Best Bits for Kids

Friendly hotel staff run a kids club for ages 4 to 12, and there’s a dedicated children’s pool. In the local area, you’ll find calm beaches, a waterpark, a playground and a skate park, where the kids can stretch their legs.  A non-alcoholic cocktail from the pool bar will be a welcome refreshment.

Best Bits for Parents

If the kids are feeling restless, skip the sit-down breakfast and head to the lobby’s Grab & Run takeaway table.  Take advantage of a free late check-out time – as late as 6pm – before evening flights. While the little ones are at the kids club, savour a couples massage, sip on a cocktail at one of the outdoor bars, or stroll round the on-site retail shop.

Best Family Beaches

The hotel beach is convenient and safe for children, whilst being quieter than some of the public beaches. But if you want to adventure further afield, Bačvice is a sand and shingle beach with a shallow bay, popular with local families.

Check in information

You can check-out as late as 6pm to accommodate evening travellers. Express Checkout gives you the option to receive an invoice by email, post or quick pick-up at the reception desk to minimise travel stress.

Digital Detox / Digital Overload

With free WiFi throughout the resort, you can stay connected at all times. TVs are in all bedrooms. But with the beaches, pools, and excursions available, you might be too busy to notice!

Fitness Centre

The on-site gym is equipped with both cardio and strength machines, free weights, and professionally certified fitness instructors. LCD televisions and Technogym equipment help to make those harder sets a little bit easier. Access to the centre is free.

Food & Drink

The Fig Leaf:

If you prefer to have full control over what’s on your plate (or if you’re the parent of a fussy eater), The Fig Leaf is the place to eat. Start the day with the Super Breakfast Buffet, featuring an array of delights from across the world. Kids and adults alike will love creating their own omelettes in collaboration with the chef. The buffet-style dining continues during dinner, meaning you can enjoy the freedom to design your meals, as the sun sets over the al fresco dining area.

The Caper Grill:

A romantic sit-down restaurant with sea views, propped on an open-air terrace – but it isn’t just for adults! Alongside a zesty seafood linguini and a Croatian tenderloin steak, the special Kids Corner menu offers mini-size chicken and pasta dishes.

The Mistral Restaurant:

For lunch, The Mistral Restaurant provides a beachside setting to sit down and grab a bite, all while listening to the waves lapping against the shore. From fresh fish to a mozzarella and tomato sandwich slathered with homemade pesto, there’s plenty to satisfy your afternoon cravings.

Room service:

Room service is available at the push of the button with the One Touch Service on all room telephones.

Getting There

Split Airport is around 30 minutes away by car. The hotel can arrange transfers to and from the airport.

Hotel Shop

An retail shop is on site, as well as an area of the spa that sells ELEMIS cosmetic products.

Hotel Vibe

Modern and elegant, a generous use of glass and clean colours creates a stylish feel. The resort is bright and spacious with high ceilings and wide outdoor spaces.

Location

The resort itself sits in a residential neighbourhood, on the coast overlooking the aquamarine waters of the Adriatic Sea. Around 3km from the centre and a 30-minute stroll from the charming Old Town, the historic and bustling city of Split is close enough to be explored, but far away enough to provide a quiet hotel experience. For a change of scenery, the unspoiled island of Brac is just a 15km boat trip from Split, and offers a glimpse of authentic Croatian life.

Perfect For

  • Families looking for a clean, uncomplicated seaside getaway with the option to explore outside of the complex
  • Everything you need is on-site, making it a convenient choice for families needing to relax

Pools

Both indoor and outdoor pools provide lazy waters to float or splash about in. A kids’ pool ripples just a stone’s throw away from the main pool, so the little ones can paddle in the shallows while you lay back with peace of mind.

Rooms

Colour-coded by floor, room themes vary from ‘lavender’ to ‘olive’, each with a soothing Mediterranean feel. Choose between a sea or city view – whichever you prefer, both provide a picturesque backdrop for enjoying a minibar beverage on the balcony.

Spa & Pampering for Adults

Home to the largest spa in the city, Radison BLU is a haven for tired parents looking to relax. With Finnish saunas, hydrotherapy and Japenese Onsen pools, private treatment rooms and yoga rooms, you’ll be spoiled for choice! Treat yourself to a massage while the scents of native Dalmatian herbs drift through the room.

Sports

There are water sports available such as kayaking and paddle boarding as well as a fully equipped diving centre, all for an additional charge. Specially designed ‘BluRoutes’ give active families the opportunity to cycle, run and walk along safe trails that begin and end at the hotel.

Things to do in the area

The region is trimmed with both sandy and pebbled beaches, with gently sloping shores that are perfect for young children. Split is home to a budding gastronomic scene, hosting traditional restaurants and food markets glowing with vibrant produce. History fans can discover the past at Diocletian’s Palace, the City Museum, or Klis Fortress – a location featured in Game of Thrones.
