In 2003 Michael and Valda from Australia were based in London working, they by accident visited Split on a vacation where they fell in love with the city, before leaving Split they purchased a five-story building in the old town of, Varos. Walking distance to the palace.
Parts of their building purchase date back to the 3rd century and was the first Roman kitchen built to feed the Roman workers building Diocletian’s Palace while other parts of the building go back to 900 AD making it 1100 years old. It is very much in the heart of the old town and an important part if Splits History.
Michael and Valda got into the spirit of Split and named the hotel Zephyrus, this name is Greek for ‘’A GENTLE BREEZE FROM THE WEST’’ and reflects the heritage of split and the new direction and influence the building would take moving forward.
The building was completely renovated (inside) in 2004 from the ground up, keeping the original walls and exterior, maintaining the heritage of the building whilst offering contemporary and modern facilities that are expected with its 4-star rating.
We always wanted to present a small piece of comfort and luxury in the heart of the old town, and in summer, 2005, Zephyrus was open for business. Our philosophy has always been to provide high quality accommodation at a reasonable price with friendly and great service.
Your host, Antonija is an integral part of Zephyrus and is there to help make your stay enjoyable and a memorable experience of Split.
We ask you enjoy our wonderful facility and city and return often, we are there to ensure your stay is a true and positive experience, Antonija, Valda & Michael
