Initial works for Phoenicia’s refurbishment started back in November 2015 where excavation works were carried out under the supervision of Heritage Malta to preserve buried remains of historic walls. Following the extensive refurbishment the hotel opened back its door in April 2017.  The renovation of the spa area started in June 2017 and a topping up ceremony took place on 16th October where Vassallo Group Chairman Nazzareno Vassallo, the Group’s CEO Pio Vassallo, Vassallo Builders Deputy CEO Jonathan Buttigieg, management and staff were present to commemorate this project’s milestone.
