Tiki Village: A shining example of Sustainable Tourism put into practice

Excelsior Hotel Malta Tiki Huts

VALLETTA, MALTA, July 2014: For this summer season, the Grand Hotel Excelsior is launching the Tiki Village as its newest breath-taking venue by the water’s edge. The Village has been set up close to the 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.

           

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.

This Summer, if you would like to enjoy a unique experience, relax at our Tiki Village and enjoy some refreshing drinks and light snacks in wonderful surroundings.
