Design Hotel Navis
Perched on the very edge of the water on a secluded stretch of Croatia's Opatija Riviera, this contemporary boutique hotel offers a stay as memorable as its setting. Every room fronts the sea, with a full wall of glass that lends a feeling of being one with the marine environment. Spacious rooms have sleek, modern furnishings in jewel tones. A minimalist design vibe complements rather than detracts from the view commanding your attention. Rooms are air conditioned, but each has a private balcony accessed through a glass door for when you want nothing between you and the salt air. Choose one king or two twin beds. Amenities include flat screen satellite TV, Wi-Fi, safe and mini bar. Roomy bathrooms have stone walls, a walk-in glass shower, vessel bowl sink, bathrobes and slippers, hair dryer and high-end toiletries.
Every element of the hotel is designed to capitalize on the absolutely stunning coastal setting, including the sun-drenched terrace hugging the rocks and the dining veranda built over the water. Meals here are a spectacular experience. Situated on a cliff overlooking Preluk Bay, the restaurant offers an enticing view of the Kvarner archipelago as you enjoy an inspired menu of seasonal and local ingredients crafted into creative gourmet fare. The menu may feature Adriatic tuna carpaccio, lobster, fresh oysters, steak with fresh Istrian truffles, gregada fish and potato stew and homemade bread baked in the wood-burning oven.
Time permitting, indulge in a treatment at the Senses Spa from a full slate of therapies including massage, facials, scrubs, steam bath, Finnish sauna and more.
