Dolac bb Hvar 21450 Croatia


Historic early 20th century beach club near renovated Amfora Resort in Hvar offers a Roman-inspired sanctuary of spa services, nutritional cuisine, and mattress service for burgeoning beach scene. Stone columns frame a rooftop lounge area with central bar pouring tropical cocktails and freshly squeezed juices. Underneath the lounge area are a series of concrete cabanas and sprawling patio area furnished with canvas loungers and crème-colored umbrellas available for daily rental. Two private spa cabanas offer hourly treatment like deep-tissue and sports massage. The terrace environment offers the closest thing to St. Tropez-style beach club in Croatia, except for the Amfora pool across the way with a private beach of screaming naked toddlers.

The Food

It was our favorite meal while on Hvar, a healthy spa-minded menu of salads and sandwiches composed of local produce and market-fresh fish. The lunch-theme menu offers seasonal selections of seafood dishes, grilled meats and light snacks conducive to long afternoons at the beach. Service could use a little coaxing, attended by a polite but often-bewildered staff not quite able to understand the language of luxury. Cocktails include a lengthy wine list with imported roses, as well as juice-infused concoctions of tangy sweetness.

Last Word

Croatian-spin on the St. Tropez beach club, minus the ritzy celebrities and wallet-robbing prices.
