Pinia Pool Bar & Lounge forms part of the outdoor swimming pool area of Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel in Mlini bay with the view to sea promenade and park in front. Pinia has a main entrance from the southwest side, from which the main entrance to the bar is organized, with the service entrance on the northwest side for the accompanying sanitary facilities. There are also exits from the bar to the outdoor areas of the terrace and loggia.

The design is planned with a carefully combined use of local traditional and contemporary materials, in order to achieve the specific ambient characteristics of the spatial units. It is ideal place to relax under the pine trees, revel, explore Mediterranean flavours and soak up the laid-back vibes.

Bar lounge is the central interior area room with a bar counter and high table seating, open to the VIP loggia and the terrace under the pines. Also connected to the Show kitchen with visually exposed pastry vitrine and food preparation counters. VIP loggia is an open covered area with a sea view, designed for separate groups of guests in a more private mode of use.

Terrace under the pines

Terrace under the pines is the main outdoor space for guests in the shade of the trees and canvas sails, with a platform raised above the natural terrain to the level of the Bar lounge's interior floor. Esplanade is an outdoor area, located towards the promenade with a sea view, at the level of the natural terrain. Terrace in the north-western part next to the building is shaded by a pergola with Mediterranean climbing plants and textile coverings. Thus, different ambiental zones are achieved for various groups of users.
