Tunnynet Resort Malta Opens to Rave Reviews

Tricon Foodservice Consultants have completed their latest F&B operations design project in Malta with the opening of the completely redesigned Tunnynet resort, transforming it into a modern restaurant and boutique hotel complex.

DB Hotels & Resorts, their client, opened the redevelopment in stages over the last few months and are already receiving rave reviews of the luxurious site in Mellieha Bay Malta. With the opening of the Blu Bar, the existing café terrace area has been completely stripped back and remodelled to properly refit the areas with new F&B concepts developed by Tricon.

The principal requirement of Tricon’s brief was to develop new F&B operational concepts to provide a detailed briefing for the architect and interior designer. This included:

●      Establishing the outline operational concepts

●      Advice on operational space planning for all F&B outlets

●      Preparing indicative food and beverage menu and tariff recommendations

A detailed market study of Mellieha enabled developed concepts which were fully considered in a local context. Local competition was analysed, considering styles of cuisine, service and price points, whilst also analysing potential customer demographics to determine any likely gaps and market opportunities.

Tricon’s understanding of wider food and beverage trends informed their decision to create a variety of dining experiences, including “Maya”, a Mediterranean themed all day dining concept, “Blu Bar”, a family friendly seafood grill and “Tokyo Joe” an upscale Asian Restaurant.

Tricon’s final Food and Beverage Concept Brief not only identified the market positioning and operational style of each concept, but also the intended look and feel, ambience and kitchen infrastructure. This work provided a clear brief for the design team to progress with the development of the facilities.
