Described as a Mediterranean medieval masterpiece, the Lesic Dimitri Palace is a charming boutique hotel occupying an 18th century bishop’s palace in the heart of historic Korcula. It’s also a Relais and Chateaux property, meaning that you can be guaranteed exquisite service and a highly personalised, luxury stay.
Composed of the main palace and five adjacent cottages, Lesic Dimitri Palace has been designed to echo Marco Polo’s travels on the Silk Road. Sublimely imagined by Thai designer Attauyut Piravinich, the Palace’s five residences are individually decorated in the style of a particular region. Each one-to-three-bedroom residence is self-contained and equipped with a fully-fitted kitchen, plasma screens with satellite TV in every room, an iPod dock, and iPads, board games, and DVDs for guests to borrow. Enjoy meals overlooking the sparkling Adriatic and the Korcula archipelago at the terrace hotel and bar, and take some time to relax at the spa where a team of Thai therapists offer a treatment list with influences from the Silk Road, Thailand, and the Mediterranean.
Venture outside, and you’ll find that you’re steps from Marco Polo’s house and the old cathedral within the Old Town wall. The stone-paved Zakrjan Beach is also just a short stroll, while a pebbly beach can be found nearby the Old Town and the charming sandy beach in Lumbarda Village is within striking distance. Lesic Dimitri Palace also has a private yacht that can be rented per hour or per day to take you to the numerous coves and beaches of Korcula Island and Peljesac Peninsula.
