Our History & Background

Experienced management has a close hands-on,
family ownership approach and attitude


The roots of IHI go back to 1962 when Alfred Pisani and his family opened a fine-dining restaurant in Malta. Mr Pisani developed the restaurant into a hotel which opened in 1968 under the name Corinthia Palace Hotel Company Limited. 

Subsequently, the Corinthia portfolio grew significantly in Malta and internationally. To consolidate its owned hotels, manage the Corinthia brand, and undertake related business acquisitions, International Hotel Investments p.l.c. was established as the Group’s publicly traded holding company in 2000.
