The historic coastal city of Split is now home to a new 5-star property, Hotel Ambasador. The luxury hotel boasts 101 rooms all with sea or port views. Located on Split's seafront, the hotel connects the city's Riva and the famous Diocletian's Palace on the east with the ACI Marina and Marjan Forest Park on the west.
Designed by architects Nora Roje, Neno Kezic, and Emil Sverko, Hotel Ambasador is located on the site of a former hotel of the same name which originally opened in 1937. The new, much larger property, has been decorated with special attention to natural materials.
All areas in the hotel, from the lobby to the rooms, are decorated with typical Split scenes that were recorded or collected by Split photo chronicler Fedja Klaric. The reception desk is the handiwork of Slavonian master carpenters, made of black oak, retrieved from the bottom of the Sava river. There is also a dedication to the architectural history of Croatia in the form of chairs designed by Bernardo Bernardi. The rooms are designed with top-quality materials and calming neutral tones.
The Méditerranée Restaurant, under the leadership of chef Ivica Katic, offers the best of Mediterranean cuisine - from Lebanon to Gibraltar, using fresh ingredients from local farms. Right next to it is Bar Split, dominated by an imposing bar with an excellent selection of drinks, and a comfortable interior that invites you to socialize.
The outdoor swimming pool offers city and harbor views while the rooftop bar is designed as an exclusive space for private events, for a smaller number of people. Ambasador's multifunctional conference room has a capacity of 80 people and is equipped for high-profile business events.
Guests can indulge in a range of treatments using natural cosmetics at the Hacelia Spa and if they're looking to work up a sweat with some exercise, the hotel also has a separate fitness center.
