For those businesses who are considering wherther or not to rent offices in the trendy town of Sliema, or possibly those who are ready to go a step further and invest in buying an office in Sliema, it may be helpful to note that the most popular area of the town is known as the ‘Strand’ or the ‘Ferries’ and it overlooks Manoel island and the capital city of Valletta. This popular stretch of seaside Maltese real estate is where the crème de la crème of Offices in Sliema (and other commercial properties) are located.
Notwithstanding all it’s benefits and attractive features, businesses looking to set up their operation in a Malta Office often come to realise that Sliema Office Space is not as readily available as one may wish – and not as straighforward either.

For those who are not as well connected or working through a reputable commercial real estate broker, looking for Offices in Sliema may result in long waiting times for new office blocks to be completed, as their completion date may not be in line with the timelines of the company that is looking for an office space to call their corporate home.
Being such a popular locality, Sliema also comes at a premium when compared to less popular destinations – and rightly so. It can offer a lifestyle that many only dream of, and its easily one of the most desirable/talked about destinations in Expat commnunities around the islands.
Situated along one of Malta’s most scenic coasts, some Sliema Seafront Offices can offer views of Manoel Island, providing a green and limestone backdrop to Sliema Creek, the stretch of sea inside the harbour where ferries take-off thousands of tourists every year to nearby locations like Valletta, for harbour cruises, and island cruises that go as far as Comino and Gozo.
Valletta views and Bastion views may also be enjoyed from offices on the Sliema Strand, or the Ferries (as it’s also known and referred to). The South-facing, Seafront offices along this part of Sliema’s coast are some of the most popular and most in demand offices all over the island. Apart from being popular because they’re in Sliema they are also highly sought after because south-facing offices offer the brightest and longest duration of natural light throughout the day. This is a feature that many companies look for – Natural light always seems to come up as one of the most important qualities for offices for rent in whichever part of the islands.
Along the Sliema Strand, Tigne Point also offers a fantastic close up of Valletta and the Bastions that enclose it. Business centres in this part of Sliema command some of the highest rates per square metres in all the island. The peninsula – on which The Midi project known as ‘The Point’ has been developed – turned into a bustling ‘city in a city’, where a shopping mall and a luxury lifestyle development have brought about lots of investment to the area.
It is no surprise that the office blocks in this area present some of the best views, and cutting edge technologies and are in high demand with long waiting ques that only the most established and premium companies may consider expressing interest in.
Most of the companies that occupy offices in these areas are operators in the Online Gaming industry, Technological companies, Finance companies, Banks, and Aviation companies.
Back to back with Tigne Seafront is a Stretch of coast in Tigne’ known as Qui-si-sana. This North facing coastline offers open seaviews as far as the eyes can see. There is a limited selection of offices for rent available along this part of Sliema that have traditionally been used by operators in the financial sector, as well as gaming companies, and real estate operators too
Qui-si-sana connects to Tower Road, which is easily Sliema’s most popular and another one of the most desired addresses in all of Malta. Tower road is associated with up-market properties, and families and companies kept in high regard. The seafront buildings that are scattered along Tower road offer impressive views of the sea, with a rocky beach that starts from Tigne and goes all along the Sliema seafront, offering lots of hangouts and places for residents and visitors to enjoy during their off time.
Having a beach so close and accessible makes Sliema a strong contender in the search for best offices in Malta. Workers in Sliema Offices love the fact that they can go from work-mode to beach mode within 5 to 10 minutes as most offices and office blocks are located very close to the sea and the many beach clubs, bars and lidos located in these areas.
Being a popular tourist destination, Sliema also offers many entertainment options and is a popular cafe spot for locals and tourists alike. Office workers tend to enjoy this variety of cafe’s during their before getting to the office, during their lunchbreak, or for after work drinks. It’s just so convenient, and everything is within walking distance.
Fitness fans will be happy to know that Sliema enjoys one of the most active communities in the island, and many office workers make use of the gyms in the area, together with the many outdoor facilities available – the most popular being the promenade where thousands of people go for their daily walk or jog at all hours of the day.
As mentioned above, the benefits that Sliema offers, namely being – it scores highly with employee satisfaction – it comes at a price. Sliema is considered amongst the costliest of the office solutions available on the islands, and whilst offices in the charming Sliema backroads are not as costly as the ones on the seafront, they’re still priced higher than most of the offices on the rest of the islands.
Having said that, some companies argue that being at a disadvantage when it comes to hiring human resources can prove costlier than rent. And if a quality office in Sliema will bring human resources knocking at their door, then the investment in a premium or luxury office in Sliema is worth the higher rental cost.
Companies who are looking for most cost effective solutions may opt for other commercial localities. Some popular alternatives are Gzira Office Space, and Msida Office Space for the more cost-conscious. For those looking to set up a small operation, Serviced Offices may be an option. This would help alleviate the set-up costs associated with starting up an operation that would help the company focus on running their operation rather than setting up an office in the crucial start up phase of their business.
