A Dubrovnik resident for 15 years, Iva moved to the city to complete her studies in tourism management in 2002, and never wanted to leave. She was enchanted by the ancient Croatian port.
Originally from Široki Brijeg in Bosnia and Herzegovina, today, Iva lives in nearby Trsteno with her husband and daughter. She is also one of Sun Gardens Dubrovnik’s original employees: she started out at the reception desk in 2009, eventually working her way up the ranks to front office manager. Now she oversees a team of 40 staff members, while making sure her department’s day-to-day operations are running smoothly, and helping visitors make the most of their time at the hotel. “From special reservations, to little errands in town, or recommendations on things to do in Dubrovnik, it makes up happy to assist guests with whatever they may need during their stay with us.”
