The Croatian coastal city of Split has seen a renaissance in recent years, and is now a not-to-miss destination on the Dalmatian coast. In big hotel news from Split, the Hotel Park has reopened this summer after a big renovation. At the inauguration event, Tourism Minister Darko Lorencin stressed the five-star hotel’s importance for Croatian tourism- as 3.5 million euros of the 10 million euro project were financed with European funds.
Almost a century old, Hotel Park has 73 rooms (including six suites), a luxury spa, a pool, a Jacuzzi, gym, and meeting and events space. In terms of F&B outlers, there’s the gastronomic restaurant Bruna, a lobby bar, and an outdoor terrace that’s billed as the place to see and be seen.
A 10-minute walk from Diocletian’s Palace, the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Hotel Park is next to the famous sandy beach of Bačvice. (This location- five minutes from the Ferry terminal- is ideal for catching a boat the outlying islands, like Hvar, off the coast.)
