This design hotel opened in Trogir near Split in 2016, bringing some mod sophistication to the mid-Dalmatian coast. The stone building, once a tobacco warehouse, sits on a narrow channel of water that separates Ciovo Island from the mainland, so guests can arrange daylong sailing trips as well as crossings on a speedboat. The guest rooms have white-and-blue-patterned linens, silk rugs, and wood floors, plus marble-tiled baths with oversize tubs and showers. The light-filled library is filled with art and design books, and guests can play dominos or billiards in the lounge. That's all lovely, but the star of the show is the sundeck with its sea views and large lap pool. Poolside, white day beds and umbrellas line up along black-and-white-checkerboard tiles that are echoed at the bottom of pool. At night, the shimmering blue light of the pool is reflected on the hotel’s white stone walls.
