A perfect 10!
Everything... this little hotel/lodge is impeccably clean with every last detail well thought out... and the location is unbeatable directly on the water with a spectacular beachfront locale 😊... plus Tina the Innkeeper is absolutely outstanding and welcoming at every level... She is a perfect 10 and represents this perfect 10 lodge with class and charm that is unequaled. I will definitely stay here again... whenever I’m in Korcula... Tina you are a beautiful blessing to everyone you meet at Tara’s Lodge. Thank You for your incredibly great hospitality...

Paradise on Korcula
Tara's formed the meat in our three-hotel honeymoon in Croatia. Arriving at the hotel, we immediately felt relaxed. The bay it sits on is picturesque and quiet. The beach area is relaxing and the food at the bar as delicious as the drinks are strong. The staff is young and friendly.
The front desk arranged taxis for us, along with a wine tour and a stand up paddleboard rental. This hotel truly took care of everything, and they were so close to Korcula Old Town that we were easily able to explore while still feeling as though we were in our own quiet paradise in the Adriatic.
Cannot recommend Tara's enough! Staff, location, amenities, and the overall vibe was magnificent. Worth noting that the bed was exceptionally comfy (a bit soft but I like that), and the mosquito screen sliding door is a must as you can get the breeze and noise off the water without any unwelcome visitors. (this is an island, mosquitos exist)

Best place on Korcula
We stayed here 3 nights and could have easily stayed a week. It has a wonderful beach, great beach bistro and a very relaxing vibe. The rooms are modern and very clean. We had a sea and pool view. The staff was excellent. Every person we encountered was friendly, welcoming and sincerely interested that the guests had a good experience. What we especially loved was the water taxi. Mario would pick us up right in front and take us into Korcula Town or any waterfront restaurant. He is very knowledge and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We would go back in a second!

Clear sea water with a fantastic private location
Fancy giving a paddle board a try? Here is the perfect bay... clear sea water with a fantastic private location ... the room was great. Bar is cool and the staff are very friendly, especially the manager and the lady behind reception. The island is a dream, some great white wine and views... go on a wine tasting event!

Beatiful and magical experience.
My husband and I stayed at Tara's Lodge for our honeymoon and we had a magical experience. The hotel is close to the center of town (about a 10 minute drive) but far enough away where you feel secluded and relaxed. The hotel is nestled on a little hill with a private beach. The views are incredible and the modern rooms are perfectly sized with huge windows so you wake up to the mountains in the morning. The staff is incredible. They are all genuinely nice and accommodating. My husband has a nut allergy and the chef herself came to us to explain exactly what she puts into her food to assuage our concerns. The hotel manager greeted us with a smile every day and we even got a special honeymoon surprise treat. The food is also incredible. It's fresh, homemade, and echoes the surroundings. This is a truly a special hotel.

A step in the way to heaven
Pretty much the dreamiest place I've ever stayed. Close enough to Korčula Town to go for dinner and an afternoon of siteseeing, but you won't want to leave. Brilliant view, balcony, beach with bean bag loungers that are perfect. The restaurant is excellent, the service perfect. Calm bay for swimming and exceptionally clean everywhere.

This place was absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous property, location, restaurant and bar, and food. What made is so remarkable was the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. I really appreciated the manager greeting me and welcoming me. The rooms were so clean with fabulous views, and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. I highly recommend staying here!

Loved Korcula and Tara's Lodge - Relaxed Vibe and Great Service
Tara's Lodge is dreamy. Beautifully appointed rooms overlooking a pool and a tranquil bay. The small beach with chairs and umbrellas was a nice plus and you can order drinks from Mimi's. Food was lovely, high quality and good selection. Laura at reception is outstanding and arranged a fantastic tour of wineries and olive oil makers for us. We were with our teenagers and we all loved it and would happily return.

A little luxury, hidden gem of Korcula, FOODIE's paradise with a view
The location was perfect. Close to the old town by water taxi but just far enough to have the most spectacular and private beach. The food was gourmet and the rooms were modern and clean. We had the most stunning view of the turquoise bay and the island just across. The staff was extremely helpful. One of the most attentive and thoughtful teams I have seen at a hotel. I hope to return in spite of the long journey for us to arrive from Canada. It was worth the travel to experience this slice of paradise. The food in Old Town was exceptional as well. We travelled to Dubrovnik (with a lunchtime stop in Mljet) by private boat and that was a special touch. I would highly recommend Tara's lodge and Mimi's restaurant for any special occasion.

