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.
