The Hotel Punta complex is situated in the leading tourist destination on the Šibenik Riviera – Vodice. The greatest advantage of this destination is the excellent connections to two airports, excellent road access and a modern ship line.
Vodice is known for its liveliness, the diversity of its tourism offer and the proximity of attractive destinations. Surrounded by the beauty of the sea, the islands, waterways and national parks, this unconventional town invites travellers and passers-by looking for a relaxing, healthy and active holiday, entertainment and recreation. Cheerful, noisy and busy during the bustle of the day, and yet quiet, charming and magical at sunset and in the beauty of the calm night… that's Vodice.
Vodice has been recognised as one of the best entertainment venues on the Croatian seaboard. During the peak season the numerous cafés and bars draw thousands of young people looking for entertainment. The fun continues at several nightclubs, the best known of which is the Hacienda, frequently a destination for international celebrities like Eva Longoria, Boy George and many others, and for local celebrities who stayed at the Hotel Punta after their concerts, including David Guetta, Boy George, Saša Matić, Severina, Neno Belan, Boris Novković and many others.
Bars & Cafés
Vodice is home to many quality bars and authentic local cafés. Nestled on the beaches of small coves, the ancient streets of the town or on the waterfront in the town core, they are a prelude to parties every summer evening. Pick your genre, perhaps local, pop or foreign music, or lounge on a wooden bench listening to the sounds of local a cappella klapa bands… as a romantic duo or in lively company… this is the daily image of summer nights in Vodice.
Krka National Park is home to the largest and best-known waterfalls in the Dalmatia region and is located in the immediate vicinity of Hotel Punta. With its seven travertine falls and a total drop of 242 metres, Krka is a natural karst phenomenon. It is a natural and preserved ecosystem almost untouched by human hands and is a not-to-be-missed destination for all those who visit Vodice. The Krka falls, with their abundance of running water, fish and aquatic flora offers every visitor and unforgettable experience of natural beauty. The isle of Visovac with its 15th century Franciscan monastery is a trademark symbol of this national park, while the natural phenomenon of the Roški slap falls will leave any visitor breathless.
Kornati National Park is the largest archipelago in the Adriatic and consists of 89 islands, isles and rocks. Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once wrote that, "On the last day of the Creation God desired to crown His work, and thus created the Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath."
