Overview

Hip beach hangout on Croatia’s Istrian coastline with three pools, farm-to-table cuisine and an enormous spa

The Lowdown

The 186-room, Mediterranean-inspired Kempinski Hotel Adriatic occupies prime real estate on Croatia’s unspoiled Istrian coastline, and with three pools (one indoor, two outdoor), it’s easy to make a splash at this mod beach hangout. Guestrooms are done in earthy tones such as olive green and beige and feature natural hardwood floors; all have balconies or terraces with unbroken views of the Adriatic Sea, city or nearby vineyards. Kempinski Hotel Adriatic also houses an enormous spa, seasonal beach and pool bar and a kids’ club. Rather stay active? There are a four artificial grass tennis courts, and if you want to venture out to the neighboring medieval towns, mountain bikes can be rented from the hotel. Gourmands can sample the best of the countryside’s farm-to-table dining traditions and burgeoning wine industry at one of two restaurants. Dine al fresco at Kanova, which is open from late spring through early fall, and try zesty Istrian dishes that include truffles, hand-made cheeses and olives.

In the Area

The Istrian coastline is a magnet for both outdoorsy types and foodies, with plenty to keep both parties occupied. Cyclists can explore over 300 miles of bike paths and stop along the way to check out charming old towns such as Savudrija, which is home to a historic lighthouse. Take to the links and improve your swing at the Golf Club Adriatic, an 18-hole course whose stylish clubhouse features knockout ocean views, or set out on a day trip to one of the charming hilltop towns, but don’t miss artsy Grožnjan or the 13th century walled city of Motovun. Another must-do? Tucking into one of the region’s most prized ingredients, the truffle, at the famous Motovun restaurant Zigante, where the earthy delicacy stars in every dish.

Luxurious Adriatic
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel is in a very quiet and peaceful area, overlooking the sea with great views as far as the eye can reach. The rooms are beautifully presented to make you feel very special. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Dijana restaurant, food and wine choices and quality, outstanding.

Great Experience and perfect Service
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We loved staying at the Kempinski Adriatic Hotel for five days. The Staff was super nice and we felt very welcome. Also the view on the sea was beautiful. We even got 20 % on every Cocktail, 15 % on every Massage. Yes, the breakfast is not as good as in other 5*-Hotels, but the food at the Dijana Restaurant was perfect. The only thing that was a bit annoying that the hotel seemed a bit like it's still sleeping. The fitness was still closed and there was something going on at the spa because there was repair work. All in all i would recommend the hotel!

First Class in All Respects
Reviewed 5 months ago

This hotel is first class in all respects – front desk, facilities, room, room service, restaurant and the view. No one wants to see a doctor while on vacation but unfortunately, I did. Their professional front desk arranged for a doctor to make a house call that day at a very reasonable rate. The doctor returned the next day with my medication and to check on me without charging another house call. While I was basically confined to our room and the hotel pool area due to limited mobility, considering the sea view from the large comfortable room and the serenity of the pool area this was more a positive than a negative. We ate one night at the hotel restaurant. I had sea bass several times during our multi-day Adriatic trip and the sea bass served at the Kempinski on a bed of kale was the best we had during our entire trip. This is a hotel I wish we could have stayed at longer.
