On any given day, the hotels, apartment settlements, camps, rural tourism facilities and classic private accommodation facilities can accommodate about 200 thousand guests. To improve the quality of accommodation and services, six of the largest Istrian hotel companies in 2006 invested about one billion HRK in the renovation of their facilities. To this must be added investments by smaller companies and private owners. The Master plan of Istrian tourism for 2004 to 2012 foresees joint investments of the private and public sector in the amount of three billion Euros.
Significant investments of the public sector in the next five years are also planned for the renovation of infrastructure on the islands in Istra. On the Brijuni archipelago alone, about 150 million HRK will be invested in this period.
The hotel company Istraturist has three hotels of four star category – Sol Aurora, Sol Koralj and Sol Umag – located in Umag. In Poreč the Hotel Diamant of the company Riviera, as well as the newly renovated Albatros all inclusive, Vila Lagun Galijot and Laguna Park owned by the company Plava laguna are all four star category. The company Maistra has two four star hotels at its disposal in Rovinj – Eden and Istra – however this company plans to invest nearly 600 million HRK into the renovation of their capacities. From the hotel of the Pula company Arenaturist, the following hotels have four stars: the hotel Histria in Pula and Medulin in the place of the same name. In the hotel company Rabac, the Hotel Lanterna in Rabac has four stars. These companies, as well as some other smaller companies, offer increasingly better quality apartment and camp accommodation, of which many already have four stars. Among smaller and family hotels the best equipped is the Rovinj Angel d’oro with five stars, followed by the San Rocco in Brtonigli and Villa Letan in Peroj with four stars.
Rural tourism facilities are fast becoming a favourite type of accommodation for both foreign and domestic tourists primarily due to their overall and autochthonous qualities. In Istra there are hundreds of them and each one is specific in its own right (www.istra.hr/agroturizam). Some offer only overnight stays with breakfast, some are real rural hotels or rural rest houses, while estates are becoming increasingly popular. Other than accommodation and excellent homemade gastro specialities, some rural tourism facilities offer opportunities to work in the vineyards, try grape-picking and wine production. They can also try to milk cows or learn to make Istrian fuži (traditional pasta) and macaroni. Villas with pools are also popular and increasing in number every year. These are distinctive with their top class architectural design, often mimicking old Istrian stone houses, with luxuriously equipped interiors and gardens with a pool. Requests for accommodation in light-houses is also on the rise, like the one in Poreč, on the reef of the same name which is southwest from Cape Kamenjak where two four bed apartments are leased out.
Of the total number of accommodation capacities in Istra about 15 percent, or 35,000 beds are encompassed by private rooms and apartments. These are mostly in Rovinj, Poreč and Medulin. Detailed information about this type of accommodation, whether in regards to equipment level or prices, may be obtained in local tourist offices, as well as in nearly one hundred tourist agencies where you can immediately make a reservation for a specific room or apartment.
