Vintage Luxury Boating For Croatian Travellers

Travellers bound for the new five-star Maslina Resort on the Croatian island of Hvar, can relax minutes after disembarking from their plane, thanks to a luxury boat ride directly to their Relais & Chateaux property!

The new, customised Colnago 45 TS will transport guests directly from Split Airport across the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic Sea to the luxurious boutique property in just 60 minutes.

Built by Hvar natives, the Colnago family - who have a long-standing tradition in designing and building luxury boats for use between the Croatian islands and the mainland - Maslina Resort commissioned the bespoke vessel.

The result is a modern take on vintage luxury: the 11.95 metres Colnago 45 TS, capable of holding two crew and 12 guests.

The addition of the boat to the hotel experience means guests will no longer have to drive to the port of Split and wait for the public ferry or catamaran, which can take up to two hours to reach Hvar. And staff will take care of the check-in process on-board!

“We want our guests to have a seamless and stress-free transfer so that they arrive at the hotel relaxed. The transfer will also offer guests the opportunity to form deeper connections to the destination and environment as they take in the stunning vistas, blue skies and azure waters of the Adriatic Sea,” said Zoran Pejovic, Development Director of Maslina Resort.

Surrounded by olive groves and terraced vineyards, Maslina Resort has 50 rooms and five villas and stretches across two hectares of lush pine forest overlooking the crystalline Adriatic Sea. Wellbeing, family, culture and authenticity are at its heart.

Flying There
Many airlines including British Airways, Easy Jet, Jet 2 and Whizz Air fly from many regional and London airports direct to Split. The flight time is approximately two hours and 30 minutes. From Split Airport, the transfer by speed boat takes 30-35 minutes. Dubrovnik and Brač airports are also nearby. Private car and speedboat transfers can be arranged from any of these locations.

Prices start from €240.00 per night for a Garden Suite, based on two adults sharing, excluding breakfast.
