Bosnia and Herzegovina has one of the smallest coastlines in the world – just 12 miles – which is dominated by Neum, a hidden gem of a seaside town overlooking the crystalline Adriatic Sea. Sandwiched between Dubrovnik and Mostar, this small town of 4,000 people offers the beauty of the Adriatic at a fraction of the price.

This four-star hotel is the largest accommodation in Neum. Not only is it a spa and wellness hotspot, but it’s also a top wedding venue, and boasts conference facilities to boot. In typical Herzegovinian fashion, it straddles the line between business and pleasure. This means large, comfortable rooms and an outdoor infinity swimming pool, while the sea views speak for themselves. Neum’s biggest hotel – by far – is also home to one of its finest restaurants.

With 84 rooms overlooking the turquoise Adriatic, Hotel Stella doesn’t need to do a whole lot more than open its doors and let the visitors stream in. The rooms have an old-fashioned charm, whilst downstairs the marble-and-wood reception area opens out onto a glistening outdoor pool and sun terrace. Ready for the beach? Hop aboard the complimentary shuttle that will whisk you to the waterfront in minutes.

Smack bang in the heart of Neum is Hotel Agava, a four-star spot that’s mere steps from the main beach. Inside the hotel itself, you’ll find a relatively small number of rooms, giving it a personable charm, whilst also offering those obligatory sea views. Families will particularly appreciate the spacious four-bed rooms. The hotel also organises day trips to Mostar and Međugorje, not to mention Dubrovnik and Korčula.

Nothing says relaxation like having a beach directly in front of your room. That’s the main selling point of Krešić, a cluster of whitewashed apartments on the palm-flanked shorefront. The decor inside each apartment is traditional and pared back, but you won’t be spending much time there anyway. Large balconies overlooking the Adriatic and on-site parking seal the deal.

What could be better than staying in a comfortable apartment above a friendly bakery? Grab a fresh loaf for breakfast, and enjoy it with piping coffee and local honey on your private sun-drenched terrace. Rooms are functional rather than flashy, but the location is everything here. Neum Beach is 320m away, whilst local grilled fish is served up at nearby Maestral restaurant when you don’t fancy cooking.
