An €80 million project, announced at the end of 2019, Hilton Rijeka Costabella Beach Resort & Spa is now in its final stages of construction.
The hotel is located between the well-known beach destination Opatija and the coastal town of Rijeka, an area especially popular among German and Austrian tourists, who account for as much as 25% of all tourist arrivals to Croatia. The hotel is already accepting reservations for June 1, 2021, and beyond, but the owners are still patiently waiting for the epidemiological state to improve and tourism to restart.
The owner of JTH Costabela, Jaroslav Trešnak, said that the facility had progressed despite the unpredictability of the pandemic and that the company had adhered to all the prescribed measures in order to reach its goal.
