Island Hotel Istra 4* in Rovinj is a wonderful hotel, beloved by tourists for many years, secluded on the Red Island. The location on a small island among pines is the main advantage of the hotel. St. Andrew’s Island is a place where you don’t feel “out of touch” with life, getting to Rovinj is not a problem, but at the same time it is an ideal place for a measured rest. There are only 2 hotels on the Red Island – the large Island Hotel Istra and the cozy All Suite Hotel Istra. Guests of both hotels have access to the entire infrastructure of the island and the Island Hotel Istra. The Island Hotel Istra is suitable for a relaxing family holiday with children, a romantic getaway for two or for an active pastime with friends.
Island Hotel Istra is located among the picturesque bays and beaches on the Red Island. Only 15 minutes boat trip separates the island from Rovinj. From the Red Island to Rovinj there is a boat every hour from 6 am to 12 am. The last boat trip from Rovinj is at midnight, and during the high season at 1 am. The boat makes 2 stops: the first is at the Delfin pier, from where excursion buses leave, and the second is in the Old Town. Upon check-in, all hotel guests receive a free boat ticket, valid for the entire stay.
Pula International Airport is located 47 km from Rovinj – it takes 30-40 minutes by car on the highway. Ljubljana Airport in Slovenia is located two hours drive from Rovinj.
Relaxation on the island is specific because it is completely surrounded with beaches. In front of the hotel there is a renovated pebble beach, if you have an adventurous spirit and are in search for privacy you will find many spots on the many hidden beaches and small bays to explore and enjoy.

Embark on the best culinary adventure in the authentic historical setting of the Restaurant La Serra, situated in a summer house on St. Andrew’s Island. Expect a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Mediterranean specialties made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, and paired with the unavoidable Istrian wines.
