Hotel Supetar, located between the historic small town of Cavtat, Croatia, and the Adriatic Sea, reopens after a total renovation. The hotel reemerges as a boutique retreat after Croatian designers STUDIO LACROMA and Katarina Alamat Kusijanovic worked together to redesign and transform the property into something fresh.
Housed in an original 1920s, three-story private villa, Hotel Supetar includes 16 spacious and individually designed rooms, each with Mediterranean influences. Stylish furniture, sophisticated fabrics celebrating the history of the area and the modernity of the hotel and pops of wallpaper add flair to each room. The rooms feature garden or sea views and lie just steps from the waterfront promenade. Bathrooms boast marble features and gold accents.
The on-site restaurant sees authentic delicacies and classic dishes come together. The menu focuses on products of the sea, seasonal specialties and local fresh ingredients, including oranges from the hotel’s garden. Menu highlights include swordfish carpaccio marinated in an emulsion of lime and orange; vegetable cream soup with poached shrimp tail, dark bread croutons and olive oil; and “Maturo” beef filet aged 24 days, accompanied by blinis of potatoes from Konavle, glazed carrot and asparagus, demi-glace sauce and slices of truffle. Desserts include local cream caramel and flan.
Guests enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner indoors while enjoying views of the poolside oasis through the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows or on the romantic alfresco terrace. Hotel Supetar also invites wine lovers to visit the new Wine Bar. Offering a selection of the finest local and international wines, the bar pairs comfortable loungers and contemporary seating alongside a modern, emerald-tiled bar. The wine list includes the finest selection of Croatian wines, highlighting Dubrovacka Malvasija, the local white wine grape from the nearby Konavle region. The Wine Bar also offers Croatian wine tastings.
In addition to renovated rooms, a transformed restaurant and new Wine Bar, Hotel Supetar also welcomes guests to its garden and new light-flooded infinity edge pool. The pool lies amidst wicker chair sets and citrus trees, making guests feel like gods and goddesses underneath the Croatian sun.
