Yes, Albania is generally a very safe destination for tourists. The locals enjoy sharing their culture with people from all over the world and are very excited to be known for the wellness aspects the country provides. When traveling anywhere new, it is important to leave high-value items at home and not to leave required valuables (ie passport or phone) unattended. You will have access to guides and translators for the majority of your stay.
You will find that the weather in Albania is pleasant year-round. The late Spring- Summer months are ideal for swimming, walking, exploring, and being outside, but can get very hot. We will be traveling at the beginning of the hot season and the sun should be milder. There is very little rainfall during this time, but the retreat experts have plenty of backup plans and the ability to move days around in case of inclement weather.
All your meals, accommodation, and transport will be covered during your journey with us, including airport transfers to and from Tirana’s International Airport.
Additionally, your luxurious handmade slippers, yacht exploration, all fitness and yoga classes, one full body massage, and facial are all included.
We do not include airfare nor facilitate airfare booking (though we are open to giving you tips and suggestions). On the first day, we provide dinner, but if you arrive earlier, you will have to cover those expenses. Likewise, on the last day of the trip, we provide breakfast, but if you depart later, you will have to cover those expenses.
We do not cover other items getting to Albania like passport fees, Covid-19 test if applicable, insurance packages, vaccinations, etc. We do not cover such in-country costs like items you want to buy or alcohol. There will be an ATM at the first location if you want to shop the local bazaar or to have money for extra snacks on our pit stops. Don’t worry though—you will be well-fed!
Each retreat will offer 12-15 rooms. Some rooms will be shared, but there is a maximum of 22 people. It is more likely we will have 12-16 people per retreat.
We create an inclusive environment where everyone can enjoy the experiences designed and embrace the journey together. Certain experiences such as massage and the mindset session with Bailey will be private. Experiences such as the yoga dome classes will be in small groups. Hikes and boating will be with the group as a whole.
In order to reserve a spot, we need an initial deposit, per person, which is $1000. From there, we will contact you on a payment plan for the remaining amount to be paid by April 14th 2023.
No need to worry! We are able to move activities around to accommodate in the case of rainy weather. We have already set backup plans for every experience, so all you have to do is show up and enjoy.
