Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Encircled by vineyards and olive groves, Hotel Boskinac is found on the island of Pag, moments from Novalja beach resort.

Rooms at Hotel Restaurant Boskinac

The rooms have en suite bathrooms, wooden floors and are spacious; upgrade to a suite for the best views and a more homely space. We say go hell for leather and get the suite with the private terrace, where you can have dinner brought to you.

Food and drink

Pull up a chair on the terrace and start the day with a breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, freshly baked pastries and pršut. Come back to the same spot at dinner time and feast on creative dishes made with locally sourced produce. Try the tasting menu, opting for either three, five or seven courses, with dishes like ascarpaccio od brancin and Jakovska kapica. Complement your meal with a Boškinac wine – the Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is award-winning – and sample a selection with a wine-tasting session in the cellar, served with a Croatian mezze.


The outdoor pool provides a refreshing respite from the heat, while the gardens are a tranquil spot to take a stroll. Indulge in a spa treatment to feel totally relaxed.

Activities at Hotel Restaurant Boskinac

The hotel have bikes for you to use, so head out and explore the coves and mountains of this untamed island. Cycle through olive groves and stop to check out the Renaissance town of Pag, the Novalja Museum and the Roman Aqueduct. Relax on the beaches in Novalja and have a go at scuba diving, or take a boat trip to Kornati National Park. If you fancy a day trip, the city of Zadar is well worth exploring, with its cobbled streets and Romanesque churches.
