Rovinj’s big hitter until Hotel Lone opened its doors, Monte Mulini has five-star facilities to match its fabulous setting. All of the 99 rooms (including 14 suites) are fitted with contemporary-design carpets, bespoke furniture jacuzzi-tub bathrooms and balconies overlooking a small open-air pool. The hotel brushes up to a rocky beach with natural shade from nearby greenery, while a string of cove-like beaches run along one bay to the south. Sports facilities include four clay tennis courts, a basketball court, a bowling alley and gym. A fabulous spa area and an indoor pool are shared with the next-door Lone. Med fusion dishes feature at the Mediterraneo and Wine Vault restaurants, both overseen by award-winning chef Tomislav Gretić.
The five-star Hotel Lone, a new development amid the greenery of the Zlatni rt forest and park, has caused serious – and justified – excitement in the area.
Another outstanding property is the five-star Monte Mulini, with its two gourmet restaurants. It is run by the Maistra group also responsible for tourist hotels such as the Hotel Park with scuba diving, boat rentals and children’s clubs; and the self-catering Amarin Apartments. The latter is a great option as it shares a pool and restaurants so that you’re not tied to making your own food and entertainment.
