The Fortina Spa Resort is definitely one of the finest hotels in the Sliema area and has a deserved top notch reputation in every department. It has grown substantially over the years with several restaurants and some state of the art pools allowing guests and patrons to enjoy the ultimate in luxury. One intriguing aspect of the Fortina is its dedication to the Asian cuisine market with a number of Japanese and Chinese (as well as Thai) restaurants that have an enthusiastic and consistently growing clientele.

As regards location, the Fortina is certainly up there with the very best. It is situated just a few metres away from the massive Tigne Point development and is a stone’s throw’s away from the centre of Sliema where all the action takes place. Although buses run close to the hotel every few minutes, taxis are also very much the standard form of transport for the up market clientele at the hotel. The stunning views of Valletta just across the sea make the Fortina one of the most sought after and most desirable five star resorts in Malta.

The rooms at the Fortina Spa resort are also of excellent quality throughout, as is to be expected from this five star hotel. The finishings are of the highest standards with the bed linen truly something else. The bathroom finishings are also of excellent quality and the large executive suites also provide bathing with the utmost luxury. Another intriguing aspect of this resort is the fact that it is built around a tropical garden so the lush vegetaion really provides an oasis in the heart of Sliema.

The catering offer at the Fortina Spa resort is second to none. Having already indicated the oriental aspect of the restuarant, one may also note that this is just part of a concept that is called ‘Dine around the World’ by the hotel management. Each restaurant (and there are nine in number) takes you to a different part of the world with Mediterranean and Arab cuisine also represented.

However the jewel in the crown at the Fortina must be its spa facilities that are surely the best on the island. The hotel has been a pioneer in health tourism and hundreds of guests have been flown in specially from abroad to indulge in the Fortina’s state of the art spa facilities. The Therapeutic Spa bedrooms are also a wonder to behold and there have been several guests who spoke glowingly about their experience here – most of them famous celebrities.

The Fortina Spa resort is definitely one of the finest hotels in Malta especially for its cuisine and health facilities. It is a jewel in the crown for the Sliema area and luxury is definitely its watchword.
