For many visitors to Croatia, holidays there wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the stunning beauty of Rovinj. |
This is just one of those locations that has to be seen rather than described. The ancient town with its red-roofed houses juts out on a promontory into the impossibly blue sea.
If you’re a discerning traveller though, Croatia as a destination has far more to offer than just pretty views. Some of the hotels and accommodation in and around Rovinj stand in favourable comparison with the very best anywhere in the world.
Just a few highlights of what you might find there are given below.
Island Hotel Katarina
Try as hard as you like, you won’t find many better views than that available from this beautiful hotel located on a small island directly opposite the old town across the water.
The views are so breathtaking that you might be forgiven for not thinking much about the hotel’s other facilities – but it has them aplenty including beaches, beautiful parkland, a wide range of sports and marvellous dining in oak-beamed traditional restaurants.
Hotel Monte Mulini
This is a five-star boutique hotel where nothing has been left to chance as far as guest comfort is concerned.

The Lone Hotel
