Situated in one of Malta’s most historic areas

Located on the headland with the “three cities” that reach deep into the Grand Harbour area, guests will be able to immerse themselves in Malta’s rich history. You can visit the world-famous Fort St. Angelo, a site of strategic importance and heroic defense during the 1565 Turkish attack. Today, Birgu, with its historic name “Vittoriosa” meaning “the victorious one,” is a vibrant area filled with locals, artists, and charming cafés. Guests can also experience the town’s historical richness, especially vivid when residents illuminate the historic squares and buildings with soft candlelight. 

Services at the hotel 

The hotel will include a restaurant and bar – Captains of the Galleys, honoring the rich history of the distinguished building. Nestled within the luxurious hotel, Captains of the Galleys will offer an intimate dining experience in a casual atmosphere. Guests will be able to immerse themselves in a culinary journey as our talented chefs craft exquisite dishes inspired by the flavors of Malta and beyond, while our skilled bartenders concoct signature cocktails to tantalize taste buds. Whether you’re seeking a romantic dinner or a lively evening with friends, Captains of the Galleys promises an unforgettable gastronomic experience amidst an ambiance of elegance and charm. 

And if you’re looking for a journey of relaxation and renewal Sanus per Aquam, the luxurious spa sanctuary nestled within Cugó Gran Vittoriosa is where you need to be. Our spa will redefine the traditional concept, offering an alternative to the technical, overly colorful LED spas commonly found elsewhere. Inspired by the folk-etymological definition of a spa, “sanus per aquam,” our sanctuary sets the mood for a truly immersive experience. 

Designed as an interpretation of an archetypal hammam, the spa’s sculpted volume exudes timeless elegance, drawing from the influences of Petra, Jordan, and ancient Rome. Unlike ornate spas of the Arabic world, we embrace simplicity with materials like hard stone, wood, and braided fabric, complemented by techniques for a seamless, distraction-free atmosphere. Our sandstone and mud-colored envelope is adorned with lush greenery, creating a verdant oasis that harmonizes with light-colored furnishings. 

Guests can immerse themselves in serenity as they relax in our pool with invigorating jets, soothing away tension and fatigue or indulge in the sensory delights of our experience shower, where cascading water transports you to a state of bliss. Our expert therapists will await to pamper you with an array of bespoke treatments and massages, tailored to address unique needs and preferences.