We loved this hotel! It was the highlight of our stay. Beautiful little gem, wish we could have stayed longer!
Review by Marie - UK (01-Aug-2018)
From the first greeting to departure all the staff were friendly and professional and committed to making our experience at Tara's Lodge a wonderful one. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, stylish and modern and very comfortable. Lots of storage space. Great shower and gorgeous products! Lovely large balcony and fabulous views. The location is peaceful and stunningly beautiful. There is an air of calm at the hotel, and the grounds themselves are beautifully maintained with a lovely garden setting leading down to the private beach, with the cleanest clearest water I have ever seen. The service and food at Mimi's bistro was faultless in our experience and we eat both lunch and dinner there on a few occasions.. The breakfast was also delicious with wonderful variety. The hotel went the extra mile in preparing a breakfast box for us the evening before our extremely early departure, which was most welcome and appreciated.

Warm, hospitable...the place just clicked. We loved it!
The view is breathtaking. Just magnificent. Having a small beach in a quiet cove with crystal clear water right in front of you was amazing! The restaurant, while not inexpensive, was actually worth the price! The food is very, very good! Mostly, what I liked, was the entire staff. Starting from Laura, the restaurant staff, the manager, and one of the owners were warm, hospitable and the place just clicked. We loved it!

Modern boutique getaway hotel with all the bells and whistles and gorgeous views
Such a beautiful setting - vibrant turquoise bay with mountain as a backdrop. We didn't leave the property once we arrived. Truly enjoyed every minute of it. Room are really nice, worth the extra $$ to get water view.

Our Stay 25-28 April 2018
What a gem of a hotel. A wonderful location by the water's edge with great views which are more impressive as the sun starts to rise in the morning. Table service for breakfast was a real plus and evening dinners (try the Fresh tuna 'asia' style) were excellent. And we will not forget the speciality cocktails. Thanks to all the staff (a real international team) who went out of their way to ensure that we had a wonderful albeit all too short a stay!

There's nothing to not love
Beautiful boutique property. Service was personal yet professional. The setting and design was spot on! The owner and his daughter "Tara" were at the hotel and took us out Octopus fishing. Loved the whole experience.

Boutique Hotel in Beautiful Hideaway Bay near Korcula Old Town
We (2 couples) stayed 3 nights after a week sailing the Dalmatian Coast - what a great find - good sized rooms, great high quality finishes and very attentive and friendly staff. Restaurant on beach is great for lazy days and dinners at night. Big bonus is quiet bay but very easy walk ~30 min into Korcula Old Town along the waters edge. Tara's team also have a restaurant called Silk in Old Town which is well worth a visit if you are craving some Asian inspired flavours. We all highly recommended Tara's Lodge and were sad to have to leave and return to work reality.

High quality boutique getaway near Old Town
What a find - boutique hotel on very scenic and private bay just 30 min stroll to Old Korcula Town - rooms great outlook and finishes - pool plus beach
club with access to Mimi's Restaurant Bar during day. Hotel strives to offer daytime options to explore Island.

Fantastic four nights!
We had a fantastic four nights in Tara's Lodge. The hotel and setting were superb and the rooms of an excellent standard. what a view to wake up too each morning. The food was also way above the standard of most of the restaurants in Korcula. The enclosed bay and landscape reminded us of Scandinavia or cape cod. The silence was very restful. korcula town itself by contrast we found too busy which simply underlined the superb location of Taras Lodge.

Modern and new
Modern boutique hotel on the north coast of Korcula Island
We had a lovely three night stay. The Hotel was very understanding as our Catamaran from Split was cancelled due to winds - hotel arranged for transfer from alternative ferry port
Food at hotel restaurant was excellent - brekky is included and you have the choice of omelette / pancakes made to order as well as buffet
Hotel has a cosy private beach which was lovely if you want to just chillax
All in all a fantastic holiday experience

Modern upscale small hotel
I had read varying reviews lately about this small hotel and was skeptical about staying there. It was wonderful. Perhaps the arrival of a new manager has made the difference in the staff's orientation to attention to its clients but it was evident that they were trying hard to be more service oriented. The rooms were spotless- breakfast offerings were limited but all you could desire. The beachfront was perfect to be able to relax and have easy access to the sea. Korcula is a wonderful island to visit and this hotel should be high for consideration on a discerning travelers list . I would definitely stay there again if we were to return to this island
