Modern elegance at a refurbished, adults-only Croatia hotel close to the Old Town on Rab Island - includes breakfast, dinner and optional Adriatic views

The magical isle of Rab off mainland Croatia (home to the enchanting medieval town of the same name) brims with historic architectural gems, one such being the adults-only Valamar Imperial Hotel. This grand building makes its mark with a bold pink-coloured, pillared facade, overlooking the exotic town park planted with palm trees and luxuriant foliage. Purpose-built as one of the first hotels on the island back in the 1920s, it boasts an illustrious past that includes playing host to none other than King Edward VIII and American socialite Wallis Simpson.

Guests today are treated like royalty from the moment they set foot in this refurbished hotel that has certainly moved with the times. This year sees smart additions such as a first-class restaurant, sparkling Gin Bar and sleek guest rooms. Elsewhere, the impressive range of facilities includes a sublime free-form pool backed by luxury loungers, tennis courts, and a delicious Mediterranean-inspired spa.

You'll find many ways to keep as busy - or as relaxed - as you like on this island. Sun yourself on one of Rab’s many pretty beaches, go for a spin on a bicycle to discover the island's charms at your own pace, or wander the crooked alleyways and squares of Rab Town. Suitably sated, enjoy a varied evening entertainment programme back at the hotel.
