Helping people and being Social Responsible

Tourism is a fast growing industry and a valuable sector, contributing significantly to the Albanian economy. Tourism affects the economy and lives of communities and has proven to be a lifesaver for the economy of Albania.
Realizing the importance of cooperation with other actors such as local government and local community, we at Theranda Hotel have never stopped being sensible on the issues such as friendliness towards the environment and the local community. We are proud act upon our principles and hope that other businesses would follow, in protecting the environment and improving the quality of life for the local communities.
During the 3 years of activity in Tirana we have, not only minimized the negative impact by reducing the chlorine, detergent and water use or by being energy efficient through the use of solar power but we have invested considerably in improving the local surroundings, which are not part of our property.
The entire local community knows and recognizes the investments made by Theranda Hotel which consist in:

  • The repair, cleaning  and maintenance of waste water
  • Disposal of waste water










  •  Full removal and disposal of  debris accumulated in the road behind the hotel, caused by the irresponsibility of certain residents. Laying of gravel on the cleared space, creating a more relaxed and enjoyable environment not only for the residents of the hotel but for the nearby residents as well

After
  •  We connected underground the discharge pipes of waste water (at the building facing the parking area) which were on the surface and which among others seriously damaging the people and building itself.

  • Filling the potholes of the road in the parking of the local residents and the road in front of Theranda
