As Croatia has become more and more of a hotspot for clubbers, so its clubs have continued to evolve and accommodate them. One that has been standing out for years now is Noa, which is built from a series of interconnected platforms floating on the Adriatic in a natural, wood-heavy style. It is a luxury space with sun beds, VIP service, many pools and secluded private lounges as well as a main floor, an after-beach area and a chillout zone all supplied with sound by a D&B Audiotechnik system.
“There's certainly a special feeling in being a guest at our open-air club,” says the club's Tom. “At Noa you can literally meet the new dawn while partying away, all surrounded by a clear-blue sea.”
As for the soundtrack, maximal EDM stars like Steve Aoki and Skrillex have headlined this year, but Noa also places lots of focus on residents Aldo Morro, Robert MKC and Miss DJ Kay Dee. “With them we created a sense of familiarity with our guests that makes the ‘Noa experience’ a fulfilling one. Shortly put, they're very important to us since our visitors and residents are all one big family.”
Built from several interconnecting platforms bobbing in the Adriatic Sea, Noa Beach Club is a luxe Croatian beach club like no other. The platforms each host a range of different activities — including cocktail bars, day beds, a VIP area, several pools and even a few “private islands” and secluded lounges. During the daytime, visitors stick to the club's outer ring: there's a specially designed area for sunbathing, sea-jumping, and chilling by the water. It's at night fall that Noa really goes into overdrive — the club's main dancefloor is packed to bursting point almost every night throughout the summer.
Music-wise, Noa's booking policy is heavily EDM, with the club aiming to please a wide cross-section of European visitors. Last year saw Noa welcome huge EDM acts including Nervo, Dyro, Bassjackers and Klingand, with Steve Aoki, Bassjackers and Tujamo already confirmed for this year's 2016 season. Best bit of all? After you've finished thrashing about to the biggest tracks on Beatport all night long, you can jump straight off the side for a dip. Best be packing those bathers!
It’s no secret that getting sweaty is an occupational hazard of any rave. But at Noa Beach Club you don’t need to worry about being sticky, a pool of cool watery respite is always close by; all you need to do is jump off the side!
Built from several interconnecting platforms bobbing in the sea, combining dancefloors, pools, bars and relaxing lounges, Noa is luxurious to the max with the opportunity to rent your own “private island” if you’d prefer not to mingle. When night falls, the partying at Noa goes into fifth gear, with holiday-makers migrating from the sun-soaked platforms to Noa club’s enormous floating arena.
The music at Noa is exactly what you’d expect, with promoters trying to please a large cross section of holiday punters. There’s been everything from EDM’s biggest superstars (Nervo, R3hab, 2Elements, Kid Chris) to Cocoon’s Sven Väth on Noa’s bill, plus a bungy jumping tower for those feeling extra adventurous!
