Croatia Wellness Experience
Let it all go… Join us in the magical paradise of Brac Island on the Adriatic Sea for wellness and adventure. Spend the days sailing, snorkeling, wine tasting, paddle boarding, a cooking class, biking, practicing yoga, and meditation. Spend the nights enjoying the locally-sourced gourmet and wine offerings.VILLA VELA LUKA
The Villa is situated on the peaceful bay of Vela Luka on the west side of Supetar. The Island of Brac is the largest island in the region of Central Dalmatia, and the third-largest Adriatic island. It is located across from the city of Split on the Dalmatian coast (12 km), next to the Islands of Hvar and Solta, and separated from the mainland by Brac Channel. Brač has a very comfortable Mediterranean climate with long dry and hot summers.
Supetar is the largest town and harbor on the island. Both Supetar and the Island of Brac have rich historic and cultural heritage, which can be traced through various ancient and medieval landmarks, sites, churches, museums, and Roman relics. Supetar and its long sandy and pebble beaches surrounded by pine forest and Mediterranean plants have been an attractive holiday destination for centuries.CUISINE
You can expect a wide and ever-changing selection of food that is supplied fresh from the villa’s own farm. This allows the chef to source products with integrity, flavor, soul, and incorporate these seasonal offerings into the daily menu. The result is honest, straightforward, and pays homage to Brač’s traditional Mediterranean cuisine. We will also visit a host of restaurants throughout the surrounding area. We have left lunch open for everyone to do their own exploring of the local restaurants.YOGA
Yoga Classes are led by certified yoga teacher (and all-around badass woman) Carrie Rossman. Carrie compliments each day with an enlightening range of experience. Begin the day with a morning flow session to prepare your body for the day’s adventures. The afternoon/night session consists of yin or meditation. Her teachings come from the Hatha Yoga lineage that allows practitioners to be safely guided with proper alignment into a pose and instill knowledge on pose refinement. Carrie is a true heart listener and her knowledge and passion for yoga, adventure and life will leave your soul smiling.PADDLE BOARDING
Explore hidden coves and beaches. The Dalmatian coast is quickly becoming one of the hottest destinations for paddleboarding!SPLIT COOKING CLASS
Enjoy the day strolling Diocletian’s Palace purveying the local fish, fruit, and vegetable markets as we gather the necessary ingredients of the day’s lunch. Learn about the history of Croatian cuisine and how the markets are run. The chef will guide us through the preparation of the dishes while enjoying the wine pairing.SAILING
What better way to explore the Dalmatian Islands than by Sailboat? This is a full-day experience that will find us at the famous beach of Bol. Gourmet food & drinks are all part of the experience.WINE TASTING
Stina Winery opened in 2009 when Jako Vino, a local vintner, rented a building from the Agricultural Cooperative of Bol. The winery is located at the very seafront, right at the Riva, Bol’s boardwalk. It’s housed in town’s historical building, as the inscription at the front of the building still shows: “The first Dalmatian Wine Cooperative”. The wine cooperative was established in 1901, and this building was built in 1903.BIKING
We will take our time at a pace everyone can enjoy. We will cruise the local towns close to the resort. This is a great opportunity for photos, shopping and swimming.SNORKELING

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent. Check them out!
Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
