The Cugó Gran Macina is truly a hotel with a difference. Historical fortress walls contrast with modern interior design and bespoke luxury fittings. The 21 suites range from 40 square metres to an impressive 130 square metres. Most have unobstructed views of the Grand Harbour and the surrounding marina, high vaulted ceilings and ample natural light. The hotel offers a swimming pool, tucked discreetly on the rooftop of the annex building with a terrace looking out across the water to Vittoriosa and Cospicua. Other features include airy communal spaces, a fully-fledged bar, a fine dining modern Mediterranean restaurant, an events rooftop with panoramic harbour views and a boardroom for small conferences.
Unimaginable history seeps from the Macina’s ancient walls. Built almost half a millennium ago by the Knights of St. John the Macina has been a landmark for centuries.
