The design of new Mövenpick Split was done by local award - Architect Alan Plestina of Pulsar Arhitektura in collaboration with Accor’s leading Design & Technical Services team. Plestina was responsible for many of Croatia’s most exciting projects including Arena Centar Shopping complex and the Arena Centar Sports hall which both won international awards for Design. The hotel design is modern yet cosy, luxurious yet approachable, a perfect design for the vibrant Split Market.
For the Rooftop design Mövenpick Split partnered with internationally famous and award-winning Kristina Zanic Designs out of Dubai, having world-wide experience creating spaces in the top tourist destinations globally. Kristina and team created a design focused all day experience where the hotel will be able to showcase the best in healthy Mediterranean cuisine. Using deep coastal colours, and the famous dalmatian sunset as their inspiration resulted with a restaurant bar unlike anything else in the region. It is sure to become the IN Spot in Split for years to come.
Partnering with Accor fits perfectly in our vision and philosophy to create comfortable, exclusive places for hotel guests and local community.
