Namely, the architect founded their concept on the reminiscence of rocks and Brac stone, so the hotel, with the shape of the building and the broken geometry as a form of façade, seems like a small quarry in the bay.

In the interior design, the architects of the Grand Hotel View opted for an inversion in impression and materials. While the exterior façade looks sharp, the interior design exudes tenderness and slow living philosophy. The entrance lobby conquers at first sight with warmth, and this atmosphere creates the intertwining of Mediterranean motifs, materials and shapes. The wooden ceiling embraces like the hull of a galley, terrazzo under reflects sunlight imitating the shredding of the sea, while the reception presents a golden sunlight that lingers in the heart of the hotel all day.

Depending on the time of arrival, boarding a ferry to the island of Brac can take up to an hour. From there you will have to ask for a shuttle bus to the hotel which takes 45 minutes.
