The island of Mali Lošinj has from the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire been appreciated as the island with the most beneficial climate for the treatment of respiratory diseases. Today, the climatic health resort is in a pretty bad shape, but the good climate remains. Hotel Punta Vital, near the charming port of Veli Lošinj, has been withdrawn from the more touristic side of Mali Lošinj.
Accessibility is perhaps the only weak point from the perspective of international guests. The nearest airport is on the island of Krk, which has some connections with low-cost carriers until mid-October, but otherwise the airports in Pula, Zagreb and Ljubljana are the nearest ones. In any case, you will have to get to the island by ferry. If we take the path as a part of the event to change the ferry ride into a part of an incentive programme, this could also be an interesting experience.
COLD APPETISER – Architecture and aesthetics
The hotel is not positioned primarily as a convention hotel, but as a ‘Vitality hotel’. The hotel’s 2012 renovation was well considered, taking into account the needs of modern guests who wish to take leave to recharge their batteries and to find their inner balance. This is enhanced by the carefully planned colour combinations, dominated by shades of lavender, accompanied by the aroma of lavender, which is sensed in the hotel lobby.
WARM APPETISER – Personnel and culinary offer
In the hotel, which is open from April to the end of October, it certainly takes a lot of energy for the team to set itself up and to act in perfect timing. In the hotel Punta Vital one is glad to see the team wearing the uniform, this time in the colours of lavender. In the middle of the season, in the maximum heat, the approach to guests is professional and friendly almost without exception. A rich buffet breakfast and dinner in a pleasantly equipped restaurant and on the terrace include Mediterranean specialties and a wide selection of healthy, macrobiotic and locally grown food.
MAIN COURSE – Congress and hotel offer
The rooms are comfortable, stylish, clean and adequately spacious. The bed and bed linen provide for restful sleep. Wireless internet works perfectly, quickly, and is included in the price. An excellent choice for incentive – for companies that invest in their employees. With a little imagination, any business meeting, conference or education can be enriched with programmes for relaxation and maintenance of vitality. Hall, intended for events at the Punta Vital hotel, can take 72 people (theatre set-up), otherwise for larger events the Aurora hotel is better suited.
DESSERT – Additional offer
Great emphasis on the welfare of guests. In Mali Lošinj some 1,100 plant species grow. The most typical aromas are captured in high-quality hotel cosmetics. The specialty of the Hotel Punta is its Vitality Zone, with a number of programmes to sustain the vitality of the body and mind.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
The only thing that could be described as a weakness is the more difficult accessibility. Today, when the saying that ‘time is gold’ is even more valid, the journey to the hotel Punta could be an obstacle for some.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Very affordable packages with DDR – daily delegate rate. Information on the offer and the content of packages are available on the hotel’s website.
OVERALL IMPRESSIONS AND CREDIBILITY
A natural environment that has a calming effect – on one side the sea, on the other pine trees. Although Punta, because of its positioning as a ‘Vitality hotel’ on the first ball does not catch congress guests, it is a very suitable choice for the organisation of business and motivational events for groups of up to 60 guests. Professional service, friendly staff, solid cuisine, reasonable prices and interesting additional offer.
