The staff are very friendly and welcoming.The botanical garden, in which the complex is built, was founded by the Meneghello family back in 1906. Creating a back-to-nature atmosphere, it is densely planted with pines, palms, orange trees, cacti, and aromatic herbs such as rosemary, sage, lavender and mint, steps lead down to a pebble beach, with sun beds and parasols....

The Meneghello estate is more like staying with a family than staying at a hotel. The multigenerational staff is super friendly and helpful at arranging transport and daytime activities, ie circumnavigating the island in a small boat. The seafood is excellent, just point out your fresh fish and follow your waitress's advice. You can't go wrong. Cottages are big and... More

We have just returned from a one week stay in the White Villa - family of five, with 23 year-old son and two daughters aged 13 and 11. I will stick some practical tips (and prices for fellow moth-friendly wallet-clutching dads) below but overall impressions first. The island is striking - it took a couple of days for this to...

Meneghello Estate, on the small island of Palmizana, just before the coast of Split and Hvar, is not. far from Western Europe, but feels like another world, far away in the ocean. it offers 5 idyllic houses on an estate-like property within a huge botanic garden. Besides, next to a charming and very hospitable local restaurant, the island offers some... More

This is not the quiet island retreat one would expect from the publicity put out by the hotel. During the high season, the small bay where the cottages are located is full of large yachts (more than 60; we counted) and at least as many smaller boats, so there is constant noise from motors and plenty of oil in the...

It is not really an hotel but a place where you feel part of the family as soon as you arrive. The little colourfull houses are all decorated with paintings and sculptures made by Croatian artists. The surrounding gardens are filled with all kind of cactuses and plants and the scent of lavendel and rosemary. We stayed at the Turquoise... More

We have just returned from a week at Palmizana for our annual holiday with our good friends - they travelled from Boston and we came from Dubai - it was worth the journey. This is an excellent small hotel in a beautiful setting, quite unique, an experience we will not forget. The staff are the best we have come across... More

Best arrival ever being picked up by boat at Hvar and then zooming over to Sv Klemente and being driven up to the house in a landrover that had seen a bit of action. A lovely welcome by great staff. Comfortable accommodation in Villa Georgia. It was a five minute saunter to the lovely bay. Blissfully peaceful setting. We ate... More

I had my last night before wedding in hotel Palmizana, with my mother, sister and couple of friends. The staff was extremely helpful, especially Mrs. Romina. Special thanks to Tarin Meneghello for his patience and hospitality arranging details for our exceptional visit. The place is beautiful, the atmosphere outstanding and I am already dreaming to come back with my husband... More

My husband and I booked five nights here as an enforced rest during a very busy holiday. For that, it was perfect. We got an upgrade on arrival - despite booking the cheapest room - and the staff were really lovely and helpful throughout our stay. The island is small but we found a few deserted (rocky, as in most... More
