Why we love this!

” We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Meneghetti Wine Hotel in Istria, Croatia— a destination that had been on my bucket list for years. As we approached the hotel via a long, beautiful gravel drive lined by vineyards, the sight of the elegant Istrian stone building was truly breathtaking. This hotel exudes a chilled and sophisticated ambiance with understated decor that perfectly complements its natural surroundings.

Upon arrival, I was immediately struck by the beauty of the gardens. Lounging on a sunbed, surrounded by nature, I could hear the birds singing and see the stunning flowers that adorned the grounds. The hotel rooms and apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, feature natural and earthy decor that creates a calming atmosphere. Some accommodations even come with private pools and lovely private gardens, adding an extra touch of luxury.
The Meneghetti Wine Hotel is all about food and wine, and they certainly excel in both areas. The service was second to none—charming, attentive, and incredibly knowledgeable about wine. The hotel’s “fork to table” philosophy means that all produce is grown on the land, resulting in a menu that is both stunning and delicious. 
The spa at Meneghetti includes two treatment rooms, a gym, sauna, and steam room, providing the perfect space to unwind and relax. There are also three swimming pools: two outdoor pools and one indoor spa pool. The pool area is great for families, with fantastic music, plenty of sun-beds and swing, with various seating areas surrounded by vineyards and beautifully manicured gardens. Guests can also enjoy a leisurely walk through the gardens to the quieter outside pool, adding another touch to the hotel’s tranquil appeal.
Of course, the highlight of Meneghetti is its wine. With three vineyards, the wine here is nothing short of incredible. The variety of wines is extensive, and you can taste the passion and hard work that goes into the production. The white wine, in particular, is very special, offering a distinctive and unique flavour.
Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just someone looking to enjoy a wonderful time, the Meneghetti Wine Hotel has something for everyone. Even if you’re not into wine, you’ll still have the best time meeting people and experiencing the passion of the winemaking.
This sophisticated yet relaxed hotel is a true gem in the heart of Istria” ~ Karen & James
