Put your 5 senses to work by exploring strait street … get strait to it with a simple mouse-over… Curiosity never killed the cat!
Believer or non-believer isn’t the point… with over 365 churches on the island a church visit is a must. But how about a quick detour before dinner to surprise your guests with an impromptu private church choir concerto in some of Europe`s most stunning Cathedrals and churches…
With over 300 days of sunshine per year in Malta, you do the math…. Gloom and doom is not on our agenda…
Kick your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes, or the warmth emitted by the salt crusted rocks… We’ve been spotted barefoot with teams building their own boats to escape dreaded fate on a desert island …  and sometimes sitting back to a lavish beach bbq under the stars, or a Bedouin themed chill out evening …
Get your sea legs ready… our traditional fishing boats and colourful ‘luzzus’ can be used for your very own regattas or private cruises… unless a fishing trip is something up your stream…
As you walk through our streets wafts of home-cooked meals and baking are sure to make your mouths water! Cheap, cheerful and sinful ‘Pastizzi’, to traditional farmhouse meals and fine-dining by highly decorated Chef Patrons, food is a department we don’t pay lip service to – we are Mediterranean after all!
You will be spoilt for choice with a number of castles and glorious palaces remnants of the rule of the Knights of Malta. Their grand rooms and grounds provide you with perfect venues. It is up to us to provide the historical and traditional experience with a modern twist…
Yes our temples are UNESCO World Heritage Sites but the breath-taking palazzo’s and old town houses converted to restaurants and event venues are equally impressive and promise to take you back in time! Traditional and full of character, or modern contemporary venues, you can have the best of both worlds.
Hopping from one village to another is easy and literally takes minutes… Vintage cars, limousines, putting your feet to good use in a Fred Flintstone style mean-machine or something a little more traditional like a horse drawn carriage ride on the famous local ‘Karrozzin’… Bring on the Champagne!
The colourful Traditional Malta bus is the very definition of quirk! We love it! Although no longer in public use, your chances with us are still on!  A simple transfer can give you a taste of our local life a few years back… as well as a good laugh!
How many people can you fit in a phone box? How many ways can you think of getting as many people as possible into a phone box? How long does it take you to get as many people as possible into a phone box? The ideas are crazy. The results – an incredible team spirit!
Mdina acts like a time capsule, transporting you to another era. The quaint, medieval walled town has a quiet, restrained atmosphere in keeping with its noble past – a perfect backdrop for a tailor-made event…. And it’s one of many … options are endless
The prickly pear is a local delicacy… we can pull over by one of the many ‘bajtra’ trees that dot the island to let you taste one fresh off the tree .. and why not just drop a bottle of its liqueur in the rooms on arrival with a small welcome note?  hmmm … perhaps a nougat bar? Or maybe a jar of Comino honey?
We’re a stone’s throw away from most major international airports. And if you are wondering if you require a visa to come and see us, give us a shout!
A Maltese Knight would be more than happy to welcome your guests to dinner! Grandmasters are also known to make an appearance at our events. Torch bearers, local traditional musicians and fire jugglers, local street vendors… themed nights aplenty…

Some adrenaline pumping speed… a whizz to our many coves and hidden spots accessible only by sea… a treasure hunt on water… or maybe a swim with tuna?
Does sipping a cocktail at sunset aboard a sailing yacht sound tantalizing? Chilling in luxury aboard fantastic yachts or renovated gullets or schooners? Masseurs on board? A dip at Blue Lagoon? Or perhaps a Sailing regatta?

TO BED

"If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters…"

TO BUSINESS

"One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions."

TO TABLE

"Without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, moribund."

TO FUN

"We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything, than when we are at play."

“If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters …”

If you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning because you`re so comfortable, then in our eyes, we have done our job right… We can actually advise you on the mattress level of comfort – Heavenly bed? Serenity bed? Call us crazy but we’ve actually tried and tested them all!

Whether you are thinking large capacities or personal and boutique, city or sea, modern or more traditional… Worry not… Malta`s extensive list of hotels including most of the renowned international hotel chains, is bound to satisfy your every requirement!
We have great working relationships with all the hotels on the island.

Plus our own little advantage…. The deal maker! 

