City or beach? You don’t need to choose at the stylish Radisson Blu Resort, Split. This sleek hotel is situated just a few steps from the beautiful pebble beaches of the Adriatic’s Dalmatian Coast, while also boasting a prime address less than two miles from the center of Croatia’s second-largest city, where you’ll find the UNESCO-protected Diocletian’s Palace.
Aside from its perfect location that puts you near sea, city and cultural sights, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner has plenty more to recommend it, starting with the pretty views overlooking nearby Adriatic islands. There’s also a luxurious outdoor pool, a dreamy spa and several dining options.
Decorated in refreshing aquamarine hues, Deluxe rooms offer 312 square feet for you to spread out in, plus a city view. Upgraded bathrooms feature bathtubs or walk-in showers. Junior suites are much larger, at 592 square feet, and include a living room, as well as pretty sea views.
The resort is home to a number of eating and drinking options. Head to The Mistral Restaurant & Bar for delicious seafood and a local barbecue by the beach, or make the most out of the impressive Caper Grill, offering up Mediterranean classics with a modern twist, served with a side of stunning Adriatic views. For further options, Split’s nearby city center is renowned for its lively restaurant-and-bar scene.
Radisson Blu Resort’s expansive spa is the largest of its kind in Split, boasting more than 20,000 square feet of space. With a range of treatments available, the spa also features traditional Finnish saunas, a large, cold plunge pool and a Japanese Onsen pool. Please note that pre-booking is essential to guarantee a treatment.
The resort is a short walk from the beach and a five-minute drive from Split’s city center, where the iconic Diocletian’s Palace – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – is just one of the many things to see. Overlooking neighboring Croatian islands and the crystal blue Adriatic Sea, the hotel is perfectly placed for both idyllic beach and city getaways.
How to Get There
A great, modern hotel in a convenient location. Rooms were good an modern, bathroom large. Service was friendly. Unfortunately, they use kapok/feather pillows and dunas which many are allergic to. The restaurants were good, and the breakfast outstanding
I stayed for business purpose but prolong the stay for private reasons. The hotel is really great, with great sea view if you are lucky to get such room. I was positioned in the new part of the hotel. View from the room was amazing, the room was new with comfortable beds; I slept very well. The location offers nice walk near the beach and restaurants are close with great sea food offer. Breakfast is delicious, the most picky person can find something to eat.
Split has very few decent hotels on (or near) the beach. A new one (the Amphora) is due to open next spring, just east of the Radisson, which will be worth checking out. Until then, this is the best option for those requiring access to the sea, plus a good swimming pool and a ‘holiday’ ambience. This comes at a price – and I don’t just mean the room rates. The surroundings could hardly be called an area of outstanding natural beauty. This is an ugly suburb, and even the sea views are contaminated by unfinished buildings. However, you soon get used to this, and the hotel itself is friendly, efficiently run, well designed and relaxing. The superior suites are not cheap, but they are large, with two-way-facing balconies and are very well appointed, with extra facilities such as a coffee-maker, and two TV’s.
Although the location is some 25-30 minutes’ walk into town, taxis, and Uber, are constantly available, and cheap by UK standards. Although breakfast in the hotel is pretty good, we would not recommend eating there in the evening. The buffet did not look very appetising, and the Caper Grill is over-priced and bland (though the views are great). Otherwise, the nearest restaurant is about 20 mins walk away, so it pays to take a taxi into the Old City, where there are plenty of eateries to suit all tastes and prices (but do your research. There are some expensive tourist-traps). The hotel bar is very welcoming, with a nice terrace for viewing the spectacular sunsets. The spa area is also large and relaxing and the treatments very professional. All-in-all this is a very decent place to stay while visiting the historical delights of Split.
