The newly renovated Palace Elisabeth Hotel on Hvar has opened

first_imgThe history of the Palace Hotel Elisabeth dates back to the 13th century. In 1898, the hotel was renovated and named Spa Hotel Empress Elisabeth, after the Austrian Empress Sisi who was a generous patron of its construction. The history of this oldest hotel in Hvar and Empress Sisi were the inspiration, motive and inspiration of the grand opening of the hotel. Many guests were able to take pictures together with the girls in original Sisi dresses that reminded us of the rich heritage of this timeless hotel. “The opening of the Palace Elisabeth Hotel further raises the existing offer to a higher level and at the same time contributes to the attractiveness of a destination that provides a high quality holiday in all segments”, said the President of the Management Board Gordana Tomičić. ONE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY, ONE BRAND – ISLAND OF HVAR The long-orphaned and newly renovated Palace Elisabeth Hotel opened on the island of Hvar on Saturday. Even before its opening, this most luxurious hotel on the island became a member of the elite hotel association of luxury hotels The Leading Hotels of the World. This is certainly due to its location in the heart of the town of Hvar and the impressive Venetian and Austrian architecture that merges with the unique architectural ensemble of the old town Loggia and the clock tower. Thanks to the 100 million kuna investment of the Sunčani Hvar tourist group, Palace Elisabeth became the first 5-star hotel on the island and a member of the elite hotel association of luxury hotels “The Leading Hotels of the World”. This is an investment of 300 thousand euros per room, which is one of the largest investments in the Croatian hotel industry. center_img “Of all the facilities we have, the Palace Elisabeth Hotel is special.

We plan to invest in other facilities in Sunny Hvar. “, said Martin Nemeček, CEO of CPI Group. Related news: Photo: Sunny Hvar Hotels HVAR TOURIST BOARDS ASSOCIATE!
