Hotel Lone, the first design hotel in Croatia, is situated in the Zlatni Rt (Golden Cape) forest park, Rovinj’s most attractive tourist zone, located in the immediate vicinity of the legendary Eden Hotel and the new Monte Mulini hotel. 

The surrounding grounds and parkland are a unique and protected region of the Zlatni Rt forest in the Lone Bay.

The hotel’s identity is recognized through the external design of the building, with a facade that is defined by dominant horizontal lines — terrace guards designed to evoke the image of slanted boat decks. The building’s floorplates contract from level to level going up, creating an elevation that is tapered at all angles. 

The sites’ complex terrain with dramatic altitude changes determined the locations of internal facility spaces through a dynamic interweaving of public areas and guest suites at all levels.

The term design hotel is meant to illustrate this as a space that nurtures the concept of an interesting and functional design. It was created by a team of renowned Croatian creatives comprised of a new generation of architects, conceptual artists, product, fashion and graphic designers. 

The architects from Studio 3LHD were responsible for the design and construction of the hotel building. In addition to the overall architecture, the interiors and the furniture were designed and chosen especially for the hotel in order to achieve a distinct and recognizable identity. The designers from Numen / For Use designed the furniture. The fashion studio I-GLE designed the staff uniforms and other textiles. 
Artist Silvio Vujičić created graphics on fabrics for the rooms. Installations in the hotel lobby were made by a group of innovative artists: Ivana Franke — Room for running ghosts; Silvio Vujičić — In the hanging garden no one speaks and the fashion studio I-GLE — textile compositions Nº1, Nº2, Nº3. Studio92 designed the Wellness & Spa center, while Studio Kappo did the landscape design. The agency Bruketa & Žinić OM conceived and oversaw the visual identity of the hotel.
