Living

Accommodation is offered on bed and breakfast basis. Mimi’s is a bistro bar-lounge with a cool outdoor terrace right by the beach serving drinks, breakfast and an à la carte menu. An additional à la carte restaurant is planned close to reception for 2018. Lovely outdoor pool surrounded by terrace with sunbeds (free) and some lush Mediterranean plants. The hotel’s owner is known as “the Captain” and has his own boat. Activities include snorkelling with the captain and octopus hunting with the captain (he knows the best places, catches them with his hands for guests to see and then returns them to the sea.) There’s also Yoga, a bike tour and a weekly BBQ. These activities are at additional charge. Kayak and paddle board hire at charge. Free snorkel equipment including flippers for use from the beach (subject to availability).

The hotel has a concession on the pretty pebble beach right in front of the hotel (no road) with free sunbeds and parasols. Water-taxis collect guests from the beach pontoon for trips into Korcula town or over to Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula. Water-taxi to Korcula Town costs around £17 one-way, per boat taking four to six people and is the fastest way there, around five minutes. Regular taxi is around £10 one-way and takes around ten minutes.

Wonderful, stylish yet relaxed addition to the Korcula scene and perfect for couples.

We will get you here from Dubrovnik airport in about 2 hours 30 minutes including the ferry crossing.
