Wednesday 18, August 2010
The Rezidor Hotel Group has opened the Radisson Blu Resort Split in Croatia – a luxurious hotel right on the Adriatic coast with panoramic views over the Mediterranean Sea and the island Brac.
After an extensive renovation and reconstruction, the former and legendary “Hotel Split” with a history of nearly 50 years offers 240 stylish guest rooms including 2 outstanding Presidential suites. “We are delighted to add a further outstanding first class hotel to our Croatian portfolio. Rezidor aims to grow its young and successful resort business further – and Croatia as an emerging holiday destination in Europe offers not only beautiful landscapes but also the needed infrastructure and manpower”, says Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.
The Radisson Blu Resort Split is located only 15 walking minutes away from the historic city centre and along a wonderful pristine beach along the Adriatic Sea – it is a unique combination of a city hotel and a sea resort and headed by General Manager Maik Schaefer, a German national. Whether guests choose the classical, yet modern Economy Rooms or the Standard- and Deluxe Rooms or the suites with their ultra-stylish, light and airy design: The majority of rooms offer breathtaking sea views. Higher room categories also feature extras such as balconies, Nespresso machines, bathrobes & -slippers. The Presidential suites comprise 260 m² each, 3 bedrooms, a private terrace with Jacuzzi and an outdoor sauna.
Two restaurants, a bar and a Lobby Lounge will pamper every palate: “The Fig Leaf” restaurant serves Radisson Blu’s signature “super breakfast” and international buffets with an abundant choice of Mediterranean and Continental specialties as well as live cooking stations and a wonderful terrace towards the sea. “The Caper”, the grill restaurant in a modern and sleek environment, combines equally stunning views, grilled cuts, delicious fish and selected wines from Croatia and all around the world. “The Door” bar adds a modern twist to a list of international and award-winning cocktails, and the Lobby Lounge with a cozy atmosphere is a perfect meeting place at the hotel’s lobby level.
Besides access to a private stunning beach with sunbeds, separate plateau and bar service, the hotel also comprises an indoor- and outdoor pool, a fitness centre and an exclusive Anne Sémonin-Spa with 8 treatment rooms, whirlpool, sauna and steam baths. Within the hotel grounds, an international casino will be housed, and for those you want to combine business and leisure, the hotel offers 7 meeting rooms and a banquet hall, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
