Address: Postira bb, Island of Brac, 21000, Croatia

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4

Small recently-opened hotel with a pool overlooking the sea on the island of Brac.

With a population of just 1,500, Postira is a friendly fishing village, made up of old stone cottages with terracotta tile roofs, built around a bay on Brac’s north coast. Hotel Lipa, opened in June 2009, makes a fine base here, with just 28 rooms and suites, an outdoor pool and a small wellness centre.

Location

Overlooking the bay in Postira, the hotel is 10km east of the ferry port of Supetar and a one-hour bus ride from Bol.

Bedrooms

I like the slightly daring colour schemes here – mauve carpets, indigo curtains, and splashes of heather pink added by the cushions. All the rooms (double and triple) have a sea-view balcony with a table and two chairs so you can sit out, and the eight suites also have a living room with a fold-out bed, making them ideal for families with kids.

Public areas

The hotel restaurant has a lovely stone terrace for open-air dining with views over Postira bay.

Eating and drinking

The Lipa’s generous buffet breakfast makes a fine way to start the day. Buffet dinner (many guests are on half-board) is served in the dining room, while a la carte dinner, with a good choice of tasty Dalmatian meat and seafood specialities, is served outside on the terrace.

Leisure facilities

There’s a narrow pebble beach across the road immediately in front of the hotel, ideal for a morning swim. Hotel Lipa also has an outdoor pool and a small wellness centre offering sauna, Jacuzzi and massage, and also arranges excursions to nearby Lovrečina, a lovely sandy bay with shallow water, ideal for kids.

Service

Professional, friendly and attentive staff, both at reception and in the restaurant.

Who stays there

Mainly European couples and families in search of a peaceful seaside holiday.
