Expert review of Hotel Sipan
In an elegant late-19th-century villa overlooking Šipanska Luka’s palm-lined seafront promenade, this hotel is a great place to wind down and relax. Besides the beautiful island location, you get a slick modern room, a waterside restaurant with big white parasols, and the chance to spend some time in Dubrovnik, which lies just a one-hour boat ride away. You can even try scuba diving (first lesson free).
On the harbourfront in Šipanska Luka, overlooking the sea on the island of Šipan. Regular ferries run to and from Dubrovnik (journey time approx one hour), also stopping at the islands of Koločep and Lopud en-route.
The 76 rooms are furnished in a minimalist style and decorated primarily in crisp white and earthy beige, with splashes of red added by details such as desk chairs. Besides very comfy beds, you get a safe, mini-bar and satellite-TV but no air conditioning (they’ll give you a fan if you ask). The en-suite bathrooms have a shower and hairdryer.
There is a lounge with internet corner and a lovely seafront terrace for open-air drinking and dining.
The hotel restaurant does a reasonable buffet breakfast and buffet dinner (some guests are on half-board). For something more special, walk a short way along the seafront to Restaurant Pjat. Occupying an old stone villa, also owned by the hotel, it serves creative Mediterranean cuisine prepared from local seasonal produce with an emphasis on seafood, plus high-quality locally produced wines. The hotel’s Café Barka does coffee, drinks and cocktails by the waterside – lovely sunset views too.
Massage and aromatherapy are on offer, plus scuba diving (all guests are entitled to a free try-out lesson in the bay). Big game fishing can be arranged on request. There’s a pleasant little pebble beach nearby, with kayaks and canoes for hire.
Helpful and professional staff.
Couples and families in search of a relaxing island holiday, combined with the opportunity to spend some time exploring Dubrovnik.
