Albanian Riviera voted the Top Value Destination for 2012 according to Frommer’s

Travel guide Frommer´s has declared the Albanian Riviera as the Top Value Destination for 2012 according to its editors, authors, and experts from around the world.

Unveiling their list of top travel destinations for next year, the experts at Frommer’s also polled readers to find out where they wanted to visit in 2012 with the beautiful Albanian Riviera emerging as a winner.

The list which included something for everyone, from large cities, to quiet beach towns and riverside homes highlighted Albania as having all the natural attractions of its Croatian counterpart in the north but without the large crowds and high prices.

Ravin Maharajah, Partner of Lalzit Bay Resort & Spa, the 5* luxury residential development located on Albania’s Adriatic coastline comments,


“Albania’s coastline is quite simply its greatest asset with 295km of Adriatic coastline that runs from Montenegro down to Greece.


“Albania is full of gleaming white beaches, easily among the most beautiful in Europe. Within it lies a rich history and a land of legends and ancient civilizations. It is a nation where travellers will enjoy authentic traditions and cuisines, as well as a friendly welcome.”


With a 200% increase in tourists visiting the Balkan nation between January and August this year compared to numbers in 2008 as well as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicting strong economic growth of 3.5% in Albania for 2012, the country is not only beginning to get the attention it so rightly deserves but is creating a favourable climate for foreign and domestic business as well as those on the lookout for property.

With this in mind, the 5* Lalzit Bay Resort & Spa can provide the perfect property investment opportunity for as little as €38,000 for a luxury apartment on a beach-front resort.


This stunning property development, recently voted ‘Project of the Year’ at the 2011 RealEx conference in Tirana recently for its high quality infrastructure and strong commitment to the environment will provide outstanding on-site facilities including a beach club, BBQ area, tennis courts and restaurants.
