Each detail, from the rooms to the beach, has been crafted to provide guests with maximum comfort and ultimate pleasure. A memorable gastronomic experience awaits in the world-class fine-dining Alfred Keller Restaurant, where each course is accompanied by sommelier-selected wines from an extensive cellar and featured in the renowned Gault Millau guide. For those seeking a revitalising break on the “Island of Vitality”, the Cube Spa is designed to restore balance and harmony between the mind and body with treatments inspired by the local flora and the mineral rich Adriatic Sea, all delivered by an extraordinary team of specialists and skilled therapists. Just a few steps down from the promenade leads to the Villa’s private beach, with stylish sun loungers and parasols.
The villa is attended by its own team of staff, including a dedicated house manager; personal concierge; private chef; and a professional butler educated at famed The International Butler Academy in the Netherlands, providing an exemplary bespoke experience tailor-made to surpass guests’ desire.
A relatively undiscovered jewel to the north of Croatia, the intimate Adriatic island of Losinj is famed for its rich nature, counting more than 1,200 aromatic and healing herbs and more than 2,600 hours of sunshine every year. A step away from the tourist crowds courtesy of the short air or sea transfer from mainland Croatia, Losinj remains an unspoilt idyll for those seeking tranquilly and discretion.
