Review: Fortina Spa Resort
Accommodation - Resort/holiday village
Tigne Seafront, Sliema, Malta
Fortina Spa Resort, Malta
Fortina is a unique Five Star Resort Hotel and Spa, ideally located in the heart of Sliema on the sea front with a stunning view of Valletta and St Paul’s church. It is only minutes away from the ferry terminal, which goes to Valletta. It is also the departure point for all boat cruises going to Gozo and Camino and around Malta. The Point, Malta’s biggest shopping mall is just behind the hotel. The trendy shopping streets of Torri and Bisazza are only a few minutes walking distance from the hotel.
Guests can enjoy a memorable stay in spacious air-conditioned rooms, equipped with satellite TV, mini bar, coffee maker and kettle with a fine selection of teas and coffee to choose from. The rooms come with either a view into the tropical garden around which the hotel is built or with a direct view of the sea.
The hotel focuses on health and wellbeing, with five swimming pools, state of the art spa; a fitness centre equipped with the latest equipment, medical and dental clinics plus physiotherapy and rehabilitation centres. Spa Santé is the ultimate in relaxing environments with a variety of treatments on offer. The facilities include a Whirlpool, Reflexology Basin, Kneipp Walk, Aqua Meditation, Laconium, Ice Grotto, Steam Room, Sauna and Fun Showers.
The ambitious idea of wellbeing can also be found in bedrooms if you wish to pamper yourself. The 36 spacious bedrooms accommodate a double shower steam room, a therapeutic massage bath with several programs, a Dermalife machine to cleanse the body and a hot tub Jacuzzi placed behind the bed next to the window that opens on to the garden. Nine of them even have a small private pool and balcony.
All this is complemented with the brilliant idea of ‘around the world’ dinning, offering an amazing range of cuisines to choose from. There are six international restaurants serving Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Thai and Mediterranean food with a choice of indoor or outdoor dinning.
Michael Zammit, the owner of Fortina also owns Captain Morgen Cruises and the Big Red Bus offering ‘Hop on Hop Off’ sightseeing. Guests get the benefit of a complementary day bus tour of Malta and a two hour cruise around the Grand Harbour of Valletta and the three cities of Cospicua, Senglea and Vittoriosa.
Fortina also enjoys easy access to the rocky seafront beaches just outside the hotel for swimming and snorkeling. It is only a five minute walk from the hotel to the Diveshack, a long-standing dive centre that offers diving courses and adventure dives from beginners up to advanced divers of all ages by experienced qualified divers.
