The most beautiful corners of the Slovenian coast for the most beautiful memories
The St. Bernardin Resort in Portorož, the San Simon Resort in Izola, and
the Salinera Resort in Strunjan are situated in some of the most beautiful
parts of the Slovenian coast, trimmed with oleander shrubs, palm trees,
rosemary and laurel bushes, and just a step away from the sea. To offer you new experiences and an even more unforgettable stay, we have
recently refurbished the Grand Hotel Bernardin, the Hotel Histrion and Villa
Galeja in the Hotel Vile Park in Portorož. The shopping promenade (Trgovska ulica) has also
been given a new, refreshed look, and the Grand Café at the St. Bernardin
Resort in Portorož will soon receive a refreshed look. We have also renovated
Hotel Haliaetum and the Depandance Sirena at the San Simon Resort in Izola, and
the Salinera Apartments at the Salinera Resort in Strunjan. All this to make your holiday close to home with
unparalleled views of the blue Slovenian sea even more enjoyable!
ST. BERNARDIN RESORT
The Grand Hotel Bernardin refurbishment
Late April 2018 saw the completion of the EUR 5.4 million refurbishment
of the Grand Hotel Bernardin rooms. The refurbished rooms, each featuring a bathroom and a balcony, now have
a modern interior with a functional layout and unobstructed views of the sea.
The unparalleled sea view from each room is the unique advantage of the Grand
Hotel Bernardin that no other hotel can compete with. It
was also the inspiration behind the minimalist interior design, with warm
colours and sophisticated gold highlights reminiscent of the glittering
reflection of the sun on the sea. The main decorative element in
each room is the view of the endless blue sea. In addition to the modern interior design, the rooms also feature
all-new floor and wall coverings, as well as new plumbing and electrical
fittings. To conserve energy, remote controls have been
provided for various functions in the rooms.

balconies, and fittings, the Sea Park Termaris, and the Benedicta Wellness
There are now more
interconnected rooms available on the 3rd floor, which is particularly important
for guests with families. The rooms have been
redesigned to suit the needs of holiday guests, and furnished with high-quality
modern materials. The functional interior design concept is based on the story
of Istria, including elements
of stone, wood, and traditional Istrian wooden shutters (škure). As part of the refurbishment, the hotel
reception, bar, main restaurant, and hallways were also given a fresh look. On top of that, we have updated the fire safety
system, including the emergency exits, and the fire escape staircases and

the main restaurant in 1998, the Laguna Bernardin Sea Park and the Hotel
Histrion rooms on the first floor in 1999, the remaining two hotel floors in
2002, and the Laguna Wellness Centre in 2003. In 2007, the façade was repainted,
and the area around the hotel was given a more modern look.
The Hotel Vile Park refurbishment
In the first half of 2022, we renovated 66 Premium 3*
rooms in Villa Galeja and their outdoor swimming pool. The renovation of the
rooms has been inspired by the story of a complete Istria experience, the scent
of lavender, the feel of the sea, and the shelter of olive groves. This
will continue the story of experiencing Istria – Istriana, which we started
writing with the renovation of Hotel Histrion.
Hotel Vile Park and the beach are connected by a renovated outdoor swimming
pool with new fun water playsets that cater to even the youngest guests. All
guests of Hotel Vile Park will also enjoy breakfast and dinner in the brand new
Arcade restaurant with sea views.
The renovation of the other villas will continue gradually, so that Hotel Vile
Park, together with Hotel Histrion, will become part of Istriana, a sustainable
family resort by the sea.
