At a Glance

Inspired by alleged Korcula native Marco Polo and his stops along the Silk Road, each of Lesic Dimitri Palace’s five residence-style rooms features a different décor, adding to the unique charm of the historic property.

  • The individually appointed rooms named after stops on the Silk Road
  • Complimentary breakfast on the waterfront terrace
  • The extensive, yet small LD Spa


A two-minute walk from Korcula’s central area, the Lesic Dimitri Palace occupies a restored 18th-century bishop’s residence. Today, the boutique property has five fully serviced suites (complete with kitchens and washing machines), each named after a place Marco Polo visited (Venice, China, Arabia, India, Ceylon).

The décor in the five residences follows a mostly white color palate, but each feature touches from the destination it is named for. The three-bedroom Venice suite is the largest, and boasts a stunning birdcage-like alcove, while the one-bedroom Arabia suite is draped in white silks and offers 360-degree views of the town and surroundings. While there are no communal hotel spaces, the rooms all have either a balcony or courtyard, so there is ample private space for lounging.

The hotel’s extensive LD Spa and its restaurant, which serves superb Croatian cuisine in a waterside setting, make the Lesic Dimitri a top choice for visitors touring the Croatian islands. There is no pool, but guests can walk across the street from the hotel to a rocky beach with crystalline waters. The town’s nightlife is centered on bars and restaurants down the alley from the hotel, but the Lesic Dimitri is set just far enough away that the only sounds guests will hear at night are the nearby church bells’ melodious chimes.

Who Should Stay

This boutique property offers an apartment-style option for travelers looking to spend a night or two on land when touring the Croatian islands.
