New Hotel Chains and Resort Redevelopment in Malta

As hotel renovations and construction continue picking up speed after Covid-19, hoteliers are adjusting their property designs to meet new guest demands that may not have been paramount two years ago.

Melia Hotel International Brand – new international chain in Malta

Each hotel is connected to the destination, becoming the social epicenter of the city and attracting the best of the local cultural scene. Music, art, design, fashion, and gastronomy make up the ME scene to provide visitors with an experience beyond accommodation.

Perfect for enjoying the Maltese breeze and wonderful weather, not only are all of these hotels equipped to host meetings, they also have fully modern rooms with all the amenities guests now expect from a high-quality hotel, such as high-speed internet, USB charging, smart TVs, and a Nespresso coffee machine.

Affiliated by Melia - Hotel Mistral – opened in June 2023

Located in St. Julian's just south of St. George's Bay, the Mistral is a smaller property providing a more intimate setting which is perfect for smaller groups and more modest budgets. The Mistral Rooftop Pool & Bar is situated on the tenth floor and can host up to 50 guests.


Affiliated by Melia - Hotel Scirocco – opened in July 2023

Located in the heart of St. Julian's, the Scirocco is also a great option for smaller events, sporting a pool and rooftop terrace specifically designed for small corporate groups of up to 50 guests.


Affiliated by Melia - Hotel Levante – opened in July 2023

Located right by the main commercial district, right by St. George's Bay and near Spinola Bay, the Levante also provides a more intimate setting and is smaller than the Mistral. Just as the Mistral, however, it also sports an intimate roof top pool and bar area, overlooking yet more fantastic views of the Maltese coast.


ME Residences Malta - ME Malta will be opening its doors in September 2023

The 140 rooms & suites and 48 Residences at ME Malta offer maximum luxury and comfort so that guests can enjoy the essence of the island in a vibrant and modern environment. Its fully equipped rooms and suites have been designed to meet the needs of all guests.

The meeting space includes a ballroom (350 sq m / 3760 sq ft) and five thinking labs, plus the unbeatable gastronomic offering and the personalized attention of the hotel’s events team will ensure that any program, from business conferences to cocktail receptions, will be a success.

Redevelopment of Ramla Bay Resort

The Ramla Bay Resort redevelopment project is now well underway. Located on the Northernmost shore of Malta, by the limits of Mellieha, the hotel started welcoming guests again on March 22, 2023. This redevelopment is ambitious and will become a staple for MICE and other private events taking place in Malta.

The project is expected to be completed by summer 2024 when the hotel will have 600 guest rooms in operation. The hotel will then have three new buildings complementing the existing Atrium Wing. Each building will also feature the distinctive atrium and indoor garden concept that has rapidly become synonymous with the Ramla Bay Resort. The resort will also be equipped with three private meeting rooms, each equipped with the necessary audiovisual equipment, perfect for meetings with speakers, conferences, and other events.


Until then, the hotel will continue to make use of the 200 guest rooms and amenities that are situated in the Atrium Wing, with the addition of all three outdoor swimming pools back in operation.

New Hilton Hotel Opening

Hilton will be opening a fantastic new property directly on the seafront, overlooking stunning sea views and St. Paul’s Island. The hotel is slated to open in June 2024. This 480-guest room, 4-star business hotel will accommodate groups with smaller budgets, while still providing all the essentials for a successful business event, and more.  


Seashells Rebrands to Odycy

Seashells Hotel will be rebranding into Odycy Hotel – a multifaceted hotel and leisure destination dominating the coastline of Qawra, on the Eastern side of Malta. The hotel offers a dedicated conference center with state-of-the-art technology, sound and video equipment. Ideal for speaker seminars, small-scale meetings, or any type of special corporate event, the largest of these halls can accommodate 250-300 people.


A range of modern accommodation options is included in this 4-star hotel, as well as a vast array of food and beverage outlets and entertainment, conference facilities, a water park, and roof terraces. Created by the AX Group with a vision to regenerate this famed seaside resort, it is truly an all-in-one destination, with endless possibilities.


AX ODYCY offers a total of 600 rooms, including a selection of Comfort Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, and Suites. The complex has a total of 11 Food & Beverage outlets offering tons of dining possibilities from crowd-pleasing eateries and family restaurants to à-la-carte dining options.
