Surrounded by the fragrant Mediterranean forests of Rovinj, Croatia, Design Hotels™ member Hotel Lone sits majestically overlooking the shores of the Adriatic Sea.
In addition to an expansive pool area opened last summer, the hotel has now elevated its focus on the great Mediterranean open-air season with the launch of a beach club. Located steps away from the hotel, Mulini Beach is open daily, offering light bites, cocktails, sunbeds and sounds.
Designed by Croatian architects 3LHD – also responsible for the architecture of the hotel – Mulini Beach was constructed out of white concrete and natural stone, ensuring that it blends seamlessly into its surroundings. As the first man-made beach in Rovinj, the design firm adhered to a strong mandate to create an area that was in harmony with the area’s natural coastal beauty. Several sunbathing spaces and a promenade designed to look like a natural rock formation are dotted by Mediterranean vegetation, blending with the bordering Cape Horne Forest.
Being sure to bring elements of the hotel’s design to the newly added beach, Zagreb-based designer Lana Cavar imparted the same sleek and streamlined visual identity. Minimalist white sun loungers speckle the white stone with stained wood providing an organic aesthetic. The hotel’s commitment to its Croatian ties continue with textiles and staff uniforms designed by the talented duo of I-GLE, the same team responsible for the fiber arts seen throughout the 248-room property.
