Gulet DOLCE VITA is one of the most beautiful gulets based on the Adriatic. We say this with complete confidence, not only because we have witnessed it ourselves, but more because our clients and colleagues seem to think so, too. We’ve had wonderful reports about her dedicated crew, generous deck space and luxury accommodation.
Gulet DOLCE VITA had a full refit back in 2018 but her owners give her a significant upgrade every winter. The gulet can accommodate up to 10 guests in five en suite cabins:
- Two Master cabins
- Two double cabins
- One twin cabin
One of our colleagues recently reported:
Gulet DOLCE VITA is a really beautiful yacht with a very nice interior, looks great and is very clean all round. Little touches of decoration in the saloon, as well as the wooden structure throughout, give her a really warm and welcoming feel. You can tell that the crew is dedicated to the yacht and passionate about maintaining her in top shape. The decks look great, as do the cabins. The cabins are spacious, beautiful in wood, and offer good storage.
Outside, the aft pads are an ideal area to take the sun and are close to the dining tables, which is lovely. This area is great for socialising.
The crew of gulet DOLCE VITA are charming and couldn’t have taken better care of us. Everyone was very attentive and so genuine. We were really well looked after, from the early coffee/laptop catch up, to the evening glass of wine on deck. The cabins were cleaned while we had breakfast, very discreetly, and turned down at night before we came back on board or went down below. It all ran very smoothly and appeared effortless.
Capt Niko is such a calm and kind person and a very experienced captain. We had great chats and he seems very happy at the helm and a great leader of his crew. The service by Ivan and Marin was attentive, they were really passionate about us having the best time and not missing anything. Christian/Kiki was very gentle and helpful with the boarding/hopping between boats—and then chef Marko…!
I was really impressed with the level of hospitality and great cooking. From the delicious and freshest flavour to impeccable presentation—eating on board was a treat and excitement every day. Marko seems very confident and delighted us with the best Croatian/French/Italian dishes—all with exquisite flavours and cooked with passion. His pasta was perfect and the different fish dishes we had were also exquisite. All the meals were very varied, with different side dishes and styles, so that we could never get bored. It was just fantastic. Breakfast was also different every day and I feel like we could have ordered anything and he would have prepared it with ease. He is a real master chef!
