4 star luxury is guaranteed in this harbour front boutique hotel.
Situated on the tip of the peninsula of the island of the same name, Rab is a stunning town in which to stay, being circled by ancient stone walls and owing much of its atmosphere to its Roman heritage. Explore well preserved ancient quarters with cobbled streets and old churches. Rab itself has probably the liveliest nightlife to be found anywhere in the Kvarner Gulf.
The Arbiana Hotel comprises of just 28 beautifully furnished rooms, all with satellite TV, mini bar and free wifi. Every attention to detail has been observed to ensure guests total comfort. Furnishing is in Art Deco style yet with a great emphasis on ensuring the rooms make the most of the light which floods through the window all day. Most rooms have a balcony and all have sea, city or garden views. Guests are provided with sumptuous robes and comfortable slippers. There is a lift to all floors.
Pre dinner drinks may be taken in the well appointed and comfortable lounge bar, whilst the terrace of the Bristol Bar makes for a perfect location to watch the sun go down and the stars come out whilst enjoying a relaxing after dinner beverage.
The hotel restaurant is renowned for its cuisine, one of our clients has just returned and re-iterated this for us . The inspiration for this gourmet experience was taken by the Owners from the famous Terrace in the Sky, New York. The menu is varied and features only the finest organic fresh ingredients. International and traditional food is carefully prepared and served to tempt the most discerning of palates.
The hotel’s idyllic harbourside location means it is simple to get out about. Boat trips and water taxis abound, so exploring the other nearby islands such as Pag and Cres is a very pleasurable and easy experience. And if sandy beaches are your thing – then Rab is the place for you as there are plenty here.

We loved both the Hotel Arbiana and the Bastion
We are just back from our holiday in Rab and Zadar and once again all the arrangements worked perfectly and we loved both the Hotel Arbiana and the Bastion. The staff were so warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble--advice on where to go, where to eat,what the weather would be like etc. We enjoyed exploring Rab and also seeing Losinj and I see from the website there is going to be a hotel there next year (we are already thinking about where to go next June!) I expect you know the Arbiana has had a change of ownership and the restaurant is only open for breakfast. However there are lots of places to eat and we particularly liked the Astoria.
One thing we have been wondering about and that is whether Christina and Aida are still at the Villa Giardino in Bol--it is still a favourite of ours.
Many thanks to you and Barbara and Jane--we always feel confident that our holidays booked with Completely Travel will be very special.
