Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel Spa

Ika, Opatija Riviera, Croatia

Ikador Luxury Boutique

IKADOR LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL & SPA Review

Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel Spa is a 16 room boutique hotel located in the town of Ika along the iconic coastline of the Opatija Riviera. This area has a unique microclimate; mild winters, humid air, and seawater with a high saline content which made it a healing retreat and a beloved resort of the European Aristocracy since the 19th century. Even today, the heritage of this unique area is alive and well in the remarkable architecture present along the coast. 

Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel Spa opened with the plan to create a name for itself as the most luxurious hotel in Croatia. The idea behind this particular project is simple, to create a space of re-defined luxury from which travelers can venture out to explore and enjoy this destination of endless inspiration and heritage.

The pride of Ikador is the exclusive partnership with the prestigious Italian Riva Yacht brand. As one of only 7 Riva Lounge locations in the world (other locations include Monaco and Venice), Ikador is the only hotel property that offers Riva Yacht brand concepts – the Riva Lounge pool & bar area and the Riva Privée chef’s table area, designed and furnished by Riva Yacht brand. The Riva Aquariva Super Speedboat is undoubtedly the pinnacle of this unique partnership, though! Hotels guests can explore the Opatija Riviera and nearby islands in true James Bond-style onboard the Riva Aquariva Super speedboat!

With only nine guest rooms and seven suites (including a Presidential Suite), the Ikador fits travelers looking for an exclusive getaway. Open year-round; this is also a perfect winter escape thanks to its luxurious spa and sea-facing location, not to mention the heated outdoor swimming pool, private beach deck, and even a mini-golf course!

Style

Croatian design firm Atellior was brought in to create the design plan for Ikador, and they took much of their inspiration from the land and sea surrounding the hotel. Opatija’s rich history and architectural style provided inspiration for the hotel’s overall design. Atellior wanted to evoke a feeling of the golden age of Opatija but with a modern twist. To do this, they’ve used timeless materials in new and fresh ways and have created architectural details inspired by the historical villas of the area. With infinite sea view of Kvarner Bay visible from every corner of the hotel and luxurious finishes, carefully chosen materials, and bespoke furniture filling out the interior, Ikador gives guests an exquisite and sophisticated vibe.
