Hotel Alhambra, Lošinj
Boutique Hotel Alhambra, member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is located in the beautiful Čikat Bay, in an idyllic fragrant forest adjacent to the sea, protected from the winds by pine, agave and palm trees. The Boutique Hotel Alhambra consists of two villas– Alhambra and Augusta, and a new modern part of the hotel.
Alhambra was built in the style of a Mediterranean villa with a modern, simple facade that exquisitely blends with the surroundings. Alfred Keller, a prominent architect from Vienna, designed the building in 1912 inspired by Spanish architecture. Even 100 years ago, Alhambra was an example of a luxurious and superiorly equipped hotel. Adjacent to Alhambra is Villa Augusta which was built in 1908 in the Secession style. With its facade lavishly decorated with stucco work, balconies with filigree railings and a beautifully shaped garden, it certainly deserves its name – Augusta – meaning divine. Connecting both villas is the new part of the hotel and the facade blends in with the forest harmoniously joining the antique buildings.
The private beach provides a perfect place to relax in the sunshine from early spring to late autumn. Renowned French restaurant guide Gault & Millau included the premium à la carte Restaurant Alfred Keller at the Boutique Hotel Alhambra on the list of the best restaurants for 2017.
