Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Malta targets educational travel community in the US

Building on its success in January hosting students for an international residency from Tufts University in Boston, Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Malta is now targeting the educational travel community in the US to help fill its five-star meeting space.

To help drive this new business, the Corinthia Palace recently became an affiliate member of ETC (Educational Travel Consortium), a body representing travel planners for US universities, museums and professional organizations.

Professor Deborah Nutter, who founded and runs the program at Boston’s Fletcher School at Tufts University, cited Malta as the best of the 17 residencies held to date, “Our choice of the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa put us right in the heart of Malta, and we were so impressed with the level of care shown to us; the hotel’s whole team exemplified Malta’s aura. Malta provides an excellent base for high-level learning in a setting that is unique. We will be back.”

The hotel’s ballroom on the ground floor was used for their two-week visit and this space can hold up to 450 for a reception and up to 400 theater style.

In addition, the hotel, located in a tranquil garden setting in Attard in the center of the island, has four boardrooms in the ground floor Business Center holding between 18 to 20 delegates in each.

Meeting room technology includes free Wi-Fi and screens, with projectors and laptops on request.

“The island (of Malta) truly exemplifies everything we were covering,” says Prof Nutter. “It links three continents and is giving its input on a multitude of major international issues, including at EU level. Malta feels like it is at the very center of things, and our students certainly appreciated that fact.”

Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is the original flagship of Corinthia Hotels, opened in 1968. Located in the heart of the island of Malta, adjacent to the Presidential Palace, the 150-room five-star Corinthia Palace exudes grace and historic charm. It is positioned between the island’s capital Valletta and Mdina, the picturesque medieval silent city that is still inhabited till this day. This opulent hotel offers the leisure guest an extensive range of facilities, including the Athenaeum Spa and Health Club, complete with a wide range of revitalizing treatments and indoor and outdoor pools. With a century-old restored villa as its main dining venue, this hotel is all about warmth, personal attention, and traditional elegance. The hotel boasts top-class restaurants, including Rickshaw, offering Asian-fusion dishes, and the al fresco Summer Kitchen. For corporate guests, modern business facilities are available, with a large conference room easily accommodating 450 delegates, and six syndicate rooms including two boardrooms for smaller groups. Corinthia Palace is a 21st-century stately hotel, created by experts with a passion for craftsmanship and an understanding of world-class service. Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is an award-winning member of Corinthia Hotels’ collection of five-star hotels founded by the Pisani family of Malta.
