Nice expansion in Europe!

Located on the scenic coastal destination of St. Julian’s, the 153-room resort is expected to open in 2021 as the ideal destination for every occasion – from seamless business meetings to memorable family vacations.

Furthermore, the hotel will offer flexible event spaces and a five-story underground car park, providing a stress-free environment for corporate events, social gatherings and weddings.

St Julian is the least interesting place in Malta, in my opinion but a good fit for a Regency. it would be nice to get an Unbound or even a Park Hyatt in Valletta

This is the area where most of my family lives, so it's a great location for me I just wish it was opening sooner.

It's not a bad spot, depending on your reason for travel. You are short walking distance from the beach and from nightlife.

If you want to be in Valletta there is an SLH option, though it is not (yet?) partnered with Hyatt. I'm still holding out hope for that one.
