Orvas d.o.o. is a Croatian company, owned by Branko Roglić and family, founded in 1992.
It is a member of the Orbico Group, which comprises the Orbico Company and Orvas Plus, whose main activity is the distribution of the products of global producers such as Procter and Gamble, Philip Morris, Johnson Wax, Master Food, Fructal and Kraft Jacobs Suchard.
The Orbico Group has undergone intensive development as its business has grown, not only on the Croatian market, but in the region (Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia). It employs 700 people in Croatia alone, with revenues of 270 million euros in 2007.
In 1998, Orvas established a tourist agency, whose activities are based on providing quality accommodation on our own vessels (yachts and motor boats), and since 2003, we have extended our range to include our own hotels, villas, apartments and rural tourism.
Today, Orvas has 55 permanent and 20 seasonal employees in three sectors: chartering, the hotel trade and agriculture. Their common goal is to advance the placement of our own facilities, services and products on the home and foreign markets.
We enjoy business co-operation with 2500 agencies throughout the world.
We are a member of the HUH (Croatian Association of Hoteliers) and the UHPA (Association of Croatian Travel Agencies).
In 2003, in an attempt to link its business activities more closely with Dalmatia, and in the desire to make a contribution to discovering Dalmatia's unique Mediterranean beauty, Orvas d.o.o. opened a new division, Orvas Hotels. Orvas Hotels began operations by opening Hotel Pharia on Hvar Island and Brac Villa Bonaca with pools in Sumartin on Brac. Within a short time, we became specialists in villas and small hotels.
Today, Orvas Hotels has a whole spectrum of different property types in its range, from luxury villas with pools, to holiday vacation villas, small hotels and apartments, in carefully selected locations on the Hvar Island and Brac Island, and on Split Riviera and Makarska Riviera. Let us show you how we do things and introduce you to the natural beauties of the Mediterranean as it used to be. Relax and enjoy Croatia the Orvas way.
The Orvas Hotels principle
In an age when people are drifting further and further apart, our principle is to nurture the personal approach towards guests and respect their individuality, while providing quality and safety, the results of good organisation. Our goal is to respect the identity and promote the tradition of each destination we cover, while discreetly integrating the achievements of modern technology.
Why choose Orvas Hotels?
We are aware of the fact that travel plans and destinations are selected these days by clicking on a mouse in the comfort of one's own home. Orvas Hotels seeks to make your choice easier and save you time and effort, while providing safety and quality.
We aim to give all our guests an authentic experience of their chosen destination. The useful information we provide will make it simpler to plan your trip independently, help you be better informed about your chosen destination and give you plenty of suggestions for how to spend your time there.
The proof of our success is in the number of guests who return year after year, simply because they know they will always be valued.
Orvas Hotels range
Orvas Hotels is special because most of the buildings in our range are our own property, so we know at first hand every detail of how they were built, and we know just how much work and effort went into making them what they are – adapted to the requirements and needs of our guests. If you have difficulty choosing a destination or accommodation, our staff are available to advise you which villa, hotel or apartment will suit you best.
We don't have typical buildings. All the accommodation in the Orvas Hotels range must have that special something which best reflects the place it is in. We choose our accommodation with great care, because we want it to stand out in a crowd of alternatives. There are no large buildings, rather we offer comfort and warmth, whether in the modern Hvar vacation villas with pools, the pretty stone Brac villas by the sea on Brac Island, the intimate small hotel in Baška Voda, or Brac Apartments Pučišća, with their fabulous sea views.
