Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Perched on the northern tip of a coastal peninsula, Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Iadera is in a world of its own but is a short drive up the coast from Zadar, so you’re never far away should you be craving some urbanity. Sleek and modern throughout, this resort is brilliant for recharging in the excellent spa and is within easy reach of beautiful countryside and the Velebit mountain range.

Rooms at Hotel & Spa Iadera

Rooms and suites are as bright, breezy and modern as the rest of the hotel, with light wood floors, marine colour schemes and large balconies with beautiful views overlooking the sea. Beds are luxuriously comfortable and suites feature separate seating, working and relaxation areas.

Food and drink

Gourmands won’t be disappointed at Iadera, with several restaurants to choose from serving up Adriatic-Alpine cuisine inspired in equal measure by the Mediterranean coastline and Croatia’s Austro-Hungarian-influenced interior. At Bracera beach bar, fresh seafood is cooked over holm oak and olive wood and served to you beside the ocean, while Konobo Planika is a traditional Dalmatian tavern serving grilled meats, pastas and pizzas. After dinner, there are a range of bars where you can enjoy a drink while the sun goes down.


The Acquapura Spa is beautifully designed in a modern style and features extensive wellness treatments and facilities, including several indoor and outdoor pools; a Turkish hammam; a wellness garden with an outdoor whirlpool; a sauna area featuring a Finnish sauna, brine steam bath, and cold-water canal; and gym facilities. There are also various relaxation areas including dark rooms with relaxation swings and water beds, and SPA Bistro, where a range of healthy dishes are on offer.
