May 17, 2022

*Have a great vacation - specifically, in Croatia, the land of diversity. On the coast, more than a thousand islands, from Lošinj to Hvar, covered by barren rocky landscapes or lush green fauna, gather. Charming coastal cities like Rijeka, Zadar or Dubrovnik invite you to stroll and marvel at millennia-old culture. And one can't forget the excellent Croatian cuisine inspired by the sea - you will not be disappointed.

Hotel Bellevue 

Čikat bay, Lošinj

Tucked away on Croatia's green "wellness island" of Lošinj, which attracted Austria's well-heeled population to the south in droves more than a hundred years ago, is the Hotel Bellevue. The five-star establishment in the romantic Čikat Bay specializes in excellent spa treatments, outstanding cuisine and feel-good stays in the spacious rooms and suites decorated in natural tones. The focus is on the healing effects of nature, owed to the many plants of the island: so in the exclusive Spa Clinic, freshly picked herbs of the island are used. On the plates, you will find vegetables that grow directly on Lošinj.

Especially great: At Matsunoki, chef Orhan Cakiroglu, who refined his sushi arts at Zuma, Nobu and Hakkasan creates contemporary Japanese cuisine with the fresh catch directly from the surrounding waters. Alfred Keller in the neighbouring Hotel Alhambra is also open to Bellevue guests. The excellent cuisine of young talent Michael Gollenz - accompanied by excellent wines from the region - is not to be missed. Živjeli!

Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa

Opatija, Istria

Puccini, Mahler, Lehár and Kálmán were already inspired by the intoxicating nature of Istria, and at the Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa, contemporary travellers can do the same: the boutique hotel houses 16 exclusive designer rooms and suites, from which you can enjoy a direct view of the Kvarner Bay. A truly inspiring sight, where one or the other may even compose a serenade - or at least rediscover the art of relaxation.

The Mediterranean dishes - whether à la carte or tasting menu, you decide yourself - are also a symphony at the Nobilion. Breakfast is also served there in the morning. During the day, you'll find yourself on the lake deck, tanning in the sun and spending the day by the pool with signature cocktails and indulgent bites in the Riva Lounge. Want more adventure? The Riva Aquariva super speedboat takes you through the Kvarner Bay in no time at all. If you're looking for a bit of relaxation after that, simply head to the Ikalia Spa; a must: the Sounds Tuning Ceremony.
