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. Seamlessly cut into the Adriatic hillside, the sunbathing terrace, bar, restaurant and three pools, harmoniously blend with the nearby protection of Lone Bay. Designed by Croatian architects 3LHD, this swathe of luxury mirrors the hotel's sleek and curved S-shape, conjuring up images of an elegant cruise liner floating through the forest-edged waters. Cocooned by pine, cypress, and cedar trees, the 248-room Hotel Lone's new all-encompassing outdoor area fuses form, function and pleasure.
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. 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.
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.
Hotel Lone is the first Croatian member of Design Hotels™ and opened in summer 2011 in Rovinj on the Istrian Peninsula. Thanks to its location along the coast each room boasts sea or park views. Three restaurants, three bars and a night club invite for culinary experiences. With its Mediterranean wellness center, the auditorium for 600 guests and nine further conference rooms with the most recent technology, the hotel is the perfect choice for holidays and business trips alike.
