Cugó Gran Maċina Grand Harbour is the centrepiece of the Cottonera Regeneration Project of Malta's Vittoriosa waterfront, which the hotel overlooks. Set in the Sheer Bastion, the structure was originally built in 1554 during the reign of Grand Master Claude de la Sengle. Luxurious minimalist design has preserved the original historic features to blend natural and traditional materials with modern, clean lines.
The stylish and comfortable suites all offer unobstructed views of the Grand Harbour. They feature large living rooms and bedrooms, Milano sofa beds, free-standing baths and walk-in showers.
The design hotel also features a rooftop pool and terrace featuring panoramic views of Valletta and the Three Cities. Hammett's Macina Restaurant will be run by the renowned Chef and Restaurateur, Chris Hammett, serving Maltese cuisine with an international twist.
