In a secluded bay near Stari Grad, this stylish escape opened in summer 2020. Designed to harmonise with the existing landscape, it’s built into a hillside with pines and olive trees.

All rooms have sea-view terraces (some with private plunge pools), wood or terracotta-tile floors, and bathrooms with Brac-stone washbasins.

The Michelin-starred French chef creates exquisite Mediterranean cuisine from local seasonal produce, served with wine pairing overlooking the infinity pool, while the beach bar does ceviche and champagne for bathers on wooden decks by the sea.

Nearby, the lush spa offers garden-to-skin natural beauty treatments and sound therapy.

Surrounding area

In its own bay, backed by pinewoods. It’s a 10-minute walk to the ferry port, and 2km from Stari Grad, a peaceful fishing village of old stone cottages, with a modest choice of cafes, informal Dalmatian eateries and boutiques.

This is the place to come if you’re looking for peace, quiet and a sense of escape – and stunning natural scenery.
