Croatia may have become the location of choice for UK promoters touting holidays with party benefits, but its home-grown clubs can struggle to attract punters. Papaya, however, is slowly changing that.

Not only is this epic triple-stage rave resort beside the beach acquired annually by The Warehouse Project for its soiree Hideout Festival, every summer it aims for the jugular of club success by helicoptering in only the giants of modern dance music. Armin, Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Swedish House Mafia, Marcus Schulz and Tiësto are a handful making up an all-star cast responsible for encouraging over 300,000 revellers from all over the world to shake it down at a 10-year-old venue that only puts on 10 big events a year.
