    Ultimate Mediterranean luxury retreat


A dazzling, domed, white-stone palace commanding thrilling sea views, Villa Sheherezade is one of the most exclusive addresses on the Croatian Adriatic.


Featuring its own pier, beach and an intriguing history, this is genuinely the ultimate Mediterranean luxury retreat. Poised on a peaceful clifftop, overlooking the impossibly clear Adriatic at the southeast end of the Dalmatian coast, Villa Sheherezade directly faces both the picture-perfect paradise island of Lokrum and Dubrovnik’s famous fortress walls, which are easy to walk to.

In fact, sun-blessed cinematic views greet you everywhere; the villa is surrounded by 4,000sq m of original white-stone terraces – two of them on the roof. Very popular among our guests, a third has been transformed into a large, secluded outdoor pool with a platform whirlpool next to it.


The story goes that Villa Sheherezade was built in the 1920s by a Lithuanian entrepreneur fleeing Russia’s October Revolution for his mistress, who he called Sheherezade. No expense was spared in filled the love nest with bespoke furniture and rare objects from all over the world.

True or not, the history of this palace by the sea is inextricably bound with romance – Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton once stayed here while shooting a movie in Dubrovnik. Should you have any special requests during your stay, a dedicated concierge team will be at your service 24-hours a day.
