Adriana Hvar Spa Hotel
It’s the location of this beautiful hotel that you’ll be awed by on arrival. Set on the promenade of the port of Hvar at the south-western tip of the island, you’ll find yourself in the heart of a chic restaurant and bar scene by night, with captivating views to enjoy by day. On the shores of the shimmering Adriatic, the hotel also overlooks the historic Cathedral, Arsenal, Venetian piazza, yacht harbour and pristine bay.
The spa is excellent, embracing a holistic philosophy with an extensive menu of sophisticated treatments. Inspired by the sunshine, fragrant plants and sea air, the six-level Sensorí Spa offers everything from an olive leaf and sea salt polish to a healing sea mud wrap. Head to the famed private Bonj ‘les bains’ luxury beach club and you can even have a treatment from the comfort of your sun lounger.
Meals are a lively affair at the waterfront steakhouse, Butchery&Wine, where there’s grilled top-quality steaks including Argentinian rib-eye and Scottish Black Angus strip loin. Head to The Top Bar lounge and nightclub, one of Hvar’s most popular night spots, for after-dinner drinks. Order your favourite tipple from the dramatic 19-metre-long turquoise glass bar, then relax in the deep sofas to views of the ancient city, yacht harbour and bay by candlelight.
The rooms are stylish with a focus on natural materials with fine linens, rich colours and warm wood tones. En suites have a walk-in power shower and locally produced lavender toiletries. We recommend Superior Rooms with Sea View for postcard views of the water and traditional red-roofed buildings.
