After the completion of an ambitious construction and decoration project, Zori Timeless Hotel is ready to welcome its guest in April 2023. This marks the realization of a long-standing dream of the Tomlinović Family, who took over the management of the Zori family restaurant in 2006. Located in the very heart of the Adriatic, on the fairytale island of Sveti Klement (Palmižana) near Hvar, Zori Timeless Hotel represents a superb combination of the established, exclusive Zori Restaurant and four new designer luxury Residences, and is ready to meet the needs of the most demanding guests.
Long and rich hospitality tradition fused with the natural beauty of the island and the highest industry standards
Over the years, Zori Restaurant became a central place for all lovers of exquisite food and innovative approach to gastronomy. Always interesting and different, combining local and exotic ingredients, Zori has established itself on the gastronomic map of Croatia and beyond, developing a large base of satisfied guests who often return. However, that was just the beginning of the story that Iva and Renato Tomlinović, the owners of Zori Timeless Hotel, have been creating together for many years.
"The restaurant itself, with its quality, dictated the need to expand and to offer accommodation at the same level, one that will meet the needs of the most demanding guest, who appreciates everything that Palmižana has to offer - the untouched beauty of nature, a pleasant micro-climate and rich tradition," says Iva Tomlinović. Zori’s long-time and loyal guests have responded encouragingly to their idea, believing that this is exactly what Hvar and the entire destination need.
A couple of years ago, Tomlinović family decided to start the realization of this project with the help of the design studio Visković&Visković from Split, represented by two young, creative and passionate architects and designers. Vjekoslav and Zrinka delighted them with their project presentation which was immediately accepted, and at the same time the rebranding process which gave birth to the Zori Timeless concept begun.
The need for a sustainable way of doing business has proven to be imperative in the last few years. The capacity of the restaurant has been reduced, guests are provided with greater comfort and privacy, and with the construction of four luxury designed residences, the guests can prolong their stay in Zori, enjoy high-quality gastronomy, superior accommodation and service, and the beautiful nature of Hvar and Dalmatia.
Dazzling design pays tribute to tradition, nature and location while moving towards the future
Zori Timeless is a unique boutique hotel, where guests have everything they need for a superb hedonistic vacation experience. In addition to the VIP zone within the Zori Restaurant, where the young, versatile and highly creative chef Siniša Jevresimov cooks for them a la carte, they also have access to a personalized concierge service, which ensures that all guests have an unforgettable experience.
The four design Residences named Infinity, Cloud, Eternity and Horizon are all different and special, and each tells its own unique story. Only natural materials such as stone and wood were used for their construction and decoration, which fit naturally into the environment and do not disturb its natural beauty. The goal was to create a space in which indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly merge into one, to produce an atmosphere of complete contact with the sea and lush, carefully selected vegetation in the gardens of the Residences, but at the same time to achieve the sense of safety and privacy that guests expect.
"The task of our design studio was to imagine and then build a place for rest, enjoyment and living. A place where you become someone else for a few days," state the designers Zrinka and Vjekoslav Visković and add: "This is definitely Palmižana at its core, without any architecture, an extraordinary place, nature in its fullness, a place where dense greenery meets the sea. Our guiding thought when designing the project was - spaces without time frame: timeless, without decoration. No contrast, only harmony”. Having special emotion towards Hvar because of their family origin, these fantastic designers found it both a privilege and a great responsibility when they were asked to help create a timeless, unique space, with an added value.
The ultimate setting for elevated stays
Zori Timeless Residences are equipped with high-quality, designer furniture and luxurious details, which exude minimalism and luxury, they are airy and create an atmosphere of ease. Their meticulously arranged interior naturally merges with beautiful, spacious terraces enriched with lush vegetation, hammocks, swimming pools and/or jacuzzis, and all have a direct view of Vinogradišće bay, one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.
Infinity Residence owes its name to the infinity pool at the very edge of its spacious terrace. It is also the largest in terms of capacity and can host four adults with the option of additional beds for children. The two bedrooms are joined by an imposing central living room area, and with many special details, guests will surely be delighted by the huge projection screen that turns this room into a private cinema. Its large, comfortable terrace with hidden corners is an ideal place for socializing, but also for seclusion and undisturbed enjoyment. Cloud Residence is special because of its two swimming pools, one of them being a rooftop jacuzzi pool, so guests can enjoy an incredible view of the Bay and surrounding islands. Like the other two residences, it can host two adults and two children. Eternity Residence is a petite, charming oasis surrounded by plants, herbs and flowers, whose intoxicating scents guests can enjoy while relaxing in the hammock or in the jacuzzi. Horizon Residence is a delight with its charismatic terrace with two pools and a magnificent view of the Bay.
Zori Timeless Hotel, a jewel in the centre of Dalmatia
"Hvar and Pakleni Islands are a special and globally recognized destination that deserves products of the highest quality, and their absolutely stunning natural beauty and atmosphere require careful management and care in order to preserve this nature and cultural heritage. We believe that Zori Timeless Hotel managed to achieve all of the above, and we are sure that our guests will enjoy every day spent here. We want Zori Timeless Hotel to be a pleasant and relaxing place for them to explore and discover all the charms and beauties of central Dalmatia and beyond," conclude the owners, Iva and Renato Tomlinović.
