for Central and Eastern

About us

Godiva Consulting is performing as an independent hospitality development consultancy since 2006, based on the profound practical experience, extensive market know how and in-depth regional expertise of its founders.

Based in Croatia, our operating area is CEE - Central and Eastern Europe with special emphasis on the Adriatic, Balkan and Eastern Mediterranean region.

While deeply respecting the merits of the major international consulting brands, our way is to step away from industrialised output and to provide fully individual services with a hands-on performance, thus establishing and cultivating enduring face-to-face relationships with our clients.

Our main focus is on development projects in the hotel, tourism and leisure sectors. In addition to evaluation reports, feasibility studies and master plans, which we gladly deliver, Godiva Consulting stays with the client also through the complete realisation phase and beyond, providing project management, as well as asset management services.
