Rovinj is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and romantic Mediterranean cities. This boutique hotel is located on Rovinj’s most beautiful bay, just off the city centre along the main pedestrian promenade. Croatia’s leading tourism company in the Zlatni rt (Golden Cape) protected forest park created a top tourist area with different category hotels, which in addition to the hotel Monte Mulini includes design hotels Lone, Eden and Park. The most prestigious Maistra hotel is, due to its exclusivity, involved in the chain of The Leading Hotels of the World, which since 1928 has been bringing together the world’s 430 most luxurious hotels with very strict entry threshold and quality standards.
The hotel is located by the sea and just a 10 minute walk away along a well maintained and decorated footpath from Rovinj’s central town square. Otherwise, Rovinj is considered one of the closest Mediterranean congress destinations for Central and Western Europe in the northernmost part of the Mediterranean. The main advantage is the high-quality road connections. A bigger problem is air accessibility, but in the context of the position near six international airports, this is improving from year to year. Guests arriving by car are well taken care of with an underground garage and outdoor parking spaces.
COLD APPETISER – Architecture and aesthetics
The architecture of the hotel is refined, modern and somewhat conservative. It is characterised by a high lobby with a glass facade and overlooking the bay. Hotel designers from the well known British Bureau Wimberly Allison Tong & Gooo were working on the model of creating luxury hotels with a touch of prestige, which was tested in a number of the world’s top hotel chains. In practice this means a powerful lobby, spacious rooms and superior horticultural landscaping of the hotel surroundings. There can be no complaints about the look of the hotel; it is different enough to attract some more glances and unique enough to distinguish itself from the nearby more daring Lone Design hotel.
WARM APPETISER – Personnel and culinary offer
The joy of living in and comfort of the rooms has been placed in the appropriate form. This is also followed up by the personnel who are at the top level of friendliness and professionalism and have a personal approach to guests. The main part of the hotel luxury is in the extraordinary gastronomic offer in the Wine Vault and Mediterraneo restaurants, where renowned chef Tomislav Gretić operates. Many come to Rovinj because of its culinary arts. The spirit of French and the tradition of Mediterranean gastronomy is also present in excellent and diverse breakfasts. We especially appreciate seasonal adjustment of the dishes and superb local ingredients.
MAIN COURSE – Congress and hotel offer
Hotel rooms are at the top, if not at the top of comfort, luxury and pampering accessories. For a hotel of this category, it is clear that they have taken care of a number of gadgets that make the stay at the hotel pleasant.
Hotel Monte Mulini has two luxury convention halls for receptions, banquets and other events for up to 250 participants.
