Hotel Garden Istra Plava Laguna

  • Family

Bike and relax with the whole family

Garden Istra Plava Laguna is a 4 star hotel for families, ideal for cycle enthusiasts - so if your family likes to cycle you get to have twice the fun and joy out your holiday at Garden Istra. The interior is decorated in a rustic Istrian village style, with a lot of lavender and olive trees planted everywhere. The lobby looks exactly like a tiny village square, with reception on one end and a bar on the other - but the rooms are urban and comfortable.

When not cycling through the Istrian countryside looking for a perfect tavern for lunch, you'll enjoy a spacious outdoor pool or a waterpark with a sundeck around it (there is a smaller indoor pool so that you can keep up your training regime even during the colder months). The beach is some 100 meters away, through a nice pine tree alley.

There are tennis courts nearby (Umag being the tennis center of this part of the world, ATP tennis tour and all) and you are welcome to use the gym and the wellness center. There are sports programs almost every day, so even with temperatures below 18°C, you'll get professional coaches that will make you sweat - if only so you'd have a reason to soak in a Jacuzzi or sauna right after.

Kids will love it, as Garden Istra has a vibrant kids' program with a clubhouse near the pool complex and nightly entertainment on the terrace.


Your safety is our priority. That is why we have placed an even greater focus on health, hygiene and social distancing and taken all the necessary steps to make you feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. We are doing our best to make sure you fully enjoy the breath-taking destinations and attractions, all from the perfectly safe accommodation of your choosing.
