Rubin Sunny Hotel by Valamar

Highlights at the Rubin Sunny Hotel by Valamar include a close-to-it-all location and long list of activities.

The big swimming pool outside is anchored in a sun-trap terrace. Plenty of loungers and parasols mean it’s easy to relax, and when you get peckish, a bar deals out drinks and snacks. A separate splash zone keeps kids entertained, and if you fancy a day by the sea, just stroll through the hotel’s grounds.

Big buffet spreads are plated up in the main restaurant. You can watch the chefs work at show-cooking stations and themed dinners are served twice a week. For a little extra, you can dine in the seafront a la carte.

Overview of Porec

Although holidays to the Istrian Riviera have only recently become popular with British holidaymakers, Porec’s making a big splash. It’s easy to see why, too – it provides holidaymakers with an excellent mix of activities to take part in, stunning architecture to snap and bustling nightlife to enjoy.

The history of the town dates 3,000 years. Previously conquered by the Romans and the Venetians, Porec’s old town still contains monuments from the past. But, it’s a town that expertly blends old and new, so cosmopolitan hotels like the Rubin Sunny Hotel by Valamar sit effortlessly alongside Unesco World Heritage sites.

Things to do in Porec

The Rubin Sunny Hotel by Valamar is hidden in a forest of sweet-smelling pine trees just behind the seafront.

Porec is within walking distance, and a 10-minute stroll through the beautiful woodlands will land you in the centre of town. Architectural splendours are everywhere you look but the Episcopal Complex of Euphrasian Basilica is a real highlight. Most holidaymakers start their cultural tour on Decumanus Street before continuing to Trg Marafor Square.

Once you’ve finished exploring the old town, head to the diving centre on the front or take the family to the modern water park. There’s so much to see and do in Porec, you’ll never want to leave!
