WE LOVE FRESH. WE LOVE VALUE. WE LOVE LOCAL.
Love Local, Love Split Attitude
to reignite guests’ joy of travel through distinct, local experiences
From the hotel opening, it was always our intention to create state-of-the-art experiences and in order to do that we need to work on the development of the product within the destination and create product experiences that first, match our destination’s DNA, second, meet high standards for quality, and last but not least, are tailored to certain markets or market segments. To make this happen, we need to involve and work closely with locals and other stakeholders responsible for delivering these experiences.
Cornaro Hotel launched the „Love Local, Love Split“ to build awareness of how important it is to support the local business community as well as provide programs and activities to help local businesses, traditions, and culture.
Local ownership, management structure, and staff in the hotel, the use of local suppliers, hotel design, central city location, and the Dalmatian focus of the restaurant gourmet offer based on the traditional recipes, local products and ingredients are combining hotel’s strong connections with the community and are all creating our brand’s authenticity.
The hotel’s ownership, management, and staff structure are fully locally based, which brings local knowledge and is an added value to the authenticity of the hotel and its connections with the community. We believe that this is a key feature of the authentic experience and a value-add for guests.
Cornaro’s good practices – caring for people and the environment are integrated into the company’s core business and Cornaro’s commitment to local staff and suppliers is highlighting the value of this commitment to guests.
Our entire staff lives in Split or the city’s immediate vicinity. We love helping guests make the most of their stay by offering unique insights into the city and region’s hidden gems. The majority of our staff have worked in the hotel since opening with high satisfaction rates. We are motivated and committed to delivering an excellent local and professional guest experience.
Our local staff and local supplier policies mean that we support a large number of households and the local economy every year. In other words, staying with Cornaro Hotel not only ensures an exceptional holiday or business experience but also benefits local communities that are gladly at guest’s disposal and are creating Cornaro Destination Experience.
By sourcing our suppliers locally we make our offer fresher, more environmentally friendly, support the community, and to be honest, whether you care about the above reasons or not, it’s now so trendy, that we felt obliged to make an attempt to comply.
With this attitude, we also support the idea of visitors as temporary residents, instead of as a tourist. As a resident, you are a part of the community and you contribute to it. The shift here is that the whole tourism industry can help visitors add value to the community, instead of asking permanent residents to exchange their quality of life for money. Emphasizing the importance of local to the visitors, we help create tourism which is based on the quality of life of the residents, for a better future for all of us.
Through this attitude and our work, we:
• Support safe destination
• Support green destination
• Support the idea of improving the guest’s destination’s experience
• Target and emphasize local identity and tradition
• Attract new target visitors and markets (for example: developing travel and work remotely destination standards and offer)
• Help develop MICE destination programs and green MICE concept
• Encourage sharing moments and experiences
• Encourage repeated visit
• Support quality and standards diversification
In this new travel landscape, Cornaro remains committed to reimagining the hotel experience – going beyond cleanliness to consider the entire hotel journey. Guided by creativity and care, Cornaro’s path forward is about reigniting the joy of travel. We relish the opportunity to be part of this new era in travel. Maybe it’ll be a little slower, a little more connected with more time for conversations and connections over a glass of Nikolica Wine.
Our „Love Local“ attitude enriches the travel experience and helps strengthen local communities.
The goal is to make guests feel at home, in a city central location surrounded by a friendly environment of local and international people. To serve amazing food, with incredible, seasonally sourced local ingredients. To create a meaningful connection between our guests and Split’s local community.
Welcome! Let us show you Cornaro Experience and Split city at its best!
