Maritim manages a new seaside resort

Since June, the Maritim Rafaelo Resort located in the heart of the popular tourist region of Lezha has officially opened its doors: “Many regular customers have loved the 5-star hotel in the region for years. That is why we are happy to have this prestigious hotel in our portfolio under the Maritim brand,” explains Peter Wennel, Managing Director of Hotel Management Services (HMS) GmbH. As a subsidiary, HMS has been responsible for the foreign activities of the Maritim Hotelgesellschaft for more than 15 years.

The new Maritim Rafaelo Resort is located in the northwest of Albania, directly by the sea along a long, flat beach, which is particularly suitable for beach lovers with children. The nearby area offers a wide choice of options for going out and nightlife.

The resort is made up of three building sections with a total of 627 elegant rooms and suites, six restaurants and three bars, two spa and fitness centers as well as outdoor and indoor swimming pools. During the winter months between November and April, only the Deluxe section of the building is open, offering a restaurant and bar as well as a spa, fitness center, and indoor pool.

Facilities further include 2,000 square meters of event and conference space that can accommodate up to 650 people in the largest room, available year-round.

Albania is becoming more and more popular as a holiday region: “A decade ago, Montenegro, Croatia’s neighbor on the Mediterranean coast, presented itself as a travel destination. Today you can find the country in almost every package holiday catalog. Albania, a neighbor to the south, would like to do the same. Four hundred kilometers of sea coast with wide sandy beaches, a multitude of historic buildings and the bustling capital of Tirana – the potential is there”, says Peter Wennel to illustrate the advantages of the region. “We can recommend Albania to beach lovers as well as sight-seeing and culture-loving travellers,” adds the industry expert.

The Maritim Rafaelo Resort is easily accessible and is an hour’s drive from Tirana International Airport. You can already book a stay on

There are already two Maritim hotels in Albania, which are operated under franchise: the certified 5-star Maritim Hotel Plaza Tirana, offering a central location in the capital Tirana, as well as the 4-star Maritim Resort Marina Bay, in the coastal city of Vlora on the so-called “Albanian Riviera”. Albania’s second international airport is currently under construction in Vlora, and from 2025 around three million passengers a year will be able to arrive and depart.
