The long history of health tourism on the Kvarner riviera

Why Kvarner?

Do you agree that the sea and the scent of salt in the air relax our body and mind in a special way? 

Tourism in the Kvarner area started to develop in the second half of the 19 th century in the climatic health resorts of Opatija, Crikvenica, Veli Lošinj, Rab and in the area of Gorski Kotar. Due to its attractive vegetation and mild climate, and the combination of the sea and the mountainous hinterland, Kvarner has always been considered an ideal destination for nature lovers and guests in search of relaxation.

In the 19th century, Opatija became the first Croatian tourist destination with sanatoriums, which attracted the European elite because of the town's ideal geographical location on the Adriatic shore at the foot of Mount Učka. Today the town is home to a series of specialised dental, cosmetic surgery and orthopaedic clinics, as well as a wide-ranging offer of increasingly popular wellness facilities. Many hotels in Opatija have wellness centres that are decorated in a special way to offer satisfaction for all the senses. Let us recommend some of them.


Wellness centres in Opatija's hotels

The wellness centres of the Remisens Hotel offer exclusive treatments that combine natural products with the beneficial effects of the vegetation and climate of this area. Guests can enjoy the superb massages and beauty treatments offered by the specialised teams in the Remisens Premium Hotel Ambasador and Remisens Hotel Marina. These are based on the Five Elements philosophy. Continuing this concept, the Five Elements Wellness & Spa of the Remisens Hotel Excelsior is dedicated to the element of wood. It offers specially designed treatments with laurel and other local plants which have beneficial effects. Apart from the relax zone and a wide choice of massages, the Remisens Premium Grand Hotel Palace also has Finnish and Turkish saunas, which on colder days provide excellent body detoxification.
