Luxury Hotels Croatia
Croatia has never been short of luxury hotels, and has been compared with the likes of Nice and Marseilles on numerous occasions, enjoying visits from some of Europe’s most privileged families during the 1920s and 1930s. Although the country’s appeal has suffered over the last fifty years or so due to conflict and upheaval, its reputation as a playground for the social elite is back, and with it comes the development of a number of excellent hotels and retreats.
Here is just a handful of our favourites…
Falkensteiner Club Funimation Borik, Zadar Croatia (4 stars)
This four star hotel is an excellent retreat for all ages. It offers guests all the modern luxuries that their hearts could desire, from relaxing spa facilities to a full sports and entertainment programme. It also provides an excellent activities programme for children, hence its ‘funimation’ title!
The hotel is located in the north of the Dalmatian coastline, right by the pebble/sand beach and just a couple of miles from the town centre.
Hotel Pastura, Postira, Brac Island (4 stars)
This is, in our opinion, one of the finest hotels on Croatia’s most beautiful island. It is a relatively small hotel, with just fifty rooms (fifteen of which are luxurious suites, and four of which are apartments which can accommodate up to five people each), but its facilities are akin to those of a large hotel. Guests can enjoy the excellent restaurant, bar and café, swimming pool and spa, and are right on the edge of the beautiful waters of the Adriatic.
Hotel Milenij, Opatija (5 stars)
Although the Milenij was only built a few years ago, it has the look and elegance of a hotel built at the turn of the century. You won’t find a better hotel than this in Opatija – its five star rating says it all, but be prepared for the price tag that goes with it! But if you can afford to splash out, you won’t regret it. This hotel offers the very best cuisine and excellent service to boot, and is located in one of Croatia’s most beautiful areas, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Adriatic Sea. Facilities include luxury guest rooms, a large private pool and whirlpool, conference facilities and an underground car park.
