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
After a wonderful holiday on Brač - see Lemon Garden review. It was down with a bump here. It is the pits. Nice setting but that’s where it ends. Mario on reception ranks as the rudest most unpleasant person we have met in the hospitality trade! Completely disengaged and surly. Find a new job man !!
The rooms are kitsch 1970s, tiny and poorly lit, soviet style. Fine if they weren’t charging €400 per night for this dump. The AC is woeful. Breakfast appalling.
Their pick up guy didn’t know where he was coming to collect us at the port 30 mins away and arrived half hour late.
Do not go here.
The Top bar produces a great view of the harbour and hillsides surrounding Hvar! It was wonderful to watch the boats roll in and out of the bay as the sun drew down over the horizon!
How ever this came at a cost, expensive for the area but still cheaper than some places back in the UK.
Went to 4th floor bar as told it was a good viewing point to see Hvar (which it is) on way back from a walk on promenade. Decided to get drinks. Waitress brought them. Then 5 minutes later asked for us to pay as she was "finishing her shift". She was not as was still there by the time we left. This was incredibly rude and unprofessional.
