Set near but apart from the Island Hotel Istra, the All Suite Island Hotel Istra is just that – all suite and certainly idyllic. Catered for by a concierge, room service and the Lanterna fish restaurant, guests are accommodated in 32 executive or deluxe suites, each featuring a balcony or loggia. In a huge spa and pool area, cosmetic treatments and Mediterranean-herb massages can be reserved, alongside the aroma sauna, Kneipp foot baths and indoor and outdoor whirlpools. Sports on offer include archery, kayak canoeing, windsurfing and diving, and among the high-end gym equipment are ski-running simulators. Clubs, activities, workshops and programmes for kids are provided in four age categories.
Rovinj’s tasteful but limited accommodation stock has been transformed by the maistra group, which has created gleaming, family-friendly resorts, turned whole islands into self-contained hotel complexes festooned with pools, spas and restaurants, and conceived two of the finest properties on the Med, one an architectural wonder. The lodgings in historic properties remain in place for those who wish a quiet stay amid the cobbled streets of the Old Town.
