A lot has been written on the topic of 10 things to do when in Dubrovnik. However what does Dubrovnik and its surrounding Dubrovnik Riviera offer for a luxury traveler?
Apart from the obvious the trips from Dubrovnik to Montenegro and the one from Dubrovnik to Mostar which are on offer in the luxury seaters and luxury premium cars there is very little on offer which is genuinely marketed as Dubrovnik luxury travel that is to say local luxury travel experience. Many would pose a question why would a trip from Dubrovnik to Kotor or that from Dubrovnik to Mostar would be classified as a luxury travel just because it is on offer in the luxury vehicle without champagne and strawberries. The key lies in the choice of the route and the experience of the guide accompanying the tour. Almost all routes from Dubrovnik to Kotor would go through Boka Bay but very few have an organised boat visit to this magic island of the Lady of the Rocks which is situated off the little town of Perast. When it comes to the trip from Dubrovnik to Mostar many tours do not include the visit to this magical gem of nature that are Kravice watterfalls. The key concept of local experience plays also a key role especially in the world of luxury travel.
As for the Dubrovnik region a lot has been written about Peljesac region wines and oysters. A luxury traveler is quite often a synonym for someone with a well paid job, well educated person who wants to experience the taste of Croatia and Dubrovnik. But it is also a type of a traveler who wants to share a unique experience. A trip from Dubrovnik to Ston may offer you a visit to an oyster farm on a private boat trip, or share that unique experience that is a visit to the botanical garden and seeing the widest plane tree in Europe. And there is also a visit to Konavle region from Dubrovnik and that famous Dalmatian experience of “peka”, lamb and potatoes specially prepared under a bell, yes quite really a metal bell, on the top of which is fire ash, a slow cooking process with a scrummy end result that are mouth watering potatoes and juicy meat. And if you have visited Dubrovnik wine trail you would know that a bottle of rich flavored red wine Postup would go down well with this meal.
To summarize, luxury travel in Dubrovnik is all about that extra mile that Dubrovnik luxury travel companies are prepared to go, it is about offering that unique experience with special care and attention offered on that personal level.
