Tourism development In the second half of the 19th century, the leaders of the Pirano municipality and local doctors decided to stimulate tourism in the region, by offering health treatment by concentrated salt water and salina mud, and from 1879 onwards dr. Giovanni Lugnano first offerer of such treatment to various visitors. In 1885 after several years of successful start of a new branch of industry, constructions of new complexes and villas began, and in 1890 the predecessor of the famous Hotel Palace was built. Among the new settlers were various prominent figures, such as Antonelli, Dragovina, Furian, Frennez, Langer, Rastelli, Reinlaner and Salvetti. Because of the new branch of healthcare treatment that emerged in ''Porto Rose'', the ministry of interior affairs declared the settlement to be a health resort. In 1908 dr. Orazio Pupini, a prominent Austrian doctor with a noticeable treatment history opened a sanatorium. He was also the main doctor of the Austrian Railways, and a member of the Austrian doctor's Association. In 1902 The Parenzana Railway system was introduced which increased the popularity of the region, but was later dissolved because of decreased interests.thumb left upright 240px Palace Hotel in 1957 (File:Portorož 1957.jpg) In 1909 the era of construction of private villas ended with opening of a much bigger building for standards at the time; the ''Palace Cur Hotel'', later known as Palace Hotel (Palace Hotel, Portorož). At the initial opening ceremony in 1910 the Hotel Palace was already named »the most beautiful hotel on the Adriatic (Adriatic Sea) coast«. The hotel was equipped with most modern therapeutic accessories, and for the needs of high importance guests a casino was built.

In the whole interwar period the settlement was slowly regaining its former glory when the Second World War severely crippled it again. The crisis lasted until 1968 when renovations and new constructions under the new entity of Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) began to take place along the whole region. In this time they began to build the settlement's infrastructure with the casino doing the bulk of the investments in reconstructing the sports airfield (Portorož Airport) in nearby Sečovlje and building the multi-purpose auditorium (Avditorij Portorož) in 1972.
