Project aim

The aim of the project is to increase the number of accommodation units and to improve the quality of accommodation, as well as to enrich the existing offer of the tourist property with additional services and facilities, which will in turn enable a more fulfilling and unforgettable experience on the island of Rab.
Improving the quality and differentiation of the tourist offer will contribute to the extension of the tourist season, and greater occupancy and longer stays in hotels. This will significantly increase the competitiveness of SMEs in tourism and the island of Rab as a tourist destination.
This project comprises the renovation of existing premises, and the provision of new amenities inside and outside the hotel in order to achieve a higher quality of service in line with the planned hotel category. The implementation of the project, which includes the renovation of the Arbiana tourist property, the extension of the offer through additional amenities, and also the training of hotel staff, will increase the competitiveness of the property. In combination with the hotel’s advantageous location, this will result in the increased competitiveness not only of the property itself but also of the destination as a whole. The innovativeness of the additional offer – the construction and fitting out of an outdoor pool, the renovation and fitting out of the wine bar, the purchasing of recreational equipment that has no negative impact on the environment but emphasises the importance of renewable energy sources and at the same time represents an innovation on the market – ensures the high-quality tourist offer of the property and represents an additional reason for visiting the town of Rab.
