RENOVATION OF THE FLAGSHIP OF PULA'S TOURISM

The esteemed Grand Brioni Hotel that has undergone extensive refurbishment in the last two years, will officialy open its doors in March. Constructed in 1964, the hotel was long known as the flagship of tourism in Pula. It was created in the golden era of the Pula Film Festival and hosted countless stars of that time. Arena Hospitality Group embarked on a mission to return its former glory.

The Arena Hospitality Group invested an estimated 32 million euros into the renovation of the hotel, one of the largest investments in Croatian tourism in recent years. Hotel Brioni, which will be called the Grand Brioni Hotel from March, is synonymous with grand events that have taken place here for decades. The new management aims to attract wealthy clientele from Europe, Russia and especially the United States.

Grand Brioni Hotel boasts 227 rooms and a spacious wellness and spa centre with an indoor pool of 1,300 square meters. Additionally, it will be home to restaurants, bars and a congress centre, along with outdoor swimming pools. The original rooms overlooking Brijuni and the open sea have been neatly preserved. A welcome novelty is a feature that will see rooms be unlockable with mobile devices.

“The newly renovated hotel will employ between 200 and 300 employees, and we have already started recruiting our workforce. We are looking forward to the end of our project, and with it, we have preserved and raised the architecture of this hotel, which is truly special,” said the President of the Board of AHG, Rally Slonim.

Special emphasis will be given to gastronomy, and one of the restaurants will serve exclusive steaks of protected Istrian boškarin cattle. The congress halls will bear the names of the islets of the Brijuni archipelago. Undoubtedly, the new addition will become the most luxurious hotel in Pula.
