A Luxury Croatian Experience


A Luxury Croatian Experience

Our m&i Private- hosted FAM trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia – as it happened…

Five industry professionals. Two wonderful hosts. The stunning Croatian coastline. Oh, and a yacht. The perfect recipe for an indescribable FAM trip.

Eye-opening in terms of business, sure – but a balm for the soul, too. Croatian National Tourist Board and M&I put such effort into our recent hosted visit, it had to be captured with a blog post.

High concept luxury experiences and the option of exploring multiple locations across one destination sets this trip location apart from others. Traveling by yacht allows for quality business family time that’s guaranteed to be fun, and exhilarating.

Day 1:

When most people think of Croatia, their thoughts turn to the dramatic scenery of Game Of Thrones – but our sail began with a beautiful, humble farm visit.

Having transferred to Trstenik from the Sun Gardens Resort Hotel (the proud hosts of M&I Private’s event), we kicked off the trip with an authentic dinner in a local village before a well-deserved rest onboard the Avangard. Happy days.


Day 2:

Back on the yacht for a glittering early start in a secluded swim spot, en route to Hvar. Think paddle boarding and jumping into the clear waters from the top deck.

As the beauty of the historical port came into view, we were reminded that the area is brimming with authenticity and culture – full of superb event venues to suit most needs.

The 5-star, opulent Palace Elisabeth blew us away – a heritage hotel designed to bring its rich history to the forefront of the guest experience.

Our evening was spent in the Adriana 4- Star Spa Hotel boasting an exceptional view of the harbour. Ideal for guests who want to be as close to the water as possible – with phenomenal food to boot.

Following a delicious three course dinner with a phenomenal wine from the Zlatan Otok winery. It didn’t take much to convince our group to join the lively bar and enjoy an evening of dancing and fun.


Day 3:

The island of Brac provided a wholesome day out, including a visit to an historic museum, plus an insightful olive oil tasting in the village of Skrip.

Blue Sun Hotel hosted us for a plentiful lunch, with the most perfectly cooked lamb you could as for, following our site visit, rounded off with a wine tasting at the Stina Winery in the port of Bol.

Back on the yacht, a captain’s dinner took us into late evening – newfound friends, a bubbling hot tub and plenty of wine – a picture-perfect end to our time aboard the Avangard.

Day 4:

Our final day was spent exploring the beautiful city of Split, and carrying out site inspections. Staff welcomed us with open arms, and an extensive tour of the facilities. Inspired by the huge range of unique experiences on offer for corporate events this will certainly be a destination for our future events.

Highlights included the Ivan Meštrović museum and a fascinating tour of the old town and Diocletian’s Cellars.

Split’s varied history takes in Greek, Roman, Venetian and many more timelines – all meeting in one truly memorable destination.

Dinner was a colourful Mediterranean spread at Le Meridien Lav hotel’s beautiful Conlemani Restaurant with a start of octopus salad, sea bass main and a creative take on tiramisu.

Day 5:

Saying goodbye to the wonderful group of industry professionals I’ve come to call friends was tough. A huge thank you to all involved for making this such a memorable (and above all, fun) experience.
