Croatia is undoubtedly a maritime nation, with an endless coastline and a proud seafaring past. Yet there is also plenty of beauty to discover inland for those who dare to look beyond the palaces of Dubrovnik and the beaches of Istria. Imotski, for example, is one of those destinations: a charming little town a stone's throw from the border with Bosnia-Herzegovina, in the heart of the UNESCO Geopark Biokovo-Imotska Jezera. You will discover mysterious lakes, rugged mountain ridges and historical sites dating back to prehistoric times. Adrenaline junkies are in the right place too: they can go rafting, kayaking or hiking in the Blue Lake nature park. Stay in style at Emotheo Heritage Hotel, a brand new, elegant boutique hotel where you will enjoy fine dining and wonderfully comfortable rooms after an active day. What are you waiting for?
The hotel is open all year round.
This hotel offers 20 rooms and 2 suites.

The name Imotski means 'between the mountains' and you can take that quite literally. The impressive location of the town, in the Dalmatian hinterland, will catch your eye as soon as you arrive. Mix this with the typical Dalmatian building style found in the well-known seaside resorts along the coast and you know you are in a special location.
Each room is uniquely decorated, with a subtle nod to this region's rich past. They are decorated thematically, beautifully blending authentic elements with modern design. For example, accents range from replicas of archaic monuments to inspiring photographs and abstract interpretations of the spirit of Imotski. Also note the colors and materials: terracotta, stone, warm oak mixed with shades of blue. The hotel provides its own cosmetics products, all made with organic ingredients and essential oils without chemicals. Families can opt for communicating rooms.
Choose the Fairytale Luxury Suite and enjoy space, comfort and stunning views of the vast landscape.
In summer, enjoy swimming in the clear, pure waters of the nearby lakes. The numerous streams flowing through the Biokovo-Imotska Jezera Geopark are also ideal for taking a refreshing dip.
There is no wellness centre, but with such an array of activities, you simply don't have time for that. Whether you want to kayak, dive, raft, sail or swim, Imotski offers it all. A speedboat excursion to the nearby islands is also highly recommended. The area is also great for hiking, with many trails connecting lakes, villages, vineyards, sacred sites and forts. In summer, enjoy nearby musical shows, plays and exhibitions in beautiful locations.
Although there are no special facilities, children of all ages are welcome here.
When the weather is nice, definitely opt for a table in the restaurant's cosy courtyard.
A stylish outfit is appropriate for dinner, but don't forget your sports or hiking gear!
