Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort
Perfectly located by the water’s edge, overlooking the stunning St. Georges Bay, the Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort is part of the Corinthia Beach Resort which includes the Corinthia Hotel St George. A great place to watch the world go by and still be in the midst of the action, the hotel sits conveniently right on the picturesque coastline. It has its own private beach club, with easy access to the shore and a fully-equipped water sports centre. The neighbouring town of Paceville is only a short walk away, putting you in easy reach of local nightlife. Spoilt with both a wonderful location and impressive facilities, this resort provides an ideal Mediterranean coastal escape.
Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort is located in St. Julians, Malta, and forms part of the Corinthia chain of Hotels. Corinthia was founded by the Maltese family Pisani in Malta in 1962. The Pisani family sees Corinthia as a family-inspired hotel which makes this one of the biggest values of Corinthia, as they call “Spirit of Corinthia”. Corinthia wants to treat and look after guests as if they are welcomed back home. The company wants to support and positively encourage all the employees so that they can enjoy their work. Corinthia wants to focus on giving honest and discrete service. The mission and vision of Corinthia is based on the ‘Craftsmanship of Care’-philosophy which embraces the values of Authenticity, Passion, Understanding and Precision.
Less opulent than its five-star neighbour, the Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort, is modern, fresh and young by comparison. A linear and minimalist design is embellished with contemporary art that includes works by local artists that are exhibited and also sold on request. Rooms at the Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort are contemporary with tiled floors and a fresh, simple, Mediterranean style. All rooms have a balcony and sea view and family rooms and connecting rooms are available, as well as 10 suites and a Presidential Suite for those who want an extra quid in terms of space and luxury during their holiday.
There is a wide selection of food and drink at the many restaurants that are shared with the Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay as well as in the modern cafes located within the Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach Resort itself like the atmosphere of the Vinotheque Wine Bar and Bistro recalls the streets of Paris while the Da Marina Restaurant is ideal for lovers of Italian cuisine with home-made pasta, delicious pizzas, good steaks and much more. If you want a dinner at the top, you cannot miss the Caviar and Bull, popular among the rich Maltese, thanks to its modern Mediterranean and European cuisine, including a wide range of caviar, of course. Instead the Buddhamann is an Asian restaurant with glass walls and a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea. If you’re with kids, or just want something more casual, relax with a beer and a burger at the American-style Henry J Beans restaurant or if you’re in the pool there’s always the Broadside Terrace grill and cocktail bar. If you want to see something beyond the hotel’s culinary options, you can leave the resort and find many bars and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
Outside, the multi-level pool terraces offer plenty of sun loungers like in a typical five-star resort. Plus remarkable is the fortified tower of the 17th century (built by the Knights of St. John to defend the bay) which is next to the children’s pool. Seven outdoor pools (one for adults only, one for children and one beach) plus whirlpools, and this is just the beginning of the many possibilities to enjoy relaxation in Malta. Sea lovers will have easy access to the crystal clear waters off the rocky coast, which has been awarded Blue Flag status for water quality and environmental management. There is also a bit of sandy beach ideal for children, as well as the public beach just behind the bay.
If you visit the hotel in winter, do not worry because you will be able to use your swimsuit thanks to the heated indoor pool overlooking the outdoor terraces, as well as a hot tub, sauna and gym. The on-site water sports center offers everything from jet-skiing to paragliding, and there’s a dedicated dive school. When you feel satisfied with the activities carried out, the Spa will be the perfect place to enjoy a wide range of treatments, including outdoor massages in a gazebo, in summer.

Special City Guide: Malta
Steeped in prehistoric ruins, tales of the Knights of St. John and 7.000 years of history, Malta, along with neighbors Gozo and Comino, is a cultural powerhouse. Bleached by centuries of Mediterranean sun, Malta’s capital, Valletta, and the fortified Mdina guard art treasures, palaces and mighty cathedrals. Modern visitors aren’t the only ones who have found Malta alluring: With its Siculo-Arabic language, Italian-inspired food, British pubs and phone boxes, it’s apparent that throughout history everyone has wanted a taste of this remarkable island.
Malta’s craggy coastline has beautiful sandy beaches, most of which are the island’s north coast. Mellieha Bay, Malta’s largest sandy beach and Birzebbugia attract families with watersports, fun activities and shallow waters. Snorkel in the brilliant aquamarine seas at Blue Lagoon or catch the stiff northern breezes windsurfing off Ghallis Rock. Divers plunge into the deep blue to explore the reefs, caves and wrecks off Gozo and Comino. Even in midsummer, Gozo’s dune-flanked Red Beach is rarely crowded.
