Famed tenor Andrea Bocelli marked the opening ceremony of the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj

One of the most renowned tenors in the world, Andrea Bocelli, performed at the ceremonial opening of the Monte Mulini complex – one of the most luxurious tourist zones at the Adriatic, in which Adris have invested 200 million euros.

Within the zone, which transforms Rovinj into a luxurious tourist destination, the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj has recently been opened. It is the largest individual investment of Adris Group concerning their tourism business, worth more than 95 million euros. The hotel project has also been declared as a strategic project of the Croatian Government.

The opening performance of the world-renowned cellist Stjepan Hauser of Two Celos was followed up by the highlight of the ceremonial opening of the complex – the concert of Andrea Bocelli on a spectacular sea stage production in the Lone Bay.

The unforgettable atmosphere was set off by visual effects and fireworks, while Bocelli delighted guests with hits Con te partirò, Besame mucho, I can’t help falling in love, and many others.

Numerous guests from Croatian society and world entertainment enjoyed this unique concert. Among them were actress Daisy Lewis (above far right), famous for her role in period drama Downton Abbey and British model Portia Freeman (below), a runway model for fashion shows and designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi, amongst others.

Top sporting event Adris 44Cup

As part of the Grand opening celebrations of the hotel from 29 May to 2 June, the picturesque town of Rovinj returned in great style to the world map as organisers of  prestigious sailing regattas.

Adris 44Cup, a unique sporting, tourist and social event,  brought the world’s best known world sailors, winners of the Olympics and Americas Cup. During four days of competition, Grand Park Hotel Rovinj was the host of all evening entertainment including the welcome party and gala dinner.

Mr Chris Bake, President of the 44 Cup says: 

“Rovinj was for all of us the regata that we will remember all our lives. These four days in Croatia I would call the “sailing of the new generation”, because of all the events that surrounded this cup. The regata not only happened at sea, but the social aspect on land was sensational, and the events that Adris and Maistra delivered have been spectacular. After 13 years of sailing around the world, the regata in Rovinj was, I feel, the best ever”


All these elements came together in perfect harmony to celebrate both The Grand Park Hotel’s arrival  and the historical town of Rovinj as Croatia’s premier luxury travel destinations.
