Set against a backdrop of historical fortress walls, Design Hotels‘ luxury five-star all-suite Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour hotel has now officially opened its doors in Malta’s famous fortified city, Senglea.
Located just five miles from Valletta, the European Capital of Culture for 2018, and just four miles from Malta International Airport, Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour is Malta’s must stay new resort.
Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour is a centrepiece of the Cottonera Regeneration Project that has also recently seen the transformation of the Vittoriosa waterfront, which the hotel overlooks.
Juxtaposing the old with the new, the design of Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour was overseen by Maltese architect Edwin Mintoff in conjunction with Milanese Interior Design firm Daaa Haus.
Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour’s luxurious minimalist design preserves original historic features to blend natural and traditional materials with modern, clean lines.
The architecture incorporates glass and natural light to throw relief on the high vaulted ceilings, chalk-white walls, limestone, and slate in the large communal areas.
The stylish and comfortable 21 suites range from 40 square metres to 130 square metres and all offer unobstructed views of the Grand Harbour and the surrounding marina.
The suites feature large living rooms and bedrooms, Milano sofa beds, free-standing baths and walk-in showers.
The two signature suites – the Macina Suite and the Presidential Suite – each have 130 square metres of living space, a bathtub with a view, and kitchenettes. The Presidential Suite also has a spectacular harbour terrace.
A rooftop pool offers breath-taking views of Vittoriosa and Cospicua, extending as far as the city of Valletta.
With complete privacy guaranteed, guests may choose to take part in various seasonal activities on offer such as aqua gym, yoga and pilates.
Exclusive appointments with personal trainers can also be arranged, in addition to in-room spa treatments.
The 930 square metre rooftop terrace overlooking the Three Cities can accommodate events for up to 1,000 guests, and is ideal for weddings, special events and corporate functions.
Hammett’s Macina Restaurant (opening 22 February) will be run by the renowned Chef and Restaurateur, Chris Hammett, and will serve Maltese cuisine with an international twist.
The hotel also has a bar and café, and a boardroom for small conferences.
