Humans are driven by senses.  Tactile, Olfactory, Visual, Hearing, Taste and Spiritual senses allow us to lead colorful, emotional, perfect, whole and complete lives.  The more we embrace and understand our senses, the more of a connection we have to our needs as humans.  A heightened connection to our need reveals the humanity with we associate:  grand personalities, warm souls, all with warm ways and refined tastes.   Cité Privée® is the essence of a life well lived, with locations, experiences, and hand made sensorial luxuries that evoke unique responses from each of our exclusively invited clients.  All of this made possible only by personalised service set in places waiting to be discovered. Whether it be a luxury home designed by our Creative Director, one of our petite maisons privées or a special edition of perfume formulated for a client's private jet, we are a cosmos of nuanced luxury and discovery.

In cooperation with a local Maltese consortium, Forbidden City® Hospitality Group's first branded and managed property, Cité Privée Maison Malte is an homage to privacy. Over a span of five years, we have delicately embarked on a process to reinvigorate the former homes of the Knights Hospitalier in the heart of Cospicua. This painstaking restorative process, literally performed by 100% manual labor due to the hidden location of the property, is a testament to our dedication to history and living within it. Discover nuanced luxury in the Mediterranean steps away from your vessel in the super yacht marina mere steps away. As an entirely curated experience from booking to goodbye, our invited guests can enjoy Malta organically and in a way only a select few ever do.
