Valamar Riviera is Record Holder for Employment in Tourism

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 26th of July, 2019, Valamar Riviera has employed 7,000 employees and confirmed its prestigious status as the largest tourist company and the best employer in tourism in the whole of the Republic of Croatia.

''We're happy to have passed the large number of 7,000 employees a few days ago. Our employees are working hard during the season, which has now entered its peak. In our 34 hotels and summer resorts, as well as in our 15 summer resort camps, we take care of 58,000 guests daily. We will continue to strive to improve the conditions for our employees to justify our title as the best employer in tourism, and be a good example for other companies,'' said Ines Damjanic Šturman, Human Resources Director at Valamar Riviera.

In August, Valamar Riviera will award a special reward to all of its employees for a very successful first part of 2019's tourist season. The reward in the net amount of 500 kuna will be paid to all of Valamar's employees working both full and fixed-term contracts, who will be in a working relationship with the company on July the 31st, and who have worked for at least half a month throughout the month of July. Students who will also work for at least two weeks in July will receive a prize in the net amount of 300 kuna. The awards will be paid in August along with the regular employee salary for July.

Valamar offers the best conditions for working in tourism and guarantees all its employees minimum net salaries in the amount of 5,000 kuna to 7,500 kuna, as well as a thirteenth salary in the amount of 5,000 kuna net for all permanent employees and those who will work for at least ten months in 2019.

Additionally, all employees who work for an indefinite period of time at the time of payment, Valamar will pay 2,000 kuna net as a Christmas bonus this year, and the employees with a fixed-term who will complete the season will be rewarded Valamar's seasonal work award in the net amount from 700 to 1,500 kuna depending on the number of hours worked.

Valamar Riviera Announces Plans for Croatia's Largest Summer Resort in Poreč

The Supervisory Board of Valamar Riviera d.d. has already approved the upcoming annual investment cycle of 599 million kuna. Thus, Valamar continues its intensive investment strategy to raise the quality of its portfolios and services to high-value tourism, reports HRTurizam on June 27, 2019.

Although significant, the investment cycle for 2020 is lower than in the previous years, and as highlighted by Valamar Riviera, it is because of the global slowdown in market demand and rising operating costs.

However, the big news surrounding the new investment cycle is the announcement of the largest Croatian summer resort with a total value of 790 million kuna, which was presented on Thursday in Poreč.

The Poreč hotel Pical 2* will be wholly transformed into a luxury five-star resort with about 500 accommodation units. The resort, which will accommodate as many as 1,700 guests, will have seven bars and seven restaurants, 2,200 square meter swimming pools, the Sundance beach club, indoor pool and wellness center, Maro family facilities and perhaps the most important - a congress center for 1,200 guests.


The construction of this summer resort is the most significant single investment in Croatian tourism, and the completion of the investment is planned for 2021. Valamar continues to invest in the Pical area, which together with the Valamar Collection Marea Suites 5*, which opened this year, will become the top of Poreč tourism and one of the most attractive tourist areas in Croatia.

"Valamar has successfully realized investments and business goals set for the past three years and is now moving into a new phase of development. We plan to continue developing our business following our formula of success based on investing in employees, products, and destinations, with sustainable development and socially responsible business. However, it is still necessary to work on the overall competitiveness of Croatian tourism compared to other destinations in the Mediterranean if we want to strengthen the investment potential of the tourism sector and keep our employees in tourism in Croatia,” said Željko Kukurin, Chairman of the Board of Valamar Riviera.

Valamar has successfully realized all this year's investments worth 793 million kuna. Thus, Valamar has invested a total of 5.8 billion kuna in Croatian tourism.

By the end of this year, a new development strategy will be presented for the next three-year period, and thus continue to realize the vision of leaders in holiday tourism that, in partnership with destinations, provides authentic guests experiences, concludes Valamar.
