Nesteld in the village of Dhërmi -just a 40 minutes’ drive south of Vlora– this hotel is the perfect base for a weekend, or a few days more, along the Albanian Riviera. Natural light, neutral palette of colours, a lush garden and spacious rooms with private balconies overlooking the sea: Hotel Orange Dhërmi offers guests an off-grid abode in which to relax and recharge.
There are 34 rooms (including 1 suite) to choose from, spanning from family accommodations to double intimate rooms. All are spacious, with private bathrooms and balconies overlooking Ionian Sea, designed with elegant furniture, comfortable and big beds. The big windows offer a complete immersion in nature. Open them up to allow a cooling sea breeze to drift through the room at night, then, come morning, wake to the sound of birdsong.
FOOD & DRINKS
A seasonal breakfast spread is served in the restaurant room and leafy outdoor garden, surrounded by bougainvillea flowers and plants. Try petulla with local honey, yoghurt, fruits and fresh cheeses that melts in your mouth. Both the lunch and dinner menus are geared around what’s been plucked from the sea that day. Expect fresh seafood, grilled meats and tasty salads made of the freshest vegetables you’ll try. Coffee and cocktails are dished out from morning to evening at the lounge bar.
Nature and outdoors are the greatest amenities here. You can spend the day soaking up the sun in the beaches of Dhërmi and Drimadhes or visit the ancient villages along the coast, like Dhërmi itself. This soulful small town with a Mediterranean spirit is just a 10-minute drive car that weaves along olive fields starting from Hotel Orange Dhërmi. A visit here includes a mandatory stop to the orthodox Monastery of Saint Mary, on the top of the hill, for the best views over the sea. Once back to the hotel, enjoy your free time reading a book beneath the trees and relax.
