The Radisson Blu hotel has opened in Orasac, 15 minutes drive north of Dubrovnik. I saw this hotel in progress back in February (workmen, hard hats, snow blizzard ...) so I am dying to return for a full visit. 201 rooms and 207 apartments. See here The hotel also boasts huge conference facilities in elegant contemporary surroundings for up to 900 delegates. See here More than 15 eateries around the resort. Formerly known as Gardens of the Sun, the new spa hotel certainly regenerates the sleepy village of Orasac, popular with stone Captain's villas.
