The Lav Hotel Complex with the five-star Le Meridien Lav Hotel, located 8 km south of the city of Split, opened its doors towards the end of 2006. The area of the facilities within the complex amounts to about 60 000 m2, while the green areas, promenades, beaches and a large luxury marina extend to another 40 000 m2. The hotel, which has 381 accommodation units, is part of the complex that offers a wealth of facilities and services including the congress centre, entertainment centre with a casino, a marina with 80 berths, health services and recreational facilities.
The Diocletian SPA within the Le Meridien Lav Hotel was aptly named after the Roman Emperor Diocletian who had himself built a magnificent palace which, among a myriad of wonderful features, contained luxurious baths. Carrying on with that tradition a unique combination of ancient customs and exclusive treatments has now been devised. The wellness centre, which covers an area of 3000 m2, includes an indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, saunas, steam baths, relaxation zones, whirlpool, aroma grotto, rooms for meditations and massage, water beds and a fitness hall. The guests are offered a wide palette of treatments and massages, including the ayurvedic one, as well as special programmes of facial and body care treatments.
