Originally a fortress built in 1852 by Austro-Hungarian General Lazar Mamula, the hotel is born from a meticulous restoration...

done in concert with local heritage authorities. Every brick, wall, and feature has been carefully restored to its original state, yet with a keen eye to the surrounding natural elements. Through prominent courtyards and outdoor gathering spots, the hotel has become an open, breathing entity that allows the sea, wind, rocks, and crashing waves to augment the beauty of the structure. The hotel does not have a lobby in the traditional sense, with the fort’s tower hosting the spa, suites, and more.

The hotel presents a holistic design that allows each space to resonate based on its innate, historic elements.

Through organic materials like wood, stone, and natural fabrics, as well as a color palette of earth tones and bright hues, the interiors echo the beauty of the surrounding nature. Locally sourced stone in the spa captures the space’s meditative spirit, while different stone types in rooms create a unique narrative for each guest. The interiors use cultural references to create a modern reinterpretation of a retreat, with inspiration ranging from local artisanal trades to minimalist midcentury style.

Using the best local ingredients, Archambault brings sensitivity and elegance to the kitchen. The restaurant itself is set atop the west wing of the fort overlooking the southern tip of the Croatian coast and featuring stunning sunset views.
