We think Hotel Podstine has some of the best views to be found in Croatia.
Hotel Podstine has just 40 fully air conditioned ensuite rooms, most with balcony, all have mini bar, safe, satellite TV, free wifi. Room service is offered from 11:00 – 23:00 every day. All Guests are given an extra special welcome, service levels are friendly and excellent. For those arriving by sea, the hotel also boasts its own yacht berth.
The hotel’s 4 star rating is well deserved given the facilities, rooms and service levels. Completely Croatia Guests are always accommodated in the main Hotel building, NOT the separate annexe.
There is an excellent wellness centre with a fitness room, outdoor pool, sauna and spa service. The restful ambience of a Roman spa is lovely.
For the active, there are tennis courts 300m from the hotel. There are also some excellent walking routes around Hvar. Whether your level of expertise is in tougher physical walking, or more of a gentle amble, there are some superb routes which take in the inland lavender growing areas, as well as incorporating some wonderful sea views.
Only a 20 minute stroll along the shore from bustling Hvar town, this hotel is ideal for couples wishing for a quiet or a romantic getaway yet to be close to some nightlife. Ask about the wine tasting trip to the Tomic vinery – its a wonderful trip and we bet you don’t come back empty handed! The wines are superb.
The hotel also has its own private platform beach where guests may enjoy the complimentary use of sunbeds, parasols and shower facilities. There’s also a scuba diving school here as well. A drinks service is also provided on the beach from the attentive staff.
To the rear of the hotel is the restaurant which also has an extensive outdoor terrace. This makes the most of the stunning sea views and is perfect for a leisurely breakfast or pre dinner drink. Hot and cold buffet breakfast are served here. Enjoy both International and Dalmatian cuisine during the evening (we love the black risotto here!).
Take a day trip to the Pakleni Islands – a Robinson Crusoe experience. Dance the night away in Hvar town. Hire a moped to explore the inland lavender fields.
In peak season, the hotel also operates a shuttle service on request into Hvar Town at a small local charge of approximately £6 per person return.
Completely Croatia says:- We think Hotel Podstine is a real romantic hideaway. Strongly recommended for couples seeking a quiet location yet with easy access to the buzzing restaurants and nightlife of Hvar town.
