Maslina Resort, a newly opened Relais & Chateaux mindful luxury resort on the island of Hvar, Croatia, celebrates being included on Travel + Leisure Magazine’s acclaimed ‘It List’. The prestigious ‘It List’ recognises the ultimate places to stay globally.

Located in the stunning Maslinica Bay, near the ancient town of Stari Grad. Surrounded by olive groves and lush pine forests, Maslina Resort’s 50 rooms and three stunning new villas have been meticulously designed to blend seamlessly into the natural landscape. Maslina Resort’s facilities and amenities embrace the mindful luxury ethos that is prevalent throughout. Every detail has been devised to enhance the well-being of guests, evident in the light-filled rooms and large infinity pools. New for 2021, the brand-new Pharomatiq Spa specialises in restorative experiences, showcasing a garden-to-skin inspired menu that uses only home-grown herbs and locally sourced essential oils. This ‘zero kilometre’ approach continues in the chic restaurant, which embraces the wellness philosophy, focusing on delicious healthy Mediterranean food.
