Stunning Design Hotel opens in Malta

European Capital of Culture for 2018 and listed by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the hottest destinations to visit this year, Malta has a brand-new boutique design hotel to add to its growing list of charms.

Against a backdrop of historical fortress walls in the fortified city of Senglea on the South-eastern part of the Mediterranean island, the all-suite Cugó Gran Macina Grand Harbour is ideal for small high-end incentives.

Originally built in 1554, the landmark structure that now houses the hotel’s expansive 21 suites — all with unobstructed views of a magnificent harbour and surrounding marina — is home to high-vaulted ceilings; chalk-white walls, limestone, and slate; and an amazing, large rooftop that is perfect for events and receptions.

There’s also a pool offering breath taking views that extend as far as the city of Valletta, while Cugó Gran’s restaurant, manned by the renowned Chris Hammett, serves Maltese cuisine with an international twist.

All 21 suites are luxurious in size and appearance, ranging from 40 to 70 square metres. Elegant and comfortable, the suites are equipped with Milano sofa beds, large living rooms and bedrooms, and impressive mezzanines that float above custom-crafted bathrooms. Finishing touches by Tom Dixon and Flos & Louis Paulson sit with hand-tufted wool rugs, and Scandinavian and Italian furniture resides alongside locally-build custom pieces. The duplex Senglea Suite and the Presidential Suite — at up to 120 and 140 square meters, respectively — both feature a terrace, while the latter also boasts a kitchenette and two bedrooms.

Part of the Three Cities, which also include Birgu and Cospicua, Senglea is a haven of historical churches, palaces and forts. Facing a recently renovated promenade, the hotel is within walking distance of the forthcoming American University of Malta and flagship yachts, such as the Maltese Falcon, which moor at the marina.

The Birgu waterfront is a hive of nightlife, with restaurants, bistros, and cafés all set on the water’s edge, while the city itself is home to several wine bars, as well as national museums, such as the Maritime Museum, Inquisitors Palace, and the historical Fort St. Angelo.
