More recognition for Suncani Hvar Hotels at Days of Tourism 2018, as Hotel Adriana wins the Best Wellness Hotel in Croatia award on October 25, 2018.
It has been quite a year for the island of Hvar. Just six years after celebrating the 400th anniversary of the oldest public theatre in Europe, built way back in 1612, Hvar is this year celebrating another European first in 2018 – 150 years of organised tourism in Europe, following the founding of the Hvar Health Society, on May 15, 1868.
So it was somewhat fitting that Hotel Adriana, just a few metres down the road from the original accommodation for Europe’s first organised health tourism, was the 2018 winner of the category of Best Wellness Hotel in Croatia at last week’s Days of Croatian Tourism awards. Hvar has so much to offer with its tourism – beaches, nightlife, culture, heritage, food and wine – but last week Hvar tourism turned full circle after 150 years with its focus on health tourism.
“We are honored to receive 1st prize for the best wellness hotel in this particular category. This award additionally confirms our continuous efforts to conform to world trends in the spa industry”, emphasized Dubravka Novak, general manager of Adriana, hvar spa hotel. “We are honored to receive 1st prize for the best wellness hotel in this particular category.

Moreover, it received a new indoor pool with possibility of aerobic classes.
And while Adriana has been winning numerous national and international wellness awards in recent years, it is not the only wellness option in the Suncani Hvar offer.
Bonj les Bains, the 1930’s colonnade in front of another Suncani Hvar hotel, Amfora, is another historic setting in this town which oozes heritage at every turn. And what a setting! The Suncani Hvar wellness experience at Bons les Bains comes with an unbeatable waterfront view, complete with private cabins and massage services. Relaxation with a view!
The wellness facilities on offer at Suncani Hvar are part of an increasingly enticing selection of facilities and activities on Croatia’s premier island, which are helping Hvar position itself as a more diverse destination than the stereotype of summer sun and beaches. Hvar’s Mediterranean diet was inscribed as UNESCO intangible heritage back in 2013, the fifth UNESCO attraction on Hvar, making Hvar the island with the most UNESCO heritage in the world. Hvar’s wines are now exported all over the world, and a series of new adrenaline and sporting events is positioning Hvar as an increasingly important adventure tourism destination.
And when you have the best wellness hotel in Croatia, you know where to come to relax!
