Saudi, Russian and European elite attended the official opening ceremony back in 2007. Kristian organized their smooth passage through the Dubrovnik airport. It was the first time that a fleet of luxury premium cars was allowed on the tarmac of Dubrovnik airport runaway thanks to Kristian’s organisation skills. He coordinated their arrival with Dubrovnik Luxury travel security team and Mr Tamince was more than happy. Job well done Mr Vrbanic.
