The Malta Marriott Hotel & Spa located in picturesque Balluta, St. Julian’s is to open in January, following a EUR 30M renovation investment.
Located just a 20-minute drive from the island’s capital Valletta, the European capital of culture city, the hotel is the perfect escape, sitting over a sandy beach and tranquil seafront promenade within the bustling, cosmopolitan town of St. Julian’s.
Malta Marriott Hotel & Spa general manager Alex Incorvaja said: “Following this extensive renovation and upgrade to all rooms, restaurants, and bars, we are thrilled to be opening our doors to guests this winter, positioning ourselves as one of Malta’s leading 5-star properties.
By being part of Marriott International’s leading global travel program Bonvoy, the hotel and of course the destination itself will be exposed on an incredible worldwide platform, accessible to over 110 million loyal members.”
The contemporary designed hotel will have 301 rooms — including 25 Club Rooms, 29 Suites and a 150 sqm Presidential Suite with views of Balluta Bay — as well as a variety of restaurants & bars, indoor and outdoor pools, a fully-equipped spa & fitness centre, and dedicated conference facilities.
When it comes to dining the hotel will have five restaurants and three bars, including its signature restaurant Taro housed at The Villa, a 19th-century palazzo adjacent to the hotel’s grounds, overlooking the bay.
“An ideal destination for business or leisure”
Elizabeth Lane – a partner at RPW Design, the firm responsible for the look of the hotel’s interior, said: “It has been a privilege and really exciting working with the team on the renovation and rebranding of the hotel. Inspired by the heritage of Balluta Bay we have woven the traditional crafts of Malta throughout the design in a contemporary way. Giving the hotel a real sense of place while looking to the future. It will be an ideal destination for business or leisure or a combination of both”.
