The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa on the island of Malta is to open new Athenaeum Spa in October.

Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Attard first opened 50 years ago, and the new spa marks the final phase of a significant refurbishment of the 147-bedroom property which began last year and has so far transformed the executive lounge, lobby and guest bedrooms.

The Athenaeum Spa has been created by interior designers Goddard Littlefair, the team behind many leading spas and hotels worldwide, including Konopiste ESPA Spa in Prague, Gleneagles in Scotland and Portland House in London.

Inspired by the relaxed charm of the Mediterranean, its is designed to evoke a sense of calm and serenity, and to be an oasis that’s flooded with natural light, ideal for relaxing in luxury. The details throughout the space have been meticulously considered to add to the experience – natural materials including stone are celebrated and contrasted against polished marble. Columns and archways give a sense of grandeur, while greenery brings the restorative beauty of the outdoors inside.

The Mediterranean inspiration continues into the treatment rooms, with natural ingredients like salts, honey, oils and botanicals being used for a variety of therapies. In partnership with skincare brand ESPA, the spa will offer products, treatments and expertise, guided by a holistic philosophy to enhance both physical and emotional wellbeing.

The spa will join the other ESPA spas across the Corinthia portfolio – the flagship ESPA Life at Corinthia London, Royal Spat at Corinthia Budapest and The Spa at Corinthia Lisbon.

Facilities will include a hot area comprising vitality pool, sauna, steam room, experience showers and heated beds, which looks out onto a secret garden where citrus, herbs and lavender ensure a nature-inspired holistic experience. The Athenaeum Spa sits within the gardens of the hotel’s pool garden area and also features an indoor swimming pool with jacuzzi, seven treatment rooms, relaxation lounge and terrace, gym and studio.

In a conscious effort for the spa to be connected to nature further, the spa experience advances outside. The vitality pool is both indoor and outdoor and the garden space features a plunge pool with relaxation deck and a pergola adorned with plants. Guests are invited to sit awhile, enjoy the surroundings and dine alfresco if they wish, experiencing the garden-inspired menu.

“We are delighted to be marking the final phase of the hotel’s refurbishment with a spa that will provide an unparalleled holistic health experience alongside a highly personalised service tailored to each guests’ needs,” said Adrian Attard, general manager at Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa. “The Athenaeum Spa’s unique attributes will bring an entirely new dimension to Malta’s luxury spa scene, from its carefully crafted treatments, thermal experiences and authentic design, we are creating an oasis that is truly confident, exquisite and elegant.”
