This chic retreat along Vlora’s south coastline, with sweeping views of the Ionian and the scent of Mediterranean bush ever-present, is the ideal base for a tranquil and luxurious vacation. We know complete serenity can feel impossible to achieve, but Mazarine Hotel&Spa makes it effortless: this elegant stay surrounded by olive trees, with a panoramic infinity pool, a chic restaurant and impeccable sea views, is one of those places that make you want to leave everything and move to a seaside resort. Mazarine deftly celebrates the culture and natural scenery that Vlora’s south coast provides. The hotel, located in front of Radhimë Beach, creates a space where guests can fully succumb to relaxation.
The 42 guest rooms (3 of which are suites) are sprinkled across five grounds, designed with style and elegance, with a choice of mountain or sea views. Every room is paired with contemporary furniture, design elements, floor to ceiling windows, high quality textiles and earthy tones to complement the Mediterranean scenery. There’s something very special about sliding the window each evening to sit in the private balcony and watch the sunset surrounded by trees, listening to a symphony of sounds; wind rustles through the trees, water ripples through the pool, and the relaxing sound of sea waves.
Start your day with a tasty and rich breakfast -a spread of fresh fruit, juices, healthy toasts, pies and spoon desserts. Mazarine’s restaurant is well-known in town for creating unique dishes with a focus on local ingredients, inspired by classical flavors as well as international recipes. The location is a true architecture marvel with hardwood floors, mahogany paneling and elegant details. Dinners are best spent here, where Executive Gabriel Islami takes you through his take on contemporary Mediterranean cuisine. The menu features a selection of sea food dishes, like grilled octopus with hummus, avocado pies with raw scampi and bruschetta with dried tomatoes and anchovies.
There are countless reasons to take a trip to Vlora, from its beaches to its history and culture. Mazarine Hotel&Spa is the perfect spot to experience everything this southern Albanian city has to offer. After a long day of visits in and around Vlora or divings in the Ionian Sea, guests can relax on lounge chairs that hug Mazarine’s infinite pool. Its gorgeous design and lovely views will take your swim to another level. Order a fresh fruit cocktail or a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the sea while relaxing. Soon Mazarine will open one of the best spas in Albania, a calming spot ideal for improving physical and mental health: a place designed to create wellness through aromatherapy, herbal remedies and top quality products.
