Dubrovnik Airport's Business Lounge is a quarter pipe. It is simple but clean. The view to the tarmac is excellent.

Dubrovnik Airport

Dubrovnik is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South Croatia. Its Old Town dubbed as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' is attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world. Croatia's tourism industry is clearly helping boost the country's economy.

Dubrovnik Airport which is located 20 kilometers southeast from the city is the only airport in Dubrovnik area. The airport is modern, working smoothly but not big. Unlike in busy, huge airports, you do not need much time from the main door of Dubrovnik Airport to your gate, but arriving early is recommended. You will then have time to visit the lounge.

The Only Business Lounge in the Airport

Dubrovnik Airport Business Lounge is the only VIP lounge in the airport and acting also as a Priority Pass Lounge.

The first sight gives you an impression of a clean lounge decorated simply using light shades. The lounge has almost all basic services. It has a small snack selection and drinks. There are also internet computers that feels actually a little outdated. Nowadays, a good WiFi is enough but luckily the lounge has it too.

Computers in Dubrovnik Lounge

The business lounge has business computers. It looks a little old-styled, but the computers may be beneficial for someone.

There are also a TV and magazines. Unfortunately, no charging sockets are easily found. Also, no showers are available and toilets are located outside the lounge.

The Location of the Lounge

The lounge is located after the security checks in the international area. Croatia is not part of Schengen agreement so you use the same international area always when flying out from the country. Domestic travellers can't access this lounge.

Dubrovnik Airport is small and the lounge is easy to find just by following the clear signs. After the security point, you need to take the stairs or an elevator up to the 3rd floor and you will find the lounge on the tarmac side. The lounge is not far from the gates and 5 minutes is enough to access gates from the lounge.

Spotters' Recommend

As we are plane spotters ourselves, we can recommend this lounge to travellers who love plane spotting. The lounge is next to the tarmac and there is a great view. You can easily photograph planes from your seat just next to the window.

Unfortunately, Dubrovnik Airport is not so busy and this means, you might not see many planes moving during your visit to this lounge. The lounge's windows and glass walls also surely need a deep cleaning because during our visit, they were extremely dirty. Otherwise, the lounge itself was clean.

Accepted Entry Methods

Because there is only one lounge at the airport, all lounge customers will end up to this same lounge. Business and First Class passengers are most likely invited to this lounge by the airline. However, business class passengers who have a flight with the following airlines are not accepted to this lounge: Edelweiss Air, Eurowings, Scandinavian Airlines and Vueling Airlines. Priority Pass members, visitors with Lounge Key and Diners Club members are welcome. Unfortunately, DragonPass card, American Express card, Star Alliance Silver Card, Mastercard and Visa card are not accepted as well. For easier lounge access all over the world Priority Pass is recommended.

Entry methods to Dubrovnik Lounge

Priority Pass, Diners Club and Lounge Key memberships are accepted in the lounge.

The Entrance Fee

We didn't find information what is the walk-in rate for this lounge. Perhaps, the lounge is not accepting walk-in quests to save space for other customers. The easiest way to secure an entry to this lounge is to obtain Priority Pass. Priority Pass will also be accepted in more than 1000 other lounges around the world.

Our Rating

The Easiness to Find the Lounge

The lounge is easy to find while the airport is small. Its location is also almost perfect. Only con is that domestic passengers can't access this lounge.

Comfyness

The lounge has a modern simple design that makes it comfortable. It is peaceful, not crowded and the view is good. Chairs and tables are good enough.

Seats in Dubrovnik Lounge

Seats and tables are one of the most comfortable parts in the lounge. They are spacious and comfortable.

The lounge was totally empty when we arrived. After us, a few other customers came in. It seems that there are not many people visiting the lounge what makes the lounge even more peaceful.

Magazines in Dubrovnik Lounge

The lounge had Croatian and English magazines.

Catering and Drinks

For the catering alone we would give only 2 stars. The catering was really simple. There were fruits, chips, croissants, bread, ham and sweet snacks.

Catering in Dubrovnik Lounge

The catering is not a speciality of this lounge. There are only some fruits and light snacks available.

The drink selection was clearly better and it deserves 4 stars. There were many kinds of strong spirits, wine and beer. Coffee was available from a coffee machine. Other cold drinks could be taken from a fridge.

Spirits in Dubrovnik Lounge

The lounge may have saved from the food but many different kinds of spirits were offered.

Friendliness of the Staff

The receptionist was friendly and nice. However, he tried to reject us entering by his mistaken claim that our flight is leaving soon. We had to correct his minor mistake.

There were also staff cleaning dishes and filling catering tables just on time. They were working in the background and we barely noticed them.

Overall Rating

Dubrovnik Business Lounge is surely the best lounge in the airport because it is the only one. There are no competitors so the lounge does not need to improve its services. However, the service is already at the moderate level. Don't expect a luxury lounge but a good basic lounge.

Snacks in Dubrovnik Lounge

This is the meal we had in the lounge. The meal can't replace a real lunch or dinner.

Bottom Line

We can recommend Croatia as a holiday destination. Dubrovnik is a good choice even for first-time Europe visitors.

If you own Priority Pass, reserve yourself a little time to visit this lounge. Also, business class passengers will be invited here. If you do not belong to the previous groups, visiting this lounge may be difficult. If you still wish to try it, ask for the walk-in price.
