Sitting on the shores of a sleepy north-western corner of Brač, adults-only Hotel Lemongarden is set in a cluster of stone buildings dating back over 300 years. Once the homes of local noble families, today they house 35 light-drenched rooms and suites decked out with bespoke furniture and Murano chandeliers. Out in the bougainvillea-filled gardens, there’s a spectacular 30-metre swimming pool, while the property owns a private pebbly beach set in a natural bay, a short cycle away. Here you can settle into a comfortable lounger under the shade of the pines, and sip on homemade lemonade from the Strand Bar. The hotel’s spa and wellness pavilion is another haven of tranquility, offering an array of treatments, a Finnish sauna, steam bath and state-of-the-art relaxation pod.
Most of the ingredients served in the hotel restaurant are sourced from local fishermen or grown in the onsite organic gardens, and in the evening, candlelit tables are laid out along the waterfront. Nearby Sutivan is compact enough to explore on foot, but for trips further afield the hotel has a private yacht and a fleet of convertible Mini Coopers available for hire.
