Puteus Palace is a tranquil stone palace on the Dalmatian coast waiting to sweep you away

Puteus Palace dates back to 1467, making it one of the oldest on the central coast. Its towering stone walls and cobblestone courtyard tell the story of the Adriatic Sea as it has transformed throughout its 550-year history. You may even stumble across one of four original wells amongst the manicured lawns, which is how the palace got its name.

From your guest suite, you can take a step out onto your private terrace overlooking clay grooves and church peaks, or you can venture down to the courtyard and laze the afternoon away. You’ll never be too far from turquoise waters lapping the shores and the gentle sea breeze will caress you while you curl up with a good book or take a leisurely dip in the pool.

Puteus Palace prides itself in being an extraordinary culinary experience for guests, so be sure to come with an appetite. Their friendly staff cannot wait to introduce you to the cuisines of the Mediterranean and Croatian specialities in the garden.

I loved this hotel. The only downside for me was the temperature of the rooms which wasn't really that bad.

⭐️BEAUTIFUL HOTEL, BEST IN BRAC! ⭐️ 💶 €220 - £230 a night 💶 most negative reviews are old, but more details here:☑️ beautifully restored hotel, very charming☑️ Incredibly friendly and helpful staff☑️ really excellent restaurant! Great food and drink - table of 2 with win and desert €130 euro 💶☑️ location and surrounding town is beautiful☑️ rooms well sized, not massive but also not ‘small’ as some offer reviews mentioned (and we were staying in there smallest room)☑️ breakfast was nice, will make eggs and pancakes for your fresh. Good selection on continental buffet☑️ small hotel, never felt crowded and must only be about 12 rooms☑️ parking at the front of the hotel☑️ air condition works perfect fine☑️ beautiful pool with service from the bar☑️ very very quiet (church bell the exception)🔘church bell ringing (at night) is a thing, especially at 6am when it goes nuts. But tbh, if you know about it it’s not that bad. Windows are double glazed, with fitted shutters and curtains.👍 would very much recommend 👍

A wonderful place and one of the nicest hotels we’ve ever been to. Placed in a five centuries old city palace, the hotel has been renovated with its heritage first and all the modern facilities later. Really nice blend of history and contemporary with elegance and classy style, so different from concrete mastodons with several hundreds of rooms or shady and overpriced private accommodations with old or cheap furniture and no service, that doesn’t match the price, that can be found all over the Croatian coast. This hotel, among other Heritage hotels in Croatia is something we need more. A guest can be easily spoiled here and enjoy the services such as a heated swimming pool with sea water, spa, high class restaurant, great rooms and a hotel breakfast to die for. But none of that couldn’t happen without everyday efforts of the owners and the excellent staff! The hospitality is in the details and here you can find so many details that creates experience rather than just “overnight stay”, which doesn’t fit into short post. All in all, if you want to relax properly and experience the great hospitality in Croatia, in an island town not overcrowded with tourists, feel free to choose this small hotel that meets the big expectations. You will not regret a single moment here.

Food, ambience and service was impeccable. The Good White fish was cooked to perfection as was the Tomahawk Steak!! Seven of us for dinner and we were seven for seven in food enjoyment. Received great advice from our server in terms of food selection, amount and wine pairing.

I have not met nicer and kinder staff in a long time. Everyone was so welcoming and they did everything we could have asked for. We were there with a group and everyone was super pleased with their stay. The service was excellent. :)Special thanks to the ladies at the reception and the F&B staff, they were some of the nicest people we have met in any hotel in a long time.Would 100% recommend!

Set in a hidden bay on the north coast of Brac, this hotel is beautifully renovated and retains some stunning original features. Staff were really friendly and welcoming, and the pool area is a real treat. I loved dining under the huge trees in the garden, and sitting on my terrace drinking coffee in the mornings - felt like royalty in a real palace! The food is delicious, too. I especially enjoyed the indulgent breakfast.

About Sustainability


Thyme, the treasured herb, indicates that the property follows local legislation with regards to the environment and has implemented a few eco-friendly common practices

  • Puteus Palace has been refurbished using only locally sourced, eco-friendly materials, and all of the room decors were purchased from local artisans.
  • The gardens are teeming with local plant species and you may even get to try some of the spoils in the on-site restaurant.
  • Energy systems around the hotel are both renewable and energy-saving. You will even have a thermostat in your room to avoid energy waste.
  • Much of the in-room amenities are locally sourced, organic, and free of single-use plastics.
  • Puteus Palace truly believes in minimizing waste. For this reason, wastewater is treated and reused, yard trimming is composted and recycling is a priority on site.

Explore the location

Puteus Palace is centrally located on the island of Brač and is merely a hop, skip, and jump to plenty of Croatia’s best attractions. Over 5 different restaurants are all within walking distance, as is the seaside if you’re up for a stroll. Hike up Vidova Gora, the highest mountain of all islands on the coast, take a trip to Golden Horn Beach, or visit ancient monasteries all within 20 minutes of Puteus Palace. 


Note though since so much walking is required around Brač, it is not well suited for patrons with mobility challenges.
