We visited Kalamota during October 2016. We stayed for a week on an all inclusive package booked at the last minute through Thomson. It was our first experience of an all inclusive holiday and was a very positive experience. The holiday proved to be one of the most relaxing breaks we have experienced for a number of years. Being an... More

Firstly, we did not originally book this hotel, but the one we did book was closing for the winter and Thomson gave us about 5 mins to chose another hotel. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are amazing, but there are a few issues. The rooms are very very small and we had a suite, the bathroom was so... More

Visited the Kalamota hotel for 10 days at the beginning of October. As a four star hotel, the accommodation, service and food were all very good.

Visited August 2015 , superb location and fantastic hotel . The restaurants were excellent especially the one off site (just a stroll away ) . Definitely be a place I would re visit . One slight downside was the pool got dirty very quick and had to be emptied weekly . Hopefully this has been resolved now .

We stayed at the Kalamota Island Resort mid October 2016 The transfer to the hotel was unnecessarily long. A huge wait in the airport for luggage, then a bus ride, then a long wait on the ferry for the cruise guests to catch up. 3 hours for a 25km trip. It seems if you’re on a cruise you get priority...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sensimar Kalamota Island Resort had an overall and complete renovation in 2013/2014 into an all-inclusive couples and adults (over 18) only resort, and further renovations for season 2015. Sensimar Kalamota Island Resort is the only hotel on the island with a dense countryside of palms, orange and olive trees. Kolocep is a traffic-free island across the amazing city of Dubrovnik. The island has only 160 friendly inhabitants and 250 sunny days a year that give you a sensation of living on your own private island, only 30 minutes by boat from Dubrovnik. At Sensimar Kalamota Island Resort guests are courted with nature, assisted by surroundings that provide a full experience of a well-deserved holiday. The property and staff are intertwined to stimulate all senses, pastimes and leisure pursuits.
