Romance and luxury in Croatia

Less than a year since its April 2019 opening, the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj in Croatia has joined The Leading Hotels of the World.

Rovinj, in Istria, is one of Croatia’s most romantic spots, and its  physical beauty is exhilarating. The pastel houses crammed onto a peninsula catch the sunlight during the day and shimmer with light at night. The Venetian bell tower of the St Euphemia Cathedral extends like a punctuation point to the sky.

The Grand Park Hotel Rovinj is part of the Maistra hospitality group, which also includes the Monte Mulini Hotel in Rovinj. Known for its exclusiveness, the Monte Mulini Hotel became a member of the LHW in 2012.

“The membership in The Leading Hotels of the World, which is considered to be a guarantee of quality for luxury hotels, is yet another confirmation of the exceptional status the Grand Park Hotel enjoys,” said Tomislav Popović, Maistra’s CEO.

Worth the equivalent of about $100 million, the hotel represents the largest single investment by the tourism business subdivision of Adris Group, which owns Maistra.

The hotel is is situated across from the old town of Rovinj, with a view of the Church of St Euphemia and the island of St Catherine.

There are 209 rooms and suites in the six-storey venue, where guests can enjoy restaurants, bars, a wellness and spa centre, and a plaza that includes numerous shops.
