Enticed by the fragrant Mediterranean forests and warm waters, the ancient woodlands and wave-lapped coves of Croatia’s Adriatic coast are a magnet for holidaymakers. Like a luxury cruise liner nestled on the hillside, the seductive minimalist curves of Hotel Lone’s design are influenced by the area’s unique natural landscape.
Tucked into the hillside of the ancient town of Rovinj, Hotel Lone complements the rich history of past settlements as Croatia’s first design conscious hotel. This summer brings the opening of the Hotel Lone’s new sweeping open-air living area.
Only a ten minute walk away from the central town square, the hotel was created by Maistra Inc. and architecture studio 3LHD to offer guests the perfect symbiosis of work-life balance. Bending away from the coastline in a distinctive Y-shape, all 248 rooms, including 11 suites are afforded with views of the island-speckled coast.
The hotel’s impressive business facilities combine minimalism, elegance and state-of-the-art technology.
The surrounding terrace’s elevated height, split among six levels, offers sunbathers stunning views of the bay and Croatian coastline. For the ultimate in relaxation, two outdoor massage spaces await.
The swimming area boasts three pools, measuring 1000 sq. meters all while maintaining the hotel’s design ethos of polished minimalism hugged by nature’s raw appeal. The pools are divided into Aqua Fun, Relax Pool and a shallow children’s pool. The Aqua Fun and Relax Pool are connected through a waterfall and feature a whirlpool, water massages, geysers, fountains and a 25-meter swimming track.
Along with the addition of the new outdoor area, Hotel Lone also introduces Restaurant Oleander. Dine on light Mediterranean cuisine from the grill or stone oven while sipping wine under wooden pergolas with the soothing soundtrack of sea breeze. Daytime invites the ease of linen and sandals, while night brings summer libations and grilled steaks for the cocktail crowd.
Set to the side of the property is the summer stage that can be used for various events including live bands, dance shows and movie nights.
From this vantage point guests can take in all the beauty that is Lone Bay and its sloping shores, a short 150-meters away. Ideally situated, Hotel Lone and its bountiful amenities entice as the ancient melds into the contemporary.
