Job Description
Against a backdrop of historical fortress walls blended with bespoke interior design and luxury features, this luxurious boutique hotel, opening its doors soon will truly be a hotel with a difference, offering 21 suites ranging from 40 square metres to an impressive 130 square metres, having unobstructed views of the Grand Harbour and the surrounding marina.

The suites have been designed with the discerning traveller in mind, having all amenities available in-room. Extravagant free standing baths and walk-in showers, make the stay all the more comfortable in a historic yet luxurious setting.

The hotel will also offer guests a swimming pool, tucked discreetly on the rooftop of the annex building with a terrace overlooking the picturesque view of Vittoriosa and Cospicua.
