  • maybe the only hotel worldwide with a co-manager from the Roma community
  • the most eco-friendly hotel in Kosovo, and the only one with its own sewage treatment plant
  • the hotel with the best view and the best home cooking anywhere near Pristina
  • perfectly located for exploring Kosovo, with major attractions and Pristina close by and all towns of Kosovo reachable within max. 1 1/2 hours

Pack for a Purpose

Social Responsibility

  • We built the hotel with local companies and craftsmen and as far as possible with local materials.
  • In construction and interior design, we chose eco-friendly and long-lasting materials wherever feasible.
  • We use geothermal energy from eleven 110 m deep drill holes for heating and cooling, and our pool has solar heating.
  • We have our own sewage treatment plant and use the recycled wastewater as well as collected rainwater for gardening.
  • We recycle all waste that can be recycled.
  • Where feasable, we buy our fruit, vegetables, dairy products and meat mostly from local small farmers, favoring those who produce organically and raise animals humanely. All our eggs and chicken meat come from free range chicken.
  • We employ people from all ethnic communities and pay them salaries considerably above average.
  • A fountain with our mineral water, which is said to prevent heart burn and heal even chronic gastritis, is placed next to the entrance of the hotel accessible to all.
  • Through Pack for a Purpose, we support  The Ideas Parnership Learning Center for Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian (click here to find out how you can help by using spare space in your suitcase to bring supplies!).
