Croatia is a country situated in the southeast region of Europe with beautiful Adriatic coast and numerous islands. We visited town of Rovinj which is located on the western coast of Istria, the largest Croatian peninsula. From Zagreb, the capital of Croatia is 3,5 hour drive, from Trieste, Italy 1,5 and from Ljubljana, Slovenia 2,5 hour drive. Rovinj is a popular tourist destination; the main tourist season lasts from June to September and peak of season is in July and August. Rovinj has numerous natural and historical attractions, especially the idyllic and romantic old town with narrow streets, shops and restaurants.
Therefore Rovinj is considered as one of the most romantic places on the Adriatic coast. There you have all types of accommodation, from camping to five-star hotels. We chose the hotel Lone, modern five-star hotel with an emphasis on the art of design. Hotel Lone is located on the coast in the park Zlatni Rt (Golden Cape) full of pine trees. From hotel to the old town of Rovinj there is 15 minute walk along the coast.
Hotel Lone has 236 modern rooms and 12 suites. The entire hotel is furnished in modern design. Rooms are very modern, spacious and very clean.
Hotel Lone has several restaurants and bars. We chose only breakfast because we wanted to try local Istrian cousine. Breakfast was rich and very tasty. We decided to try also the food in hotel's restaurant. Hotel has restaurants named L, ON and E. We had dinner in restaurant L which has the view over the wonderful ambience of the hotel swimming pool complex. We tryed seafood which was tasty and the prices were suitable for the level of five-star hotel, slightly higher than in local restaurants in Rovinj.
Hotel Lone offers relaxation in wellness center and indoor swimming pool which is suitable for the winter months but in the summer there is a large swimming pool complex and the beautiful beach which is located next to the hotel. As we visited hotel Lone in April we enjoyed in indoor swimming pool and wellness center.
If you plan to visit southern Europe than you can not miss the beautiful Croatian coast with many islands. Town of Rovinj offers idyllic atmosphere while Hotel Lone adds a touch of luxurious and modern design.
