June 27, 2022 - This summer, guests at Marvie Hotel & Health can win an incredible prize by filming and promoting the natural, cultural, and historical beauties of Dalmatia. 

This year, Marvie Hotel & Health in Split has decided to relaunch “Reel Story of Croatia” - its contest of the decade, and just like last summer, its guests have the chance to win an incredible ten years of hotel stays for two people! 

This intriguing prize includes 3 free nights at Marvie Hotel with breakfast for two, each year from 2023 to 2032! From June 1st to September 30th, all guests who spend at least one night at this hotel with the most beautiful panoramic rooftop pool in Split can participate in this exciting contest and win a decade of hotel stays in a Superior Room overlooking the islands. 


Hotel guests become ambassadors of Dalmatia's beauties 

Hotel Marvie has created this contest exclusively for its guests with the aim of promoting the beauties of the Croatian coast and its inland region. The task is simple: aim to capture the most beautiful moments of your vacation in Croatia via Instagram, i.e. via Reel videos - and just like last summer, the best clip, selected by the Hotel Management team, will win a decade of stays in a sea-view Superior room overlooking the islands. Last year's extremely successful contest involved many hotel guests and over 50 Reel videos generated more than 150,000 views from Instagram users all around the world. 


Last year’s winner was London-based Patrick Whelan 

Last year, the Marvie Hotel Management team had the difficult task of selecting a winner among many great videos, and in the end, Patrick Whelan from Britain collected his decade of hotel stays with his creative Reel. 


The lucky Englishman received the official confirmation at his home address in London. The winning video in which he shared his hotel and destination experience in Split in just 30 seconds can be viewed below. 

Although this was not the original plan, Marvie also decided to give out a second prize to guest Aine Webster for her Reel. Aine was awarded 3 free nights in 2022! 

What can we expect this year? 

"This year we expect even more views and Reels of our beautiful Dalmatia," says Marvie Hotel & Health GM Diana Rubić. 

Diana reveals that the guests' response last year exceeded their expectations and that they also fell in love with Dalmatia again while viewing the scenes of natural and cultural beauties recorded for the Reels.

“We are aware that most of our guests come to Marvie because of the beauty that our nature, history, and culture offer them. With this contest, our goal is to say thank you to every guest who has chosen our hotel and the city of Split as their summer home and give them the opportunity to stay with us for the next 10 years," added GM Rubić.

Marvie Hotel & Health in Split Introduces Cryptocurrency Payment 

March 29, 2021 - In collaboration with the Croatian fintech startup Electrocoin, Marvie Hotel & Health in Split has enabled its guests to book and pay for accommodation and other services via cryptocurrencies.

After introducing a new offer for digital nomads in mid-February, allowing remote workers a long-term stay - 28 days or longer - with an all-year-long 50% discount as well as the use of its own coworking space, Marvie Hotel & Health now has other great news to share.


Namely, in cooperation with Electrocoin, Croatia’s fastest-growing fintech startup, Marvie has introduced the possibility of paying with cryptocurrencies. In addition to booking and paying for hotel accommodation in Split with cryptocurrencies, with the help of PayCek - the electronic payment service for cryptocurrency processing, at Marvie Hotel & Health you can also purchase coffee, lunch, and wellness services by means of this payment method, regardless of whether you are a hotel guest or just a visitor at this destination.


Marvie Hotel & Health is among the first hotels in Croatia to take a step in this direction, which puts it alongside world-renowned hotels and brands that have embraced this modern payment method, such as the Canadian hotel chain Sandman Hotels Group, the Swiss luxury hotel Grand Hotel Dolder or Japan Railways - the largest railway operator in Japan.


“We follow digital trends on a daily basis to keep up with technological advancements and a constant wish to meet the needs of our guests. Recently we have received numerous inquiries on the possibility of alternative methods of payment, i.e., the use of cryptocurrencies, and this only facilitated our decision. Our ultimate goal is to raise the experience of staying at Marvie’s to a whole new level – nowadays, via a modern, fast and secure use of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment, which is a result of our successful collaboration with Electrocoin - one of the leading Croatian financial startups, a pioneer on the national cryptocurrency market,” says Diana Rubić, general manager of Marvie Hotel & Health. 


