When you visit this place, you will most certainly be seduced by the story, the concept, and its uniqueness. Villa Nai 3.3 is a luxurious, organic villa created amidst a hundred-year-old organic olive groove, located on the rustic island of Dugi Otok, nearby Telašića Nature Park, and adored by yachts, Kornati National Park. Its easy-going atmosphere appeals to the guests coming here to relax and recharge. We present you the destination of choice for those seeking a hedonistic escape.
Renowned Croatian architect Nikola Bašić imagined this to be a place that is adapting to the nature surrounding it, nothing obtrusive, but rather an unpretentious property wholly immersed in nature. In this project, he combined the hotel, the oil mill, and the tasting room.
The unusual hotel name comes from the old Dalmatia dialect word for snow nai, and the 3.3 refers to the three-and-a-half-days of snowfall that was the climate optimum for producing good olives. Today, the name 3.3 stands for the olive oil, spa essential oil and their signature cocktail.
Completely built from stone harvested from the olive grove, this one-level property boasts five rooms and three suits, each slightly different. Each stone has been placed tactically to absorb and reflect sunlight beams, making for a seamless blend among nature. The interiors feature designer furniture in perfect sync with nature.
Spacious and bright rooms feature furnishing by renowned Giorgetti, floor-to-ceiling windows, state-of-the-art technology like finger-touch light fixtures, the door that locks itself, or electric curtains. Its built-in wardrobe space, free-standing bathtub, and Hermès toiletries do invite for a complete luxurious escape. Each unit features private outdoor terraces overlooking the sea, olive groves, or the pool. A perfect spot for stargazing on the terrace’s cozy furniture.
You can count on a professional, welcoming, and discreet service and the most spoiling experience. What do you think of the saltwater infinity pool with views of the Adriatic and neighboring islands? Or perhaps, playing tennis on the extra large tennis court? You can let yourself to the professional hands of Balinese masseurs performing face and body treatments in the venue’s signature spa. There’s also a sauna, hot tub, and a small outdoor gym hewn into the rocks. Private skippered sailing trips, and big-game fishing can be arranged per the guests’ wishes.
Villa Tai 3.3 features two restaurants and a bar for all-day indulgence and celebration of hedonism.
Head Chef Denis Galić has worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy and Asia. He emphasizes fresh local seasonal produce, foraging delicacies, and Dalmatian wines. Farm-to-fork dining is definitely a thing here. You can witness buckets of freshly caught fish or their own fruit and vegetable garden planted on the roof of the property.
An ultra-chic agrotourism, Villa Nai showcases the very best of Dalmatian produce and Croatian design. It also makes a superb winter retreat with fireplaces in the reception and suites, plus under-floor heating throughout.
