Hotel description

Looking for more than a quick getaway? For anyone who wants to escape, to get out of the city, out of the daily grind, and even out of this century, the Ethno-Hotel Balatura is a perfect match. Restored by historical preservation experts, this Croatian lodge is an enchanting place to find peace and nature!
The Ethno-Hotel Balatura
For generations, this historic estate in the small, sedate village Tribalj (near Rijeka) has belonged to the Godec family. Goran and Anne-Kathrin, the current owners, moved to this picturesque Croatian valley from Germany with their five children, establishing a dream hotel for individualists. The mixture of rustic farmhouse-architecture and artful design in muted yet merry colors creates a wonderful effect. Around the hotel, the unique landscape of the Karst mountain range stretches out, affording countless opportunities for nature activities. Goran, the host, is himself a passionate hang-glider. There are also offerings on the culture level: on the initiative of hostess Anne-Kathrin, who herself is an author, regular readings and concerts take place in the house.
Staying at the Ethno-Hotel Balatura
In accordance with the nature and culture-oriented philosophy of this small family hotel, each of the rooms is furnished under the banner of a native plant. There are a total of 6 rooms to choose from, each painted after its name, individually arranged and uniquely furnished. Guests congregate to eat in a private-seeming dining room with open kitchen. Until 11 o’clock, an abundant breakfast buffet awaits here, while at night a daily alternating choice of 3-4 course meals are served. By day, guests can serve themselves and take their food into the garden if the weather is nice. In addition, the kitchen is open round the clock for all guests, equipped with snacks and drinks.
