After a busy few days exploring Split and Plitvice National Park we were ready for some pool days – some serious just give me a cocktail and let me read my book kind of days.
And we had picked a fabulous hotel to do just that: Falksteiner Hotel Adriana, Zadar. A real gem of an adults only hotel nestled among the Falksteiner resort.

I’ll tell you all about the hotel itself and our suite in a separate post, but I wanted to show you the utter bliss that is the pool first!
After a late breakfast we would take a lazy stroll across to the pool, park ourselves and our towels, beach bags and assorted books and settled in for a really relaxing day.

At various points throughout the day the staff bring complimentary bottles of water and fruit for everyone to nibble on and re-hydrate; a touch that I really liked.

Also there’s no need to worry about not getting a sun lounger as there seemed to be more than enough, even though the hotel was fully booked when we stayed.

Now, just look at that beauty, and let me take you on a little tour of the pool…

You arrive from the hotel to find this exquisite T shaped pool, surrounded by sun loungers, both in the shade and in the sun, and all complete with parasols.

On one side of the pool are three water jets, spraying water once every few minutes. They make a pretty great place to get a back massage or just to try and see how long you can stand up for!

The other side of the pool has an in-built Jacuzzi, the edges of which you can just see in this photo:

The perfect place for a cool down before you reheat in the sun with a cocktail and a book (or in my case a Kindle as I read viciously fast)!

Beside the Jacuzzi there’s a long underwater bench that also has water jets; if you’re feeling brave I found it was a great place to read when I was addicted to my book but it was too hot to sit out of the pool!

The pool closes at 7pm; soon before this we’d slip up to our room to shower, change and enjoy some sparkling wine on the balcony before dinner. A pretty perfect set up if you ask me.

I couldn’t resist attempting to stand underneath these jets more than once – to varying degrees of success!

Okay, so I wasn’t great at keeping my balance!

So I’d usually  retire to the Jacuzzi to enjoy some more relaxing bubbles!

We honestly spent hours and hours by the pool, sunning ourselves, relaxing and enjoying the heat.

Also, this bikini is now my favourite in my wardrobe: it’s such a flattering cut and it’s a really fun pattern and shape. Best bit? I’ve got you a 15% discount if you use the code FABCOLLAB15 on Khongboon Swimwear – you’ll love them!

It seems as though I’ve taught Andy to be a sly photographer when I’m not watching!

The best bit about an adults only resort is that it was so peaceful: although there is a family resort right next door, the atmosphere is entirely different, with a really relaxed vibe throughout the hotel and pool area.

I think you can tell how happy and relaxed I was even after a couple of hours at Hotel Adriana!

Our stay at Hotel Falksteiner Adriana and my Khongboon bikini were complimentary in return for my reviews, but all opinions, photographs are my own.
