We spent a relaxing and enjoyable time at Hotel Balatura. Very charming surroundings and positive atmosphere, looking out at stars and Croatian mountains. The owners and also one of their sons were very helpful and sympathetic, and same goes for the whole staff. Good vegetarian food, and a 15 minutes drive to some nice places to swim and jump in the sea. The swimming pool is not yet finished, but the place where this will be built, already looks promising.
Hotel Balatura is the best place so far in my Croatian visit. this is eco friendly hotel with lots of comfort and great ambiance. Rooms are clean and cosy. beautiful view from balcony with hammock. the home made food. such a healthy and delicious breakfast as well the dinner. the host is an mazing guy who travel around few countries. They do organise Yoga and mediation retreats. this is the best place for family of coupe for blissful stay.
A small place just a few minutes by car off the coast. Very high standard of the rooms. Very nice, friendly and helpful hosts, But the highlight is the food. The dishes served (there is only one set menu: starter+main+dessert) convince as well non-vegetarians. The way it is prepared, presented on the plate, the quality, but most importantly the taste is amazing! They will even accommodate small adjustments for other dietary restrictions, vegans etc. Thank you Natasha (great chef) and the rest of the team for your efforts! I will always come back.
This was the highlight of our holiday to Croatia. AMAZING. The chef is outstanding and also lovey to chat to. The family who run the hotel were brilliant, such a warm welcome. The father is the waiter at night, his wife in the morning and their delightful daughter was working there as part of her studies. We stayed in the Lavender Suite which was just perfect. We ate in th courtyard each evening - when the food is this good why go anywhere else. I can't wait to go back.
Love this hotel. Actually, calling it a hotel is not proper as it is really small. Simple details give its actual character... The furniture, common spaces and the breakfast are all special. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Recommend to anyone who wishes to stay away from touristic places.
