Hvar town will be enhanced thanks to another five-star hotel this summer, reports Dalmatinski Portal.
This blue-green oasis is located on the promenade by the sea, on a green area of approximately 5000 m2. Croatia-Hvar d.o.o. has launched an investment worth 100 million kuna, which includes the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the existing facility and environment of Hotel Croatia, which has so far worked in the 3-star category. The investment comprises raising the categorization of the hotel to five stars, so the company’s management has decided to re-brand the hotel, which includes changing the name. The new hotel will be named MOEESY BLUE & GREEN OASIS because the name merges a mosaic of blue and green oases that, like poetry, merge into peace and beauty that will provide tourists accommodation within its beautiful surroundings.
This is a financially valuable and very demanding construction investment, given that it is a complete reconstruction and rehabilitation within the existing hotel building. A beautiful stone staircase will remain inside the hotel, and everything else is in the process of full reconstruction.
The hotel will have 41 accommodation units, including 37 rooms, four suites, and an exclusive presidential suite. Modern and airy design is a hotel feature and will surely delight tourists at the hotel. The restaurant will showcase direct contact of the chef with hotel guests through show-cooking, with a cascading restaurant, bar, and booths. The pleasant ambiance and accessibility to each guest are the qualities that have adorned the hotel’s current management and staff, which will be maintained and continuously raised to an even higher level. As a result, hotel guests will be provided with the highest level of luxury during their stay.
The big news is that the hotel will have an outdoor pool located west of the hotel which will be organized in cascades to monitor the configuration of the terrain. In addition, this facility will have an indoor pool and spa center that will offer massages, a sauna, and a large gym. This content ensures that the hotel can operate outside the summer period, i.e., deep in the pre-season and post-season, which is the goal of hotel management and part of the national strategy of Croatian tourism. The works on the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the hotel include the complete arrangement of horticulture around the building itself so that a green oasis is maintained around the hotel and preserves the recognizability that the building has had so far. The horticulture project includes replacing old trees with young ones representing Mediterranean cultures. Furthermore, all existing palm trees will be retained, so there will be an alley of palm trees in the southern part of the hotel.
This investment can be called a ‘family hotel and project’ because it has the unique feature that three generations of one family participate in the management and ownership of the hotel. Stanislav Visković is the director of the company and a representative of the third generation that runs the hotel and works to improve the quality of work and hotel offerings.
“This investment will enrich the offer of Hvar town and the entire Croatian tourism and follow the trends of investing in high category facilities for which there are special interests of tourists. In the Croatian tourist market, the task is to achieve that,” says Visković.
While the pandemic created significant problems in the tourism market, it also pointed to the need to invest in very high-capacity facilities because such facilities had excellent occupancy during the pandemic. Visković further emphasizes the critical role of partners in implementing this project.
“This project, with the funds of the investor company and the support of HAMAG-BICRO, is monitored by Hrvatska poštanska banka, which has become a financial and operational partner of the project because they are involved in the complete course of project preparation and implementation. Furthermore, the management of Hrvatska poštanska banka, especially the Split office, monitors and directly supports the project itself. Therefore, the opening of the hotel will be a source of pride for all of us who have truly participated in the project in partnership,” he says.
The construction should be completed by May 1, 2022, after which the hotel will be equipped with furniture, obtain a use permit, and finalize categorization. The hotel should receive its first guests at the end of June 2022. The expected markets are the USA, Great Britain, France, Australia, Germany, and other markets with higher spending power. An overnight stay in a hotel in the peak season will be from 600 to 800 euros in double rooms and from 1160 to 1800 euros in apartments, depending on the category of the room or suite.
