Island Hotels Group is a leader in vacation club accommodation in Malta and has long been a pioneer at the luxury end of the market. We have been involved in the industry since its inception in the early 1980s, and have been key players in ensuring the Maltese Islands retain quality offers in this sector. At present, our vacation ownership units are within the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Golden Sands, where we have an exceptional product in an outstanding location. Our success here has given us the impetus to further our involvement in the sector, bringing more accommodation into our vacation ownership portfolio, in particular at the new, eco-luxury Hal Ferh development near Golden Sands.
With vacation clubs, consumers have the opportunity to purchase condominium-style holidays at quality resorts that offer an array of amenities in popular destinations. The Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, set in serene countryside overlooking pristine coastline and a sandy beach, has provided the ideal location for vacation club members. Our units give immense flexibility in accommodation and offer generous space. Residents benefit from the superior facilities on offer at the resort including sports, water sports, in-house shops and deli, and restaurants.
We have developed Golden Sands, together with our partners Mayfair Overseas Holdings, into the Islands’ premier vacation club. Mayfair’s affiliate, the Azure Group, is responsible for the marketing and re-selling of our inventory at Golden Sands. It does this through the Island Residence Club, which was formed with Island Hotels Group in 2003 and has since become one of Europe’s most exclusive resort partnerships.
