It’s not everyday you find yourself on the cusp of the Adriatic Sea in Croatia’s rich history and culture. Nor is it everyday you can spend your nights at two hotels in the fascinating seaside country. Thanks to Hotel Monte Mulini and Hotel Lune, now you can.
Hotel Lone is a chic, five star hotel situated in the coastal area of Rovinj, featuring 236 rooms and 12 suites with panoramas near the sea, surrounded by the centuries-old Zlatni Rt Park Forest and walking distance to the town center. With an eye-catching modern building in the shape of an ocean liner, Hotel Lone playfully references its Adriatic setting while still giving way to the gourmet fare of the region. The hotel features three restaurants offering a mixture of traditional Croatian and Mediterranean fusion-style food along with several bars and a nightclub. Its spa, which features a scented steam sauna, Finnish sauna, infrared sauna, gym, relaxation area, indoor fresh-water pool with special hydro-massage effects and eight multi-function treatments rooms with views of the surrounding forest park, exudes euro-luxury.
Last year, the hotel launched a new “Design Food menu” at Restaurat L, which links food and design, with items such as “Fois Gras Magnum” a savory take on the popular “Magnum” ice cream bars, Spicy Thai soup interpreted like the classic tea ceremony and Seabass baked and presented in paper to stimulate the senses. This month, the hotel opened an outdoor pool area that is equipped with sunbathing terraces, a restaurant serving light bites, a pool bar, a summer stage for performances and an exclusive area only for guests of Hotel Lone.
The next luxury stay is Hotel Monte Mulini, located in a tranquil bay near the picturesque old town of Rovinj. Monte Mulini is renowned as one of Croatia’s most elegant and refined properties, with a dramatic, contemporary building set in the hillside of the Golden Cape and is surrounded by the centuries-old Zlatni Rt Park Forest.
The hotel features 113 rooms with sweeping sea views, a beautiful pool, an opulent spa, and two gourmet restaurants. Restaurant Mediterraneo offers Mediterranean fusion cuisine while the Wine Vault is among one of Croatia’s top fine dining restaurants. Serving French delicacies with a Croatian touch, the Wine Vault restaurant also boasts an impressive wine cellar with over 600 Croatian and international wines. Another feature of the property is the spa, which uses healing properties of Mediterranean plant and marine-based essences to give guests a peace of mind, body and soul. A swimming complex covers four outdoor pools with beautiful views of the sea and Lone bay.
This autumn, a new beach will be debuting that will be accessible for both Hotel Lone and Hotel Monte Mulini guests. The beach will be public, with a special area reserved for hotel guests with umbrellas and sunbeds available. The beach will feature a Beach Bar where guests can enjoy delicious sandwiches and salads as well as champagne and oysters.
