[PHOTOS] First Hyatt Hotel in Croatia to Open in Zadar



Hyatt Regency Zadar Maraska will look like this once it is complete

Dogus Croatia and Hyatt Hotels Corporation are opening the first hotel under the Hyatt brand in Croatia in Zadar on the Dalmatian coast…

The 5-star Hyatt Regency Zadar Maraska, the first hotel in Croatia under the Hyatt brand, is set to open in the spring of 2019. As well as the hotel, Dogus will build 115 luxury apartments as well as exclusive shops, restaurants, cafes, clubs and a children’s area at the complex.


Hyatt Regency Zadar Maraska will be located at the former Maraska drinks factory in Zadar and will be based on the design of Slovene-Italian architect Boris Podrecca. The design combines both historic and modern architecture.


The 130-luxury room hotel will also have one of the top spa and wellness centres in Croatia as well as swimming pool, bars, conference centre and more.


“Wishing to emphasize the monumentality and beauty of the old Maraska building, the new structure we split into two connected parts, thus creating a Mediterranean Tripartita. Also, since the hotel is adjacent to the park, we wanted it to fit with the existing environment and we have designed the terraced landscaped part, a transition between the architectural structure and the surrounding greenery we achieved a glass vault in which is part of the restaurant with an indoor garden and pool”, Podrecca said.


British hotel interior design specialists DeSallesFlint will take care of the hotel’s interior design. The project is worth around 100 million euros and is set to be complete in 3 years.
