Radisson Hotel Group announces the debut of its luxury lifestyle Radisson Collection brand in Croatia, with the opening of Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel.
The opening of Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel follows an extensive £30 million repositioning of the Hotel Brioni, one of Croatia’s best-known hotels, by Radisson Hotel Group’s partner PPHE Hotel Group and its Croatian subsidiary Arena Hospitality Group.
Originally built in the 1970s, the hotel was one of the most prominent tourist destination. It was also a getaway for many celebrities, including artists, film stars and politicians.
The hotel occupies a cliff-side location on the Adriatic, overlooking the Brijuni islands, which were the inspiration for the hotel’s name. It features 227 rooms, infinity swimming pools, multiple restaurants and bars as well as health and wellness facilities.
The interiors are designed by Studio 92 and the property features art by renowned Croatian artists, connecting the heritage of this iconic hotel with the modernity of today.
Concerning the F&B offering the hotel features several restaurants and bars, which serves Mediterranean cuisine, and all ingredients are sourced locally from producers and artisans selected by the team of chefs.
Among the several restaurants there are Brioni Forum, which serves international specialties with an emphasis on local recipes and Brioni Lungo Mare, which offers a choice of Mediterranean meat and seafood specialties. The hotel also hosts a fine dining restaurant which is named Restaurant Sofia.
The Wellness Centre, Gemma di Brioni, extends over two floors, with an indoor pool and whirlpool, three saunas and six treatment rooms. In the fitness area and gym, guests can enjoy the availability of top-of-the-range Technogym equipment.
Digital technologies are an integral part of the hotel experience and guests are encouraged to use their mobile devices to access all of the hotel's extensive services. These include opening guest rooms using a mobile digital key, the control of air-conditioningas well as the check-in and the check-out.
The opening of Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel is a tremendous achievement for us, as we introduce our luxury lifestyle brand to this culturally rich city and region, the first on the Adriatic coast and our first in partnership with PPHE Hotel Group. Radisson Collection properties embrace and represent the local culture and design wherever they are located, and this is true here at Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel. Guests will be able to discover Croatian art, dine in one of the many restaurants and take in all that the Istrian Peninsula has to offer.
