Catering the Inauguration of Valletta’s First 5-star Hotel!

AX Events were proud to be the chosen caterers for the spectacular evening!

It was perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated events of the summer when Valletta’s first 5-star luxury hotel was officially inaugurated. The grand opening of Rosselli – AX Privilege took place on Thursday, 12th September, and the AX Events team were honoured to be the chosen caterers for the evening.

As Malta’s leading outdoor catering company, AX Events were the first port of call for the team organising the opening of Rosselli. The occasion saw over 700 people – including the Honourable Prime Minsiter of Malta Dr Joseph Muscat, Honourable Ministers, Parliamentary Secretaries and distinguished guests – gather outside the hotel on Merchants Street, Valletta. Sopranos performed from the hotel’s traditional Maltese balconies, musicians played their instruments at the bottom of Merchants street, and a visual projection played out on the beautifully-lit façade of Rosselli.

“A big well done goes to AX Events, headed by Kevin Callus and Camille Brincat, our chosen caterers for tonight! As always, you manage to outstand and surpass your standards, event after event. I am sure that what we are about to taste and experience tonight is exceptional”, said Mrs Claire Zammit Xuereb, Group Hospitality Director of AX Hotels.

As guests started to arrive, the AX Events team welcomed them with a glass of melon- or berry-infused prosecco. Soon after, the outside caterers began to serve a delicious array of canapés.

The chosen menu was prepared with the theme of the event in mind, therefore only the best ingredients were used to complement the occasion of such high-standing. The canapés included the rich flavours of lobster, prawn, caviar, a mix of sushi rolls, foie gras and rabbit, to name a few. Following a series of speeches from the Prime Minister, Mayor of Valletta, Chairman of AX Group and Group Hospitality Director, Dr Joseph Muscat and guests were given a tour of the hotel. Outside, people were treated to a selection of mouth-watering sweets, including macaroons and ice cream covered in gold-leaf.
