Hotel Saudade


About Hotel Saudade

Hotel Saudade represents a stylish blend of contemporary comfort, excellent service and Mediterranean experience. Situated in the picturesque town of Gradac, next to the main beach and not far from the centre (a short walk along the beach promenade), we believe it is a great option for guests searching an active holiday.

The hotel is built in Mediterranean style with just 28 rooms in a unique location with the beach directly in front of the hotel and additionally situated on the sunny side of the bay surrounded by pine trees with views to the beautiful Peljesac peninsula, Hvar and Brac islands and the peaks of the Biokovo mountains. It is approximately equidistant from Split and Dubrovnik.

According to the hotel owner's "Saudade is a word that comes from the Portuguese language and culture, a word that tries to describe the unique feeling of positive energy, a word that is impossible to translate into any other language. The most similar words are: nostalgia, longing."
