At the very heart of Hvar’s somewhat magnetic, young, fashion-conscious party scene, you’ll find the 54-room Riva Hvar Yacht Harbour Hotel – offering exactly what it says on the tin.

Our room was appointed like a capital-city bolthole, small but well formed, with a fabulous balcony and bay window facing the harbour. It’s perfect for beautiful, or rather, rich-people watching. As if Hvar isn’t already known as the St. Tropez of Croatia, the Riva adds to that reputation with its Hollywood-glam murals and white leather terrace bar. Plan not to sleep.
