Omis is currently the hidden gem of Croatia's Dalmatian coast so take advantage now! At the mouth of the Cetina river it grew up as a pirate fortress (although its beginnings go back to ancient Greek and Roman times). Omis offers visitors an interesting history, fresh air, unspoilt nature, breathtaking sandy and pebbly beaches and a healthy way of life.
The lovely Villa Dvor was originally built in 1937 by a rich merchant as a private residence but in 2002 the family Ćurlin fully reconstructed and refurbished Villa Dvor into a boutique hotel, keeping much of its traditional architecture. Its unique position offers a magnificent view of the ancient town of Omiš, the Adriatic Sea, the Cetina River Canyon, the peaks of the Mosor Mountain, the ancient Republic of Poljica in the north and across to Brac Island.
Hotel Villa Dvor has good quality accommodation, gastronomic delicacies of the region including many ingredients from their own gardens, a warm welcome and service with smile from a truly wonderful family enterprise. The hotel also has many innovative and important environmentally positive practices and policies including recycling, composting, solar power, heating system powered by the river, elevator energy convertor and energy saving devices throughout the hotel - from 2010 they have an eco certification.
The hotel has 26 rooms, all with a queen size bed (King size in suites and superior rooms); LCD TV with satellite TV; air conditioning; free WiFi; mini bar; safe deposit box; bathroom with shower; hair dryer. Some rooms have river view, some a sea view.
The elegant restaurant 'Knez', located on the hotel terrace with spectacular views, offers a wide range of gastronomic specialities which include local specialities from the Poljica area prepared from ecologically grown ingredients and traditional recipes which have been passed down from generation to generation. Lovers of good wines can enjoy the house wine, produced by the family or choose from the best wines Dalmatian has to offer.
For relaxation you can use the Jacuzzi, located on the rooftop terrace with panoramic views. You can also book a massage at the hotel.
There is private, secured & video-monitored parking below the hotel and then access to the hotel has been carved through the rock underneath the hotel, where a lift has been installed. Enjoy the view as you ascend through pure rock as, half way up, you are confronted with a magical view of the canyon of river Cetina and surrounding mountains.
