KEP MERLI introduces Albania's First Luxury Resort

Kep Merli Resort and Residence, Albania’s first 5 Star Resort and Residences, is striving to give Albanian tourism a new image. The site has big plans to construct an innovative architectural marvel that is committed to using only the highest standards of amenities and services to create a hallmark of excellence in hospitality and eco-travel. The project is also seen as laying a template for how Albanian tourism, one of the country’s biggest industries, could develop. The two Hotels which are the centerpiece of the Resort, currently under construction are expected to welcome guests by 2024.

Kep Merli Resort’s 28-acres of land are tucked between the Albanian coastal towns of Saranda and Ksamil, 2 miles to the north of the Greek island of Corfu, sharing the pristine sea waters of the Ionian Sea. The resort’s ecological approach to architecture and design underscores its dedication to sustainability and eco-tourism. A low construction density of 12% has guaranteed a minimal impact on the landscape. All of the constructed buildings have only one storey protruding above ground level allowing for a minimal visual impact at the time of completion. At these minimal heights (about 2m above ground) all residences and hotels could be easily hidden behind the extensive amount of planted trees throughout the Kep Merli’s project construction lifetime. Special attention has been paid to the technology and systems which allow the structures to perform efficiently over the years with low maintenance costs , waste and carbon emissions. As of summer 2020 Kep Merli Resort

and Residence is welcoming guests with a choice of residing in one of their exclusive private luxury villas. The collection of residential villas offers extensive space and privacy to provide guests with the ultimate

sense of serenity and seclusion. All accommodations encompass floor-toceiling windows with spectacular vistas of the sea and evening celestial dance of colors from sunset till dusk.
