Decompress from the bustle of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast at the boutique Hotel Adriana on the picturesque island of Hvar. With just 59 airy rooms and an envious spot fronting the harbor, the ambience is intimate and the focus is on water-based relaxation. From the Sensori spa, with its hydrotherapy circuit and marine-inspired treatments such as the healing sea mud wrap, to the rooftop saltwater pool with jaw-on-the-floor views, this divine hotel doesn’t disappoint. Guestrooms have natural hardwood floors, white linens with lavender bed runners and orange throw pillows and offer views of the old city or harbor. But with a see-and-be-seen beach club set in a revamped 1930s colonnaded building, a chill rooftop bar and a trendy restaurant, you won’t spend much time in your room.
In the Area
Continue the marine theme by poking around in the island’s hidden coves and secluded bays, then hop on a water taxi for a 30-minute ride to the Paklina Islands, with their beautiful beaches and liberal clothing policy (as in, birthday suits welcome.) Back on Hvar, remnants of the town’s medieval past are everywhere, including the impressive Cathedral of St. Stjepana, which houses a four-story bell tower and ornate organ pipes. Ascend the stairs to rooftop restaurant Luna to sample simple-yet-sublime dishes like grilled calamari.
How to Get There
View from room was unbeatable, service was 5 stars and breakfast was one of the tastiest I've ever eaten in my life. Hvar on its own was also magnificent. Ask the front desk to help you arrange some e-bikes and you'll have a blast!
Very friendly staff, excellent facilities, great breakfast buffet, and daily tea in the afternoon. A memorable stay on one of the three locations on our family trip to Croatia last May. Even after we checked out the personal service didn't. I left my passport locked in the room safe and didn't discover that it was missing until we had arrived in Split. Iris Butorovic got it onto the next boat out of Hvar to Split and I got it back that day. Thank you Iris!
The Adriana is located in the center of the Town of Hvar on the harbor. The rooms are clean and quiet. If you go, visit the lounge on the fifth floor for a great view of the harbor and the town. Then go out and climb up to the spa on the hill above the hotel for even better views of the city and the Spanish Fortress. You will want to do this during the day and in the evening to see the city and the fortress under different lighting conditions. Internet is free.
Tiny, tiny rooms. There was just barely enough room to open two suitcases, even using all the skills I've learned playing Tetris. And at that, we had one of the larger rooms that didn't face the harbor -- the harbor facing rooms were even smaller.
The combined sink and shower area was less than 3 square meters, see the photos. When you got out of the shower, you couldn't avoid dripping water on the floor in front of the sink. The door to the toilet collided with the door to the hallway, so you couldn't open both at the same time.
But the hotel service was excellent, and the location was beautiful, right on Hvar harbor. Tens of thousands of tourists come to Hvar every summer for good reason. We were here in October, when it was still sunny and pleasantly warm, but not too crowded.
We spent 3 nights in Hvar at this beautiful hotel on our honeymoon. They served us Prosecco as we waited in line to check in and our honeymoon package included breakfast, cocktails, a couples massage and a 5 course meal.
Breakfast was always nice because Petra was more than a delight every morning. She went above and beyond every time we saw her.
We will definitely be returning, I can’t wait!
