Lesic Dimitri Palace

Lesic Dimitri Palace was presented, for the first time, at the recent seminar on The importance of special interests tourism for sustainable development, organised by the Korcula Tourist Board on 18 November 2007 in Korcula Town.

By meticulously reconstructing the Palace into a high-end apart-hotel, restaurant and spa, Lesic Dimitri Ltd aims to create a new tourist offering in Korcula, which will enrich the island’s current provision and, hopefully, help to attract an increased number of affluent visitors.

Lesic Dimitri Palace is situated within the heart of the historic and beautiful medieval town of Korcula, next to the house of Marco Polo.

The Palace will comprise six luxurious residences, which range in size from 50 sqm to 162 sqm, a multi-treatment room spa and restaurant.

lesicdimitrilogo1Reconstruction began in February 2006, and completion is set for spring 2009.

Whilst complying with the highest standards of reconstruction as laid down by the conservatory department in Dubrovnik, the Palace retains many original features.

Drawing on Korcula‘s historic connection with Marco Polo, and the Palace’s proximity to his house, the project’s concept has been influenced by the great explorer’s travels. Each of the residences is themed on a particular region of the Silk Road, with the themes extending to both the spa and cuisine.

The interior design enhances and enriches – without intruding on or compromising – the historic fabric of Lesic Dimitri Palace. Indeed, it is the exquisite detailing of the design that sets Lesic Dimitri apart.

From the handcrafted furniture to the latest technological amenity, the fully furnished residences offer everything its guests might desire. The experience is enhanced by the restaurant and spa, which also offer the highest standards of service. The Palace will provide an extensive activity and excursions programme and access to the Palace’s private boats.

Through Lesic Dimitri, Korcula will finally have a means of presenting itself as a luxury destination to an international market, whose expectations for higher levels of accommodation and standards are ever increasing. Check other Korcula Hotels
