Join us on an imaginative and transformational 7-night, 8-day journey in Albania as we whisk away into the Albanian Riviera and explore culture, wellness, and balanced life.
We’re starting off in Kruje where we’ll explore the traditions of this beautiful mountain village. Nestled in the foothills of the Albanian Alps, you will feel the unmistakable charm of the old bazaar featuring a cobblestone path and cute little shops where you can find antiques and handmade accessories. A boutique-style hotel, the only one in the castle itself, features the craftsmanship of Albania where we will stay for the night. This will be where we host our traditional welcome dinner. Wait until you taste the flavors of Albania!
The next morning, we will get to explore handmade textiles with options to make our own slippers before saying our goodbyes to whisk our way along the coast to Dhermi, the Stoney small town nestled between mountains and the sea.
The drive down in itself is Instagram-worthy, as we travel through mountains and sea-line. We’ll make a stop in Vlore to breathe and experience the cliffy beach where the water is as clear as glass. We will rest and eat nutritious meals overlooking the sea.
Continuing on our way through the scenic views of Albania, we will arrive in Dhermi: our luxury boutique home for the week. Your room will be surrounded with years-old stone that sets perfectly into its corner of the mountains overlooking the Illyrian Sea. Your soul will feel at peace as we provide experiences that connect you with yourself and the environment. Private dining with a view, yoga, and other mat classes set as high as the clouds, hiking in the fresh air in the untouched earth, breathing exercises, and personalized massages are only a few of the ways you will submerge yourself in the renewing qualities of this retreat.
Beaches for days, we will have plenty of options for enjoying the salty seaside.
Hiking for all levels will be the perfect opportunity to feel the beauty of the mountains with a view of the sea. We’ll use this opportunity to explore and awaken the nomad inside of you.
A covered platform on the beach will be the relaxation hub for our yoga dome experience. This outdoor gem will house our energetic yogi experience for all levels options including breath work and meditation with local instructors.
The entire wellness retreat will be immersive, imaginative, and inspiring. The trip is all-inclusive, leaving you free of decisions and stress-free. From private transit, and endless locally sourced foods, to luxurious boutique, stays, you will feel nothing short of the hospitality Albania is known for.
You can expect an exploration of 3 cities up the coast of Albania, wellness classes and rituals, traditional delicacies, and hands-on immersions. You will leave feeling a new sense of connection to yourself and a newly inspired path for you to keep with you once you return home.
