The Kukuriku hotel is a hidden gem in Croatia. Much better known for the excellent restaurant, the hotel is equally deserving of praise.
Though technically not a 5-star hotel because there is no pool, gym, business center etc., it surpasses most of the other hotels I've stayed in in terms of room spaciousness, design, furniture quality and the atmosphere. The location is in a beautiful old little city, overlooking the bay of Kvarner. When you get there, you can forget all about the outside world. The staff will do their best to help. Considering the accommodation and the level of service you get, this is by far the best money-for-value option I've experienced in Croatia.
The restaurant which actually came first and started the Kukuriku story is a must for all people appreciating slow food and wine connoisseurs. There is no written menu since they only serve fresh food. It is best just to indicate if there is something you cannot eat and then let the excellent and very experienced waiters to guide you through your meal. They will accompany each course with a glass of different carefully selected wine if you do not choose a bottle yourself, explaining all about the vintage and the meal itself in the process. The courses are all carefully thought-through and executed flawlessly. Basically, you cannot go wrong no matter what you choose (or what they bring you).
For a weekend getaway filled with elegant hedonism, I have yet to find a place that will do it better.
