Sol Melia reopens two luxury resorts in Croatia under the Melia Hotels brand
Friday 7, May 2010
Sol Meliá, the largest resort hotel company in the world, has shown its commitment to improving the quality of its hotel portfolio in Croatia with the reopening of two resort hotels in Umag: the Meliá Coral and the Meliá Istrian Villas, both previously operated under the Sol Hotels brand.
The changes have required the adaptation of the hotels to the Meliá Hotels brand standards and its focus on excellent customer service, thus also adding to the attractiveness of Umag as a travel destination.
The new Meliá Coral provides 244 rooms, 6 luxury suites, a range of different options for corporate events, and a great choice of additional facilities including a spa, swimming pool, solarium, tapas bar and Mediterranean tavern. Its multi-purpose outdoor areas are also perfect for social events along with the creation of two new leisure areas for fun and relaxation: the Club Elite Automat and the Beach Club.
The Meliá Istrian Villas is an idyllic oasis of apartments alongside the sea yet only two kilometres from the centre of Umag, which combines traditional architecture with modern design and superior comfort. A place where guests can enjoy both the natural environment and total privacy or take part in a fantastic range of sports activities. This year the hotel also inaugurates a new restaurant named O Grill.
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.
