Hotel & Casa Valamar Sanfior
Time Out says
On Istria’s lesser-known, undeveloped and wild east coast, Rabac is the setting for a new premium hotel due to open in 2013: the Valamar Sanfior. Comprising both hotel and the luxury suites of the Sanfior Casa, the major, family-friendly venture of Valamar Sanfior sits surrounded by cool pine woods and stunning beaches overlooking Rabac Bay. Valamar Sanfior consists of 242 rooms and suites. You can choose your own pillow, request an anti-allergic mattress, and ask for an extra bed or cot, according to your wishes. All sea view rooms come with balconies. Along with pools indoor and out, heated, child-friendly and fresh-water, the Valamar Sanfior lays on a summer-long programme of child-focused entertainment for all ages, as well as aqua aerobics, water skiing, speedboats with parachutes, free climbing, diving, paintball and tennis courts and tuition. A spa centre features Finnish, Turkish and infra-red saunas, massage treatments, pedicures, manicures and beauty treatments. Here is where you’ll find the fresh-water indoor pool, with its prime view of the surrounding sea. At the adjoining Blue Flag beach, guests may sunbathe on purpose-built platforms or take advantage of the naturally shaded areas when the sun is at its height. Showers, dressing cabins, deck chairs and sunshades are also provided. In the Sanfior Casa, dining and drinking options include a lounge bar by the pool, a bistro snack bar and literary café with internet, complemented by a pool bar and romantic terrace restaurant at the Valamar Sanfior Hotel, where a buffet breakfast is served.
