Day 1:

Book a Divota Apartment and spend the day walkin' & beachin' it. 

In the style of traditional Dalmation homes, Divota Apartments take a modern approach to combining hospitality, design, and tradition. Take advantage of the home-front experience while being just steps away from the old city. Divota offers complimentary breakfast (healthy too!) and fee-based spa services for all guests. Once you've checked in and gawked at how awesome your new Split apartment is, take a scenic 30-minute walk through the promenade to the one of the many nearby beaches (like Bacvice) and enjoy your first day in Split, Croatia.

Day 2:

Take a Sugaman day trip, drink & dine.

Take an island-hopping day trip with Sugaman day tours to explore a Dalmatian Blue and Green Cave, and visit the island Hvar. Equipped with safety gear, snorkeling gear, and swimming supply goodness the Sugaman speed boats will bring you to caves that glow beneath you, sea with such a high salt content that you can float with ease, and a famous historic town (Hvar) to adore and photograph on your own.

After your Sugaman tour you will be absolutely exhausted. It is truly a full day excursion and worth every penny!

Freshen up back at your Divota abode and get ready for dinner at Chops Grill. It's one of Split's top 10 restaurants and literally drool-worthy. Located in the center of the city and walking distance from Divota, we were seated outside in a gazebo-styled setting (with option to dine inside) with immediate attention. As I looked around me, I saw every table filled with faces displaying extreme culinary satisfaction. I was confident that I made the right choice picking this spot. 

Check out some photos of our meals below. From a delicious carpaccio dressed with grana padana cheese and topped with homemade olive oil, to exquisite signature steak accompanied by Croatian wine and chocolate soufflé dessert - Chops Grill is a must-eat. 

Did I mention when I got cold from the evening breeze, the hos didn't hesitate in bringing me a blanket cover up? #Blessed.

On your last day in Split (wahhh time flies!) take advantage of Divota's amenities and eat a light breakfast before you treat yourself to one of their spa services. As someone with Lupus, I took advantage of one of their energy treatments to relax my body amidst all the hectic traveling.

It was quite beneficial as a stress reliever and my masseuse was great at being in tune with tension, pain, and problem areas. The energy treatments should be done multiple times though, which I didn't realize, so I was unable to get the full shebang since I was on a tight timeline. I'd recommend getting a one-off treatment if you are only visiting for three days. Otherwise, go all in!
