Facilities & Amenities
Located in a supreme site in Punta Skala peninsula, the Falkensteiner Hotel is within minutes of Zadar, where history aficionados can spend the day taking in the sites of the city’s Old Town and ancient landmarks like a third-century forum founded by Roman Emperor Augustus and the Romanesque-style St. Anastasia’s Cathedral, dating back to the 12th century. The region is known for its beautiful coastline as well, dotted with more than 1,000 islands to explore – and a translucent sea that welcomes swimming, parasailing, yachting and canoeing (the hotel’s beach conveniently operates a water sport and diving center); a variety of on-land sporting endeavors are available to guests desiring an invigorating holiday as well. When it’s time to relax, there are plenty of lounging spots to soak in the surrounding area’s exquisite beauty, including heated stone plateaus, a shaded pine forest bordering the beach, or, of course, on the sand, steps from the sea.

The five-star Falkensteiner Hotel has 210 guest rooms, 50 of them suites, with glistening views of the Adriatic Sea, surrounding coastal islands and Velebit mountain cascade.

Amenities like satellite TV, LAN connection, air conditioning and balconies create a comfortable environment.
