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
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!
It was very unfortunate that the weather was very bad the 2 days I was in Hvar, but the staff at Adriana hotel made me forget all about that!! I was able to enjoy the very nice hotel and everything it has to offer: the spa, the pool, the terrace (just for a little bit!), the restaurant, the food, the amazing breakfast buffet, etc.
The highlight of my stay at Adriana was the amazing staff!! Their attention to details is phenomenal, they think of everything... and then more!!
First the arrival:
- 2 very nice men (I believe one of them was named jakša) picked up my bag from the ferry. After a very bad ride it was more than appreciated!
- I was greated by Ilona at the reception who was really friendly and helpful at answering my questions and providing all necessary information for a great stay. I was also offered a glass of prosecco, on top of that!
- When I arrived in the room, a welcome letter and macarons were waiting for me.
The breakfast buffet is just over the top!! Homemade juice, yogourt, eggs, sausages, bacon, all kinds of bread, fruits, meats, cheese and nuts. Again, the staff was just really amazing, Petra and Nebj were friendly, welcoming and always smiling.
Linda, the receptionist, was extremely kind and helpful. She helped me understand all the spa treatments offered and she even also took time to tell me about places to visit around the island!
My treatments (massage and facial) with Mateja were also very great!! Mateja took the time to make me feel comfortable and explain the treatments and the products used in great details. The massage and facial with the island's scent (lavender, rosemary, etc.) were wonderful and so relaxing! I definitely recommend enjoying a spa day at Sensori Spa while in Hvar!
I could go on and on and on about how this place and its people were great! The little attentions and details were much appreciated. The hotel is modern. Extremely well located. And the rooms and spaces are very clean and well furnished.
We spent 2 nights here, wished we could have stayed for more! The bar is lovely any time of day, especially as the sun is setting. We had a bottle of local wine that was delicious, affordable and recommended by our server . The hotel is beautifully designed. Rooms are modern, not large but with great views of the harbor with big opening windows. Breakfasts were delicious with many, many choices. Service was excellent and always accommodating!
I really, really wanted to like this hotel. Sadly it just didn't meet expectations. I have to say though that the guys that bring your bags to and from the catamaran are wonderful. We arrived the first week of October and Hvar had just had a huge storm. Because of this the pool/jacuzzi was closed. This is understandable. They said we could use the jacuzzi in the onsite spa. The problem with this was that every time I called to go use it, they were booked up until 8pm at night. My biggest complaint is the rooms. We had paid for an upgraded ocean view. The view is beautiful. The room is decorated tastefully but is much too small. I had to close the window every time i wanted to get out of bed so I wouldn't hit it. We specifically only book hotels with Air conditioning. Once we settled in our room, we noticed the AC would not come on. We asked the front desk about it and they said they had turned the AC to the building off on OCT 1 and that we should leave our windows open. We were not happy but what could we do. At this point I wish we would of changed hotels. That night since we had to keep our windows open for air, we were not able to sleep because everyone that walked by or was partying downstairs(Pub/disco right down the way) you could hear till 1am. Then at 6am the church bells start. Im not even going to talk about the mosquito bites. We are staying with 4 other couples and their experience was just as bad as ours. We went to the front desk and offered to pay more for better room, but they were not able to accommodate.
