Postcard views, contemporary design, and a blissful waterfront location. The Grand Park Hotel Rovinj by Maistra Collection is harmoniously situated on Rovinj’s eastern shore, offering remarkable vistas of its old town and a revitalising wellness & spa experience. With the sumptuous minimalism of 209 luxurious rooms and suites, designed by the renowned Italian architect Piero Lissoni and 3LHD Studio, this is where the sea, the fragrant Golden Cape forest park and the beautiful town of Rovinj come together.

On the grounds of the hotel connected to the marina, guests can shop in exclusive boutiques and dine in a collection of restaurants. The hotel offers the Albaro Wellness & Spa that reveals the secrets of Istrian wellness. Occupying 3,800 square meters, it is the biggest center of its kind in Istria. The picture-perfect, vibrant Old town of Rovinj and the century-old forest park are only steps away.

Grand Park Hotel Rovinj is also a gourmet dining destination that’s home to seven restaurant and bar concepts, including a Michelin Star. Possessor of a Michelin Star, Italian chef Emanuele Scarello revels in a playful menu served against a backdrop of the Adriatic Sea in Agli Amici Rovinj. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy Italian dishes slightly different from classic Mediterranean cuisine, prepared with local and seasonal ingredients. The hotels other restaurants provide cuisine from around the world, all served to similarly high standards.

Less than three months after the opening, Agli Amici Rovinj was awarded with its first star in MICHELIN Guide Croatia. The restaurant offers guests a unique and unforgettable gourmet experience. This unique, sophisticated, and elegant spot is located alongside the gorgeous promenade connecting the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj and the marina, where its picturesque terrace offers a direct panorama of the sea and the old town of Rovinj.

Chef Emanuele Scarello designed two tasting menus - Agli Amici and Istra. Both menus bear Scarello's distinctive signature – ingenuous cuisine, sophisticated simplicity, and strong personality. Each and every dish is bursting with flavour-filled stories of the centuries-old Italian tradition meeting the specific aromas of Istria and the local coastline, the sea, the earth, and all its many fruits. Located amidst renowned Croatian wineries, Agli Amici Rovinj unveils a delightful surprise with its meticulous selection of sommeliers and wine recommendations, promising to awaken a sense of wonder and delight.

"At this restaurant overseen by Emanuele Scarello from Italian two-starred Agli Amici in Udine, chef Lorenzo Lai has now passed the baton to Simone De Lucca who has been part of the team here since the summer of 2022. The beautiful cube-shaped restaurant stands on the stylish seafront promenade in Rovinj’s modern marina – a delightful place to eat with a large terrace and stunning views of the azure coast and its verdant islets. At nightfall, the illuminated church of Sant’Eufemia adds even more charm to the setting. Two tasting menus: Agli Amici (lands and sea flavors from Udine to Rovinj) and Istria, while the restaurant’s iconic dishes include langoustine, spaghetti with sea herbs, and grilled beef with almonds. Kristijan is on hand front of house with an excellent selection of Croatian wines (including by the glass), such as fragrant Istrian Malvasia, Dalmatian reds and sparkling wines from the Plešivica region that are perfect as an aperitif."
