If you love concrete brutalism, you’ll adore this building; if you don’t, it may help you change your mind. Public spaces are open and fluid, and most have floor-to-ceiling glazing, terraces and views down onto Cavtat’s turquoise bay. In reception, concrete slabs bear abstract sculptural reliefs, doubling as artworks and structural columns. In short, a modernist masterpiece. Most rooms face south and have blissful views onto the open sea, with sliding glass doors giving onto generous balconies. It sits on a rocky peninsular amid pine woods, a 10-minute walk along the seafront from Cavtat’s historic centre. Boats to Dubrovnik depart from Cavtat’s quayside, and the city is also served by bus.
