The three-star Sliema Hotel on the seafront has been established by the Malta Tourism Authority as the second quarantine hotel. This follows a call to locate the second abode for quarantined tourists arriving in malta after the Marina Hotel in St George’s Bay was approaching full capacity during the early periods of this month. Run by ST Hotels, the second quarantine is said to provide 70 rooms, with anyone arriving in Malta without an approved vaccine certificate or is unvaccinated will be charged at least €1,400 per room for the 14-days stay.
The accommodation fee does not include food, drink or any other service. Anyone who does not complete the mandatory quarantine period faces a fine which can amount up to €10,000. With government easing the ban on unvaccinated travellers, Maltese residents entering the country without a vaccine certificate must apply for permission to avoid receiving the hefty bill. Under-12s, and those with medical reasons for not being vaccinated, will be allowed to travel using PCR tests taken up to 72 hours before arrival.
Despite seemingly reaching full capacity earlier this month, number of guests at the Corinthia Marina Hotel started to drop as on Monday morning there were 116 recorded occupied rooms out of the hotel’s 200. Hotels with a central location is allegedly preferred, with the property licensed, up to date with arrears and no pending enforcement issues.
