About Malta

The Neighbourhood

Tigne Suites is positioned in literally the best location in Malta, in the heart of Sliema at Tigne Point. Tigne Suites is a very short walking distance to the waterfront, beaches and the sea which has a wonderful view, overlooking the capital city of Valletta. Although it is a very centrally located townhouse, it is positioned on a quiet street.

Tigne Townhouse is positioned in a wonderful location in the cosmopolitan area of Tigne, Sliema in Malta and is a few moments walk away from Tigne Point. Tigne Point is one of the most forward-looking and comprehensive developments in Malta and is part of a €600 million project. Tigne Point bridges the gap between the island’s rich cultural heritage, and an altogether newer sense of luxury and sophistication. Pjazza Tigne is the heart of this development and is the largest square in the fashionable Sliema district.

All traffic has been routed underground, providing a wonderful 30 acre car-free zone at ground level. The development also provides extensive open public spaces, a series of foreshore walkways and a second open square is planned for the Tigne. Strong emphasis has been put on the restoration of the important historic sites in the area including Fort Tigne, St Luke’s Garrison Chapel, the Garden Battery and the Clock Tower blocks. These have now been restored to complement the contemporary architecture that characterises the site. An international grade business block, to be known as The Centre,  is currently under construction on the seafront side of Pjazza Tigne.

Valletta, the Capital of Malta

Valletta, the capital of Malta, will be the European Capital of Culture in 2018 which means lots of exciting events are taking place in 2017, 2018 and beyond. See www.vistmalta.com which provides you with a list of upcoming events.
