Europe’s First Rotating Hotel to Emerge in Croatia

The sea views from each hotel room, even from the ones that do not directly face the sea (at the given moment in time)? This will be possible in a rotating hotel that is to emerge on Šolta Island, near Split, Croatia. This beautiful Mediterranean island surrounded by turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea will soon become a splendid resort. The complex will comprise a new modern marina, villas, and guest pavilions.

Rotating hotel’s masterplan

The jewel of the new resort will be a rotating hotel designed by Richard Hywel Evans of Studio RHE. The complex will sit on a hillside olive grove, offering dramatic vistas of the bay, the island’s cliffs and ancient ruins. The details of the hotel have not yet been revealed, but what we know so far is that the three-storey complex (61 meter diameter) will be very slowly rotating 1.3 times per day. The lower level of the building and the center hub (21 meter diameter), with the Reception, stairs and lifts, will not rotate. The hotel will be surrounded by infinity edge swimming pools forming a unique artificial lake.

RHS Studio is a truly bold specialist in holiday resort design. The studio’s projects have already emerged in such exotic locations as, among others, Barbados, the Maldives, Zanzibar or Seychelles.

  2. Ovelia is indeed deoicilus! For the longest time, the Queens scene was very underrated. Astoria and Long Island City have recently grown in popularity, and with due cause. The dining alone in Astoria is worth a trip from Manhattan. Figure in the art scene and skyline views, and you really can’t find much better. We’re happy to see that you share our same love for Queens especially when it comes to the local restaurants!
