Welcome To Croatia's Newest Beach, At Rovinj's Hotel Lone
Nothing says summer like a beach club – at least, that’s what Hotel Lone in Croatia thinks. A trendy hotel (it’s a member of Design Hotels) in Rovinj, the Lone opened its pool area last summer, and has now launched a club, Mulini Beach, to join it.
As you’d expect from the kind of joint that has a concept store selling the work of local artists, it ain’t your bog standard beach club. Instead, there’s almost a lido feel to it, with a white stone and concrete platform arcing out into the water, surrounding a manmade pebble beach – the first in Rovinj, no less (not that Croatia exactly needs manmade beaches, having one of the greatest coastlines in Europe).
The club was designed by the hotel’s architects, and is apparently “designed to look like a natural rock formation”. Maybe in a Monet sense (from far off) – we actually like its stark slickness.
Mulini Beach promises “light bites, cocktails, sunbeds and sounds” at its 50-seater bar. No word of crazy Vegas-style beach parties yet – and that can only be a good thing.
Hotel Lone guests get free access to the beach club from 10am-11pm daily. Rooms start at an entirely reasonable €115 ($156). Mulini Beach already has its own Facebook page, by the way, and it's looking good.
