A haven for digital nomads and remote workers

The concept of a digital nomad is a relatively new thing. With the raise of the digital economy and remote work, many people (often young) realized that they are no longer chained to their office to do their work. Regardless if you were doing administrative work, or writing code, as long as you have your computer and a reliable internet connection, you can do your work.

You’ve unchained yourself from the office, so why not take full advantage of it and work from around the world.

The big vision with Villa Lava was to create a beautiful vacation destination where guests from around the world could relax, without having to sacrifice their way of life. We recognized that there was a gap in the expectations of modern travelers and much of what Croatia had to offer in terms of accommodation.

The modern traveler expects certain things, such as to be able to jump on a video call without issues, or to be able to check their Instagram by the pool, or even stream their favorite Netflix show to the TV. This of course is in addition to the basics, such as air condition. In short, they expect all the luxuries and comforts they have at home (and more), but with a chance in scenery. This is the traveler that we built Villa Lava for.
