Eco Certifications

Just as we admire each of our hosts for their singularity, we appreciate that their sustainability journeys are also unique. Because of this, we do not require our hosts to have an eco certification or two under their belt, we simply guide them on improving their sustainable business practices one imperfect – but positive – step at a time. If a host has eco certifications they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

NGOs & Local Impact Projects Supported

Each of our hosts strive to have a positive impact on their local communities. Some of our hosts already have established connections with local partners to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their communities, others are in the process of creating these long term relationships. If a host has local NGO connections they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

What our hosts say..

Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.

You enter Almayer and you just feel the place, it is cosy and at the same time elegant, chic and contemporary. The color palette reflects the dalmatian vibe and the sustainability efforts made by the owners when they reconstructed this place full of history.
Almayer provides you with a whole new experience within the city of Zadar, they’ve got something you can’t find in any other hotel around.  Not only the rooms are outstanding but the facilities are there for you to discover, from a secret garden to a wine bar to local arts exhibitions, everything in the same place!
I would just say, go enjoy it yourself ;)

WE ARE YOUR HOSTS –
Irina & Vjekoslav
and Team

Travelling and discovering the world, side by side, everything led us towards Almayer. Recognizing the potential of a forgotten house and a yard in the heart of this beautiful Dalmatian city, it took us years of planning and restoration until we finally opened the doors to our guests.

The space quickly filled up with Irina’s love of the unusual and special minimalism of seemingly arithmetic details. Vjekoslav’s passion for heritage, nature and the sea, flooded the space with the stories and energy of the Mediterranean. Together, with great love, we’ve created a shelter for curious travelers and experienced connoisseurs.
