Best Hvar Hotels

Hvar Hotels

With air perfumed by lavender and vineyards cascading down its hillsides, Hvar has grown in reputation as an oasis of tranquillity through recent years. Fill your days exploring yacht-clad harbours, ambling through its maze of winding streets, or hitting the Pakleni Island beaches to bathe in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea. As night falls, head to a waterfront bar to sip cocktails with the party people and dance well into the early hours. Famous for wine-making, lavender fields, and traditionally a fishing hub, Hvar is a sensory experience of Croatian cuisine, floral aromas, and panoramic views of pristine coastline.

Things to see

Hvar is in the shadow of the goliath fortress Spanjola, built when Venetians ruled the area in the 16th century. Walking around its spacious corridors, visitors are immersed into the past whilst marvelling at the remains of the Venetian architecture. Exhibits from medieval times to antiquity explore the town’s cultural heritage, and views across the town and the sea below are the best in Hvar. Once finished, take a gentle stroll down the pinewood-lined trail back into the heart of Hvar, a concoction of naturally growing herbs flavouring the air as you descend. The centre of the Hvar itself is a labyrinth of mazing, stone walkways where the delicate aroma of grilled seafood lingers from the array of restaurants in the area. With vineyard tours in the northern part of the island as well as the Palmizana Marina to south west – with transfers to Dubrovnik and Rijeka – you can extend your journey to your own schedule. For the best beaches, head to the Pakleni Islands in the harbour area of Hvar, reachable by a short boat trip.

Hotels in Hvar

Luxury hotels in Hvar blend seamlessly into the background of the awe-inspiring landscape, resplendent with craggy hillsides, purple blots of lavender and sprawling terracotta houses. Many Hvar hotels have been built fairly recently due to the growing tourist demand and are stocked with the latest amenities. Dine on the rooftops overlooking the Pakleni Islands - that sparkle in the water like giant floating lanterns when the sun sets. Indulge in spa facilities and retire to your bed to relax with satellite TV. Families are welcomed, with a range of mid-level hotels that are cheaper and offer meals as well as free WiFi. Budget travellers are also well-catered for, with a number of inexpensive hostels offering basic amenities within walking distance of all the major Hvar attractions.

Where to stay

Hvar is a gently ascending mass of attractive buildings that stretch up from the harbour right back to the Spanjola fortress in the hills. In between, both guesthouses and hotels are in close proximity to the attractions, town centre, and the coastline. Dotted along the coast some of the more luxury Hvar hotels can be found, so renting a car is advised if you’re after something with a little more sophistication and elegance but with the freedom to get where you wish. With accommodation concentrated so close to the coast, you are never far away from a port or road to open up another place to explore.

How to get to Hvar

Flights from most European airports are available to Resnik Airport in the Croatian city of Split. From Split, there are regular catamarans direct to Hvar Town as well as ferries to Stari Grad Port which is a quick drive or bus ride away from Hvar. Car rental is reasonably priced and available throughout the town, and far more cost-effective than the sometimes expensive taxis.
