Riva Hvar Yacht Harbour Hotel: luxury on the waterfront in Croatia

If you are going to Hvar in Croatia and want to stay in a beautiful boutique hotel right on the water, check out the Riva Hvar Yacht Harbour Hotel. The hotel is located in a renovated 19th century Italian villa only minutes from the historic center of Hvar.

The rooms are small but decorated with flair (huge black and white photos of movie stars like Audrey Hepburn adorn the walls); the suites are larger and the Riva marina suite in particular offers more space and privacy with a private terrace facing the yacht harbour. Rates for a double room start at around 100 EUR. September is a good time to go to Hvar because the busiest holiday season is over, but the weather is still reliably sunny and warm.

The best way to enjoy your stay at the hotel is to hang out at the BB Club, the Riva’s waterfront terrace which turns into a nightclub with DJs. There is also a Japanese restaurant on the premises serving fresh seafood dishes.
