About our story and trademark

LifeClass Hotels & Spa Portorož is the first Slovenian international hotel chain. Today, it comprises six hotels; the first one to take the name of LifeClass into the world was Grand Hotel Palace (today Grand Hotel Portorož), in 2004. In Croatia, the LifeClass trademark is managed by the Sveti Martin resort. In the Slovenian market, LifeClass Portorož is the trademark of Istrabenz Turizem d.d.

Despite its rather recent establishment, our hotel chain has a rich history and tradition. Its origins date far back, to 1891. At the time, it was a hotel company that arranged the first spa and baths in Portorož and built the first hotel – Kurhotel Palace (old Hotel Palace). The latter is still a widely recognised symbol of Portorož.

So, tourism in Portorož started to bloom. The beneficent Mediterranean climate, and salt and seawater attracted a number of explorers who travelled around the globe discovering its wonders.
