Isabella Valamar Collection Island Resort

The Isabella Valamar Collection Island Resort is the perfect blend of laidback and lively. It’s on the secluded island of St Nikola but you’re a quick hop across the water from the mainland.

The tree-covered island has a real castaway feel. You’ll find plenty of spots for sunbathing, including sandy swathes that look across to the mainland.

At the centre of the hotel, the activity pool has a sun terrace overlooking Porec’s old town – and the saltwater pool with an infinity edge is fantastic.

For meals, a buffet restaurant serves international cuisine and you can get snacks at the grill and bistro. There’s also a fine dining restaurant with an a la carte menu.

The idea of a holiday to the Istrian Riviera, on the beautiful north coast of Croatia, is relatively new to many. But it’s easy to see why the area has become incredibly popular so quickly. It has a dazzling 150-mile coastline, national parks and rustic villages.

The town of Porec is one of the most popular destinations on the Istrian Riviera. It has an excellent mix of holiday activities, from stunning architecture to bustling nightlife. There’s even a pretty marina where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Things to do in Porec

The Isabella Valamar Collection Island Resort is on a tiny traffic-free island just off Porec’s mainland.

The small island of St Nikola has a sandy and pebble beach where you can relax and unwind, and you’re only a five-minute boat ride from Porec.

In the evening, Porec has a fabulous selection of restaurants. The cuisine is heavily influenced by Italian produce, so you’ll find something to suit every taste.

In Porec, old meets new. Architectural beauty sits alongside family-friendly fun. When you stay at the Isabella Valamar Collection Island Resort, you’re only a couple of minutes away.