Paying for accommodation and other services at this hotel in the center of the city of Split is made available via PayCek, with as many as six types of cryptocurrencies, among which the most popular are Bitcoin and Ethereum. The payment process itself is extremely simple, all you need is a digital wallet and an inquiry sent to Marvie Hotel & Health via their website. Once the hotel staff has received your request, your reservation will be successfully completed in just a few steps via the PayCek service.


“We are thrilled to witness the number of PayCek clients increasing each day, especially when they are innovative and have a clear business strategy such as Marvie Hotel & Health. They have recognized the potential of cryptocurrency payments and hence gained an advantage over their competitors on the market, particularly with tourists and foreign guests," said CEO Electrocoina Nikola Škorić.


Due to the global pandemic, attracting guests this season is likely to be an extra challenge, especially when taking into account the extremely high competition. Nevertheless, the introduction of a cryptocurrency payment option, in addition to the already mentioned offer for digital nomads, makes Marvie Hotel & Health an extremely appealing choice for all visitors looking for a hotel accommodation that meets the requirements of the modern guest.

Marvie Hotel, For a Healthy and Happy Holiday in Split

February 10, 2020 - Recover, reshape, and recharge at Marvie Hotel & Health in Split. 

Wellness is the ‘active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life’. 

The World Health Organisation considers it “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being,” while it is "a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential” by The National Wellness Institute.

With more stressors surrounding us today than ever before, wellness has become the focal point that aids us through the day-to-day. Whether we turn to meditation, yoga, skincare or eating better, wellness shows its face in many ways and comes in a selection of shapes and sizes. 

Travelers today are increasingly turning away from the busier tourist cities and instead opting for wellness breaks, healing retreats, or spa getaways to help improve their physical or mental health. With that idea in mind, wellness tourism has taken off. 

Thus, in the heart of Split, you’ll find a hub for health and wellness - Marvie Hotel. 

Marvie_hotel room.jpg

After opening its doors in 2017, Marvie became Dalmatia’s first hotel focusing on medical tourism, targeting quality self-care in all of its segments. 

Located in Split's quiet residential area of Zenta, just a five-minute drive from the bustling city center, Marvie is spacious and modern, boasting an underground garage on three floors, 74 rooms and two suites, and modular halls that can accommodate up to 65 people. 

However, what truly makes Marvie the heart of medical tourism in Split is its health and wellness offer. 

The Renevie wellness zone is where guests can recover, reshape, and recharge. With relaxation at its core, the Renevie wellness zone offers an indoor hot tub and pool, as well as an outdoor rooftop infinity pool that boasts breathtaking views of the city. In the summer, the rooftop becomes an oasis for guests looking to enjoy the easygoing Mediterranean lifestyle, where sunbeds are offered for you to kick back with a cold drink and light snacks, while summer yoga sessions and exercise programs are held to encourage the more active vacationers.

The Renevie wellness zone offers two private saunas that provide a variety of ways to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. The Finnish sauna is for those looking to detox or enhance their skin elasticity, while the Turkish sauna benefits the immune system and helps with hydration. A fully equipped gym is also available for guests looking to push their fitness limits. 

AquaMed Medical Wellness, which is a modern clinic for physical medicine and rehabilitation, is a fundamental part of Marvie’s wellness offer. With a focus on physical therapy, manual therapy using the Maitland concept, hydrotherapy pool exercises, massages (medical, sport, AquaMed, aroma, anti-cellulite), beauty treatments, acupuncture and nutritional counseling, AquaMed aims to prevent and eliminate health and aesthetic challenges, while preserving your power and beauty.


Whether you require a physician, acupuncturist, nutritionist, masseuse, beautician, or pedicurist, Marvie’s specialists provide a full range of physical therapy and aesthetic services for guests to enjoy. 

Because Mediterranean cuisine is a vital organ to the region, Marvie fuses fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients with a scientific approach to ensure your dietary needs are fulfilled. Whether you have a specific medical condition or are looking to detox and adopt healthier eating habits, Marvie’s nutritional experts will craft plans tailored to your wishes.

The Da’Mar restaurant at the hotel adds a modern touch to Mediterranean-inspired dishes, which are adjusted to service the gluten-free guests. Everything at the hotel, from light bites to dessert, is prepared fresh and in house daily. 

Finally, what completes Marvie is its partners. 

