Last year is hardly behind us before there is yet another opening or renovation of a luxury hotel on the Adriatic coast. In the editorial board of the magazine we have therefore taken it upon ourselves to refresh the list of luxuryresorts that also have larger conference facilities.

In the rankings, we have taken into account the following minimum criteria:
– Conference hall for min. 200 persons
– Luxurious and characterful banquet hall
– Outdoor terraces and attractive venues for receptions overlooking the sea
– Location with outstanding architecture and natural environment
In addition, the provider must operate as a resort with a comprehensive and complex offer of restaurants, conference facilities, sports and a further additional offer.
