Valamar Riviera to invest HRK 500 mln in two luxury resorts in Rabac

The Valamar Riviera hotel company will this autumn launch the construction of two luxury resorts in Rabac in Kvarner Bay, Istria, and the resorts - the Family Life Bellevue Resort and the Valamar Girandella Resort - estimated at HRK 500 million, will be opened at the start of the 2017 tourist season.

"The summer resorts, to be in the four-star category, will make Rabac a leading high-quality resort destination, and they will create more than 300 jobs, which will boost local economic development," says a statement from Valamar Riviera, one of the leading tourism companies and most active investors in the sector of tourism.

The company plans to turn the Bellevue and Albona hotels in Rabac into the Family Life Bellevue Resort with 372 rooms. Valamar Riviera and TUI, one of the world's leading tour operators, have already signed an agreement that will make the new resort the first TUI Family Life brand in Croatia.

"Apart from new rooms, the Family Life Bellevue Resort will have swimming pools, restaurants, beaches, entertainment and other amenities with service quality meeting TUI standards. TUI plans to bring around 80,000 guests to the resort, mostly from Scandinavia and Great Britain,which will result in more than 400,000 nights," Valamar Riviera said.

The second project, the Valamar Girandella Resort, refers to the renovation of the resort's three pavilions, the main building and its restaurant, and three villas. After the renovation, the Valamar Girandella Resort will have 399 accommodation units.
