A shining example of Sustainable Tourism

Excelsior Hotel Malta Tiki Huts

This summer season, the Grand Hotel Excelsior has launched the Tiki Village as its newest breath-taking venue by the water’s edge. The Village has been set up close to the Hotel’s Marina, so guests can revel in stunning harbour views while relaxing in a beautiful and exotic ambiance.

The Tiki Village is comprised of 10 Villas, which can be rented out by guests, and its unique Blue Ocean Bar. Each Villa seats six people and additional seating is available within the venue. Guests can enjoy light snacks at lunchtime, and delicious platters will be served in the evening.

Production of Tiki Sculptures
The inception of the Tiki Villas took place in The Philippines when the hotel owners visited self-employed carpenters who earn their living by producing indigenous products. The base of the Villas is comprised of bamboo, while the roof is made of Nipa, a species of palm native to the coastlines of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Indeed the Villas are typical to the style of carpentry commonly used in The Philippines.

By opting to purchase the Villas from self-employed carpenters, as opposed to buying mass-produced products, the Grand Hotel Excelsior is able to offer a more authentic experience to guests. Furthermore the hotel is promoting Fair Trade whilst assisting workers in The Philippines to make a living and improve their quality of life. It is a shining example of Sustainable tourism put into practice.

The Grand Hotel Excelsior is a luxury 5 star hotel in Malta on the doorstep of Valletta, Malta’s capital. Stay updated with what’s happening at the Grand Hotel Excelsior and other events taking place in Malta.

Time to Relax: July Spa treatments

Ylang Spa packages

For the month of July, Le Grand Spa has come up with some great spa treatments centered around Ylang ylang.

This essential oil is created from the aromatic, star-shaped flowers of the ylang-ylang tree that grows natively in Malaysia, Indonesia and other lowland countries of east Asia. Today, the tree is also cultivated in Madagascar, where it thrives in the country’s moist, tropical climate and volcanic soil. Ylang ylang has a long history of use in both the East and the West. In Indonesia, the petals of ylang ylang flowers are scattered over the bed of newlywed couples on their wedding night. In the Philippines, healers have long used ylang ylang in salves to treat insect bites, snake bites, cuts, burns and scrapes.

So if you would like to try out this great product that enhances well-being,

The Benefits of a Massage

The relation between physical and mental wellbeing has a great impact on the quality and length of life and on the society as a whole. Mental wellbeing supports good physical health and vice versa. Therefore it is important that we pay equal attention to not only how we look, but also to how we really feel on the inside. Having a busy work and personal schedule, hurrying from one place to another, getting stuck in a traffic jam, multitasking ….the list goes on and on. Over time society adjusted to this lifestyle and therefore we tend to forget the negative effects this can leave on the body and mind. Stop for a second and rewind your daily routine. What does your morning look like? Are you one of those people who get ready in a few minutes before rushing out of the door to a busy work schedule full of deadlines and meetings whilst holding onto your favourite reusable coffee cup? Do you manage to fit in a short work-out before or after work? Do you even make time for a healthy breakfast before embarking on your a day? As a result, such a lifestyle can eventually lead to cardiovascular disease, obesity, anxiety, built up tension, stroke and many other complications. It is very important that we take a break for ourselves and every once in a while, truly enjoy our free time whilst contributing to our over all health and health-being.

There are several massage techniques one can choose from, which are suitable for the individuals needs.
