The stunning new villas complement the 50 rooms and suites in the boutique resort. Perfect for families and larger groups, the spacious villas offer contemporary interiors and refined seclusion.
With impeccable design by local architect Tomislav Alujevic, owner of the award-winning architectural studio, Aalto, which integrated the villas into the landscape, without obstructing it. This creates a non-intrusive structural design that combines the use of organic and native materials, allowing the beautiful villas to blend seamlessly into their natural surroundings. This picturesque landscape is thanks to skilled landscape designer, Thomas Seconde from AC&T. The light-filled minimalist interiors, imagined by interior designer Léonie Alma Mason of LAM Studio and stunning sea views reflect Maslina Resort’s ethos of wellbeing and mindfulness, allowing guests to escape to their private sanctuary surrounded by olive trees and gorgeous, landscaped gardens.

The 300m2 Villa Litica and Villa Borovina, both have four bedrooms. Villa Litica has three king-sized bedrooms and one twin-bedroom and Villa Borovina has four king-sized bedrooms. Both villas have an open dining space, an expansive terrace and a large garage with ample space for two vehicles.

The 500m2 five-bedroom Villa Uvala is elegantly outstanding with three king-size bedrooms and two twin bedrooms and an extensive open-plan indoor living area encompassing a dining table and living room with a large fireplace, as well as an expansive kitchen with bar seating.
