The tourist story of the Keko family begins back in 1961 when Frane Keko and his wife Matija started receiving tourists in their small family house. Two years later, in 1963, Anton, Fran’s son, took over the business with his wife Slavica, and this family began to take tourism more seriously. They soon completed the house and built a respectable job in the golden 80s of the last century. Since 2015, the third generation of the Keko family, Christian and his wife Vlatko, has taken over the business and put the business in the company, raising everything to a higher level by investing in facilities such as swimming pools, receptions and more stars.
Today, Classic Guest House gets a new, more modern name “ARBIUM” which is one of the historical names for Rab. Together with House Limoni, we offer accommodation in 13 accommodation units, in 7 apartments and 6 rooms. In addition to a superb breakfast, guests have at their disposal Caffeteria, Cocktail bar, and a restaurant with well-known pizzas and grilled dishes. A boarding house and a la carte restaurant within the Arbium Guest House will soon be on offer.
Arbium Classic Guest House is a place where guests feel at home and the employees are what makes the difference between Arbium and other houses on the island. This is an ideal place for those who are looking for quality service and accommodation for a good price and do not like large hotels. All guests have secured parking, a small marina for boats, a reception service, an outdoor pool with sunbathing area and a pool bar. There are a sufficient number of sun loungers and parasols, a garden lounge, a garden grill, toilets and a breakfast terrace. All rooms and apartments are air conditioned, have TV and refrigerator, terrace or balcony, bathroom and toilet, safe and hairdryer. The apartments have a fully equipped kitchen block and a dining area. Arbium Classic Guest House is open all year round as a small family hotel.
In the summer months, within a few hundred meters, there are good restaurants, bars, a shop, a gas station and a smaller beach. Accommodation facilities are located only 40m from the sea, House Limoni, and 60 m from the sea Arbium guest house. We are 4 km away from the town of Rab and we recommend a ferry line that for small money transports tourists to the port of Rab and back by waterway. There are also taxi boats for those who want a greater experience of freedom and privacy. Arbium Guest House also offers its guests the rental of road scooters. When paying for all services, guests can choose between cash and card payments. We also issue an R1 invoice for business guests.
CLASSIC Cocktail Bar is the oldest private cocktail bar in the Republic of Croatia, opened in 1992. It is located on the seafront along the promenade and 80 m from the accommodation facility. In the summer months in our bar you can enjoy music events, performances by local and foreign musicians, and on “ordinary” days our DJ will take care of the good atmosphere. We wish all our guests a pleasant stay and a wonderful holiday in our accommodation and catering facilities.
