Malta's biggest hotel inaugurated

€32 million Seabank Hotel, the largest and first fully all-inclusive resort in Malta is inaugurated.

10 August 2012, 12:00am
The hotel includes the largest hotel pool in Malta and it is surrounded by open spaces equivalent to almost one and a half football pitches.
The Seabank Hotel in Ghadira Bay, Mellieha underwent a €32 million refurbishment programme which has made it the first truly all inclusive resort on the islands.

The resort was re-inaugurated yesterday by the Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi who congratulated the Seabank Group and its chairman Silvio Debono and described the project as a "celebration."

The construction of the hotel lasted eight months and with its 550 rooms it is now the largest hotel in Malta. The Seabank Hotel boasts of a lagoon style pool area, a glass topped indoor pool, seven restaurants, bars, conference facilities and a state-of-the-art Spa.

Silvio Debono, owner and chairman of the Seabank Group said "the Seabank now is not a bigger hotel. It is a completely different one."

He explained that the all inclusive concept is designed for certain types of tourists, namely couples and families looking for a hassle-free holiday.

"They want everything at hand and choice in whatever takes their fancy. For themselves and for their children of different ages. Above all, they do not wish to put their hand in their pocket again after they arrive," Debono said.

The Seabank now is not a bigger hotel. It is a completely different one.

He added that it was not easy for the group to decide to invest €32 million "in the midst of a fierce financial storm raging in Europe. But again, we were not disheartened. Because I always believed in the potential of our staff and management. And above all, I always believed in this country."

Debono stressed that "when the private sector drives the economy and endevours to work with government and the public sector we can make a success out of all that we set our minds to."
