August 11, 2019 – The luxury tourism sector in Croatia is having a great season, with agencies such as Hvar Tours using innovative ways to show the very best of the country.
It took me quite some time when writing about tourism on the island of Hvar to realise that most of the best stories never reach the public domain. Indeed, the island has a reputation for being very egalitarian and a place where celebrities can relax and be left alone. And unless you are a British prince falling drunkenly into a nightclub swimming pool, celebrity visits generally go unreported, certainly until the famous guests have left.
I learned part of the extent of this when I met Dagmar Meneghello on Palmizana for the first time during which we had a wonderful chat about 50 years of Palmizana and all the famous people who had visited. She had a strict rule of no paparazzi in the restaurant and only very rarely – and with full consent – did news of their visit come out, and always after their departure.
There has been an increase in innovation, originality and attention to detail from some Croatian agencies in recent years, among them Hvar Tours on the island of the same name. Locally run and with an intimate knowledge of what is possible on Hvar, Hvar Tours has arguably the most diverse range of tours on Hvar, from speedboat wine tastings in caves and romantic sunset dinners in award-winning olive groves to the only Blue Cave Tour which also takes in the majesty of Secret Inland Vis on the same day.
And they know exactly where the very best spots on the island are for their VVIP guests to enjoy the best views on the island in total privacy and seclusion, surrounded by Hvar’s pristine nature.
And a cocktail-shaking waiter with a full range of chilled refreshments for the enjoyment of the VVIP guests.
Welcome to the first pop up bar on the top of the island of Hvar. I take mine shaken but not stirred.
