Relais & Chateaux will welcome the brand-new, five-star Maslina Resort to its Croatian stable in August 2020.
Set in Maslinica Bay, Hvar, surrounded by olive groves and terraced vineyards, Maslina Resort has 50 rooms and three villas and stretches across two hectares of lush pine forest overlooking the crystalline Adriatic Sea with wellbeing, family, culture and authenticity at its heart.
The property has integrated sustainable practices into its core principles. Mindful luxury and wellness underpin the central values of Maslina Resort’s ethos and its dedication to being in harmony with nature and the surrounding natural environment. The resort purposefully blends in with the nearby olive groves, and the furnishings in the rooms have been made from local and regional materials.
The holistic approach focuses on a natural, mindful and healthy way of life which is felt everywhere in the hotel, including the kitchen. The excellent produce grown in Maslina Resort’s organic garden and locally is prominent on all the menus and is prepared by former two-Michelin star chef, Patricia Yeo. Her passion for fresh, local and authentic products ensures each dish is full of flavour, healthy and fresh tasting.
The modern wellness area sets its focus on natural oils, fragrances and herbs. The distinctive garden to skin concept is key to Maslina Resort and in line with the property’s culture. The herbs and oils in the spa therapy products are specially developed and cultivated directly from the hotel’s organic beach garden.
Maslina Resort aims to promote a positive change in the world, by collaborating and offering a wide array of wellness, adventure and culinary experiences that are ecologically friendly, while providing an inspiring atmosphere, promoting mindfulness and sustainable philosophy.
Last month the luxury resort was selected as a member of the eco and sustainable tourism company, Green Pearls, which selects its members based on their sustainable initiatives, social commitment and preservation, and protection of the environment.
Rates at Maslina Resort start at US$360 (approximately AU$540).
