Sensorí Spa Brand Launches on the Croatian Coast

The magical quality of the light and overwhelming views on the exceptional island of Hvar create a backdrop for the launch of a new brand of spas in Europe -- Sensorí spas. Voted one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world by Condé Nast Traveler, Hvar, on Croatia's Adriatic coast, has been known for the healing qualities of its pure air and clear blue sea since ancient Greek times. In the heart of Europe, Hvar's uniquely sunny microclimate, unspoiled landscape, and rich cultural heritage have made it an exclusive destination for the rich and famous whose yachts line the harbour on most balmy nights.

Sensori spa at the Adriana, hvar marina hotel & spa and Sensory C at Bonj 'les bains' are opening this summer, and Sensori O is scheduled for the Amfora, hvar grand beach resort, conference and spa, in 2008. With the assistance of USA based Spa Concepts International, Suncani hvar hotels is positioning itself to become one of the leading spa developers and operators in the region. Suncani hvar hotels is the only Croatian hotel group privatized and has benefited from the infusion of 50 million euros in capital, to date, by Orco Property Group, a leading European real estate and hospitality developer and investor.

The newly reconstructed four-star deluxe Adriana, hvar marina hotel & spa offers 50 deluxe guest rooms, and 9 suites, a rooftop seawater swimming pool, sky bar, lounge and multi-level garden terraces with stunning views over the sea and marina. The 1400 square meter Sensorí spa integrates design elements inspired by the sensuous island environment and has both indoor and outdoor amenities on three levels, including outdoor terraces for massage, yoga, and relaxation — all allowing for an individualized approach to each guest. The menu of services offers a distinct sense of place, integrating the healing properties of the local plants and environment with the traditional remedies of massage, movement, hydrotherapy and esthetic care to invigorate and restore the senses. Below is a sampling of some of the treatments and amenities available at Sensorí spa, Hvar Croatia.
