It all started way back in the early 80’s with the acquisition of the old Pot of Gold and a 9 room guesthouse.

Pot of Gold in the 80’s


The early nineties was characterised by a strategic decision to transform the company into a leading group in the hospitality industry. Initially the Seabank Hotel comprised 80 twin rooms, a pizzeria, pool bar, restaurant and lounge bar facilities.

Seabank Hotel - Phase 1


In late 1993 the Group acquired the Tunny Net complex, which is strategically located on the water’s edge some 200 metres away from the Hotel. During 1994/95, the building was completely demolished and a new complex constructed, comprising an a la carte restaurant, pub, disco club, beach lido and water sports facilities.

In line with the Group’s expansionist strategy, the Porto Azzurro complex was acquired in 1995. It incorporates a 99 room aparthotel complex supported with various amenities. During 1998, a further 25 hotel rooms were added to this complex. Part of this complex is today offered on timeshare basis.

During the period 1996 - 2000 the Seabank Hotel underwent major modifications, increasing its room stock level to 251 with the inclusion of additional amenities such as conference facilities, indoor pool, sauna, and a gym.

In November 2000, the Group opened the Hard Rock Café in Malta under a franchise agreement. This was a first for the Group in establishing a direct partnership with such a world-renowned brand name.

In June 2000, the Group acquired another property. After extensive renovations, this 300 room hotel was opened in early 2002. It targets the four star plus market. It is today operated under the name of Hotel San Antonio and Spa Resort.