The Mediderm clinic at Marvie, which is led by dr. med. Sanda Peric-Susak, boasts twenty years of experience and specializes in dermatovenerology and anti-aging treatments. Their team of experts focuses on aesthetic and vascular surgery, immunology, endocrinology, allergology, orthopedics, and sports traumatology. Whether you’re looking to reduce the signs of aging or want a clearer picture of your overall health, the Mediderm clinic is at your service to ensure your body is taken care of. 


Therapists Vanja and Kristijan Kasalo are on hand to look after your mental health. After years of experience from Split to Norway and back, their private practice of integrative psychotherapy will give you professional insight and offer techniques to help you maintain a healthy mindset.

IDC Ruzevic, on the other hand, is the most modern facility for dental medicine and implantology in Dalmatia. Led by Niki Ruzevic, M.D., who boasts 35 years of experience as a dentist and more than 15 years of experience in implantology, its modern facilities include four dental offices, a surgical room, a sterilization room and an X-ray area. Offering a range of treatments for your oral health, IDC Ruzevic uses sophisticated methods, premium materials, and modern devices to care for each patient individually. 

With a full range of quality services on offer for its guests, there is no better way to optimize your well-being than at Marvie Hotel.

Marvie Hotel & Health: Your Dalmatian Destination for Congress Tourism

October 28, 2019 - We know that orchestrating your company’s conferences, meetings or team building events can take time and test your patience, but it doesn’t have to be all that bad in the end - that is, if you choose Marvie Hotel & Health


Marvie Hotel & Health opened its doors back in 2017 as the first hotel specializing in health tourism in Dalmatia, with each segment of its offer focused on quality self-care. Located in Split's residential area of Zenta, known as one of the city’s poshest neighborhoods, Marvie is spacious and modern, boasting an underground garage on three floors, 74 rooms and two suites, and modular halls that can accommodate up to 65 people. Your team will turn on relaxation mode from the moment they walk through its doors. 


With wellness at the forefront, Marvie has always kept companies in mind, and in doing so, they’ve set the bar high for team members visiting the hotel, offering a variety of morning exercises as a foolproof way to get the day off to a good start -  like yoga, tai-chi, hydro gymnastics, or physiotherapy training. And if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you can take your team to the nearby tennis courts or stroll along the coast, which you’ll find just minutes outside of the hotel. 

But that’s not all. 

Marvie offers a tranquil work environment to ensure a fruitful and productive day among colleagues - and once the work is done, the fun begins. Namely, your associates can gather at the hotel restaurant Da’Mar, or the Renevie Wellness next to the indoor pool, for music, drinks, and mingling once the business hours have passed. 


If you’re looking to wind down with food, the Da’Mar restaurant is a paradise for gourmands and offers carefully crafted creative, clean, and mostly gluten-free dishes. But if you’d rather dive headfirst into leisure, the extensive Renevie wellness area boasts an indoor pool and relax zone, jacuzzi, Finnish and Turkish saunas, and a gym. Apart from the various types of massages and beauty treatments, dermatological services and effective but non-invasive skin rejuvenation methods, you can also tap into the full range of medical wellness and physiotherapy methods for faster recovery and better overall health. 


Or, visit the Aqua Med Medical Wellness - Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic and MediDerm Clinic - a dermatological clinic for cosmetic medicine. Guests can even receive a physical examination at the MediDerm Clinic, where vital functions, lab tests, and specialist medical examinations are at your disposal. Better yet, this can all be done in a day. 


However, if the weather abides, you can take your team to the inviting rooftop terrace and network at the outdoor swimming pool where evening entertainment or relaxing programs will help team members unwind after a long day. The rooftop views of Split are unparalleled. 


If you want to give your team even more, Marvie can coordinate casual team building activities such as a gluten-free cooking workshop or classic Mediterranean cuisine - or have them learn from a cocktail master, barista, or sommelier with the drink workshops available. You can even opt to stimulate your employees further with a corporate seminar led by renowned lecturers.


If your team spirit thrives outdoors, you won’t be disappointed by the excursions on offer, like trips to Croatia’s most famous national parks, horseback riding, ziplining, island hopping, or connecting the Game of Thrones fans’ in the group for a tour of the Croatian filming locations. 

Marvie has done its part to ensure its wellness climate and overall offer are designed to balance business minds. It’s not hard to see why this hotel is chosen for congress tourism in Croatia.
