The Colours of Malta Novelties Journey – Week 8

This week’s journey took us to the bastion walls of Valletta to meet Mark Weingard, founder of Iniala Group.

Mark explained to us the concept of this amazing project, the inspiration and the results he’d like to achieve once the hotel opens its doors. Mark is full of energy and excitement as he talks about his project, now near completion after 7 years in the making.

Fabulously designed and decorated suites boasting imposing Grand Harbour Views, each uniquely finished to the highest of standards, a restaurant with the most scenic views and exquisite cuisine and a spa to relax in, all in the Capital City!

Mark goes on to say that this project will be the Top Luxury Experience in Malta but also a home away from home!

We can’t wait to experience the luxury of this new property, which opened its doors in mid October.

Malta among the lowest COVID-19 mortality rates in Europe

There are only two states that have reported better results than us: the Vatican City which has reported 11 positive cases, Gibraltar with 144 and the Faeroe Islands with 187. None have registered a COVID-19-related death so far.

Case history dedicata al mercato italiano

Colours of Malta presenta a Conventions Malta una case history dedicata al mercato italiano.

Nessuno ci vieta di ricordare e di programmare gli eventi futuri!

Leggiamo la testimonianza della DMC Colours of Malta:

Numero partecipanti: 350

Date: 19-23 giugno 2019

Hotel: HILTON MALTA

Questo evento è stato prestigioso per Malta in quanto i partecipanti erano tutti partner di alto livello di un’agenzia finanziaria rinomata.

L’incentive house MARE20 ha invitato l’amministratore delegato di Colours of Malta, Davide Cachia, a Milano, per fare una presentazione su Malta.

Il programma creato è stato attentamente studiato per soddisfare le loro esigenze. Gli eventi precedenti erano sempre stati organizzati nei migliori Resort in Sardegna, Grecia e altri paesi del Mediterraneo, quindi abbiamo iniziato proponendo i migliori Resort 5 * di Malta.

Alla fine Malta è stata scelta per la vastità delle diverse attività che possono essere svolte in poche ore di tempo libero. Il programma prevedeva numerosi incontri presso l’Hilton Hotel in cui si svolgeva l’incontro annuale con i partner e nel loro tempo libero potevano scegliere tra una scelta di tour culturali che coinvolgevano Valletta, le tre città, il sud e i templi.

I tour erano di due tipologie: visite guidate private o attività più attive come gite in barca con una sosta sulla spiaggia con pranzo, una giornata a Gozo, l’isola gemella di Malta, e altre attività ricreative a loro scelta.

Malta è la destinazione ideale in quanto si possono fare molte cose in poche ore grazie alle brevi distanze.

In una delle serate abbiamo organizzato una visita a Mdina, antica capitale di Malta, con un concerto privato nella Cattedrale, seguito da una cena in uno dei principali ristoranti di Malta.

E’ stata organizzata anche una cena barbecue a bordo piscina dell’Hilton e la cena di gala è stata presso la magnifica Sacra Infermeria con un cocktail sul Rooftop appena aperto.

L’Hotel prescelto è stato l’Hilton, che è una delle migliori strutture 5 stelle proprio nel cuore di St Julians, vicino a ristoranti, bar e casinò. L’Hilton dispone di sale riunioni multiuso e di un ampio centro congressi in grado di ospitare fino a 1400 persone. Le camere da letto sono state recentemente rinnovate così come l’area pubblica.
