International hotel group Maritim Hotels has opened new properties in Europe – Maritim Hotel Paradise Blue Albena in Bulgaria has a firm focus on sustainability with its own biofuel facility and Maritim Hotel Plaza Tirana is Albania’s first officially certified 5-star hotel.
Focus on sustainability in Bulgaria
