Food heaven: A culinary journey through Dubrovnik
Discover the cultural and gastronomic wonders of Croatia with Sun Gardens, Dubrovnik. ‘A Culinary Journey Through Dubrovnik’ is the resort’s latest enticing package, encompassing a truly indulgent four-night stay at Croatia’s finest resort.
For Foodies and Wine Conoisseurs
A private boat from the resort’s marina will take guests to Croatia’s famed wine region, Pelješac. Here, tours of the dramatic local vineyards, where cobalt skies meet row-uponrow of lush, green vines, are organised, followed by extensive wine tasting in three of the country’s leading wine cellars. A seafood lunch at Croatian haunt, Mali Ston, celebrated for its world-class oysters, is also on the agenda. Back at the resort, guests can indulge in Sun Gardens, Dubrovnik’s latest foodie initiative. The ‘Tastes for all Senses’ menu showcases the best regional produce. Each course is complemented by local wines, hand-picked by the resort’s well-respected sommelier. Among the delights on the menu, are Mediterranean shrimps coupled with Istrian black truffle and mouth-watering slow-roasted fillets of veal.
For Culture Enthusiasts
Following all the feasting, guests will have the opportunity to visit the ‘Walls of Ston’, which at an impressive five kilometres, is the second longest protective wall in the world. They were built to protect the medevial town of Ston, a major fort of the Ragusan Republic and are widely regarded as a notable feat of medieval architecture. Happily, the town itself remains somewhat off the tourist radar and meandering down the cobbled streets, surrounded by white-washed houses with terracotta roofs, is akin to stepping back in time.
Sun Gardens, Dubrovnik enjoys unrivalled views of the Adriatic and the nearby Elafiti Islands, with characteristic Croatian village architecture running throughout. The resort has access to an idyllic beach that offers an array of water-based activities, a wealth of international bars and restaurants and an exceptional fitness centre. Not to mention an award-winning spa by OCCO and a dedicated Kids Club.
