About this holiday
We stay in a relaxed area of Sliema on the
waterfront, close to atmospheric restaurants,
bars and enticing shops, and Malta's largest
shopping center, The Point, is conveniently
located just 100m from our hotel. Days can
be spent relaxing in the hotel’s indoor swimming
pool, or following trails that lead through rocky
landscapes to tiny hamlets and secluded creeks.
Whereas, evenings can be filled with music in and
out of town, supping on fish soup and downing
a cisk (the local brew).
Easy to get around, the island and its capital,
Valletta, 4km away, beg to be explored. There
are colourful museums and theatres amid the
chequer board of streets and grand palaces linked
to the Knights of St. John, as well as both rocky
and sandy beaches.
Stroll down the Republic Street of Valletta where
shops sell delicate ceramics and lace. Visit
aristocratic mansions or tour the state rooms of
the Grand Master’s Palace. Welcome inclusions
during our trip are 2 free Thalasso Pool Sessions
and a complimentary harbour cruise to take in
more fabulous sights of the capital.
During your free time another suggestion is
to travel inland to Mdina, the former capital.
Discover the ‘Silent City’, so named because
of the tranquillity of its narrow streets which
entwine like a maze, springing lovely surprises
around every corner, from Baroque palazzos to
haunts once home to feudal lords of the Spanish