Noel comes from the Hotels and Hospitality industry and having worked in most of the leading hotels on the island, he knows all the ‘ins and outs’ – insider tips galore :)

"One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions."

So go ahead… call us big headed :)….. but not because we like to blow our own trumpets. Far from it!! But because we don’t sit still…. We are always on the lookout for new hotspots, new crazy ideas and out of the box activities to make your next event just that little bit more special. 

We don’t believe in the cookie cutter approach… no 2 people are the same, no 2 companies are the same… so why should any 2 events be the same…

We are not going to blab on about how we can arrange the best venues, food, audio-visual equipment and everything else that goes along with having a flawless conference or event. We`ve been doing this for years, that stuff is a given.

In our vocab there are no “difficult” requirements… we call them a challenge… and we like them!! We thrive on the ‘out of the ordinary’ and like to push the boundaries… That is the only way you can get that ‘extra special’ factor.
From a back massage, manicure or reflexology session prior to a smallish meeting or a meeting set up in the cinemas with a fresh popcorn break to energize the team in a bigger conference, we like to focus on unconventional methods which stimulate the mind and soul to absorb more and create a general good feeling. 

That way you get the most impact out of your conference, whilst leaving the headaches and hassles to us. 

Cherry on the cake? We can help you sort out the VAT refund headache! Give Abigail a shout… the broker will sort it all out…

Does this sound like your cuppa tea? Speak to us … We`ll bring the ‘Mqaret’ and will get STRAIT to it!


“Without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, moribund.”

Exquisite culinary concoctions and a generous glass of noble Chardonnay under the blissful sun… We are in the Mediterranean after all…

Malta is no stranger to good food. The Islands’ cuisine is a ratatouille of Arabic, Italian, Spanish, French and British gastronomy which has evolved from years of foreign colonisation. What`s more is that the endless amounts of restaurants and venues, be it rustic traditional restaurants, posh fine-dining in baroque Palazzi or al fresco dining over the sea; the Maltese islands provide a  picture-perfect backdrop to any breakfast, lunch, dinner or event!

Ok, so we couldn`t help ourselves, we had to do a little bit of horn blowing… we had to set the scene! But all of the above is a given when Malta is the destination of choice.

The STRAIT difference lies in the unthinkable detail that we like to add to your events, dinners or lunches…From extravagant centre pieces, human light statues and intricately handmade menus… Live entertainment that goes beyond the usual live band - how about dancers on water, an LED brass band or your own private firework display over the bastions of the grand harbour at nightfall…
Or possibly laid back beach bum, Bedouin get-togethers on a private beach with moonlight percussionists…

And how about having the best professional sommeliers of the island suggest the best match for your event meals. We could even brand or personalise local wine bottles especially for your event.

The menu… food is one of the finest pleasures in life so forget run of the mill ‘tourist style’ menus! Food is an art and not a necessary pit stop! We like to work with the chef to design menus based on the theme of your event - from ingredients to garnishing to presentation, and sometimes bit more … how about a live cooking experience with your own chef’s moving table. A Feast for all the Senses!

Is this something you are after? Speak to us … We`ll bring the ‘Pastizzi’ and get STRAIT to it!

“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything, than when we are at play.”

Fun is the order of the day at STRAIT! 

We love to come up with crazy, motivational, recreational incentives and custom team building activities which help you fulfil your company objectives whilst bringing out the best in your team.  

From adrenalin pumping search and rescue weekend activities where you get your chance at being Stallone in Cliff Hanger, scuba diving to a ship wreck on the sea bed, to late-night treasure hunts to unravel the hidden secrets of an ancient, fortified medieval city by candlelight, we will tailor awe-inspiring activities especially for you.

But Fun shouldn’t be limited to incentives only! We believe Fun is an important element to be brought into conferences and meetings too! There is no better way to deliver a message and have it ‘stick’ then when the audience’s minds are stimulated and receptive to the message! 

We’ll get STRAIT to it… How about kicking off your conference with a drum and beats activity, or possibly have your audience weave a colourful web… we believe that any message brought across through a conference needs to be reinforced by a fun-filled activity which moves and inspires.

Are you stuck for new ideas? Worried that your team is too diverse to have a good activity that will put a smile on everyone’s face? Talk to the idea man… don’t ask us where or how he dreams them up, but leave this to Nabil.
