The first thing we noticed was actually the scent of the room; a welcoming, comforting scent that I thought I recognised, so I had to ask the manager, who was showing us the room, what it was.
I discovered that the whole hotel is scented with The White Company scents which he orders from the UK as he thinks that they’re the best scents available – and I happen to agree, I adore them!
Our room had a gorgeous King size bed, which was incredibly comfortable. Zeljko, the general manager, says he sourced them specially as he wanted to ensure that the beds, along with everything else in his hotel, was of the highest quality.
In what I think is the highest praise, he’s actually had a lot of guests asking where he found the mattresses as they want to have these beds at home!
The linens too were exceptional: pure Egyptian cotton with that silky, pure feeling that makes you feel so relaxed, cosy and luxurious when you jump into bed.
But there was so much more to this suite than just the bed! In fact, it was a studio suite, that even had a kitchenette if you fancied cooking (I have to say we didn’t and ate out every night of our holiday!), as well as the most beautiful little table and chairs…
Even the backs of the chairs had the most intricate details; nothing has been forgotten in this hotel.
I particularly loved the tones and the colours as they made the room so warm and welcoming.
The bathroom is also a haven of luxury; his and hers sinks…
The White Company scents…
A separate bath (which I spent a lot of time in!)…
Not only was this room exquisite, but it’s also pretty picture perfect, so I let my inner shutterbug loose and took quite a few photos!
The final touch of the room that I adored: the shutters that blocked out the morning light completely and the curtains that gave the morning light the most wonderful glow when you let the light in after a lazy morning in that very comfortable bed.
The whole hotel is decorated in a similar fashion, meaning that the lush and luxurious feeling isn’t confined to your room, but flows throughout.
Now, there’s one more exceptionally special thing about this hotel that really set it apart for me. In fact, I think this is going to be pretty hard for any hotel to beat in my books.
As the hotel is so small there is no restaurant, but instead they serve breakfast afternoon tea style in your room, for you to enjoy at whatever time you ask for it.
You wake up to a brisk knock on the door from two wonderful ladies dressed in old style maids outfits (classy to the last this hotel is), bearing a cake stand of pastries, fruits, coffee and juices…
The green juice is made from a special recipe that Zeljko’s sister found in New York when she was living there, and each morning one of the girls goes to the market to buy the ingredients and makes the juices fresh just before bringing them up to guests rooms’.
It’s delicious, healthy – and the recipe is kept under lock and key!
So good in fact, that I retreated back to bed to enjoy a second cup after breakfast!
