Malinska on the island of Krk
Hotel Riu Blue Waves – a new attraction for visitors

Although only recently opened, the Hotel Riu Blue Waves is already attracting much interest from visitors to the island of Krk. After only one month of business, the hotel is now fully booked until the end of summer!

The Hotel Riu Blue Waves, located in the famous resort of Malinska on the island of Krk, was opened on the 30th of May. Since then it has enjoyed a great occupancy rate, which will reach a maximum at the peak of the season, the end of August. The capacities of this hotel include 97 accommodation units – of these, 10 are rooms, and the rest are apartments. The hotel also has three bars and two restaurants. The à la carte restaurant offers mainly Croatian specialities, and the main restaurant, located right on the seafront, is open to both hotel guests and other visitors to the area.
The Riu Blue Waves hotel complex also includes a congress hall, wellness and fitness, and swimming pools for children and grown-ups.

This newly built property is one of the few greenfield investments in tourism on the Croatian Adriatic. Located directly by the sea, the value of the investment amounts to 22 million euros. In its first year of business, the hotel will only remain open during the season, until the beginning of November. In the future it should be open all year round.
