Belvedere Hotel


42°38'0'' N

Frana Supila 28

The new Belvedere will be a modern five star luxury property located on a slope opposite of Dubrovnik. The hotel, residences and villas are completely surrounded by a green promenade and a garden. The urban design recognizes three main features of the site: a steep slope of the terrain, the mediterranean surroundings and the gradation of urban matrix in relation to the coast line. The reception and the entrance are the focal area of the property. Situated on its highest point, the reception is a start of a funicular that descends into the main lobby of the hotel, towards the sea.


Hotel rooms serve as a contrast to the grandiose entrance, they are designed minimalistic, with a dose of luxury. A high level of intimacy is achieved by an L-shaped interior that embraces an outdoor loggia, a canopy that provides shaded private outdoor area, a plunge pool and a small garden. The atypical width to depth ratio of the floor plan ensures a feeling of spaciousness.


The botanical promenade, a green backbone through the site, opens various natural zones as extensions of indoor spaces. The site has two distinctive landscape types of zones: a woodland area and a karst, rocky area. The terraces and roof gardens in the woodland are characterized by greenish groundcovers and trees; while those surrounded by rocky areas are covered with perennials, small shrubs and rocks in greyish color.
