Founded six decades ago in Malta by the Pisani family, Corinthia Hotels has evolved into a globally renowned luxury brand with properties in some of the world’s most prestigious destinations. Each hotel is an emblem of grand boutique luxury, offering the exclusivity and personal touch of a boutique establishment combined with the grandeur of a grande dame.  

A note from our Founder

"Corinthia began as a family business, and while it has grown into something rather different today, we still retain all the precious values of a family: caring for one another and offering each other personal support each and every day. We listen to and spur each other on, to bring out the best in one another – as professionals, and more importantly, as human beings."
