Just a short flight from the UK, the beautiful country of Croatia is a spectacular location for all types of meetings and incentives. With its excellent hospitality, warm climate and stunning countryside, it’s rapidly growing in population among event planners and tourists alike. The STAR Your World team recently flew out to Dubrovnik for a five-night tour of the country, spending time with our DMC Partner. Our goal was to explore as much as possible during our short stay, and it’s fair to say our expert destination management company didn’t disappoint us.

In Dubrovnik- our first stop- we had the opportunity to ride the famous cable cars and take in the views, alongside a visit inside the historic city walls. As well as checking out many of the great restaurants, hotels, off the beaten track venues and all the city has to offer, one of the highlights was a sunset cruise with dinner onboard the Karaka boat. This pirate ship-like vessel can be hired exclusively for larger groups- perfect for that quirky, fairytale-inspired adventure or we can even bring in the theme of the Pirates of the Caribbean.

As we left Dubrovnik and began to drive along the stunning coast towards our next region Split we explored the salt flats and the quaint little village of Ston a great place to hire boats exclusively and enjoy some oyster tasting. A little further long the coastline we stopped at Omis and took a little boat to a restaurant located in the Cetina Canyon where we had lunch. When tourists think of Croatia, they often imagine destinations like Split and Dubrovnik, but the country’s smaller towns and villages are just as spectacular and impressive, and often surrounded by the warm, turquoise clear sea.

We headed towards Split, a city packed with cobbled streets for exploring, and a large marina filled with restaurants, entertainment spaces and museums. The one-hour boat trip to Hvar, a stunning island in the Adriatic Sea, should be on everyone’s destination list when they come here. We loved walking around the fort which offered some of the best views the island has to offer. On dry land we were impressed by the range of four and five star accommodation options on offer, as well as the high quality of food and drink, both inside and outside the big cities. If you’re considering an incentive based in Croatia, STAR Your World and our DMC partners can support you in making it a reality.
