Haludovo hotel

Haludovo Palace Hotel: no vacancies. In the past, this resort was advertised as 'a complete island paradise in Europe'. It was a beautiful property.

In 2016, I’m not a hotel guest, but someone trying to capture a glimpse of its previous glory. The Haludovo Palace Hotel is an abandoned resort hotel located on the Croatian island of Krk, built in the early seventies. The opening of this new complex caused excitement in the media . A year after it opened, Bob Guccione, the founder of the Penthouse magazine, invested 45 million dollars in the project and opened a swanky new casino in the hotel.

Lots of fancy guests visited Haludovo: presidents, ministers, famous actors, politicians… This was a time when Krk airport was buzzing with people from all around the world, each one of them seeking fun and relaxation in a prestigious resort.

Haludovo was a synonym for the best of tourism in the Adriatic. This hotel, once packed with gentlemen and ladies of leisure, now lies in decay. From broken glass to beds riddled with mould, this abandoned hotel is a world away from its luxurious past.

For a genuine fright, take a walk down its hallways. Sometimes, it seems like the guests never left.
