DoubleTree by Hilton Malta, located in St Paul’s Bay, is set to become the third hotel owned by the Tumas Group and managed by Hilton, nearly three decades since the opening of the iconic Hilton Malta.

When DoubleTree by Hilton Malta opens its doors in April, the number of rooms in properties belonging to the family-owned Tumas Group and managed by Hilton will exceed the 1,000 mark.

The Tumas Group has invested more than €18 million to upgrade the property following the closure of the iconic Dolmen Hotel last November. Significant changes are being made to its rooms, entrance, conference facilities and other facilities.

Some 900 staff are employed at the Tumas Group’s three hotels managed by Hilton, and all former Dolmen Hotel staff have been given the opportunity to form part of this new chapter in the history of Malta’s hospitality industry.

Hilton Malta, the jewel in the crown of the stunning, mixed-use Portomaso and marina development in the heart of St Julian’s, had undergone a multimillion euro refurbishment in 2016 after first opening its doors in 1998.

More than 290 rooms were renovated, together with the addition of new restaurants and the latest technology providing better energy efficiency.

The Tumas Group is also the proud owner of the Hilton Evian-les-Bains in France. This enchanting property, acquired by the group in 2004, comprises 170 rooms and offers guests captivating views of Lake Geneva.

The property, which became Hilton’s first resort hotel in France, also comprises state-of-the-art therapy rooms and both indoor and outdoor pool facilities.

Tumas Group Chairman Ray Fenech said: “Reaching the 1,000-room milestone with Hilton gives our Group immense satisfaction. We are extremely proud of our long-term association with one of the world’s leading operators, and have invested heavily in our personnel and properties to provide guests with the best facilities and a homely environment.”
