Hotel Kompas is in sheltered Lapad Bay north of Dubrovnik's Old Town. It faces Sunset Beach and it's a five-minute walk to the bus that takes you to the Old Town in ten minutes. Lapad's beaches, restaurants and family atmosphere make this one of Dubrovnik's most popular areas for a beach holiday. Next door is pedestrianised Šetalište Kralja Zvonimira, with its cafés and restaurant terraces. You'll find more beaches just to the south.

By plane: direct flights from London to Dubrovnik take 2 hours 30 minutes. The hotel is a 35-minute drive from the airport. Free parking available. Book flights to Dubrovnik.

High ceilings and floor-length windows bring a welcome sense of openness and airiness, letting those Adriatic views speak for themselves. The design is pleasingly minimalist and immensely stylish with hints of cool Sixties décor, which is what you want in this light-filled place. Chic neutral tones enhance the feeling of sophistication.


Service is friendly and professional. Head to the first-floor terrace where there's a large outdoor pool, sunloungers and the poolside Luna Bar. There's another pool inside the spa on the same level, and several rows of sunbeds on Sunset Beach reserved for guests. Its penthouse conference centre can accommodate 420 people.
