An Inside Look At The Grand Hotel Brioni Pula in Croatia

I have never been to Croatia before, but when Outlook festival used to be held in Pula, I would be green with envy from all of my friends insanely beautiful and vibrant pictures. Pula felt like a hidden gem waiting to be explored, and my recent visit there did not disappoint at all.

Where better to stay in Pula than the recently opened and extensively refurbished Grand Hotel Brioni Pula. This hotel may seem brand spanking new, and certainly every last detail is on point and of the highest finish. But actually, it’s a reincarnation of a famous hotel frequented by A-listers of the past. Think Abba and Boney M to name a few. And judging by the exquisite interiors and fantastic location perched on the edge of the sea, it's safe to say the A-lister trend will continue.

You may not know, but Pula shares an incredible amount of history with Italy. The town itself is scattered with Ancient Roman ruins, and medieval buildings from the time of the Venetian Republic. And to this day many locals still speak Italian. So it seems only fitting that the hotel aesthetic has been inspired by Italy with a modern take on ancient antiquity. It has all the charm and features of the Amalfi coast but with the warmth and luxury of the Istrian Peninsula. And when I say this hotel is luxurious, just imagine entering your stunning room and finding it stocked with Acqua di Parma toiletries. IKR!?

Pula town is a vibrant place where there is always something going on. Whether it's a wine or film festival, there's plenty to keep you occupied. So if you’ve had a jam packed day seeing the sights and enjoying the festivities, thankfully Grand Hotel Brioni Pula is a relaxing retreat from the buzz of the town. The sophisticated spa facilities are out of this world, and include state of the art sauna and steam rooms, a relaxation room with refreshments and a salt wall, a walk through shower experience, modern gym facilities and off course numerous treatment rooms where you can indulge in one of their many immersive massages. And after all that, you can spend the rest of the day relaxing by the picturesque infinity pool, or take a dip in the sea via the hotels private beach. Don’t forget to try and spot the pod of dolphins while you're there. It's a sight not to be missed.

No stone is left unturned here, and the service will leave you feeling like an A-lister yourself. Especially with free flowing Champagne to accompany your breakfast – nothing could be more fancy than breakfast bubbles right? And let's not forget the sensational food options from a choice of 3 restaurants, and the numerous bars for a memorable cocktail with a view after dinner. The sunset from the Brioni Lobby Bar is gorgeous and will inevitably have you spamming your friends and family with constant sunset posts.

Satisfaction is an understatement with this hotel. From the food to the views, and the spa to the rooms, I certainly took this moment to holiday like a celebrity. Look out Pula, because I will be coming back!
