5 best hotels in Sibenik

If you wonder where to stay in Sibenik, we made a short list with useful information about hotels in our city. These are our favorite hotels…


D-resort – elegant and contemporary architecture

Our number one is definitely D-Resort. Built in 2015 it has an impressive view of Sibenik town and the whole bay. It is actually a complex of several luxurious villas, a deluxe hotel and a private marina.

Croatian architects Nikola Bašić (architecture) and Marko Murtić (interior design) designed it. In fact, in 2016 it was among 7 finalists for the prestigious “International Hotel and property award” within category for hotels with maximum 200 rooms.  

The key material used in the construction is white cement shaped with a wooden molds technique. Decorative traces on the surface of the cement obtained this way give a new sculptural quality to the material.

D-resort interior

The principal element of the interior is an oak wood whose texture, warmth and color make a carefully chosen contrast to concrete walls. Sculptures and other works of art, made by famous Croatian artists, contribute to this sensation of uniqueness.

„The art is an integral part of D-resort“, explains the architect Marko Murtić.

He designed all the interiors together with a colleague Ana Aščić. Furniture, carpets and lighting objects were invented, designed and produced specifically for this complex.

Authors of the art pieces:

  • sculptures (in hotel lobby and wellness) by Mirko Zrinšćak
  • the mural and all paintings by Tomislav Buntak.
