5 April 2019 – Hotel Omorika and Hotel Ad Turres in Crikvenica on Croatia’s northern coast are undergoing major refurbishments ahead of the 2019 tourist season, the management company announced.
Works are nearly complete with all 115 rooms at Hotel Omorika, which is located about 2 km from the centre of Crikvenica, being refurbished.
The hotel was built in 1973 and got its name from a protected endemic tree “Omorika” that was discovered by botanist Dr. Josip Pančić, who was born is this area, in Bribir. The tree was discovered in 1855 and is considered a living fossil as it dates back to the Tertiary period. A statue to honour botanist Pančić was placed in front of the hotel.
“Preparations for the new season are in full swing and we want to take advantage of the time available to us to redefine and refurbish as many of our facilities as possible”, said the CEO of Jadran d.d. Goran Fabris, who took over the company’s management last year. “Where we stop with refurbishments, we will continue again in the fall because we want to be among the leading hotel-tourism companies on the Adriatic.”
Located at the entrance of Crikvenica, near the main motorway and surrounded by beautiful pine forests, Ad Turres is renovating its 13 pavilions which in total has a 700-person capacity. The new modern and economic accommodation is designed for large tourist groups.
Jadran have invested 130 million kuna in refurbishing facilities in Crikvenica and Selce with investment planned next year, Vecernji list reported.
