Something not only new, but incredibly flashy is on the cards for the Kvarner area…
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 10th of January, 2019, the town of Ika, located close to the popular Opatija, is the site of the upcoming and reportedly the most luxurious Croatian boutique five-star hotel to date, set to be opened in April by the company owned by well known Croatian entrepreneur Pavo Zubak. The total value of the project, according to its investors, stands at a massive 80 million kuna.
Kvarner’s up and coming Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa is being designed by the highly respected Artelior architecture stutio with offices in both Zagreb and London, and the very hotel itself will be housed within a 5,000-square-foot natural park. The underground tunnel below the Lungo Mare promenade will be connected to a private beach that even allows mooring for boats.
As a boutique hotel, Ikador will boast eight luxury rooms and six exclusive suites, all of which can accommodate 42 people. The minimum size of a room is fifty square metres with a terrace, while the suites provide eighty square metres, also with a terrace. The hotel will also boast the most luxurious presidential suite of up to 280 square metres, alongside 145 square metres of accompanying terrace.
Even before its actual opening, Ikador has already managed to become a member of the leading hotel association of luxury hotels, The Leading Hotels of the World, on which the hotel has certainly deserved its placement owing to the first exclusive Riva lounge in Croatia, which will be part of the hotel, has featured Kvarner’s new gem. The Riva lounge is not only the first of its sort in Croatia, but is the fourth in the entire world, following those in Monte Carlo, Venice, and Mykonos, putting Opatija in a prestigious group of some of the most prestigious and most exclusive international destinations.
The aim of the investor is to create a year-round tourist destination, and in line with that desire, Ikador will offer a wide range of spa, wellness and fitness facilities which will occupy the entire third floor of the hotel, providing an impressive view of the stunning Opatija Riviera. In addition, a top a la carte restaurant with a capacity for as many as fifty guests, a cigar bar, a heated outdoor pool with sea water and an underground garage with electric car chargers will be available for guests of what will more than likely be the Kvarner area’s ”place to be”.
Forty staff members will be in charge of the excellent service, most of whom will be employed permanently, as the hotel plans to remain open throughout the year.
