Malta: An historic building in the Grand Harbour of Senglea has been relaunched as a luxury hotel

A luxury all-suite hotel, Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour, has opened in Senglea in Malta.

The much-anticipated opening follows the extensive renovation of Sheer Bastion. The structure was originally built in 1554 during the reign of Grand Master Claude de la Sengle. Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour is a centrepiece of the Cottonera Regeneration Project that has seen the transformation of the Vittoriosa waterfront, which the hotel overlooks.

The design of Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour was overseen by Maltese architect Edwin Mintoff in collaboration with Milanese Interior Design firm Daaa Haus. Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour's luxurious minimalist design has preserved original historic features to blend natural and traditional materials with modern, clean lines.

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 property also features a rooftop pool featuring panoramic views of Vittoriosa and Cospicua and a rooftop terrace overlooking the Three Cities. Hammett's Macina Restaurant will be run by the renowned Chef and Restaurateur, Chris Hammett, serving Maltese cuisine with an international twist.

IBB Hotel Collection CEO Vladimir Saal said: "Our Cugó Gran hotel in Malta enjoys an unrivalled historic location and has been designed to surpass the needs of the most discerning traveller looking for a memorable experience. Cugó Gran Maċina has the potential to regain its former glory and live again as an integral historical part of the Grand Harbour. No expense has been spared to achieve this level of luxury."
