Abela said: “It is crucial that we go to the next leap by continuing to improve the quality of the tourist product that our country offers.”

Maurice and Walter Zammit Tabona opened their first 40-bedroom, Tigne Court Hotel in the country, establishing Fortina Investments in 1948.

Fortina Investments CEO Edward Zammit Tabona said: “We strongly believe in our product; the hotel itself is located in one of the best locations in Malta with the iconic views of Valletta, and together with Barceló Hotel Group we are focused on achieving the projected results.

“We are strong believers in the potential and resilience of our country as a tourist destination, as evidenced by the robust post-Covid bounce-back experience in 2023.”
