The most unusual and impressive martian-themed hotel in Croatia – Villa Nai 3.3 hotel 5* – was built during the recent COVID epidemics times, at the top of the hill close by famous Nature Park Telashica / Telašćica, located at the Dugi Island of Zadar riviera.
The hypnotizing impression of the otherworldly – martian – landscape surrounding the hotel, cradled by the ringing silence and stillness of this unpopulated region, is only disturbed by the calls of deers, there are roughly 1500 deers inhabiting the island, and the chirping of ethnic birds.
The design of the Hotel Nai belongs to the hand of the well-known Dalmatian architect Nikola Basic. There are only 5 rooms and 3 apartments available to rent at the hotel. The three of the rooms, as well as all three apartments, share an incredibly opened view onto the Adriatic seaside, the surrounding islands, the olive gardens and the thick pine forest.
All the rooms are furnished and decorated with an exceptional taste and luxury, with the modern Italian interior designers’ furniture and eccentric decor details. The bathrooms are just as exquisite and spacious, supplied with the Hermes cosmetic items and thick soft towels.
The massive swimming pool is filled with the real sea water, and has an exceptional panoramic view onto the opened sea and the nearby islands, is placed in just a few steps from the spacious hotel rooms’ terraces. A narrow natural stone path, running by the olive trees and the fragrant lavender and immortelle grass bushes, leads right down to the swimming pool. There is also a smaller swimming pool at the neat yet richly equipped SPA zone, hidden in the rock of the hill. All the services guests may receive at the said SPA zone are based on the healing and cosmetic properties of the olives.
Two restaurants of the hotel, run by the professional chefs, are offering the hotel guests a taste of the traditional Mediterranean and island cuisine.
Majority of the fruits and vegetables offered to the guests come from its personal garden, located at the very top of the hill, right above the hotel. Hotel is also serviced by the oil mill and the chicken coop, situated a little further away from the garden.
The olive oil produced from the olives of the Hotel Nai estate regularly wins high-grade international awards.
