Hotel Bastion melds a multicultural past with the modern allure of the Dalmatian Coast. Located in the coastal town of Zadar, the hotel is a great base for exploring the Adriatic.
A stay at Hotel Bastion will take you back in time. Located in the center of the town Zadar, this property was built on the remnants of a 13th-century medieval fortress. The 28 cozy rooms feature stunning harbor views of the sparkling water and the hilly islands beyond. Watch the yachts elegantly glide through the Adriatic Sea under bright, blue skies. Large mirrors reflect the natural light, gilded cabinets offer sophisticated storage space, and velvet furniture with nailheads create an air of opulence. Tufted headboards are found in a range of colors and add a vibrant accent to each room. Exposed stone walls hint at the history of this property.
Seafood is a staple at the Kastel restaurant, along with delicious pastas and freshly baked breads that are common in Mediterranean cuisine. The coastal area of Croatia is known for its ample sunshine, and the terrace is the best place to enjoy the warmth under the shade of the umbrellas. Dine alfresco next to Venetian-era cannons that still stand on the property. Coffee and cocktails are enjoyed in the Kristal bar, an intimate space to chat with friends.
Zadar is a port town that exhibits a blend of Roman remains alongside Venetian and Byzantine architecture. Wander through the 9th century Church of St. Donat and local museums to dive further into the history. Climb to the top of the 12th century cathedral to take in gorgeous coastal views. Stroll through the marble streets to the pretty markets and browse the handmade lace, and stop in the piazza to get a sense of what life was like here in the past.
After a day of exploring Zadar on foot, unwind at Hotel Bastion in the spa complete with Turkish sauna, foot baths, Jacuzzi, and massage services. The scent of incense wafts through the air and candles provide a relaxing aura. Treatments often use natural products like fruits and flowers, and pedicures and manicures are also offered to doll up for a night on the town.
