Lopud – The refurbished Lafodia opens its doors

Lopud – The refurbished Lafodia opens its doors
After an almost three year long refurbishment process and 40 million invested euros, the Lafodia Hotel & Resort on Lopud has opened its doors. The four star hotel has 182 rooms and a string of additional facilities: bars, restaurants, pools, a tennis court and a congress hall with a hundred and fifty seats. Far from the bustle of the city, surrounded by the sea and palm trees, the hotel offers ideal accommodation for guests looking for an intimate place to relax. Located along the sea itself, the hotel is surrounded by a beautiful forest and quiet landscape because there are no motorised vehicles on Lopud. It is located a half an hours walk from the well known sandy beach Šunj, while Dubrovnik, which is nine miles away, can be reached in less than 50 minutes sailing.

As part of the Elafit Islands, Lopud is a small jewel in the blueness of the Adriatic Sea. Its name comes from the Greek Dalafot, which was later Romanised into Lafod. Second in size among the Elafit Islands, Lopud is located northwest of Dubrovnik, between the islands Koločep and Šipan and throughout history it was often referred to as the middle island (Insula Media). The surface of the island is 4.63 square km, with a population of around 220. Lopud has 11.5 km of coast and a beautiful 1.2 km long sandy beach. Thanks to the mild climate with around 2600 sunny hours per annum, the island is covered with dense Mediterranean vegetation.

Lopud used to be the island of captains – its inhabitants were the ones who mostly contributed to the maritime affairs of Dubrovnik Republic.

According to Dubrovnik`s historian Razzi, Lopud of the 16th century had 30 churches, numerous summer houses, a few convents and a lot more inhabitants that today. Ruins of early mediaeval churches, summer houses and forts can still be seen on Lopud.
