Stari Grad, Hvar, Croatia
Tucked away near the UNESCO-protected town of Stari Grad on the Croatian island of Hvar lies a resort that blends with it’s natural surroundings and embodies the idea of “mindful luxury”, Maslina Resort. Croatian architects and French interior designers created this family-owned boutique property to offer an eco-friendly and contemporary resort inspired by nature’s elements.
Their commitment to sustainability is even present in the name. Maslina means ‘olive’, and the original olive trees from the grove that grew here were saved and relocated and now shade the two pools of the hotel.
The design at Maslina Resort offers up a love letter to the Mediterranean, inspired by the natural elements that surround the property. Each of Maslina’s rooms, suites, and villas are decorated with organic materials, many of which were sourced from the island itself, and all enjoy stunning views of the sea and Dalmatian coast.
Discover the history and culture of Hvar without even leaving your room through the touches of terracotta, Brac island stone, brass, and local woods used throughout the design. With a variety of room types ranging from the spacious entry-level Bay Room to Pool Suites with stunning views, large terraces and private plunge pools, and even multi-bedroom villa options, there’s a perfect room for every guest.
All of Maslina’s fifty-three spacious rooms, suites, and villas enjoy stunning sea views, total privacy, and absolute comfort

If guests are more inclined to stay close to home, there’s no shortage of amenities on property to satisfy you! Spend an indulgent day being pampered in the Pharomatique Spa – the seafront location surrounded by native pines and olive trees is the height of relaxation. Many of the products are made from herbs and botanicals grown on the property.
For a more profound wellness experience, take part in some of the classes available on site like pilates, ashtanga yoga and reiki sessions. If stretching out on a beach towel instead of a yoga mat is more your style, head down to the private beach club or the infinity pool to relax next to the water and enjoy a selection of delicious snacks and juices made from local ingredients. End your day at A-Bay Beach Bar and enjoy craft cocktails as the sun sets.
The property also has a family pool and an outstanding kid’s club with fun activities like a climbing wall and pizza-making classes for the younger guests!
As a Relais & Chateaux member, it stands to reason that the food and beverage options at Maslina are delicious. Order tasty bites all day at A-Bay Beach Bar, or venture to The Restaurant for a Dalmatian mainstay, the gregada fish stew, a tribute to Croatia’s coast. The lemon-soufflé pancake with orange-honey butter and whipped ricotta is a breakfast standout.
Get out & Explore:
With its secluded location away from Hvar Town, Maslina offers a peaceful home base to explore the island. Take one of the handcrafted wooden bikes out for a ride along the seaside or make the 10-minute ride into Stari Grad to explore the narrow, cobbled lanes. If guests prefer to venture further afield, the lavender fields of Velo Grablje village are easily reached by car, and the waters surrounding Hvar offer many opportunities to explore secret coves and rugged islands of the Pakleni archipelago or even the larger islands of Brač and Vis.
