N E I G H B O R H O O D Pines, Palms & Crystal Water
A stay at the 51-room Boutique Hotel Alhambra seemingly suspends all time and space. Situated on tranquil Cikat Bay and surrounded by pine forest, this lavishly refurbished 1912 residence on Lošinj Island - once a favorite royal retreat - spares no expense in creating one of
Croatia's most bespoke experiences. Walls of glass, clean lines, concept lighting and contemporary décor add a modern sensibility to its ageless grandeur, perhaps best appreciated from
under a parasol on the private beach or on the restaurant's terrace while enjoying a themed
gastronomic experience and one of the area's finest cellars.
Welcome drink and 50-minute massage for
two, once per stay.
Lošinj is known as the "island of vitality,"
and the moniker rings true for the spa, which
utilizes many of the 1,200 aromatic herbs
that grow here. Better still, indulge in a
massage en suite.
