The clue’s in the title at the intimate XII Century Heritage Hotel located on the waterfront in Trogir’s pedestrianised Riva area. It is also the ideal choice for those looking to explore the perfectly preserved town.
Brown Beach House Croatia
Brown Beach House is part of the Brown Hotels portfolio of fashionable boutique properties, and the focus on stylish modern decor is evident the moment you enter the reception area. Interior designer Saar Zafrir has created a luxurious yet laid-back atmosphere with potted palms and olive trees, mid-century modern furniture, and a mix of contemporary and traditional decorative details within the white stone exterior. The hotel’s 42 rooms are well thought out, with plenty of space and top-level comfort. Designed to be more than a place to sleep, the hotel offers several spaces for relaxation, with poolside terraces, a spa and beach club, as well as a glamorous indoor lounge with piano bar. The hotel’s Cartina Restaurant is frequented by guests and locals alike, and is popular for its innovative menu and high-quality ingredients.
Beyond the hotel’s idyllic beachfront location, the historic sites of Trogir are easily accessed on foot.
