Hotel Overview

Sense Of Place

Lesic Dimitri Palace is located on the site of a former bishop’s palace dating back to the 18th century, on the island of Korcula, a speedboat ride from Dubrovnik or Split.

Rooms at Lesic Dimitri Palace

More than just a hotel, Lesic Dimitri Palace is a restoration project, and the designers were keen to keep the palace’s original features and layout intact. Rather than hotel rooms, you find instead palatial residences, ranging from one to four bedrooms. Most have a private terrace or balcony, and they all combine the best of the original features with modern furnishings, inspired by Marco Polo’s Silk Road travels.

The residences are fully serviced but include fitted kitchens and dining facilities, so you can prepare your own meals - but if you don't feel like cooking, one of the chefs will create a gourmet dining experience for you in the privacy of your suite.

Food & Drink

The hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant offers the best local seasonal produce from land and sea, including fresh vegetables from its own organic gardens and local olive oil, showcasing the finest modern Dalmatian cuisine. The restaurant's terrace stretches along Korcula's medieval wall, offering panoramic views as you dine in style.


Head to the spa for a revitalising spa treatment inspired by the Thai and Ayurvedic traditions of the Silk Road, and utilising natural local products such as herbs, flowers and organic fruit.

Activities at Lesic Dimitri Palace

Korcula may be tipped as a recent hotspot, but its picturesque setting has been attracting visitors for centuries – from the ancient Greeks to the Spice Route Venetians. Simply soaking up all these cultural influences as you stroll along its tiny, winding streets is enough to keep you busy, but hiking, sailing and plenty of other exclusive experiences can all be arranged as well.

The hotel offers wine tasting evenings and private trips on its yacht to secluded nearby islands for swimming and exploring – and you can even hop over to Dubrovnik for a night at the opera.
