The British Times has ranked Croatia among the most popular destinations for the next decade
The British Times has recently ranked Croatia as one of the 10 world destinations to get away from your everyday life in style in the upcoming decade. Croatia is joined by London, Paris, Berlin, Sicily, Greece, Switzerland, New York, Canada, Cuba, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, the Dominican Republic, Zanzibar, Sri lanka, India, Puerto Rico, Lebanon, Peru, Abu dabi, Cambodia and Fiji. Describing Croatia, author Susan d’Arcy says the Adriatic islands have become unbelievably trendy and popular and the northern peninsula Istria is described as the new Tuscany.

The article particularly praises Istria, its cypress slopes and „cute“ towns on top of hills. The author points out the Pula boutique hotel Valsabbion, the Villa Annette in Rabac and the Rovinj hotel Monte Mullini as the pioneers of the new style. The author also points out that Ryanair provides flights to Pula.

Hotel Valsabbion is located in a sandy cove near Pula, 12 kilometres from the Pula airport. It features 10 rooms in four categories (premier, family, superior i classic), medical spa offering aesthetic medicine, a pool and a fitness area. However, the hotel is mostly known for its incredibly famous restaurant, which has been awarded by eminent international culinary guides as one of the best Croatian restaurants for the last couple of years.

Vila Annette in Rabac is located in a protected part of the slopes overlooking the Rabac cove, providing an incredible panoramic view of that part of Kvarner and the islands Cres, Lošinj and Unije. The Villa features three suites –classic, comfort and family, a top-notch restaurant, outdoor pool and Mediterranean garden.

The Rovinj hotel Monte Mullini, with its 99 rooms and 14 suites, offers the comfort of home in an atmosphere of exclusivity and luxury. All rooms and suites provide a beautiful panoramic view of the sea and a picturesque bay surrounded by the greenery of the protected park forest Zlatni rt. The hotel comprises a wellness centre on three storeys, a combination of Mediterranean atmosphere, art and design, and two restaurants, Wine Vault and Mediterraneo. The first offers its guests a wine and culinary experience, combining traditional French cuisine and a rich wine card with over 550 different wines from Croatia and the entire world. The latter brings to Rovinj specialties inspired by the cuisine of Greece, Spain, Lebanon, and northern Africa.
