Situated just outside the picturesque town of Rovinj, Monte Mulini welcomes you with stunning views and a peaceful setting. This modern luxury hotel has 99 rooms that are spacious and each one has a balcony with a sea view. The hotel has a pebble beach, a seafront platform with loungers and a bar and outdoor pool. There are many ways to enjoy the beautiful setting. Monte Mulini also has a full service spa with a small indoor heated pool, sauna and treatment rooms. Monte Mulini has a sister hotel next door. With two large swimming pools, one inside and one outside and these are available for guests to use as they wish. The hotel also offers bicycles free of charge for guests to use for a ride into town or the nearby woodland park. The hotel has two restaurants, one that offers food all day and one located in the cellar that offers another option for dinner. The lobby bar and terrace give you the perfect place to relax at the end of the day and sometimes the bar has live music. Monte Mulini is a 15 minute walk to town or an easy bike ride or taxi ride. There is currently another hotel under construction between Monte Mulini and the town which blocks the seaside walking path but it is easy to walk through the local neighbourhood to get into Rovinj. The new hotel will be finished in early 2019. Overall, I felt that Monte Mulini was a good base for exploring Istria and a nice stop on a northern Croatia itinerary.
