Kempinski Hotel Adriatic Istria to Welcome American Guests This Summer


“Yes, Americans are able to have that longed-for five-star summer in Europe after all," Kempinski said in a press release announcing its Istria, Croatia property will be open to American guests this summer. Although Croatia is a member of the European Union, it has announced it is welcoming American visitors with advance vacation hotel reservations.

The 186-room Kempinski Hotel Adriatic Istria combines ultra-modern architecture with the traditional atmosphere of Croatia's region of Istria. It’s located on the shore of the Adriatic Sea, offering indoor and outdoor dining, a beachfront entry into the sea, two pools, the 30,000-square-foot Carolea Spa and an 18-hole golf course designed by Diethard Fahrenleitner.

Nearby attractions include picturesque villages well-suited for strolls and exploring; Motovun Forest, known for its massive truffles; and Pula's 1st-century amphitheater.

Safety First: On arrival in Croatia, American passport-holders must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 48 hours. At the hotel, extensive steps have been taken to guarantee social distancing and a range of safety and hygiene protocols. Kempinski's exclusive "White Glove Service" was developed in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic for its 77 hotels worldwide.

Getting There: Direct connections are available from the U.S. to Zagreb, Croatia's capital, on a variety of airlines, including American, Delta and United, as well as Air France, British Airways, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines and more.
