Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with Katarina Line d.o.o. to open Keight Hotel Opatija, Curio Collection by Hilton.

Expected to begin welcoming guests in 2024, the 54-room hotel will be Curio Collection by Hilton’s first property in Croatia and the latest in a series of openings and signings of hotels in resort locations under the brand in Europe.

The hotel will be operated by Zagreb City Hotels d.o.o., which currently operates three Hilton branded hotels in Croatia: Canopy by Hilton Zagreb City Centre, DoubleTree by Hilton Zagreb, and Hilton Garden Inn Zagreb – Radnicka.

“We’re thrilled to work with Hilton to introduce the Curio Collection by Hilton brand to the Croatian market,” said Katica Hauptfeld, Katarina Line d.o.o. “Opatija is a fantastic all-year-round destination and famous Riviera, the cradle of Croatian tourism with the first hotel built in early 1884. This newly developed property combines the amenities guests can expect of an upscale Hilton brand in a central location in the heart of the town. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests next year.”

The property will feature:

  • a rooftop sundeck with swimming pool and bar that will the red-tiled roofs of the town center’s 19th-century buildings;
  • a second bar and restaurant on the ground floor that will allow guests to choose between alfresco dining on the rooftop and casual indoor meals;
  • floor-to-ceiling windows, low furnishings and plants throughout the public spaces which blur the barrier between indoors and out;
  • a hotel spa with a second swimming pool;
  • and a 1,075-square-foot multi-purpose meeting space.

Located in the heart of Opatija, Keight Hotel Opatija, Curio Collection by Hilton will be less than a two-minute walk from the sea. It is near to parks, restaurants, bars, and retail stores as well as the Franz Jozef Lungomare, Opatija’s seafront promenade.

In addition to beaches, the resort town of Opatija also has many spas and well-being facilities making it a haven for wellness enthusiasts.
