Welcome to The Melegran Hotel
Your home, at least for a while, in Rovinj.
We hope you use The Melegran as your basecamp and refuge. A basecamp to explore the delights Rovinj and the surrounding Istrian countryside has to offer; and a refuge to relax, be inspired and create.
Our story is a simple one. We love Rovinj. We were married here and generations of our family have lived and still live here. We’d be honoured to share our passion for Rovinj and beyond with the most precious part of the whole story of The Melegran – you, the guest.
Why The Melegran? Melegran means pomegranate in the old northwestern Istrian dialect, and pomegranate is a symbol of Rovinj. But we also liked the idea that most cultures have a story about the melegran in their past. And we want all cultures to feel at home when you stay at The Melegran.
The Hilltop Villa
Istrian countryside with its superb cuisine and rustic vineyards is an undiscovered gem. That’s why we built a hilltop villa close to the jazz town of Grožnjan, nestled amongst vineyards, some of which supply the wines downstairs. Please do ask us if you’d like information on the villa!

Housed in a converted four-story residence in the heart of the old town of Rovinj, The Melegran is an independent stylish hotel, offering guests a boutique base-camp for truly local experiences.
Set amongst the winding, cobbled streets of the ancient town of Rovinj on the tip of the Istrian peninsula, and a stone’s throw from the sparkling Adriatic Sea, The Melegran knows how to unwind or get playful. The cool, contemporary bolthole has a bar on the ground floor to just mingle or spark your inner creativity – which you can put down on paper via the exquisite Olivetti typewriters supplied in every room! The hotel and rooms are decorated with colourful, comfortable furnishings that take their inspiration from the warm, vibrant colours of Rovinj and the town’s symbol, the pomegranate, (or “Melegran” in Istrian dialect).
We want you to relax, undo the bad and do what’s good for you and enjoy sunny Istrian reverie, whether you’re seeking to write your own story, or just relax and reboot. Those who check in to tune out should also talk to our friendly staff about boating over to our beachclub and grabbing a sunlounger. Or pack a picnic and take one of our bikes through the tree-lined gravel paths to find your own secluded spot for a swim.
