Opatija
Wellness Open Days Programme

March in Opatija is traditionally dedicated to the Open Days Programme in the town's wellness centres. This year's attractive programme has been designed to recall the time when Opatija was first declared a health resort back in 1889.

Opatija was officially declared a health resort in March 1889. This is why this month has been chosen for the traditional Wellness Open Days programme, which includes all Opatija's hotels with wellness centers. These are Grand Hotel Adriatic, Hotel Bristol, Hotel Milenij, Hotel Mozart, Grand Hotel 4 opatijska cvijeta, Thalasso Wellness Centre Opatija, Hotel Ambasador, Hotel Kristal, and Hotel Admiral. In addition to the classical offer of wellness services, this year the hotels are preparing some special surprises for the visitors. Some programmes will be based on the details from the history that made Opatija so popular at the end of the 19th century. Even before being officially declared a health resort, Opatija has long been a favourite meeting place of European nobility, aristocracy, artists and many famous personalities. The Austrian empress and the Croatian-Hungarian queen Sissi, one of the most beautiful and smartest women of that period, became a symbol of the newly refurbished wellness centre in Opatija's Hotel Milenij. This is why the offer in this centre within the Wellness Open Days programme will also be related to this historic personality, and will include treatments named after her: Sissy detox and detox de Luxe treatments offer beneficial massages and removal of toxins from the body.
Each hotel will offer something special, and the visitors will have the chance to chose among numerous beauty treatments, massages and other body treatments, attractive yoga courses, dance workshops, interactive lectures aimed at defeating stress, healing mud baths, saunas, sport relax and fitness programmes, programmes of aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and thalassotherapy, and much more. The event will also include package holidays at special prices, programmes aimed at couples, special programmes for her and for him, and a series of other attractive benefits.
