Iva Tomlinovic, as the third generation chef runs this family business for 20 years now, together with her husband Renato. Their wanderlust gastronomic souls found each other and devoted their lives making exceptional dishes with great love and passion. A pinch of love and a great sense for business is all it takes to make this culinary affair work. Before them, her mother and father ran the business for over 40 years, and prior to that, her father's uncle and his wife (ZOrko & RIta – that's where the name ZORI comes from) were the first generation of the family to begin the Zori story on the Pakleni Islands, in 1947.
Driven by their desire to offer to all of those who seek a special and memorable vacation experience, specially tailored to their specific needs, in 2022 they decided to expand and create four superbly decorated boutique residences, right next to Zori restaurant and evolve the Zori brand into new Zori Timeless concept.
ZORI TIMELESS HOTEL is a unique place where untouched, stunning natural surroundings of Vinogradišće bay / Palmižana meet a unique dining experience and unforgettable venue.
"To us, Zori represents our heritage, our purpose and our passion, a place where we can bring ideas to life. To our guests, this is a place where they enjoy with all their senses, create special memories and year after year return to make new ones. One of the sentences we most often hear from our guests before they leave is - we would like to stay longer." - Iva & Renato Tomlinović
Besides the outstanding food and one of a kind accommodation, what makes Zori Timeless exceptional is its high-quality staff. Perfect mix of personalities and characters brought together as a great team will make you feel special until the time you leave this paradise. Warm and friendly, yet highly skilled employees managed by Iva and Renato, will welcome you with smile and good vibes every time you visit. Many of them are working with us for years so we have become one big family now!
