Four Seasons Hvar

In big news out of Croatia, Four Seasons has announced a new luxury resort to open on the island of Hvar in 2019. Croatia, and particularly the idyllic Dalmatian coast, continues to soar in popularity as a travel destination, and islands such as Hvar—nicknamed the “St. Tropez of the Adriatic”—are adored by celebrities and the international jetset. (Beyoncé and Jay-Z are rumored to have named their daughter “Blue Ivy” after a plant native to the island.) The postcard-perfect island is said to get the most sunshine of anywhere in Croatia, and there are quiet corners of pristine lavender fields and beaches to complement the red-hot nightlife in Hvar Town.

Arqaam Capital and Four Seasons have partnered on the project, which will be the first resort in Croatia for the upscale hotel brand. Situated on its own private bay, the development will include a 120-room Four Seasons hotel along with 60 Four Seasons Private Residences. Facilities will include myriad swimming pools, a full-service spa, a fitness center, restaurants, retail space, and a meeting/conference venue.
