Hilton has announced the signing of a franchise agreement with Katarina Line d.o.o that will result in the opening of Croatia’s first Curio Collection by Hilton hotel.

Keight Hotel Opatija, Curio Collection by Hilton is expected to open its doors next year and will boast 24 guestrooms.

The hotel will feature a ground floor restaurant and bar, as well as a rooftop bar with sundeck and pool. A second swimming pool will be situated inside the hotel’s spa.

A 100 m² multi-purpose meeting space, complete with 50 parking spaces for guests, is available for business seminars.

The property will be located in the seaside resort of Opatija. Croatia’s third largest city, Rijeka, lies just 14 km away.

Keight Hotel Opatija, Curio Collection by Hilton will be operated by Zagreb City Hotels d.o.o., which currently manages three of the five other Hilton-branded hotels in the country.

With 70 hotels trading or under development in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Curio Collection by Hilton continues to prove its popularity with owners, who can preserve the unique identity of their hotels while benefiting from Hilton's powerful commercial engine. Hot off the heels of two Greek island openings under the brand, we're excited to announce our first Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel in Croatia, further expanding our portfolio of properties in popular European resort towns. Opening next year, Keight Hotel Opatija will be a welcome addition to the Adriatic Coast.

We're thrilled to work with Hilton to introduce the Curio Collection by Hilton brand to the Croatian market. Opatija is a fantastic all-year-round destination and famous Riviera, the cradle of Croatian tourism with the first hotel built in early 1884. This newly developed property combines the amenities guests can expect of an upscale Hilton brand in a central location in the heart of the town. We're looking forward to welcoming guests next year.

Katica Hauptfeld, Owner of Katarina Line d.o.o.

It's a great honour to be recognised by Hilton as a respectable management company as much as to be chosen by Katarina Line d.o.o. as a trusted partner to operate the hotel.
