Our ‘Spirit Of Corinthia’ : Our Story

My family and I started Corinthia in Malta in the 1960's, first opening a fine restaurant, and later building our first hotel, the Corinthia Palace. The world has changed much since those days, and so has Corinthia. Over the decades I have proudly watched the hotels grow and prosper and welcome guests from all over the world.

I like to see the lessons learnt from our early years as a guiding light helping us navigate through the complexities and tremendous opportunities of the modern world. In the 1960’s we didn’t have any money. But what we did have, in abundance, was unbending perseverance. And we preserved and adopted an optimistic attitude to transform challenges into successes. We were enterprising, clear in our thinking and constructively ambitious. We spotted timely opportunities and took action accordingly. We were bold, yet had our feet on the ground. We believed in our capabilities and we were committed to go all the way. We had a vision to build a great hotel company, and nothing was going to stop us!

To build and operate great hotels takes passion and ambition. To repeat this success, again and again requires authenticity and sincerity. To deliver caring service to our guests at the highest possible standards needs knowledge, experience, understanding and a fanatical attention to detail. These are the qualities that distinguish a true craftsman from an apprentice. To provide hospitality as we do is a timeless craft - as old, challenging and inspirational as that of being a master stone-mason, goldsmith, painter or musician.

Our mission is to provide our guests with this ‘Craftsmanship of Care’. In a world of mass produced experiences, we offer to our guests the made-to-measure. We believe the attention to detail that elevates a craftsman can similarly elevate the experience of visiting one of our hotels. This sentiment is embedded in everything we do, and everything we say. So what does this mean in our hotels? It means carefully constructing an environment that feels special the moment our guests arrive. It means surrounding them with materials, chosen for their quiet quality and avoiding purposeless display. True power always whispers.

The Craftsmanship of Care reveals itself in everything from the way a guest is welcomed, to the comfort of the room they are offered, to the thoughtfulness of the people who serve them. Rather like the care that is invested in creating the finest wine or the most beautiful furniture, caring for guests as we do is hard to achieve and expensive to deliver. But we hope that even with a brief stay in a Corinthia Hotel, our guests will discover that craftsmanship can shape caring for people as beautifully as it can shape a precious stone.

This is the Spirit of Corinthia. The way we value authenticity, the trouble we take on individual details, grounded with a style that's discreet rather than merely ostentatious. All of these are the little ways we try to make a big difference - just as craftsmen have always done through the ages.

At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website, if you do not think we have – we will refund 50% of your booking. When you book a stay at any Corinthia Hotel on Corinthia.com, we are so confident that we provide the best rates that if you find a better one anywhere else online on a non-Corinthia website, we will match it and discount that rate by a further 50%. Should you find a lower rate elsewhere, please submit a claim within 24 hours of your original booking and we will respond within two working days.

Process for Making a Claim -

Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels on corinthia.com, you find a lower rate for the same hotel, room type, inclusions, stay dates and payment conditions, please contact the relevant email address below to make your claim. All claims must be made with 24 hours of making the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).
Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will, subject to room availability, match the lower rate and discount that rate by an additional 50%.

Terms and Conditions:

Corinthia Hotels guarantee the best online rate on corinthia.com based on the following terms and conditions:

1. Your original reservation must have been made through corinthia.com.
2. The lower rate must be found and the claim submitted by email within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel. If the original reservation was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable.
3. The Best Rate Guarantee only applies to published rates available to the general public online, which can be found and booked immediately without any kind of restriction or payment restrictions.
4. The lower rate found must be for exactly the same booking criteria - the same hotel, the same room type, same inclusions, the same stay dates, same number of guests, and the same rate description. The cancellation and advance purchase policy and all other terms and conditions of the stay must also be identical. If the claim refers to a reservation consisting of several nights’ accommodation, the average rate for each night will be compared to the average rate for each night, for an identical reservation, using the website where the lower rate is found.
5. Corinthia Hotels will verify the lower rate claim and respond within two working days of the claim being made. *Claims will be processed from Monday to Friday, between 9am to 5pm, at the hotel’s local time.
6. The rate comparison will be made net of any taxes, gratuities or any other fees or charges associated with the room rate, and the lower rate must still be available at the time the hotel validates the claim.
7. The Best Rate Guarantee is void where prohibited by law. Corinthia Hotels reserves the right to modify or cancel its Best Rate Guarantee policy at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
8. Corinthia Hotels has the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including without limitation, determining that the lower rate found is genuinely available and that the claim meets all terms and conditions. In case of dispute, Corinthia Hotels' decision is final.
9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels’ reasonable control.
11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels’ rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.
