Hotel Description

There was a time when the phrase “Croatia’s hippest island” would have sounded like some kind of riddle, but to spend fifteen minutes in Hvar is to know without a doubt that those days are long gone. In a town where super-yachts compete for attention with the latest celebrity visitors and where even the swimwear is strictly couture, the Amfora could almost be called modest. Sure, it’s a 324-room mega-resort with an enormous, cascading pool as a centerpiece, but with its restrained, clean-lined rooms and its tranquil bayside setting ten minutes outside of town, it’s practically spartan by local standards.

Not to knock the incredible people-watching along the town’s promenade or the dance-all-night parties at the stylish bars, but it could all disappear and you’d still be left with an unbelievably idyllic slice of the Mediterranean coast. It’s a place where Renaissance-style homes dot craggy hills that rise from the bluer-than-blue water of the Adriatic Sea. To say that the air smells like lavender, which it does, is to understate the case; at the right time of year you might also pick up notes of mint, sage, oregano and wild oranges — and that’s still the short list.

But about that pool…. Scattered among its various sections and tiers, you’ll find curtained day beds, open-air dining patios covered with red-tile roofs, a swim-up bar, rock features and gnarly old trees rising from the water. There are four restaurants, a fifth-floor gym with incredible views, a couple of ballrooms and access to more on- and off-site activities and facilities than you could ever exhaust. Given the entertainment on offer in town and at the hotel, you’ll need some time to recharge in the room. While all but the standard rooms have open-air balconies, opt for a junior suite to get a guaranteed sea view. Looking out over the Adriatic with a gentle breeze blowing in, you’ll remember why everyone started coming here in the first place.
