Whilst on paper the glass façade and garden terraces of Hotel Adriana might seem incongruous with its setting on Hvar’s waterfront, this stylish hotel’s rooftop bar offers stunning views of the old city centre and blend rather nicely with its neoclassical architecture.
There are 59 bedrooms and suites available of which some over-look Hvar's stunningly beautiful harbour; Jacques Cousteau himself said they were the clearest waters he had ever seen. Floating in the hotel's rooftop indoor pool has to be one of the most relaxing ways to spend an afternoon, and if guests want to treat themselves to any of the seven types of massage on offer they should probably be careful not to slip into a blissful coma.
The Val Marina restaurant specialises in Mediterranean cuisine and has harbour views, which create quite the idyllic dining setting. The Top bar is the place to be seen in Hvar and the party runs deep into the night. If guests prefer the quieter life though, the rooms have recently been renovated with glazed windows and thick walls to ensure that one won't hear a whisper.
They have a roof top spa lounge from noon till five.
