Malta celebrates first Civil Unions Fair

Last week, we were delighted to escort a group of journalists from the UK’s leading LGBT media to celebrate Malta’s first civil unions fair at the iconic Phoenicia Hotel. Following the introduction of the Civil Unions Act last year, allowing LGBT couples to marry and adopt children, the Phoenicia is keen to extend its reach by offering specialist packages aimed at the gay market.

Having long been established as one of the island’s leading wedding venues, the five-star landmark hotel has been attracting an increasing number of UK couples over recent years. Sales and marketing director Rob Bruno explains, “Malta is a great destination for an overseas wedding; with 300 days of sunshine annually, incredible historic cities and attractions, excellent beaches and easy access from a host of UK departure airports.”

The change in law last April means the Phoenicia can now offer civil unions, in addition to its existing wedding packages, boasting exceptional value and a choice of breathtaking settings within the resort, which spans over seven acres.

A red-carpet launch party for the fair was held at the hotel on the Friday night, followed by a press conference the next day, attended by both local and international guests. During their stay, the group savoured the Phoenicia’s acclaimed Maltese fusion cuisine at the award-winning Pegasus and Phoenix restaurants.

The three-day trip, which was supported by the Malta Tourism Authority, also included a guided tour of UNESCO World Heritage City Valletta, lunch at Golden Bay beach in Mellieha and a visit to picturesque Mdina; known as the ‘Silent City’, with its spectacular gate famed as the entrance to King’s Landing in the TV phenomenon, Game of Thrones.
