Wild Croatia by Land & Sea

Accommodations

Repeater Layout : horizontal
Fortuna
Location
Home Port: Split, Croatia

There’s no more exhilarating way to discover the islands of the Dalmatian Coast than aboard a romantic sailboat. Fortuna, an elegant 108-foot mahogany motorsailer yacht, is our base for kayaking and island hopping in Croatia. This classic Mediterranean gulet with gleaming teak deck is family-owned and operated and finely appointed with every comfort. Fortuna hosts a maximum of 12 Nat Hab guests in seven en suite cabins: four cabins have double beds and three have twins. Each has en suite bathroom facilities and is appointed with nautical blue and white decor and teak fittings. The vessel’s interior is air-conditioned 24 hours a day. Fortuna's sails are fully functional, and guests can give the professional crew a hand while sailing the blue Adriatic—or just relax on deck, enjoying the sound of the wind in the sheets, sans the drone of an engine. Sunbathe on the bow mattresses or in the lounge sitting area. On the stern is a shaded al fresco dining area where fresh Mediterranean cuisine is served, prepared by Fortuna’s talented chef—or opt to dine in the airy interior, where large glass windows ensure you don’t miss a bit of the passing scenery.
Hotel Academia
Location
Zagreb, Croatia

Ideally located in the historic center of Zagreb, the 4-star Hotel Academia is just a few minutes’ walk from Ban Jelacic Square, the pedestrian hub of the city’s social life. The contemporary boutique hotel has 53 rooms furnished in a modern, minimalist style, with blond wood and decor in shades of gray accented with jewel tones. Spacious bathrooms have walk-in showers and elevated rectangular sinks. All rooms have air conditioning, writing desks, free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and mini bar. The casual yet chic Bistro St. Michael is located on the ground floor, featuring creative cuisine that showcases small Croatian food producers and 30 different Croatian wines among the wide selection on the restaurant’s list.
Ethno Houses
Location
Plitvica Selo, Croatia

This luxury resort is located in the heart of Plitvice Lakes National Park, near the 256-foot-high Great Waterfall and the small boat harbor at Lake Kozjak. Built in harmony with the nature that surrounds it, the individual chalets are meant to evoke an old village, reflected in elements of classic Lika regional architecture, with interiors that exude up-to-date luxury. The overall effect is “mountain modern,” a perfect blend of tradition and contemporaneity. The main building materials are stone and wood, creating the warmth of a mountain lodge. Rooms are furnished with traditional handmade furniture and heavy fabrics, with a host of amenities including 54-inch satellite TV, radio, telephone, free Wi-Fi, coffee maker, tea kettle and safe. Wood-wrapped bathrooms have whirlpool tubs, hair dryers, bathrobes, slippers and toiletries. The restaurant, located in the center of the resort, features local Lika cuisine served in a cozy setting with a heavy beamed ceiling and charming wooden tables and chairs in a rustic style. Specialties include wild game ravioli, potatoes homegrown on the premises, garden-raised herbs and spices, and Croatian wines. The Ethno Wellness spa features a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath and purifying salt room, simulating the therapeutic effects of a salt cave. A full slate of massage services is also offered.
