Radisson Collection Morina Hotel, Tirana brings the Radisson hospitality experience to Albania for the first time.
The luxury lifestyle Radisson Collection brand is now providing a luxurious stay in the country’s capital as the first international luxury chain hotel to open in Tirana.
Entry to Albania
The new-build Radisson Collection Morina Hotel, Tirana is now hosting guests just outside the Albanian capital’s city centre and adjacent to the Grand Park of Tirana in Sauk.
This hotel featuring bespoke neoclassical design elements by Italian architects Cross Design is a part of a new development on Dry Lake.
During their stay, guests can get to know the city named European Youth Capital for 2022 that is also known for its prime location overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Mediterranean climate and museums, as well as streets and squares lined with colourful buildings.
“Tirana is the next new exciting destination in Eastern Europe and has recently grown in popularity thanks to its grand boulevards lined with fascinating vestiges of its Ottoman, Italian, and communist past,” said Loreta Xhebraj, general manager of the hotel.
“We’re delighted to welcome our guests to Radisson Collection Morina Hotel, Tirana – the perfect base to discover the city.”
A luxurious hospitality experience
The hotel houses 49 rooms and suites spanning eight floors. The luxurious interiors of this property pair soothing white, ivory and brown tones with Italian-made furniture and decorative references to the neoclassical style. All rooms feature a balcony overlooking Dry Lake.
The most luxurious accommodation within the property is the one-bedroom Presidential Suite with a large living room, walk-in closet and bespoke furnishings.
During their stay, guests can dine at the all-day dining restaurant offering lake views and serving Mediterranean-inspired dishes alongside traditional Albanian specialties. The first-floor bar then provides light snacks as well as drinks, with the rooftop lounge bar offering coffee by day and drinks with snacks each evening.
Additional facilities in the hotel include two swimming pools, a pool bar by the outdoor pool, a full-service spa and hair and nail salon. Amenities within the spa encompass a sauna, steam room, salt room and jacuzzi. Events will be hosted in a meeting room for up to 100 people.
