Istraturist Umag, Croatia

The Istraturist Resort is a carefully laid out complex with numerous hotels and apartment buildings, offering a good range of accommodation options to its guests.




Istraturist is located on the north-western coast of the Istrian peninsula along the 40 kilometres long Umag Riviera.

Umag’s rise as a popular tourist destination in Croatia should come as no surprise. The scenic Istrian city along the Adriatic Coast holds unmatched beauty and distinction. Due to its location in northwest Croatia, Umag is considered the gateway to Istria from northern Europe and does not fail to impress!


The Umag Tennis Academy is situated at an attractive location in the Katoro Resort and close to the Sol Katoro apartment complex. The tennis centre has 26 tennis courts – 25 clay and one hard court, plus four indoor courts which allow training throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions. Coaching is available from a team of quality instructors.

Tennis Holidays have started hosted weeks to Umag; visit the resort accompanied by a Tennis Holiday representative.


The resort features a range of accommodation, we’ve listed the options which we think will work well for someone using the Academy during their stay. You can choose total relaxation at one of the luxury hotels or you can enjoy the comfortable and fully-equipped apartments in one of the apartment villages.

    The Melia Coral is an excellent ” Adult Only” hotel featuring extensive buffet breakfast and dinner with show cooking. he location is superb for tennis just a short stroll across the hotel car park will take you to the excellent 26 court Umag tennis academy which also features pro shop and a superb restaurant and bar serving local delicacies and an excellent choice of wines. The centre of Umag is 2.5 kms away and can be reached on the “Walley Trolley” which winds its way along the stunning Adriatic coastline into Umag. The tennis academy offer a variety of tennis programmes for adults and children which run 7 days a week. I would definitely recommend having a couple of free days to explore the area as there is so much to see and experience in Istria.

    This was a first rate tennis holiday in all respects. Decent hotel, just over the road from the courts. Excellent coaching: never before heard so much emphasis on ‘follow-through’ – and once you hear about it, you’re never the same again! Best clay courts I have ever played on. Croatia oozes history: as you look out over the wine-dark sea, 2000 years stands at your shoulder.
