Riva, hvar yacht harbour hotel, Hvar
A spiffy makeover transformed this old-school waterside lodging of Grand Tour vintage into contemporary boutique hotel with a vague celebrity theme. Orson Welles and Sean Connery were among the guests back in the day – now it’s Tom Cruise and Kevin Spacey. Without the space to offer a pool or gym, the hotel goes big on its harbourfront location and glam décor. Images of Anita Ekberg or Brigitte Bardot gaze from guestroom walls, while the terrace bar is called the BB Club.
