The hotel is situated on the waterfront in a quieter part of Sliema, with Sliema’s shops and facilities just 500m away. It is an all-inclusive property with an edge because the facilities are amongst the best in its class for a four-star hotel. Guests are able to do as much or as little as they choose, with ideal facilities for relaxing or active types. The Fortina overlooks the island’s majestic capital Valletta and has some great views from the front, out to sea and over to Marsamxett harbour. For such a large hotel there is a very relaxed feel and the overall ambience is a mellow and sophisticated one. The Fortina Spa Resort has established itself throughout Europe as one of the best short break spa treatment centres, and offers treatments of all kinds to suit all budgets. Décor is elegant and designed to relax the senses. The tropical gardens and many flowers scattered around the garden/pool area offer a warm and tropical presence.
