Amfora, Hvar

As Croatian hideaways go, The Amfora’s 1930’s art deco exterior means that it is positively modern.  However, it’s still party to that faultless Croatian combination of romantic nostalgia, rugged natural beauty and modern elegance that we have fallen head over heels for.  The Amfora Resort peps this up in hip Hvar with its ultra-lux Bonj ‘les bains’ beach club.


Hvar, flung out in the Adriatic a ferry ride south of Split, has well and truly claimed its spot as one of Eastern Europe’s hippest hideaways.  Perfect for those who seek the effortless transition from secluded beach by day to teeming rooftop bar come sundown. Amfora captures the absolute best of this.  Tucked away in the bay just west of Hvar’s Harbour above tranquil turquoise waters, yet take a short stroll through lush pine groves to find yourself in the centre of Hvar moving to the beat along the harbour wall.

Your Room

For us, it is the Amfora’s breath-taking position overlooking the Pakleni Islands that makes this place a real jewel on Hvar’s coastline; it really is unbeatable.  The rooms offer the perfect vantage point with their airy minimalist design and modern comforts.  Fling open floor to ceiling glass doors and step out on to vast balconies to let Croatia’s natural beauty take centre stage.

Why we like it

The Amfora embraces all that Croatia has to offer.  Natural beauty meets sophisticated modern design here as you can both get away from it all and find total escapism or listen in on some of Croatia’s top DJ’s playing from the rooftops.
