When I saw there was a new 5 star LHW hotel on Hvar that opened in 2019 I couldn’t resist checking it out and it did not disappoint. The hotel has 45 well appointed rooms and is located right in front of the main harbor. I booked the premium balcony room so I had a perfect view of the harbor and the main drag. The service was amazing and very helpful. I stayed in another of their hotels on the island and had left something in the other hotel. When they found it I was already in Split but they arranged for it to be delivered to me in Split so kudos to them for great customer service! I went in late September and during the Covid pandemic so the island was fairly quite but I intended to return to see how they handle high season. All in all lovely hotel!

My friends and I recently had the opportunity to visit Hvar. We were staying at a separate villa but came to the Palace Elisabeth for lunch and to book spa treatments. All 5 of us booked treatments with Mario, at the Elisabeth Spa for massages and wraps. It was an amazing experience ! He was extremely professional, and made us feel immediately welcome and comfortable during the massages. And after 5 in a row still wasn’t tired ! Would highly recommend. While waiting between massages for our friends we were able to relax and use the pool facilities; everything was beautiful, clean, relaxing and amazing scenic views of Hvar port. We also had lunch upstairs on the patio. It was truly a white tablecloth experiences with beautiful plating and delicious food. The staff were friendly, professional and personable. We hope to come back every summer and next time we’ll likely stay here instead of our villa!

This is a fabulous hotel. Beautiful furnishings, high quality linens, gorgeous public areas and outstanding staff. They were taking good Covid precautions with staff wearing masks and tables at breakfast spaced apart. We had a room overlooking the harbour with a massive and very comfy bed. The breakfast was delicious (my husband is still talking about the oatmeal/porridge.) We left earlier than we wanted because the weather was terrible and there’s not much to do in Hvar in the rain but this was no fault of the hotel. If I was being picky I would say that the bedroom is a little on the small side (mostly taken up with the massive bed) and the bathroom is quite tight. But as I said that’s just me being picky and if I was to go back to Hvar I would stay at this hotel in a heartbeat. I loved it.

My wife & I were a little anxious about our short holiday to Hvar during the COVID-19 crisis but our concerns were immediately dispelled when we arrived at this wonderful hotel. It was clear from the moment that we arrived the hotel & staff had made all the necessary provisions to safeguard our wellbeing without affecting the beauty of this establishment. As this was our first visit to Hvar we had chosen to accept the private transfer offered by the hotel from Split Airport which was well worth it. We were met at Arrivals by our driver who took us to the ferry in a very comfortable car & because our flight had landed early he had already managed to secure us tickets on the earlier Catamaran for our journey to the Island. We were greeted by a member of the hotel staff to take our luggage to the hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were welcomed by the hotel manager with a glass of champagne. A complimentary bottle of local wine & fresh fruit in our luxurious room was a nice touch. Our pre-dinner cocktails were of excellent quality. We ate in the hotel restaurant on our first evening & the sea bass was delicious. The bed in the room was extremely comfortable & we enjoyed a very good night’s sleep. The bathroom & particularly the shower and Guerlain toiletries were of an exceptional quality. There was a good selection on the a la carte breakfast menu & all those that we sampled were excellent. We enjoyed the swimming pool & sun terrace which were very quiet. The next day we experienced the hotel’s complimentary private beach club which is a few minutes walk from the hotel. This is an exceptionally well appointed facility & the crystal clear sea was very inviting. Just a couple of suggestions which could improve this already exceptional 5 star hotel are to provide tissues in the bathroom & perhaps a turn-down service. However, we are already looking forward to our return visit to this fabulous hotel & island.

We spent our holiday in this hotel, the service was fantastic the food was amazing, we got all the amenities in the room, the staff were very helpful and ready to help. From the personalized welcome with Champagne and Italian Hotel Manager ( Simon ) to the help of bell boy ( Marino ), the breakfast team on the terrace and the small blonde maid. I have many reasons to return here and I can recommend to any person wish to visit, thank you for the exceptional service that exceeded our expectations.
