Balkanalysis on Twitter Briefing with Lalzit Bay Resort & Spa, March 2011

Skopje, Macedonia– On March 15, 2011 Director Chris Deliso conducted a briefing with a UK-based luxury property development team, led by Sales Director Ravin Maharajah.

Representing the in-construction Lalzit Bay Resort and Spa, located on a previously unknown sheltered, sandy bay north of Durres in Albania, the team was visiting Macedonia as part of a regional tour building awareness about the project and the exclusive luxury apartments and suites that are now being reserved by future buyers.

Through conversation and a video presentation of the project, the development team made the case for Lalzit Bay as an unknown gem located in the increasingly popular destination of Albania,  for numerous interested buyers in Skopje (and, a day earlier, in the western town of Gostivar as well).

In the briefing, Mr Maharajah discussed the history of the project, emphasizing the helpfulness of the Albanian government in green-lighting the development, while also providing insight into the project’s core financing, target buyers, legal and environmental issues, and the factors that have gone into a noticeable improvement in Albania’s perceived desirability as a vacation or second-home destination internationally.

Designed by renowned international architects WoodsBagot, the gated, secure resort is characterized by the harmonious relation between structures and open spaces, and will feature a variety of top-shelf amenities in the hotel, spa, and activities.

Situated some 30km north of the city of Durres, it is close to Tirana’s international airport and easily accessible by both local and international visitors.
