Ksamil is one of the most popular spots on the Albanian Riviera and for good reason. The turquoise waters are studded almost artistically with pretty islands and it can all be admired from your perch on a comfortable beach chair at the waters edge.

Compared to other parts of the riviera Ksamil can be very busy, but if you time your visit right you can experience these world class Albanian beaches without the crowds. Ksamil is a perfect stop on a southern Albania road trip or as a destination on its own.

I recently spent a lot of time in the south of Albania and became well acquainted with Saranda and Ksamil. With so many awesome hotels in Ksamil to choose from, I wrote this blog post to simplify your decision on where to stay.

Searching For The Best Hotels in Ksamil, Albania

There are a huge number of hotels in Ksamil due to it’s growing popularity as a beach side holiday destination, with more hotels being built each year. After visiting Ksamil and getting to know the surroundings, it was clear that while there are many hotel options, not all are as they seem!

When it comes to finding the best location to stay in Ksamil, you can’t really go wrong. Ksamil is considered a village with all of the hotels and apartments within short walking distance to the beach.

I have selected some of the best accommodation options in town so you can browse the best hotels in Ksamil and select the right one for your budget and preferences.

There are many accommodation options along the main road of Ksamil and while some of these aren’t bad, there is quite a steep slope down to the beach and the road can be busy. For the most part I have selected each Ksamil hotel to ensure a great location close to the beach and other amenities.

I haven’t included prices as they will vary throughout the year so the categories are based on average prices and relative to the other options. Keep in mind that the most expensive time of year to book a hotel in Ksamil is during the summer months of June – August.

This coincides with the time of year when crowds are at capacity on the beaches. Aim to visit Ksamil during shoulder season (May or September) to avoid the masses and make the most of your holiday in Albania.
