Construction Underway on Largest Hotel in Split

Amfora Resort Split (Simulation)

Construction is in full swing for what will be the largest city hotel in the Dalmatian city of Split.

Amfora Resort, which will be nestled on the tree-lined coastline in Znjan, is set to open to guests in the spring of 2019.

The 4-star hotel will have 207 rooms, a 500-square metre congress hall, restaurants, cafes and all accompanying facilities for a top category hotel.

Amfora Resort will also have a 1,500-square metre wellness centre complete with three swimming pools, one of which will be able to be closed by a glass wall in the winter. The other two swimming pools will be outdoor with a glass facade facing the sea.

75 percent of the hotel will have rooms with a balcony overlooking the sea.

The hotel will accommodate over 500 guests, more than all the other hotels currently operating in Split, Zvonko Kotarac told daily Slobodna Dalmacija.

A further 27 residential apartments will be built alongside the hotel and will be connected by a corridor with the main hotel building.

The total investment in both facilities is around 26 million euros, with the hotel will employing 80 full-time employees, and an extra 40 during the main season.

A collection of over 30 amphorae which have been preserved will be displayed at the hotel. The amphorae are between 1,800 – 2,500 years old and are so valuable that they are now the property of the Republic of Croatia as a cultural good.
