It is hard to believe that this bustling 30-acre site was derelict just a few years ago. But starting with a clean slate has its advantages… The wide-open spaces allowed the developers to plan everything down to the finest detail.
Some of the most established businessmen in Malta came together with a dream to turn the Tigné peninsula into a hub of complementary activities. The MIDI consortium engaged cutting-edge architects and designers to make the most of this unique waterfront location with its stunning views of Manoel Island and the World Heritage capital city, Valletta, with its centuries-old fortifications.
Roads and parking were placed underground to create a welcoming pedestrian environment, with a boardwalk around its perimeter, skirting restaurant terraces and an exclusive lido, as well as heritage sites embedded into the site.
Residential blocks were set into landscaped areas, encircling the piazza with water features, surrounded by cafes and restaurants, high-end shops, and the most popular shopping mall on the island.
Sliema is the most fashionable town on the island, long sought after by both local residents and expatriates. Its pavement cafes attract people throughout the day and numerous hotels cater for many tourists and businessmen who visit the island every year.
The shops lining the main roads offer an impressive range of recognisable international brands and restaurants tempt you all the leading cuisines of the world. Wherever you and your team come from, you will feel immediately at home in this cosmopolitan town.
There is an incredible choice of quality accommodation for all budgets within walking distance, with ample parking on site and frequent public transport connections nearby.
