Malta’s luxury hotel Corinthia Palace has announced its exciting partnership with Michelin-starred restaurant Bahia. As part of this partnership, the popular Michelin-starred restaurant will move from its historic and converted mansion in Lija to its new home in Corinthia Palace this year.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bahia, which recently earned its first Michelin star, to Corinthia Palace,” says their General Manager Adrian Attard. “Bahia’s reputation for exceptional quality, innovative cuisine and service excellence are values long shared by Corinthia and this synergy, as well as our mutual ethos, make this an ideal partnership. Along with the recently reimagined Athenaeum Spa, the addition of Bahia to our portfolio ensures that the Corinthia Palace remains the quintessential address for travellers looking to experience the real Malta.”
“Change is challenging and the decision to move from the place where it all started was not an easy one,” remarks Colin Ciantar, owner of Bahia. “Nevertheless, we have always pushed ourselves out of our comfort zone. Our meetings with the team at Corinthia highlighted that we shared similar values and, considering its history, the idea of moving to the Villa upstairs was also very intriguing. Although we will miss the space in Lija, we are committed to continue delivering a holistic experience to our diners in a comfortable and contemporary space, both indoors and outdoors. Our skilled team will pursue its journey to bring innovation and respect towards an array of high-quality ingredients while highlighting Malta’s culinary heritage in a contemporary and creative manner.”
