Boutique Euro-glam party pad with Tinseltown motifs and a buzzy waterfront club
A magnet for Croatia’s young, fashion-conscious party set, Hvar is busy trying to position itself as the St. Tropez of the Adriatic, and the hip, 54-room Riva Hvar Yacht Harbour Hotel is exhibit A. Guestrooms feature views of either the historic old town or the marina and are styled to pay homage to the golden era of Hollywood, with oversized black-and-white images of silver screen stars such as Bridget Bardot and Audrey Hepburn gazing down from the headboards. The vibrant color scheme – lipstick red and burnt orange details – suits the fun-loving crowd that gathers in the waterfront BB Club to dance and flirt while the boats bob in the marina just a few feet away.
In the Area
Take a cue from the free-spirited Croatian kids and hit Jerolim Beach, on the lovely Paklina Islands, which has been named the number one nudist beach in the world. Then, ramble around the Roman ruins on the chain’s largest island, Vlaka. Head back to Hvar for umbrella drinks and DJ-spun tunes by the sand at the Hula Hula beach bar, where celebrities like Beyonce have been known bust a move. And if sleep’s really not on your agenda, join the legendary Full Moon Night parties at Carpe Diem nightclub.
